Kym Whitley: Double Dose of “Raising Whitley”

When actress/comedienne Kym Whitley’s “Raising Whitley” reality show returns on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN Network early next year, the show will expand from 30 minutes to one hour.

During a recent appearance for McDonald’s in New Orleans, the “Black Dynamite” star Whitley shared her excitement about the show’s second season.

“We’re going to an hour, which should be great,” Whitley said.

Production on season two of “Raising Whitley” just began in Los Angeles.

Kym Whitley & Joshua

Raising Whitley” chronicles the journey of the first-time mom, who adopted her son Joshua after her mentee left her name as his guardian after having him at the hospital. Whitley is raising her son with the help of her friends—whom she calls “The Village”—while trying to maintain her hectic Hollywood career.

“Raising Whitley,” along with “Iyanla: Fix My Life” and “Life with La Toya,” contributed to OWN Networks successful Saturday night ratings.

In addition to readying season two of “Raising Whitley,” the Shaker Heights, Ohio-bred talent is also featured on the OWN Network summer special, “Wanda Sykes Presents Herlarious.”

    I absolutely love this show! And I must admit that Kym has some excellent friends that stepped up to the plate when she needed them the most. It’s great to finally have a positive reality show on TV!
