Raising Whitley Airs on OWN Network

One of our favorite actresses and comediennes is back with all-new episodes of her hit docu-series, “Raising Whitley.” A breath of fresh air in the word of reality TV, “Raising Whitley” follows the ups and downs that Kym Whitley faces after adopting sweet Joshua and figuring out how to manage motherhood with her busy life.

In this new season of “Raising Whitley,” Joshua is now 2 and a half and Kym is navigating experiences like swimming lessons and potty training.   You also get a close look at Kym’s quest to raise allergy awareness.  After an allergy scare with Joshua that reveled an allergy to peanuts, Kym was inspired to create her “Don’t Feed Me” allergy awareness t-shirts and care packs.

Last April we had a chance to talk to Kym Whitley about “Raising Whitley” and what she shared really made us want to tune in for the series premiere.  With over 1.2 million viewers watching the series premiere of “Raising Whitley” in April 2013, viewers everywhere can’t wait to tune in this Saturday, January 4, 2014 at 9:00pm ET/PT to watch as her journey with Joshua continues to unfold.

I know I will be tuning in to watch this working mom figure things out with the support of her “village.”  Will you be watching?

From Ebony:

CHICAGO (January 7, 2014) — To usher in Valentine’s Day, EBONY magazine is showcasing the love among three African-American power couples in its February 2014 issue.  Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey, Carmelo and La La Anthony and David and Tamela Mann will each have their own cover,and inside the magazine, readers can learn about the spouses’ love stories, how they knew they had found “the one,” and what they do keep the fires burning.

This is the first time each of the celebrity power couples will grace a magazine cover with his or her spouse and offer exclusive insight into their relationship. The photo layouts show Nick and Mariah up-close and sexy as never seen before, and the same can be said about Carmelo and La La as they reveal their intimate and sensual sides.  David and Tamela give readers a peek at how sweet and playful they are with each another.

When asked what ignites their love and how they maintain the passion in their relationships, the following responses were given:

“It was early on when I found out how spiritual she was, and we had conversations about kids and how to live life.  For her to share these values, it instantly let me know this is the person I’ve always wanted.” –Nick Cannon

“Having babies definitely strengthened our bond because all the love that you have for each other is manifested into these two incredible beings.”  –Mariah Carey

“There were people coming in and out of my life, and I didn’t really know whom to trust.  She was one of the people who stood by my side through thick and thick.  Even to this day, she’s always right there.” –Carmelo Anthony

“…We knew no matter what, we wanted each other.  We needed [to be] in each other’s life, and that’s what’s been able to sustain this relationship all those years.” –La La Anthony

“Stay in love because when you’re in love, it covers a multitude of fault.  Our relationship wasn’t based on good sex or having a lot of money.  It was based on just straight friendship.  That’s what has kept us.” –David Mann

“I pray and ask God to keep my heart and my eyes burning only for David Mann.  I speak his name in my prayers, because I want the desire to stay, so when he touches me, I get chills.” –Tamela Mann

The issue also features a special editorial tribute to Nelson Mandela.  Inside, readers will find:

  • Reflections on the life of Mandela
  • Exclusive photos from the EBONY archives
  • Stories of Mandela’s experience in prison
  • An account of the anti-apartheid protests in America
  • Articles on Mandela as a revolutionary, a hero and a legend by notable figures such as Michael Eric Dyson and the Rev. Jesse Jackson

The issue will be available on newsstands beginning January 7.
