It Takes a Village with “Raising Whitley” @OWNTV Saturdays at 9 PM *ET/PT on OWN #RaisingWhitley

Have you watched the docu-series “Raising Whitley” on OWN? It follows actress and comedienne Kym Whitley and her riotous collective of friends – whom she calls “The Village” – as they attempt to do something none of them have ever done before: raise a baby…together.

Tune-in this Saturday at 9:00 PM *ET/PT for an all-new episode of “Raising Whitley” on OWN.

On this week’s episode of “Raising Whitley,” see Kym as she prepares to audition for a role as a pregnant woman from the south. Then, watch as co-parents Kym and Rodney go on a dinner date and question their compatibility as a couple. Is there a possibility for Joshua’s mom and dad to become more than just friends? Watch as these two discuss their relationship on a more romantic level.

Sneak Peek: Can Rodney and Kym Be a Real Family?

Rodney visits Kym to put Joshua to bed when he starts acting suspiciously sweet and affectionate towards Kym. Could it be… is Rodney flirting with Kym? If he is, will Rodney manage to charm his way into Kym’s life for good, and stop taking up her “man space”?

Find out on an all-new episode of Raising Whitley, Saturday at 9/8c!

More about Raising Whitley

Over the season, Kym learns the chaotic realities of becoming a full-time mom: She realizes that, while Craigslist may be perfect for finding an old couch, it’s not ideal for finding a new nanny; she survives Joshua’s first haircut; she gets her groove back on a manhunt with her girlfriends; and she discovers that being “just friends” with Joshua’s “daddy” may not be that simple.
