Not long after I published the post on the way Reality TV affects girls, I ran across another article on a new show that I had to read several times to believe.
The Oxygen Channel (which was founded by none other than Oprah Winfrey) has created a show called All My Babies‘ Mamas, about Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo. It features Lo, the TEN women he has kids with, and the ELEVEN children he has with these women.
No, I’m not kidding.
This is really a new low in so many ways. For TV, for American entertainment, relationships, but especially women and black people. They are the biggest losers in the development and creation of a show like this.
And if Oprah has anything to do with it (which wouldn’t shock me at all, since I have always felt that all of her shows and activities had the sole objective of making her rich) she can go to hell.
Yes. Oprah, if you, as a founder of the Oxygen Channel, allowed a show like this to be aired on this network, you can go to hell. And kiss my ass on the way down.
A petition on Change.org has already gathered thousands of signatures in an effort to stop production of the show ( I suggest that you all sign it!) Although the channel’s leadership is fully aware of the outcry the show has caused, they intend to move forward with creating the show.
I will never watch the Oxygen Channel again.
