LOS ANGELES, CA (APRIL 2013)  Actor and former talk radio show host Wendell James, will co-star along side of good friend and Emmy-nominated actress/comedienne Kym Whitley in a humorous poignant docu-series following the life of  the celebrity, and her chaotic group of friends called “the Village” as they attempt to do something they’d never done before: raise a baby!

Known throughout their circle of Hollywood friends  as “Hollywood play husband and wife,” naturally it was no shock when Wendell was asked to be just that on “Raising Whitley.” James is a very standout and opinionated member of the Village. His no-nonsense attitude and nontraditional child raising ideas bring laughter, excitement and drama to the show. Little Joshua Whitley is in for a colorful upbringing.


About Wendell James

Wendell James celebrity meter began to rise  in 2004, as he launched his new shirt line “Wendell’s Designs. The star-studded event was hosted by actress/comedienne Kym Whitley.  Shortly thereafter, Wendell produced and hosted the “Talking with Wendell” show where he took his wild and zany personality to the red carpet and behind the scenes interviewing celebrities.  From Gayle King to Dan Rather, everybody made their way over and took up conversation with Wendell.


“Raising Whitley” is scheduled to air Saturday, April 20, 2013 at 10/9C on the OWN Network.543911_10151590528601103_1037956481_n

  1. Hello Dr. James,

    I am writing to you because I was hoping to meet with you and have you share you experiences with our wonderful organization. I have been working with a wonderful organization called Special Vacations. We are based out of Philadelphia and we take individuals with developmental and physical disabilities on vacations around the world. After watching you on Raising Whitley I was immediately drawn to you and your personality and was excited to know that you too have a background in this area. Our group will be in California on February 22-26 and I would love to meet you and for you to meet our group and to share stories and ideas on how we can continue to service adults with special needs in a more meaningful and purposeful manner. I pray that we would be able to meet or somehow communicate as I believe this to be a great opportunity for the both of us. I thank you in advance for all of your work and hope to hear from you in the near future.
