Hollywood Personality Wendell James co-stars in OWN docu-series, "Raising Whitley"
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.
