Just when you thought it couldn't get any more ghetto...
Shawty Lo, the Atlanta-based rapper has found a way to monetize his ability to reproduce like a rabbit in heat with his new show, "All My Babies Mamas".
Premiering on Oxygen (once thought of as a respectable channel), Shawty Lo (the self-described "Black Hugh Hefner") features a reality show highlighting the shenanigans of Lo, his 10 baby mommas and 12 kids. The youngest baby mama is 19, which is the same age as his oldest child. To keep the show interesting he has nicknamed each of his baby mamas similar to the ladies of Flavor of Love:
E’creia “The First Lady”: The one who controls his money. The former fiancee who cheated on Shawty with another man.
Angela aka “Chocolate” the “Fighter Baby Mama”
Amanda “The Jealous Baby Mama”
Sujuan “Wanna Be-Bougie” Baby Mama
Tamara “No Drama Baby Mama”
Serena “The Shady Baby Mama”
Leiana aka Pebbles “The Baby Mama From Hell”
The masterming of the absurd - Shawty Lo
It may sound like I'm doing a lot of hatin' on poor little Shawty (and I am), but actually I have to give him some credit. He knows that there are enough ghetto drama lovers and curious subarbanites who will tune in to see this train wreck of family values, which will probably put some money in Shawty's pocket to pay for child supprt, bail money and any other foolishness the mamas can get into.
