The Governor’s Wife and All My Babies’ Mamas

Let’s add the television shows Governor’s Wife and All My Babies’ Mamas to the do-not- watch list. The first stars 85-year-old Edwin Edwards and his 34-year-old wife, Trina Grimes Scott, now Trina Edwards. And the latter features Carlos “Shawty Lo” Walker, a hip-hop rapper with 11 children by 10 different women. Classy dudes, both:

The Governor’s Wife will star 85-year-old Edwin Edwards and his 34-year-old wife, Trina, along with several of their children from previous marriages. Edwards served four times as Louisiana’s governor over the course of three decades, and also served eight years in federal prison for crimes committed while he was in office. In 2001, Edwards was convicted on bribery and extortion charges. He became pen pals with Trina during his prison stint and they married after his release last year.

The show will focus on Edwin and Trina’s May-December relationship and follow Edwin’s daughters (Anna, a 62-year-old, four-time divorcée and Victoria, a 60-year-old ex-showgirl) along Trina’s sons (Logan, 15 and Trevor, 13).

And Mr. Classy Father Number Two is an Atlanta based rapper. And two of his ex-wives are known as Jealous Baby Mama and Shady Baby Mama:

“All My Babies’ Mamas,” a one-hour reality special slated to air in the spring of 2013, features Carlos “Shawty Lo” Walker, an Atlanta-based hip-hop artist with 11 children by 10 different women. Oh, he’s also got a 19-year-old girlfriend, who’s a year shy of his oldest child.

By the looks of the leaked sneak peak and an early press release, the show’s take on this challenging family dynamic is more “Brady Bunch” than “An American Family.”

“As the household grows, sometimes so does the dysfunction, leaving the man of the house to split his affection multiple ways while trying to create order,” reads the goofy-sitcom-style description, in a press release posted the Oxygen’s website late December. “Will there be a conflict over a family holiday, who needs school supplies and who holds the household finance purse strings, or can these feisty babies’ mamas band together and live peacefully as one family unit?”

Who watches this stuff?

  1. Having checked my ‘media’ diary I must confess that I completely missed both of these dysfunctional pearls…

    Unfortunately I will be attending a lecture on the ‘Nocturnal lesser-spotted flying-gnat’ when the program airs. There after I will be updating my cornflake collection… When I run out of excuses you may find me in my library, drinking a glass of vintage port whilst cleaning my revolver!

    YoursAye.
