Real Babymamas of Richmond bringing Babydaddys to screen


The team behind the public access show, The Real Babymamas of Richmond, are preparing for the launch of a new show, The Real Babydaddys of Richmond.

The original show launched last month, with some controversy. Still, the creators aren't shying away from another season and the new spin-off.

Show creator Aretha Lewis, known on the show as "Pumpkin" or "Big Sexy," says the title drew criticism, but the show is meant to explore the challenges of being a single mom in the city. The first season spotlighted eight women, each with between two and nine children.

The trailer to the first season was watched more than 130,000 times on YouTube. The first episode saw nearly 40,000 views, though later episodes weren't watched nearly as much.

She says the show isn't meant to encourage single-parenting, but wants to let people know that children can be raised without a father.

The show airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on Richmond's public access channel, which is Comcast channel 95 and Verizon channel 36. It also is available on the show's YouTube channel.
