Shawty Lo, 10 Baby Mamas and 1 Massive Fail

I didn’t know who or what a Shawty Lo was until end of last week, when folks hit up my Facebook fan page and said he deserved some words. I googled it and find out that he is some dude with 10 baby mamas, 11 kids and an upcoming reality TV show on Oxygen. In fact, the show will be called “All My Babies Mamas.” They all live in one house and this show will be about their drama.

ShawtyLoBabyMamas

Things like this is why we cannot have nice things. This is why we are losing as a people and species and I just want to hit my *wall slide*. We’re regressing. iSweaterGAWD we are.

What’s wrong with this? Well EVERYTHING. I can’t find one thing right with it. I have many questions and no answers. So I am just sitting here facepalming and shaking my head, wondering where we went wrong. But I’ma ask these questions anyway.

1. Why is this grown ass man named Shawty Lo? Your mama named you Carlos and you grew up to answer to SHAWTY LO. Talk about knowing you weren’t gonna be about much.

b. How did this dude, who is 5’nothing get 10 women to procreate with him? He got 10 women to agree for him to inseminate them. This is what happens when girls live lives of lowered expectations.

iii. Does Team Bad Decisions replicate like Gremlins? It feels like that’s the case because there is surely no shortage of people who are walking around making piss poor decisions.

4a. Why does America keep awarding people for their lack of condom use? As if Teen Moms wasn’t bad enough. Now we’re getting a dude who must not know about the existence of condoms, has a lethal allergy that means he will literally die if he puts one on, or is so stupid and reckless that he can’t be bothered to use one. I believe option number 3 is most likely. What does he get for his idiocy? A TV show about his dysfunctional life. I’m unable to even deal with this foolery. And we’re to blame as we keep rewarding this behavior.

V. Also, how many STDs has this man had or currently has? Statistically speaking, he is highly likely to have one or more. Clearly, he isn’t a fan of condom use. I wonder if he has a whole new ecosystem growing in his nether regions. Dude is a walking virus, I bet. Weapons of mass diseases. He is a menace to public health and I am not here for any of it.

This whole thing is ridiculous. 10 baby mamas, 11 kids and 1 idiot behind it all. Well, no. These women can’t be charged with having too much common sense either since they’re the 2nd parties to his sperm shooting parties.

And according to NewsOne:

Each baby mama has an eye-catching title such as the ‘First Lady E’Creia,’ who handles Lo’s finances and who was actually engaged to him at one point after he already had three children. Then there’s Angela, the “Fighter Baby Mama,” Amanda, the “Jealous Baby Mama,” Sujuan, the “Wanna-be Bougie Baby Mama” and Tamara, the “No-Drama Baby Mama.”

This is some type of Zane novel gone bad. I promise. Or it’s like some old racist white man’s exact idea of what ALL Black people are like. I feel like I should be apologizing to someone for this.  Talmbout “So sorry. We’re not all like this.” This is me:

shame

Just ashamed.

Each woman has a damb nickname. Like “Baby Mama” is some sort of band they’re in. Here’s Spicy Baby Mama, Sporty Baby Mama… NAWL. This is terrible. Baby mama is the name of a movie and a fantasia song. Nothing more. Stawp it. These are the mothers of your kids.

A man saying “that’s my baby mama” is basically just saying “oh that’s the heffa who let me freak without a condom and my sperm had a good day.” Well, Shawty Lo’s had at least 11 good days. And 10 fools who were accepting of it.

All of this is just irresponsible as hell. And we’ll get to see this on TV. Well, not WE. This is one show I’ll be skipping out on. I draw a ratchet line, y’all! I REALLY do. iCan’t even deal with this. I’ll spend each hour cursing while watching it. So nay. Y’all best not ask for recaps of this show from me. NAWL.

Anywho, will you be watching? What are your thoughts on this foolishment.

Edit: For those talmbout he shouldn’t be roasted because he is actually taking care of his kids. Well, I don’t think he deserves a pat on the back for doing what he’s SUPPOSED to be doing. Treating men like toddlers. “YAY SHAWTY! YOU’S A GOOD MAN FOR BEING THERE FOR YOUR KIDS!” No. NAWL. Try again. And stop living a life of lowered expectations. (-_-)

Also, Chris Rock already talked about this.

    Pure-dee foolishness. I am also ashamed. ( ._.)

  • Courtney January 3, 2013, 7:25 am

    I will not watch that show!!! This is terrible!!!! This is a whole new low. And baby mama is not a badge of honor. I wish some of us women stop being so proud of being called that. Baby Daddy is also not a badge of honor. Uggghh and I hate that song ‘That Just My Baby Daddy’.

  • Milaxx January 3, 2013, 7:36 am

    So was one of these women dumb enough to go back for seconds or is there a set of twins in the mix? I’d like to say this is no worse than that horrible Sister wives show, but at least he calls them by their names and not some horrible variation of baby mama.

    This show and the fact that this man and his brood exist make my heart hurt.

    • Stephanie January 3, 2013, 9:24 am

      A woman was dumb enough to go back for seconds. Her name is Pebbles, and she is labeled as the “Drama Baby Mama”

      • milaxx January 3, 2013, 7:08 pm

        iCan’t

        lemme pray for these folks

    • Jaz January 3, 2013, 8:58 pm

      Nope she went back for seconds and a few of his baby mamas have some sense because there are only like seven on the show and all of his children arent shown.

  • Margaret January 3, 2013, 7:53 am

    Soon as I heard the title I said “hell nawl! This can’t be real”

    I couldn’t get to that petition fast enough smh

    • Jaz January 3, 2013, 9:00 pm

      Me too

  • RozB January 3, 2013, 7:59 am

    This show makes me wanna go to the headquarters of TLC and commence to kicking folks in the shin while wearing steel-toe boots.

    This is not a joke like I first thought – it is an actual show that the brain trust at “The Learning Channel” thought would be a stellar addition to their lineup of horrible dysfunction like Hoarding: Buried Alive, Toddlers ‘n Tiaras, and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. What are we learning here? ‘Cuz I am not seeing it, TLC!

    Crap like this makes BET look like Masterpiece Theater… (o_q*} *Indian Tear*

    • Stephanie January 3, 2013, 9:26 am

      Actually, it is on Oxygen, not TLC. I thought it was on VH1 at first, because this has them written all over it, but Oxygen is trying to get into the Rachet Olympics in grand trifling fashion.

      • RozB January 3, 2013, 3:44 pm

        Thanks for the correction – just shows how vested I am in this kind of hot garbage.

        It does sound like VH1 would be chomping at the bit on this one, though…

    • Ncborndclive January 4, 2013, 10:01 am

      Your post is too funny. I don’t think it is on TLC, but that channel is showing ratchetness everyday too. lls.

  • TeeNikki January 3, 2013, 8:00 am

    Ok, I’m lost…..do they NORMALLY live in the same house or is this a bootleg Real World experiment? Those poor children…..my condoughlensis to their social life.

    • latebut January 3, 2013, 9:22 am

      DEAD @condouglensis – the 2012 dumbest tweets reference has me gasping for air!

    • MissMe January 3, 2013, 11:27 am

      I don’t think they actually all live in the same house, at least that wasn’t the impression I got from the trailer. I think they just tend to congregate there.

  • ms. kay January 3, 2013, 8:08 am

    You forgot the 19 year old girlfriend who is the same age as the oldest kid. Smdh.

    • MissMe January 3, 2013, 11:29 am

      Younger! His oldest is 20! And if you watch the trailer all of the “baby mamas” say they were 17/18/19 when they met him. Shawty Lo seems to have a thing for little girls…

    • MissMe January 3, 2013, 11:30 am

      Younger! His oldest is 20… this fool has a 20yr old, two 19yr olds, and an 18yr old… and if you watched the trailer all of the “baby mamas” said they met him when they were 17/18/19yrs old. Seems like Shawty Lo has a thing for little girls…

      • Akosua January 4, 2013, 1:48 am

        Sounds like they all need Dr. Drew or Dr. Phil in there. Im curious to see the cause of his attraction to young women

  • Akosua January 3, 2013, 8:10 am

    I also read somewhere he has a new girlfriend who is 19 yrs old. Yep. 19. Supposedly she will be on the show too…they all must’ve had some kind of f*cked up upbringing cuz this right here..I cant.

  • Aisha January 3, 2013, 8:41 am

    Baby mama/daddy is a disgusting label. I lost some respect for Musiq because he referred to Kameelah from 702 as his “baby mama”. Sir, you’ve been having a relationship with this woman for three years. No what he said was not a Philly thing, he clearly needs to have some respect.

    Anyways, I don’t care if other cultures are on tv acting a fool, I will not be watching and I hope that someone could forward me the petition info. I seriously feel bad for the children. How are all this folks eating, who is Shawty Lo? How does he support all those mouths?

    • ab January 3, 2013, 3:30 pm

      shut up. Just shut up.
      How do you take care of 10 women and 11 chirren? yes chirren?. How much attention can you give them?. How do you raise them and imbue your family history and values into them?.

      If this looks so good to you, hike up your panties and go join them. you simpleton.

      p.s. shut up. with that childish ‘every time you point a finger BS’, go tell it to your gospel/street philosopher rela-tyreese-ship experts.

      and whilst you are it, just hand back your black card. We don’t want you and your type anymore.

        • ab January 7, 2013, 2:47 am

          what are you? 2 years old?. ‘stank attitude’.
          You and your fellow simpletons are ridiculous and simple enough to wave your dysfunction as a positive flag. GTFOH.
          Have some shame.

          Go sit down somewhere, grown folk are talking.

        • b. January 8, 2013, 3:49 pm

          ha! indeed. so, if you point out something that’s ignorant and blatantly destructive to the view the entire world has on OUR collective race, it’s being judgmental?

          no, dear “simpletons”, i agree with miss “stank” attitude.(who uses…stank, though?)

      ummm, how many fingers do you have? cause…

      • KelC January 3, 2013, 8:45 pm

        HAHAHAHA, exactly FoxyB! Kea, hold up your hand. Now point your index finger. Your middle, ring, and pinkie point back at you. Your thumb, (which is not a finger) is pointing forward. So the answer that escaped you is 3 fingers pointing back at you, not 4.

        • Taj Mahal January 4, 2013, 5:45 pm

          I cracked up when I read your (KelC) finger-pointing explanation. I had to try it myself (I’m a visual learner), and I laughed even harder.

  • sadiqua January 3, 2013, 9:35 am

    If you watch the previews *guilty throat clear* all ten uh, donated uteruses arent participating from what I can tell. There’s at least three missing I think. Statistically, one should be in jail (Felonius Baby Mama), the other probably has sense and declined to participate (Dental Assistant Baby Mama), and the third one was running late from her shift at CitiTrends with Keri Hilson (Fresh2Def Baby Mama). Their kids arent in the photo either.

    Im pretty sure the other women gave zero fukcs about the other three women, because that was more money in their pockets from Oxygen. I just need him to find the Trojan Man and they become besties. Makidada hand clapping and matching friendship bracelet besties.

  • Christina January 3, 2013, 9:44 am

    Luvvie THANK YOU for deciding not to support this foolishness by watching and posting about it. I agree that it is trifling and ratchet, but as a society we are responsible for this foolishness and need to take steps to end the coonery and media exploitation of our people. When we watch (and FB/tweet/blog/comment on) foolishness like Bad Girls Club, Basketball Wives, and Love & Hip Hop, networks see that we are accepting the stereotypes that they are feeding us and realize that they can make a boatload of money by perpetuating those stereotypes and pushing them any further. I am so glad that so far everyone thinks this new show doesn’t deserve the time of day, I just hope that everyone sticks to their guns and refuses to feed into this mess even when all the more ratchet among us are raving about how crazy the new show is. We must do better. Peace

  • Sarah January 3, 2013, 9:49 am

    I’m ashamed right with you, Luv. This is also news to me. I didn’t know who or what this man was either. Just wanted to submit a slight correction, the movie you referred to is Idiocracy. And it’s recommended to know what we should be avoiding en masse. Thank you. That is all. Carry on (use a condom). Happy New Year

  • Chairman Mo January 3, 2013, 10:23 am

    Thankfully this foolishness is nowhere near our TVs in the Uk….Yet.

    Reading about mr shawt on brains and his harem of hood rats put me in mind of Tanya Stephens’ ‘ What a Day’ lyrics… “Tired of baby mamma, tired of baby daddy, chillin’ in the spot where the parents should be”.

    This kind of f*ckery hurts my damn heart….smh

    • It's me January 3, 2013, 12:14 pm

    the movie was “Idiocracy,” and yes, this is the epitome of that word. what a shame that we as a society support this nonsense, and basketball wives ain’t a far cry from this same tom foolery. we oughta be takin these folks aside and holdin them accountable, not praising this behavior.

  • When You Know Better, You Do Better... January 3, 2013, 11:25 am

    This makes me want to weep. I despise that term, baby mama. Just ratchet. My son was about 10 and asked me what was a baby mama. I told him it was something he would NEVER be. It was a raggedy assed way of saying you impregnated a random woman about whom you could give no d@mn nor any respect.

    I heard a mainstream journalist news anchor use that term in regards to Kanye and Kim. As the old folks used to say: trifling. Just trifling.

    • Me again January 3, 2013, 12:17 pm

      I meant baby mama I something he would never have. Then he asked about baby daddy and it is something he will never be. That coonery is completely unacceptable to me.

  • tobystic January 3, 2013, 11:31 am

    I really dont get why Luvvie can go on and on bout this issue. First she point out in the first paragraph about such being synonymous with black. Common, how many partners has Hugh Hefner got in a small lifetime? I am not encouraging this show but saying philandering is a black thing? Chill.
    Also you went on and on about STD. That’s just a probability,its nothing to build conclusion and inferences plus extra 2 paragraphs on as it stands. Do you even know how many porn stars that play like really safe? (even though that sounds funny)
    Well, there must be things like this to make the fun in the world go around.
    Keep doing what you do Luvvie 🙂

    • Luvvie January 3, 2013, 11:35 am

      What did I say was synonymous with being Black? You surely didn’t read right. And porn stars and Shawty Lo??? You just reached so hard I should call you Stretch. But whatevs.

      • tobystic January 3, 2013, 11:41 am

        See why you need to chill? lol! way too extreme. You can check the second paragraph for your question.

        By the way, its a show, different things are being added to garnish these things and you know better.

        • Can'tTakeIt January 3, 2013, 3:38 pm

          I like how you’re trying to throw shade on the owner of the website when you’re the one taking two random points in the article in the opposite direction than they were meant, creating a brand new story….and then tried to school her like an elementary student.

          Chile, please. Take that nonsense elsewhere.

  • MissMe January 3, 2013, 11:34 am

    The part that disturbs me more than the fact that he has 10 baby mamas is during the trailer you see that his new girl is 19… he has one child older than her, two the same age, and one who is about a year younger… and all of the baby mamas said they met him when they were between the ages of 17-19. I pray this girl doesn’t become baby mama #11 but from all her ignant comments I am sure she will be, then he will move on to the next adolescent… crazy

  • nichole January 3, 2013, 12:53 pm

    Every time I read some foolishness like this about my people, I feel I have to work so much harder to kick down the growing view of African Americans and try to be an example of hope. It’s hard work.

    I’ve always found it difficult to talk to a guy who didn’t marry the mother of his child. When you learn he has two women he didn’t marry but has children with, it was my time to run, as fast as I could, in heels. These girls didn’t run. Why?

    And it’s being celebrated on TV, now more than ever? I’m sorry Oxygen. I can’t remember if I ever watched the channel before but because of this mess, I wouldn’t watch you if Scandal was on your channel. (Thank goodness for online)

    This makes me think of that fool in Tennessee who has 30 kids with 11 women. Carlos had one woman go back for seconds (?), this guy had…I’m sorry I’m tired of counting.

  • The joy January 3, 2013, 1:42 pm

    So a few years ago when he was engaged to that stripper, shanty lo would frequent my husband’s job. His brother worked there as well. So I’m sitting at the bar and here comes a man with a Beijing beard lineup, shorter than me when I’m seated, spending $200 on a togo order. Then here comes my brother in law out the kitchen doing that damn running in place dance shanty lo does (which looks like Tracy Morgan doin the Christmas song on snl). I’m sure I laughed right in his face.

    I saw him again after he got that 8mil from 50. This time at Walmart. Almost asked him to buy us a tv. It looked like he was just taking ppl on a spree. I now know that was his family. Lol

  • HowlingBanshee January 3, 2013, 2:39 pm

    I remember reading about this guy; looks like this disgraceful shucking and jiving is the only way these kids are going to be taken care of. Seems this guy was always in between minimum wage jobs. Like, even he did pay child support, divided up among all those kids it would barely cover the cost of postage and a Happy Meal. I hope they get some really tough love life coaches on that show to help all of them get together. But you know TV execs don’t give 3/4 of a damb about helping these people. Just too happy to exploit this phuquery as a prime example of “TNB.” (typical … behavior)

    • HowlingBanshee January 3, 2013, 2:40 pm

  • Mrs. Hamilton January 3, 2013, 5:00 pm

    Ahem… so what I’m about to say might be unpopular but… since when is a black man taking care of all his kids and their mothers a bad thing? Nobody’s perfect — and I can understand how the presentation might irritate all of ya’ll. It even irritated me. But there are plenty of men who married their baby mama’s and won’t work to feed their wives or their kids. There are men who cheat on their women and have a thousand ghetto twins running around and won’t claim none of their babies. There are men who wanna be rappers but don’t have the hustle and grind to make their dreams fly. But Shawty Lo (and I’m mad ya’ll went in hard enough to make me defend somebody named Shawty Lo) worked hard, found a way to parlay his talents into millions of dollars, and takes care of everybody he made and the women who helped him do it. And the women (gasp!) get along. So… why is that so messed up? I’m just saying… stop hatin…

    • Veronica January 3, 2013, 5:15 pm

    • Can'tTakeIt January 4, 2013, 3:07 am

      1) Pardon me, but where did you get these millions of dollars that he allegedly has? And if he was doing the right thing and taking care of his children the entire time, believe me when I tell you that the station that brought us Bad Girls’ Club wouldn’t have been interested.

      2) I’m not going to sit here and congratulate a man who was irresponsible enough to have babies with not just two or three women, but TEN. How in any way shape or form does that make him a decent man? That is ratchet azz ridiculousness at its finest.

    I can agree with what everyone one is saying here. Luvvie, I am not here to throw shade at neither you or your loyal readers, however, as a Black person…I can honestly say I have no issue with this show. Sure, it can come across as grossly misrepresenting and demeaning but let’s face it, how many Black fathers are willing to house ALL their baby mother’s and their children?? I’m guessing he did this to evade the eminent child support but that’s neither here or there. Still, I agree that these women and Carlos have indeed made some poor choices in regards to familial structuring, however I can’t hate on how they made it work. It’s like flourishing of dysfunctionaliy…if that makes sense. #Enneweighs, I enjoy ratchet television, and this is something I will definitely be watching. Peace, Love and Ratchet. 🙂

    • Veronica January 3, 2013, 6:58 pm

      But can we stop equating Black men with “multiple baby mamas”? Like really? To answer the question, “how many Black fathers are willing to house ALL their baby mother’s and their children??”… None that I know, because MOST of the black men I know have children with one woman, their wife or longtime partner. We gotta get out of this assumption that Black folks are across-the-board dysfunctional, and deciding to celebrate the most entertaining of the dysfunction. Like, for serious. UGH.

    • Luvvie January 3, 2013, 7:09 pm

      Shawty Lo doesn’t get a pat on the back for supporting his kids. HE IS SUPPOSED TO! I’m not giving him a gold star for not wearing condoms! This is that shit that is crippling us. Treating men like toddlers. “YAY SHAWTY! YOU’S A GOOD MAN FOR BEING THERE FOR YOU KIDS!” No. NAWL.

      Nawl. I can’t e’em deal. He’s hella irresponsible and just cuz he’s paying for these kids’ basic needs doesn’t make him a superhero. It makes him a dumbass who hates condoms.

      • Mrs. Hamilton January 3, 2013, 8:57 pm

        What did he do that was so irresponsible? And why should he wear condoms if he wants kids and wants to take care of them? And how is he that much different from our polygamous African ancestors? And how does calling our men diseased or our women dumb or their kids bastards edify our race or point to a better solution? Maybe everybody making these comments are perfect parents? Or have the perfect family situation? Or maybe ya’ll live in shatter-proof houses? Cuz ya’ll are sure throwing a lot of stones…

        • Taj Mahal January 4, 2013, 10:57 am

          Yes, I’m going to continue throwing stones, because these people are clearly never going to learn from their mistakes, and I think with a pretty good awareness of current affairs in the Black community and its history in this country, I’m more than able to comment, especially if I have to live in a society with idiots like this. Further more, I KNOW I’m definitely doing waaaaaay better as far as common sense and everything else these here clowns are lacking right now. I have no children BY CHOICE until I know that I can provide for their every single want and need from the top of Maslows Hierarchy pyraid to the grass at the damn bottom.

          What was irresponsible?!
          10 women
          11 children
          No marriage
          No way to support them outside of a shaky music career and whoring this family dysfunction out for the world to say.
          Don’t forget the fact that NO MAN can give that much attention to all of these children. If he’s busy making money, more than likely, he will be traveling a lot for appearances. Performers rarely see the few children they have because of their schedules, but this nitwit has 11 of them! There is NO WAY they are getting individualized daddy time. NO WAY!

          “Why should he wear condoms…” I’ll stop there and say AIDS IS REAL! Look at the age gaps between all of his kids, they aren’t that far, which means this man was in a number of sexual relationships at once. Nothing wrong with that, huh? Well, considering that these dysfunctional birds he impregnated were probably not monogamous either and weren’t’ fans of condoms else they wouldn’t be in this foolhardy position.

          This is America, where the average Black American has no clue about African customs and traditions. Don’t insult those people who do practice it in a practical manner, for whom it is their CULTURE! This isn’t something that he did to honor his roots, he was being a SLUT! And he now has 11 kids to show for it.

          Honestly, by being an example, I try to teach others, but if people like YOU keep questioning our rationale and rooting for these idiots, then YOU are the problem, not we who are pointing out the problem.
          Sounds like maybe you are a “baby mama” trying to maintain a positive PR campaign for your kind’s public image. Yes, no, maybe so?

        • Tamika January 4, 2013, 1:48 pm

          You ma’am appear to be so smart, that you actually sound DUMB…

          FIRST, it is clear as Trojan Bare Skin Condoms what makes this child irresponsible.

          B. We do not live ancestral Africa or ancestral anything it 2013…The Earf has been plenty populated.

          3. Since no one with any sense would defend this….I Can’t help but to assume that you’re either his mother…or one of the baby mamas….and since they all have names you must be Ms Hamilton the “Workin on my GED Baby-Mama”.

          D. We don’t all have perfect homes nor are we all perfect parents, we just recognize foolery when we see it.

        • ab January 6, 2013, 8:52 am

          even Africans (i am one) dont live in ancestral africa. This simpleton is being wilfully obtuse. Leave her to it

    • Bill January 4, 2013, 2:03 pm

      Dear DymaDummy,

      I can see your house now, yelling at your kids for doing homework and forcing them to practice rap lyrics, turning off all educational shows and the news…..and put that oatmeal down……we eating Ice cream for breakfast!!! The sad thing is, none of that is worse than that mess you just wrote.

      People with POVs like yours are about as useful as a box of condoms in Shawty Lo’s house. Hopefully there aren’t many black men who have 10 baby mamas to move into his section 8 house….and pause why are you even admiring that? Black folk always celebrating stupidity and frowning on those trying to achieve, lol you probably told the smart kids in school they were acting white for doing their work, lol.

      In the future…if you think about posting something else, just know the rest of humanity will probably think its stupid.

      P.S.
      Its not against the rules to get educated in something besides ratchedness…

  • kanb January 3, 2013, 7:09 pm

    My ex walked just like that guy in the GIF…usually only if he was sad tho.

  • Milaxx January 3, 2013, 7:19 pm

    Why does he get a pass for taking care of his own damn children! The cat down the street did that with her last litter & she has (I hope) a lower functioning brain that Shawnty.

    Forget the condoms, get homeboy to the doctors and have it snipped. He has sired enough.

  • Myssdee January 3, 2013, 7:26 pm

    Shawty Lo is making it real hard for black people who have to find some sort of explanation to their dingy white co-workers why this show even exist.

  • Kat January 3, 2013, 7:41 pm
  • LadyLarke January 3, 2013, 7:50 pm

    This Shawty Lo disasterpiece together with Basketball Wives, Bad Girls Club, that show about the Houstons (-_-), and about 7/8 of the shows on BET is why we can’t have nice things. I am signing this petition because 20 years from now, when my kids are watching TV Land, I don’t want them coming across this abortion of a tv show. Can we get The Cosby Show back? PLEASE?!

  • Simone M January 3, 2013, 7:52 pm

    This is beyond pathetic. What’s the lesson? Do something irresponsible, populate the world with bastard children and then give all the losers a TV show. I guess it’ll be popular with other losers.

    Veronica – “Welcome to the land of lowered expectations”? I think maybe better is “Welcome to the land of the lowest expectations”.

  • KemaB January 3, 2013, 8:12 pm

    I REFUSE to watch this nonsense I will have none of this fuckery!!!! Our ppl didnt go through hundreds of years of struggle for this sometimes the money ain’t always worth it. We need to do better really.

  • Ms. CJ January 4, 2013, 6:55 am

    I completely understand your concern for the African American culture, shit even just the American culture, and I to believe this is not a good look but it is no different then the Sister Wives that’s on TLC. Yes the husbands name isn’t a nickname but he is living with four woman and have children with them all. I can say the positive about this situation, shorty lo is taking care of his children and with this show can do better by them. If you can’t beat them join them. Shit happens in life we (and I mean all) don’t always make the right decision but we have to live with them and he’s doing just that. And hey for the woman to live under the same roof they are doing better than many of the single family homes and co-parenting homes. Give credit where credits due and live and let live.

    Peace!

    • Bill January 4, 2013, 2:12 pm

      Girl Bye… They getting paid to live together for this show. Stop applauding ppl for doing the bare minimum… You proly get happy when yo kids bring home D’s, talm bout “Least he passed”

      You and that Hamiton chick can shet-up and siddown!!! In that order.

  • Mrs. Hamilton January 4, 2013, 7:59 am

    Thank you, sis!

  • Silk! January 4, 2013, 11:31 am

    When I discovered that Shawty Lo’s claim to fame was “Laffy Taffy”, I was more than through.

  • janelfelice January 4, 2013, 12:27 pm

    I thought this was a joke. Seriously. I thought it was a skit like “The Real Househusbands of Atlanta”. Yes, we know that some people act reckless with their peens and va-jay-jays, but why are we glorifying this on television?

  • DymaDee January 4, 2013, 5:15 pm

    Hey Bill,

    I don’t know what’s gotten you so irate, but I will stoop to your level and respond. Without any unnecessary name calling.

    Perhaps it’s my demographic, a single, childless, 20something year old that makes me want to tune into this show. I am not applauding Shawty Lo’s actions, in fact, I don’t care for it. So what I like to watch this show, HOW is it hurting you in anyway? I am never one to frown upon Black people doing good for themselves. But from the looks of you and your comments, you seem you are just unhappy with life in general. But I am not. So please, don’t fuck my vibe.

    Anyway, LMAO @ you trying to imagine my household. It is starkly opposite. So what you can do is sit down with all that beaking your doing via computer.

    And people with POVs like YOURS are irrelevant and unnecessary. Did you find it necessary to call me out of my name to get your point across? Are you that incapable of respecting diversity of opinion? Look I am not here to argue with people whose minds are depressingly narrow. If your say constitutes the whole of humanity, I’d rather live on Mars.

    In the future, if my comments, which was to say the least, intelligible and respectful, bother you, please locate the nearest soul who will be able to give a fuck, as I just wasted my last one on you.

    Walk good, Bill.
    🙂

    • Bill January 6, 2013, 7:36 pm

      Simply put, if you do not care for his actions and IF you understand the problems it represents especially with the way the African American family is portrayed on TV you wouldn’t even wanna watch this.

      Black people doing good is Kerry Washington receiving TWO college degrees (but you don’t get a show on that), or black men and women working hard on raising a family, or the way we’re achieving in every arena in life THATS BLACK PEOPLE doing well not Shawty Lo and this this foolishness and the fact you identified this as black people doing well ONLY FURTHER lets me know you did say the smart kids were acting white for getting an education!

      AND….If you are 20’s something let me educate you. Stop reveling in foolishness, pick up a book, turn to MSNBC(That’s National News), find enjoyment and fulfillment in things that impact you like the Debt Crisis and student loan reforms and things like that because it impacts you.

      I’m trying to help….because you sound like you need it…but I just have a couple questions, Are you one of his Baby Mamas? Did they name you DymaDee The Low Standards Mama? LOL and I did this all without cussing or anything (You proud of me?)

      • Tamika January 6, 2013, 8:06 pm

        Woooh Chile! She tried awfully hard to defend herself then say she doesn’t care… O_O. She should walk good, better yet, have a seat.
        I made sure I signed that petition.

        • Tonya January 6, 2013, 8:12 pm

          LOL, I died when you called her DymaDummy!!! HAHAAAAAAA!

  • Jabari January 6, 2013, 5:10 pm

    See, Luvvie, I said I was gon’ be good in 2013….why you no wanna let me be good….But on to this show, Dr. King, Medger Evers, Rosa Parks, Harriett Tubman, W.E.B DuBois, Booker T. Washington, Fredrick Douglass (along with a host of others) are just a turnin’ in they graves rhet na!!!!! LORD JESUS!!!!! We, as black folks, need grab this fool and brood and put the back in obscurity. Have we no pride!!!!! Oh, chile, I needs me my drink *grabs the Henny bottle*

  • Islandista January 8, 2013, 8:24 pm

    So I’m late to this but I just have to wonder – the chicks like DymaDee and Mrs. Hamilton who are defending this – where are you living?

    Why are we supposed to give this man kudos for being grossly irresponsible? I don’t accept this argument that this kind of dysfunction is just par for the course and we should just be glad for the few crumbs we do get – like a damn reality show exposing our dysfunction to the world. No. NAWL.

    You’re insulting my husband with that mess. And my grandfather and uncles and the vast majority of the guys I know who have their children with one wife or girlfriend and are out there TRYING their hardest to be excellent fathers, not just dropping their seed willy nilly about the place.

  • MimiLuvs January 9, 2013, 5:21 pm

    First off, I would like to say a “Happy New Year’s” to everybody!

    A small part of me wish that the blogs stop speaking about this show and this Shawty-Lo character, because all of the blog writers are doing is providing free publicity for the show. And we all know that in regards to the entertainment business all news is good news for them.
