OWN has pulled the plug on their forthcoming docu-series on Jay Williams, the man who fathered 34 children with 17 different women.
Jay’s multiple appearances on “Iyanla: Fix My Life” created such a huge buzz that OWN saw an opportunity to milk Mr. Williams’ foolishness for ratings and gave him his very own show.
According to their original press release, the show was aimed at following Jay as he works to heal and establish new connections with his family, his children and the mothers of his children. Iyanla Vanzant was also set to remain by his side to hold him accountable during his journey.
Sources close to production said the show wasn’t turning out they way the network had hoped, so they’ve yanking it.
