Orlando Shaw, Dad of 22 Kids by 14 Women, May Get a Reality Show
Remember OKTC's old friend Orlando Shaw, the Nashville man with 22 children by 14 different mothers, well, he's back.
And he's got a reality show in the works.
That and he's about to become a grandfather at 33.
All of this might leave you wondering, why isn't Shaw, wearing a nice all yellow outfit with the word Martian on a t-shirt, considering getting a vasectomy?
Because of the movie "War Horse."
"Have you seen the movie War Horse? I'm a war horse and I don't want to be cut down there and it won't work the right way no more," said a pensive Shaw.
In this version of the story, we see a more contemplative Shaw. This is the father of 22 in winter. Now that he's a grandfather, he reflects upon the fact that his own children don't need to have babies. "I have babies for her," Shaw said of his pregnant daughter. "If she wanted a baby, daddy has plenty for us."
He also wants to combat the ridiculous idea that he's a deadbeat father, although he acknowledges he does not have child support money. "I'm not a deadbeat, I've never been a deadbeat," said Shaw. "I'm a devoted father to all my children."
That's because all of his baby mommas can find him. And if they can't find him? Well, Shaw can find them.
"Out of all my children, all of their mothers can find me -- of i they can't find me, I'll find them. I don't play about with those children," he told News Channel 5 reporter Nick Beres, who has rapidly become the Boswell to Shaw's Samuel Johnson.
In this video, we also meet Shaw's mother, a Memphis Tiger basketball fan, who informs us that she taught her son all about the birds and the bees. And that she doesn't think he intended to have 22 kids.
"No, but since he was messing with the girls, it happened."
Succinct, Ms. Shaw.
Will Outkick be watching this show?
Here's Orlando Shaw's initial interview that Outkick sent viral.
So maybe we have a happy ending coming after all.
Shaw's $7500 a month in child support checks being covered by a reality show paycheck.
Yep, that's 'Merica for you.
