Protest over proposed Oxygen show on prolific music artist

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) -- Oxygen cable television executives aren't talking as negative attention grows about the network's proposed program featuring a musician who has fathered 11 children with 10 different mothers.

The Parents Television Council on Monday asked Oxygen to shelve "All My Babies' Mamas" before it ever gets on the air, calling it "grotesquely irresponsible and exploitive."

The group follows a New York author, Sabrina Lamb, who has launched a petition drive against the show that she said has more than 20,000 signatures.

Oxygen executives wouldn't comment Monday, referring to a statement issued three days earlier that it is sticking by its plans.
