Burbank, CA (August 6, 2013) - Guest star Kym Whitley ("Raising Whitley," "Animal Practice") will participate in a live chat via Twitter during the East Coast broadcast of ABC Family's "Baby Daddy" on Wednesday, August 7th, from 8:30 - 9:00 p.m. ET / 5:30 - 6:00 p.m. PT.
Kym Whitley guest stars as Riley's former boss on ABC Family's original comedy series "Baby Daddy." In order to ask Kym questions, fans should tweet directly to her handle @kymwhitley and include the hashtag #BabyDaddyChat in their tweets. In the episode titled "Whatever Lola Wants," Ben offers to dog-sit for his girlfriend Megan, but the dog doesn't seem to like him much. Tucker has had it with his roommates' messy habits so Danny hires two cute girls to clean the apartment. While the boys are away, the girls rob them, and dognap Lola. Meanwhile, Bonnie convinces Riley to get a home spray tan before her interview to get her job back and ends up botching the tan. In order to prove to her old boss (Kym Whitley) that she's not "too nice" to work for the firm, Riley sues Bonnie.
"Baby Daddy" follows Ben (Jean-Luc Bilodeau), a young man in his early 20s living the life of a bachelor as a bartender in New York City with his buddy, Tucker (Tahj Mowry), and his brother, Danny (Derek Theler), a professional hockey player. Their lives are turned upside down when they come home one day to find a baby girl left on the doorstep by an ex-girlfriend of Ben's. After much deliberation, Ben decides to raise the baby with the help of his friends and his protective and sometimes over-bearing mother, Bonnie (Melissa Peterman), and his close female friend, Riley (Chelsea Kane), who has had a secret crush on him since childhood. Riley is hopeful that Ben will finally take notice, but she doesn't realize that Ben's brother, Danny, is harboring a secret crush on her.
