Orlando Shaw gave an interview to Nashville’s NewsChannel 5 after he appeared at a child support hearing in which he explained “the ladies don’t like me, they love me.” Now it looks like the 33-year-old father of 22 will be getting his own reality show.

Shaw has 22 children from 14 different women. Tennessee estimates that taxpayers pony up $7,000 a month to support his kids. He owes tens of thousands in back child support.

“I was young and ambitious and I loved women. Hey, you can’t knock no man for loving women,” he said in June.

His interview went viral, and Shaw says TV execs have come calling.

This week Shaw told NewsChannel 5, “I’ve had a lot of people from Hollywood calling me.”

He says he signed a production deal with a prominent Los Angeles agency to begin a reality TV show. Any money he makes from the TV show would be garnished to pay for his children.

Shaw claims he is a devoted father, he just can’t afford to pay what he owes in child support. He vows he won’t have any more kids.

When faced with the thought of having a vasectomy, Shaw appeared worried that his genitals wouldn’t work anymore.

“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,” Shaw said.
