Reality star and former NFL-player husband co-host new podcast that takes a fun look at parenting and relationships with topics ranging from preparing for labor and delivery to maintaining a sex life
NEW YORK, July 18, 2018 – Monique Samuels, star of “The Real Housewives of Potomac,” and iHeartMedia, the leading media company in America with a greater reach in the U.S. than any other media outlet, announced today a new weekly iHeartRadio Original podcast Not For Lazy Moms based on Samuels’ popular lifestyle and parenting website by the same name. Fans can stream episodes beginning Aug. 1 on iHeartRadio or download everywhere podcasts are available.
Being a parent in today’s world isn’t easy and moms and dads face challenges every day. From babies who won’t go to bed to teenagers who won’t get out of bed, parents have to deal with it all. And if they’re lucky, they may get an occasional dinner out or maybe even a weekend trip to recharge. To help parents everywhere, the Not for Lazy Moms podcast is coming to the rescue.
The reality television star is joining forces with her husband, former Washington Redskins star athlete Chris Samuels, to bring parents across the country some relief and let them know they are not alone. The podcast will also feature Aly Jacobs, a first-time mom who is the complete opposite of Samuels, and “Cousin Hank” Davis, a forever bachelor who gives his perspective from the eyes of a man with no children or desire to be in a relationship. The weekly Not for Lazy Moms podcast is co-produced by iHeartMedia and will release new episodes every Wednesday.
“We’re excited to team up with iHeartRadio to launch our podcast. Chris and I are parents of two young children with a third one on the way, and not a week goes by when at some point we don’t feel overwhelmed, exhausted or frustrated,” said Samuels. “This podcast is to let parents know we all have moments when we question whether we can do it all and make it through the day. I hope the ‘Not for Lazy Moms’ podcast will not only provide support, information and resources but also make listeners smile and let parents know everything is going to be OK.”
“Not for Lazy Moms is a destination for moms and dads alike who sometimes just need a little help keeping it all together,” said Chris Peterson, Senior Vice President of Podcasting for iHeartRadio. “There is a lack of podcasts throughout the industry that really help women – and men – embrace the challenges of everyday life. Balancing work and parenting while maintaining a healthy relationship is something many of our listeners struggle with, so joining forces with Monique to make ‘Not for Lazy Moms’ into a podcast was an easy decision. She’s a true natural in the studio and we’re excited to bring her words of wisdom to iHeartRadio listeners.”
The Not for Lazy Moms podcast is an extension of Samuels popular website,www.NotforLazyMoms.com. Samuels and her husband Chris will share stories about overcoming obstacles, open up about everyday challenges and discuss ideas and advice for keeping a marriage spicy. Each approximately 45-minute episode will zero in on topics parents think about regularly, such as how to be your own health advocate, preparing for labor and delivery, parent jealousy and maintaining your sex life after having children. The podcast is light, fun and will have listeners nodding along to the comical things all parents go through, but none like to admit.
