Being a working single mother is one of the hardest jobs in the world. But when you have seven children -- ages 7 to 17 to care for while juggling a high profile and demanding career, can this be an impossible task?
In a moving documentary, STYLE viewers will follow YESI ORTIZ, a determined single mom and disc jockey for EMMIS Top 40/R KPWR (POWER 106)/LOS ANGELES. "Single With 7" premieres SATURDAY, JULY 23rd at 9p.
At age 25, ORTIZ's life dramatically changed when her sister became embroiled in legal problems and was sent to jail. As a result, ORTIZ fought for years to adopt her seven nieces and nephews and was finally granted custody in 2009. Today, she struggles to balance her radio career with raising her adopted children -- while trying to manage her complex personal life.
