Rodney Van Johnson from "Raising Whitley" stars in the OWN reality docu-series.

An Ohio native, Rodney Van Johnson attended the University of Cincinnati and is in their Hall of Fame in Track & Field. He still holds the record in both the high jump and the 100-meter dash. He is the father to two boys, Quincy and Alexis, who he says are both "amazing."

Rodney began acting 25 years ago and is best known for his soap opera roles, appearing in "The Young and the Restless," "Port Charles" and "Passions." Kym and Rodney met in an acting class decades ago, went out on a date that did not work out, and instead became close friends.

Rodney is very handy with tools, loves to fix things, and is a master in the kitchen, so it's no surprise that he is a real charmer with the ladies. He loves inventing and developing new products, most recently a "Don't Feed" T-shirt line alongside Kym Whitley that alerts caregivers of children with allergies of what they should and should not eat. He is hoping the shirts will prevent many allergy-prone children from exposure to foods and items that trigger dangerous allergic reactions.
