Our faithful readers may remember back in February of this year, NewsOne brought you the news of an as yet to be scheduled reality show tentatively titled Preacher Wives, following the not so saved lives of “First Ladies” from prestigious churches in Atlanta.
The view from inside their world as they support their husbands and churches, is a radical and candid rendering of how most people might view their role. They argue, get tattoos, work out to look hot and talk openly about sex, drugs and their not-so-godly pasts in a series certain to shake the Bible Belt.
Catch a sneak peek below:
“The only thing we agree on is we all love God,” says one of the ladies, “everything else is up to chance.”
As previously reported by NewsOne, TLC is partnering with True Entertainment, the production company behind The Real Housewives of Atlanta. True Entertainment president, Steven Weinstock, shared his excitement about this unexpected partnership and also the rationale behind the new series:
We are excited to work with TLC to profile the lives of these strong-willed women. With most praise in religious communities directed towards male preachers, we are thrilled to give these remarkable ladies the spotlight they crave and deserve.”
Preachers’ wives who “crave the spotlight”? Way to sneak a jab in on them, Weinstock.
We’re not exactly sure what message this show is hoping to convey. First Ladies: They can be just as materialistic, catty and filled with drama as all the other reality show divas? If nothing else, the show is sure to give a few congregations something to talk about.
