TLC picks up Atlanta-based reality show called ‘Preacher Wives’

tlc-logo-300x225There are “Real Housewives,” “Mob Wives,” “Basketball Wives” and even “Sister Wives.”

Next up: TLC has picked up “Preacher Wives.”

True Entertainment, which produces “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” will handle this Atlanta-based series. The press release notes that they are “outspoken ladies who work to ensure that their churches run as smooth as Southern-churned butter.”

Information is sketchy beyond that. TLC said production has not begun and a launch date has not been made though it will likely be in the fourth quarter. I’m not clear if the cast has even been set yet. Spokeswoman Laurie Goldberg declined to comment.

EW got the exclusive on this news.

TLC has ordered a new program that follows strong-willed Atlanta women with leadership roles in the city’s religious community. The women on the show manage day-to-day politics at churches, help troubled or needy congregants, and hire and fire staff. Some even step up to the pulpit to sermonize.

I can’t wait to see how this show displays all the diverse personalities of women in Atlanta! I’m sure that as a native Atlantan, I’ll be proud of how this show represents the city in such a magnificent life. Yay!

Seriously?

@ WPJ, I know the RHOA is all about accuracy considering most of them don’t even live in Atlanta…

I don’t see a problem with the show. Quite a few of them are the biggest GOLD-DIGGERS.

@shirley hemphill, I think “The Many “Sons” of Eddie Long” is a more appropriate title. I’m just sayin…

I wonder if the “Preacher Wives” will talk about the many many affairs their “Preacher Husband” has with the woman in the church. Hmmmmmm?

If TLC wants a really HOT series that will draw in untold numbers viewers (especially MEN) and that will make even the bed-hopping ladies on series like “The Bachelor” blush, their executives will green-light and produce a reality series called “Preachers’ Daughters.”

Will this series focus on what all our wives are doing while hardworking pastors like myself are busy “mentoring” young boys?

I think this is a horrible idea; however, if they get Vanessa Long to sign up, I AM TOTALLY IN BABY!! I’m going to personally invite Jesus over to watch every episode with me and serve some wine and bread to snack on. I’ll be staring at his reactions all night long.

Here’s some suggestions for TLC: Dunwoody housewives @ 8:00, 9:00 central; followed by Inman Park Soccer Moms and finally, John Creek Lonely Housewifves @ 10:00

Just because someone is in a church, preacher or preachers wife, doesn’t make them a Christian, any more than being in a Macdonald’s makes you a hamburger. The world has no clue who Jesus is, especially those who rule the airwaves of television and radio. Don’t fall for it Church, be aware, keep your eyes on the prize.

Any Preacher’s wife who signs up for this is CRAZY and shouldn’t be expected to be a leader in her church! I guarantee you, they will NEVER get anyone with class to support this mess. Trust me, it will be wives of ministers that hardly anyone knows and they are trying to make a name for themselves.

Reality T.V. went way too far when they started “Baseball Wives”….wow..a bunch of red necks that has absolutely no class at all….they look a hott mess and they look like they all come from trailor parks….disgusting!

Jai I totally agree with you. The only thing this show will do is water down Christianity. That is really a shame. I also believe that they will get ‘wannabe’ preacher wives to do this show. That’s crazy!

Is Vanessa Long still “First Lady” of New Birth, since is no longer Eddie Long’s “first lady”?

I think you all are taking this way too seriously. After all, when God gets off on Saturdays after running the universe all week, dealing with all the problems on earth and in heaven, angels trying to jack the gold bricks that pave the streets, pearls mysteriously missing off the gates on the west side, etc. Do you really think He wants to turn on His 10,000 foot HD t.v. and watch something like the news? He wants to kick back with His son and The Ghost and laugh too. Why do you think we have mega churches, the “space program”, and South Park?
