Ramona beat me to it, but I couldn't wait to blog about this. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution wrote this article about the new reality show on TLC. The AJC says that TLC is in the works to start a reality show about the lives of pastor's wives.
According to the article: 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.
What?! Why didn't they ask me? Oh, I guess it's cause we're not living in Georgia anymore. That's the only reason, right?
Or maybe it's cause I don't have enough drama in my life. Don't they know about the random people ringing my doorbell at 10 at night asking for blankets or eating the goldfish crackers in my front yard. What else do they want?
Or maybe it's because according to the Huffington post, they are highlighting women who: The Real Housewives of Atlanta," will follow the "outspoken ladies who work to ensure that their churches run as smooth as Southern-churned butter."
Southern-churned butter? Well, what church is that? And really what is southern-churned butter? Is this some kind of slam against Paula Deen and her recent diabetes ordeal.
Okay, back on topic. How in the world can this be a good thing? Most women that I know who are married to ministers don't want to be on a reality show. I guess I can hope that it will show ministry in a good light. But, it's just not going to be a real look at ministry. I guess it could give the general public a glimpse into the lives of ministers and their families.
I read in one of these articles that the wives in this show will be married to pastors who at mega churches and have to deal with financial issues and groupies going after their husbands. I can relate to the financial issue part, but Steven doesn't have any groupies. So, I probably won't get tapped to be in this latest reality show.
