Another Reality TV Show in the Making: ‘Preacher Wives’

February 1, 2012  |  

I know, this reality TV thing is getting out of hand, and now TLC wants in on the “Real Housewives” magic. The network is partnering with True Entertainment, the production company behind “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” for a new reality series under the working title of “Preacher Wives.”

The series will follow the “First Ladies” of Atlanta area churches, showing how the women balance being preacher’s wives in the congregation with taking care of their home lives. True Entertainment president Steven Weinstock says:

“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.”

TLC didn’t announce a projected air date, but one thing is evident: the wives franchises are here to stay.

I wonder what sorts of church secrets this series will dig up. Will you check out Preacher Wives?

    Besides the fact that we dont need any more reality tv shows , i think this one is a really bad idea. Along the lines of what some others have said, this could really blow up in people`s faces. the show is about the rich and infamous, so they will have to find the preachers and wives who are earning the millions, driving the best cars, and running the biggest cathedrals. A lot of people already have a bad impression about such preachers and their lives, does it really have to made worse by portraying the wives the way all the other housewives have been portrayed, as loud, backstabbing, indecent individuals? All these preachers and their wives should be sayin `no thank you very much`.

      Please don’t bring a reproach on God, yourself, or the church.

    In order for reality shows to survive they have to be laced with extremely poor behavior and language.  Yes, preachers’ wives are human and are not without sin, but when you take on that role you have to be obedient to God, show compassion, and less concerned with material things.  In other words, there shouldnt be any foul behavior.  I guess what Im trying to say is that I dont want to see out of control women.  Yes, there are preachers’ wives who are like this, but I dont want to see it on television as the norm.
