We told you last week that despite petitions and quite a few black sorority and fraternity members publicly sharing their disdain for the show, VH1 decided to go ahead and greenlight the controversial reality show, “Sorority Sisters.” In case you missed the alleged plot line for the program, here it is:

Nine women, who continue to honor the traditions and legacies of their respective sororities and chapters, all agree on one main principle: sisterhood doesn’t end after graduation, it’s for life. For these friends and sisters (or ‘sorors’) from celebrated historically black colleges and universities in Atlanta, strong ties to their organizations lead to fierce rivalries, but through thick and thin, these women stand united and share an unbreakable bond.

“Sorority Sisters” follows the lives of women from four different sororities. Since these ‘sorors’ are pledges for life, they are expected to continue their community work long after graduation. From long-awaited reunions, to managing the men in their lives, for these line sisters, it’s homecoming all across the ATL. These ladies have a lot at stake – their aspirations, reputations, livelihoods, friendships, and families – and the legacies of their sororities.

But after the network released a new extended trailer for the show over the weekend, it seems like the description ignores a big chunk of the drama that will go down and that is very present in the nearly five-minute clip. Many of the women clash over business moves, gossip and pure pettiness, and you can already pinpoint who will be the show’s designated villain for the first season (I’ll let you figure that out).

But there are some bright spots. Some of the women are vulnerable in a refreshing way, and it seems like there will be moments of actual sisterhood. But will we actually witness that more than the foolishness?

Don’t hold your breath.

Check out the trailer for yourself and let us know if you think this show will really display the “scholarship, sisterhood and service” aspect of black sororities that those behind it say it will.

“Sorority Sisters” will premiere tonight on Vh1 at 9/8c.
