The “First Lady” of a church is a cultural icon in the religious community. She is typically a woman who is impeccably dressed, who carries herself with dignity and who occupies the best seat (and parking lot) in the house. No matter the drama that may exist in her personal life, she always appears polished and in control.

A new reality series promises to delve into what lies beneath a First Lady’s carefully crafted public persona. Premiering on January 1st at 9/8C on TLC, “The Sisterhood” follows the lives of Delana, Christina, Iva, Tara and Dominique, five preacher’s wives in Atlanta.

It promises to be a tad controversial with candid portrayals of their less-than-righteous personal lives. reports: “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.”

Check out a clip of the show here.

Will you be tuning in, Clutchettes?

    Why would some preachers wives be associated with a fake reality show? It just confirms my opinion that the whole church/god/bible thing is a bunch of shigady. Just my opinion; but if the whole christianity thing was really valid why would people stoop to the low of a reality show.

    There are many people in Church that are not christians, even pastors. Jesus said it 2000 years ago.

    She can have all the handcuffs she wants. The beds of married couples are undefiled. The tattoo on the other hand… The fact that she got one and the fact that she did it on television has me at odds with this show’s motives. I can’t deal. This series just seems like a train wreck waiting to happen… In other news, I’m still searching for the church that Jesus built. The one He’s coming back for. All this extra stuff… Naw, I don’t want any part of this!

    Kadis: How do you know what was said 2000 years ago? You weren’t there

    FYI: Jesus never called anyone “Christians”. That’s a term made up after his death.
