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. People.com 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.”
