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.”

Check out a clip of the show here.

Will you be tuning in, Clutchettes?

  1. …hmmm I’ve never seen the title “first lady” in the bible. Is this not merely about gaining a sense of self-importance whilst fulfilling a calling/role/duty described in the bible as servanthood??

    The only person worthy of being put on a pedalstool is Jesus!

    • This is a controviersial comment I’m about to make; but is this so called Jesus really worthy of being put on a pedestal? And as for never seeing th title ‘first lady’ in the bible; people use the bible to taunt all kinds of (untrue) so called quotes from the bible.

  2. If there wasn’t an audience for it, reality shows wouldn’t exist. The lines have been blurred a long time ago. I’m surprised it took this long for them to go this route.

  3. 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.

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