The Nightmare Continues... Producers Of "Real Housewives" Franchise Developing "Preacher Wives"

Oh Lord… help us (and I’m not even what you’d call religious; but I’m willing to become a “believer” if somehow these “Wives” reality TV shows are miraculously wiped off the face of the earth!)

The production company behind The Real Housewives of Atlanta is pairing up with TLC for a new reality TV series titled Preacher Wives.

Need  say more…?

The series will be based in Atlanta, and will follow the wives of some of that city’s prominent preachers, giving the viewer a glimpse into their public and private lives.

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,” True Entertainment president Steven Weinstock said.

No ETA on when the series will debut, but I bet it’ll be a hit; at least that’s what TLC expects I’m sure (this is their first Wives entry, likely inspired by Bravo TV’s half billion dollar Real Housewives franchise; yes, a $500 million franchise!! Obviously somebody’s watching, even though most folks I ask say they aren’t).
