A group of former minister’s wives are now shopping a new ensemble reality show called “Preachers’ Exes.”
Inspired by the book, “3PM: The Preacher. The Power. The Penis & Me,” written by the show’s executive producer Cheron K. Griffin, this “non-scripted docu-series” pilot aims to shed light on how “most churches have mess from the pulpit to the pew.”
The reality show stars Griffin and other former ministers’ wives including Lynn Littlejohn, Ysidra Kyles, Rochelle Mudd, Chinaza Duson and DiShan Winters. Names of the preachers these former pulpit princesses were married to were not disclosed.
A description of the show claims that “America has been afraid to deal with the issues of the pastor and those who have been involved with the pastor.” The six ex-wives featured on “Preachers’ Exes” apparently come together to “celebrate their freedom,” while tackling “their own demons” and learning “forgiveness” in their new lives.
Scene from “Preachers’ Exes”
On the sizzle reel for the series, the women tease their respective storylines. It is disclosed that cast member Mudd was actually married a gay preacher; Griffin discovered upon returning home from the hospital following a miscarriage that her husband placed an ad on ChristianMingle.com looking for a new wife; and Littlejohn’s husband was fathering children outside their marriage.
The series snippet also shows the women partying at some hole-in-the-wall lounge, drinking and bull riding at an entertainment complex called Ubar, and oddly wearing t-shirts promoting “Preachers Exes” while having lunch together. (This show claim to be “non-scripted,” but obviously their wardrobes are!)
The ladies also receive therapy from a preacher named Pastor Juan Bellard, and later attend the storefront church where he preaches and they are seen crying, shouting and doing a holy dance.
The TLC Network attempted a similar type of reality series called “The Sisterhood” with actual pastor’s wives back in 2013. AlwaysAList.com exclusively reported on April 23 that the show had been canceled after just one season.
