Preachers of L.A. Trailer: Coming This Fall

Lord Jesus take the reality wheel and stir these godly men in the correct direction. OXYGEN has revealed the supertrailer for “Preachers of L.A.” and you’ll see why this is going to be one of the most-talked about reality shows to hit the small screen. 

There’s a new reality show headed to the small screen and it stars a group of handsome men in LA who drive Bentleys, wear expensive clothes and jewelry, live in fancy homes, have tons of women (wives, girlfriends, baby mommas and side Pieces ) AND some gang affiliation.  It could be the perfect brew for an urban reality show about athletes or rappers, but…..it’s about men of the cloth and to tell you the truth some of them are straight Pickles!
Though previous reality tv series devoted to “the church” failed to connect with audiences (remember The Sisterhood?), the supertrailer for “Preachers of L.A.” looks like it has the right amount of foolywangery  to connect with folks at the watercooler.  
 The word around the Prayer Cloth is that LisaRaye would be appearing as Bishop Noel Jones love interest.  However, we didn’t see her in the trailer.  In fact, Noel was dating “another” woman.  Perhaps they’re saving LisaRaye for a big reveal? 
According to the press release, 

“Preachers of L.A.” will give viewers a candid and revealing look at six boldly different and world renowned mega-pastors in Southern California, who are willing to share diverse aspects of their lives, from their work in the community and with their parishioners to the very large and sometimes provocative lives they lead away from the pulpit.”

And from the looks of it…the lives they lead aren’t too different from the ish we see on “Basketball Wives” and “Love & Hip Hop”. 

Here are the cast bios:

Bishop Noel Jones (@BishopNoelJones)
A Jamaican born into poverty, Bishop Noel Jones has made his way to the other extreme, now living on a hilltop with a view of the Pacific Ocean, Malibu at his feet, and across the street from the former home of the late L.A. Lakers owner, Jerry Buss. The pastor of a church full of celebrities, and the brother of Grace Jones, Bishop Jones is headed towards retirement and looking for a successor who he can entrust his life’s work. But finding the right man is harder than it sound.
Deitrick Haddon 
The son of a bishop and an evangelist, Deitrick was preaching at the age of eleven and conducting the church choir at thirteen. At twenty-three he married the woman he was expected to marry – the lead soprano of the church choir. However, everything didn’t continue as perfectly as the church had hoped. Deitrick and his wife got a divorce and the members of the church shunned him. Aside from the call on his life, the one thing that helped him from hitting rock bottom was his music. A dynamic personality, singer, songwriter, and preacher, Deitrick finds himself at an impasse in life. Which road will he choose?
Bishop Clarence McClendon 
Bishop Clarence McClendon appears throughout the world on his weekly international broadcast, which is available in 250 million homes worldwide. This charismatic and ubiquitous bishop has been noted for his contemporary and relevant approach to the Gospel. He believes the Gospel is not only for the down and out but for the up and out. His ministry spans from skid row to the estates of Bel Air. When challenged about what many have called his prosperity Gospel, Bishop replies, “there is no other kind of Gospel.”
Pastor Wayne Chaney
At the age of twenty he got the call from God and has grown to become a prominent pastor of the church his grandfather built. Fast-forward 10 years later, Antioch is the leading church in its community. With an ability to communicate complex truths in a simple way, Pastor Chaney has helped remarkably grow the church, along with the help of his secret weapon, his wife, gospel artist Myeshia Chaney. While Antioch is poised to become the next mega-church with the ability to reach millions worldwide, there’s an obstacle in the way and it comes from within Pastor Wayne’s own family.
Bishop Ron Gibson
Born in Compton, addicted to drugs before he was a teenager, a leader of the Crips by the time he was sixteen, a robber and a pimp, Bishop Ron Gibson was the least likely person to end up a preacher. He now changes the lives of 4,500 people each week at the Life Church of God in Christ, which he started with only nine people in the congregation. Through it all he’s accumulated great wealth, power and purpose. However, there’s one thing he and his wife would give it all away for – a child.
Pastor Jay Haizlip (@jayhaizlip)
One of the pioneering greats of competitive skateboarding, Pastor Jay Haizlip, originally from Gadsden, Alabama, collected big trophies, bigger paychecks and high-end sponsors, but fell deep into drugs, and into the crack houses of Huntington Beach and Long Beach, California. Back in the crack houses again, this time he’s not there for drugs – he’s helping rescue souls for the Kingdom. Serving as Senior Pastor of The Sanctuary of Huntington Beach, Pastor Jay Haizlip reaches out to troubled youth, finding them in prisons, skate parks and the same crack houses he once shot dope in.

Here is the Supertrailer I hope you enjoy.

Shawty Lo’s reality show Cancelled

Well hunnie here is the Peppermint Tea that will knock your socks off, Shawty Lo new reality show special “All My Babies Mama’s” Cancelled, before it hit the airwaves! Before his show could even see the light of prime time, Oxygen has canceled the rapper’s “All My Babies’ Mamas” show due to constant pressure.

After defending the show once it started the very short lived publicity campaign, the Oxygen network has put the kibosh on ATL drug honcho turned rapper Shawty Lo’s made-for-foolywang “All My Babies’ Mamas.” That’s right. You won’t be seeing 10 women, who are all mothers to Shawty Lo’s kids, play out their foolish, sad or cringe worthy behavior while Shawty stays in the middle being equally foolish and getting praised for it. Sources say Oxygen will announce cancellation any day now. Interestingly, the network first defended the show by saying, “It was not meant to be a stereotypical representation of everyday life for any one demographic or cross section of society.’’

Oh really? Interesting. Chile Bye!

The creator of the petition, Sabrina Lamb, worked to stop the show from airing. She stated in the petition (the gist of it) that the show would be a horrific example of life for a certain “group” of people. She told the Daily Beast:

“I love that the people who’ve signed the petition are from all backgrounds, ages, and countries. This one elderly white man wrote me and said even he was tired of the stereotypical images of black people.’’

“This show is about more than a rapper and his girlfriends. This is a show about kids who had no choice in how they came into the world. This show sets them up to be ridiculed and made fun of. None of us should be OK with that.’’

Here is her Video

She said on her Facebook page today:

My entire statement will be announced tomorrow (outlining all of our victories) at the press conference and posted here at 12:00 noon-ish. Until then, I thank all 38,000 supporters who stood up for our children and said, “Enough Is Enough!” Oxygen Media awoke a sleeping GIANT!!

Well in my opinion I think that lady should have just not looked at it. Somebody wanted to see that show and I feel we needed to see it.

Here’s to hoping certain other networks follow suit with their foolish shows. But we doubt that will happen soon. Thanks Oxygen for choosing standards over quick money. Anybody can make a buck. But it’s all about who is and isn’t affected when you make one. Clearly, not everyone gives a damn.

Shawty Lo And His 10 Babies Mamas To Star In Oxygen Reality Series | Breaking News for Black America

Now I don’t know what more ratchet. The fact that Oxygen is giving Shawty Lo a one hour special or the fact that he has 10 Baby Mama’s and his 11 Children. I don’t know what to say but I guess someone saw the interest in this one hit wonder and his Ghetto life. The one-hit wonder rapper and G-Unit member, whose actual name is Carlos Walker, is surrounded by the women he bedded as well as their offspring. The project focuses on how everyone is vying for the attention of the homestead’s head honcho (who, by the way ain’t nothing at all to look at) and anti-birth control poster child.

Now what I am not going to do is trying to know all his baby mama’s. Each baby mama has an eye-catching title such as the ‘First Lady E’Creia,’ who handles Lo’s finances and who was actually engaged to him at one point after he already had three children. Then there’s Angela, the “Fighter Baby Mama,” Amanda, the “Jealous Baby Mama,” Sujuan, the “Wanna-be Bougie Baby Mama” and Tamara, the “No-Drama Baby Mama.”

This is already a Pickle, But the Gag is how these women allow this to happen. I guess they are all seeking a chance to get their 15 minutes of fame. Lawd keep us near the cross for this one.

Take a look at the Preview below!
