'The Sisterhood'--Meet TLC's Preachers' Wives

The Sisterhood cast

TLC's reality show The Sisterhood follows five Atlanta women who are married to preachers. Far from reserved or demure, these women don't walk in their husbands' shadows but are themselves forces to be reckoned with.

And these aren't your grandma's preachers' wives. They talk openly about having sex, and doing drugs and dropping out of high school. They don't let their faith keep them from getting tattoos or rocking out dressed in leather or enjoying the finer things in life.

To be fair to the religious world, these women--who are also called "first ladies" in their churches, represent a small subset of evangelicalism associated with the Word of Faith prosperity theology, which maintains--among other things--that financial wealth is a blessing of God and should be embraced.

Meet the cast of The Sisterhood and find out more about these controversial preachers' wives.
