Funny enough, RHoATL/ex-Xscape member Kandi tweeted that her bf, Todd, is a line producer for the show.
That makes it even more bizarre that she would act like she was a member of Xscape for real vs. in name only for a couple of days. Why lie/exaggerate about something so little? Especially in the day and age of the internet and twitter where the truth can be found out within minutes.
I'm going to watch a couple of more episodes, but I'm not sure I'm all the way in yet. I'm a preacher's wife and know my fair share of first ladies on a personal basis and not one of them act like this. I'm out west though so I don't know if that has anything to do with it.
Regarding finances. In most denominational churches, it's either forbidden or discouraged for the pastor's wife to be on the board (voting for financial issues), and ESPECIALLY to be in a position as treasurer or with any check-signing ability at all.
I was so surprised when she was signing the checks. I know they founded the church but now that it's up to 2000 members I think it would be best they find some trusted members to handle the finances. Their church is non-denominational though so I might be putting my Baptist rules into play there. It would seem though that if anyone begins to question the finances they wouldn't want their hands to be the only ones in it.
I couldn't believe how jealous Dominique was of Christina. She couldn't even fake being happy for them. However, I don't know that I would have given such the grand tour to a couple that had to close their church because of financial reasons.
I was horrified that Ivy would be so open about their sex life. First no one wants to hear all that, but scandals of pastors bedding the women (and sometimes the men) in their congregation is notorious and her letting everyone in her church that the pastor is a freak is just begging for trouble.
I hope this show will have a reunion because I'll be interested to see how these women who "set an example for the congregation" will defend or react to the others talking serious mess.
