LOL! Ok, I don’t know why I’m laughing, but I am! Folks are going still going HAM off of Pastor’s Wives of LA. So now it’s the fellas turn. With Deitrick Haddon leading the helm, chile, I can’t wait to see what he is going to talk about! Bishop Noel Jones, Bishop Clarence McClendon, oh girl, this has all kinds of potential to be messy. I do hope though that we get to see some repentance and Gods’ mercy and grace happen in the lives of these individuals who’ve made headlines for those “not-so-christian” moments. So GO!! What do y’all think and will you be tuning in?!
