“When I feel like giving up, I look in the mirror…” Ah, yes. I believe Jesus did the same thing in the garden at Gethsemane. What?? Hang on, my husband’s yelling at me. What you sayin? He didn’t? What you mean, Jesus didn’t have no mirror? Dagnabbit, man don’t know what he’s talking about. Now that the theme song is over, we get to Deitrick and Dominique working out. At slow speed. Like two 80-year-olds worrying about breaking a hip. Only 80-year-olds don’t work out in push up...

We all know what the definition of crazy is, don’t we? So why do Loretta and Noel persist in expecting Ron to accept their non-platonic friendship? The one guy on the show who’s against breaking the commandment against adultery is the bad guy, while Loretta and Noel whine that it’s nobody’s business. Well, here we go again. Noel tells us,...

Hard to believe a week has passed and this show still goes on. Deitrick is visiting his “sister” Michelle Williams in her trailer. Seems she’s some kind of singer still after Beyonce pulled a Diana Ross and disbanded the group. But, I digress. He’s there to discuss how the they can exploit help — Kevin Terry, a gospel singer who was...

Hello, Beloveds! Could anyone clue me into when the last Ed Hardy was considered cool? Just asking. “You are the leader!” screams the Preachers of L.A. theme song. All I can say, if these guys are leaders, where in a shiteload of trouble! Let’s start with Ron and Jay cruisin’ in Ron‘s Bentley, creepin’ through the hood. They’re...

Is this an omen? No title for this show? Really? How bad can it be that no one decided to call it something – anything. Like “The More You Cry, The Less You Pee.” See, it’s not that hard to come up with a show title. Now that I got that off my chest, on to the show, beloveds. We open in Noel and Loretta’s house. It is Noel and Loretta’s...

If you could all open your browsers to last week’s episode so you can follow along, we’ll get started. First, a little prayer: Father, What we know not, teach us, what we have not, give us, and what we are not make us. We pray in the name of your son, Jesus. Amen Now we should be ready for tonight’s episode! Seems Deitrick with all his fancy schmancy...

As you may or may not know, your humble correspondent categorizes herself as a “recovering atheist,” so please feel free to correct my opinions on preaching. Now, that being said, I’m beginning to think these Preachers are not doing the right kind of preaching. I’m beginning to think they’re making stuff up. Like this: Dietrick and Wayne...

Well, all I can say is the preachin’ business is good because Ron and Lavette are parking their Bentley — Bentley!! — Let me type that again — BENTLEY!! — at the rehab center to see his sister, Shaunet (at least that’s how they spell it for the deaf). They’re talkin’ drug addiction but all I can think about is the...

Brothers and Sisters, today we open with Dietrick whose Mama Joyce is telling him how great he is but that he needs to go to marriage counseling. Now, our boy doesn’t disagree, but he’s gonna go to a professional because he “knows all the biblical standards of how a family should be ran.” Can we pray that he finds a counselor who also teaches grammar? Bishop...

Family time at the park for the Haddons with both grandmas sitting near each other, and that’s the best time for Dietrick to ask Dominique to recap the Sip and See. Yes, I’d like to hear this, too, because I didn’t see any Sippin’ or Seein’, just shade being thrown. Dominique rightly assumes the juiciest part was Loretta and Lavette bobbin’ and weavin’...
