From The BVX — On Saturday (May 28), Web evangelist and author Dr. Ty Adams is hosting the live DVD taping of ‘The Real Housewives of the Bible,’ which is her unique way of adding her spiritual message to modern day love and romance.
Though it’s not quite clear who will be involved in the Southfield, Michigan-area taping, it’s safe to say that folks probably shouldn’t expect Danielle Staub or NeNe Leakes to show up. Adams explains that the ‘Real Housewives of the Bible’ will address the “challenges and the obstacles of trying to become a wife, and then when you finally do become one, how to stay one. We’re going to deal with sex, relationships…we’re going to bring in a whole ‘nother level. We’re going to bring the ‘Real Housewives of the Bible’ alive.”
Most fans of reality TV are quite familiar with the high drama and family scandals that make Bravo’s ‘Real Housewives’ franchise so popular. Adams looks like she’s ready to target that same viewership from a more spiritually righteous perspective. (Side note: We wonder if she got permission to use the show’s theme song.)
Adams, who has written the ‘Essence’ best-seller, ‘Single, Saved and Having Sex’ and the forthcoming,‘Married & Not Having Sex,’ has a rather conservative outlook on sex from a quick survey of her online videos. In one clip, she preaches the importance of controlling the “sexual struggles of the mind,” in which so-called sinful thoughts (up to 5,000 times per day) about masturbation, sleeping with someone you’re not married to and pornography can take one away from what she calls “God’s will.”
