Controversy
We told you about this story a couple weeks ago, and asked if you thought it was a cheap Christian imitation.  Turns out, legally, it may be. “The Real Housewives of the Bible” insist they answer to a Higher calling — but now, the show’s creator may also have to answer to Bravo … because the network claims they NEVER signed off on the project. If you haven’t seen the show … it’s because it went straight to DVD …. and it’s also not a reality show … but rather a scripted series with some seriously religious story lines. Problem is … Bravo holds the trademark on the “Real Housewives” name … and the network claims “Bible Housewives” creator Ty Adams never got permission to use it. A rep for the network tells TMZ … “Bravo is in no way associated with this project” … adding, “We vigorously protect our trademarks and take appropriate action when necessary.” via Bravo: We NEVER Authorized ‘Bible Housewives’ | TMZ.com.

Controversy
Ty Adams, a web-based evangelist and author, is producing “The Real Housewives of the Bible,” a two-part DVD series that tracks six women dealing with the ups and downs of marriage as they strive to be good wives. Adams said that “outrageous reality shows” like Bravo’s “The Real Housewives” series and VH1’s “Basketball Wives” inspired her to create a more wholesome version of the franchise. “I was frustrated with what I was seeing,” she said. “A lot of society is looking towards programming to educate them on relationships and these shows haven’t effectively done that.” “They have ruined and tainted our ability to secure good relationships and to make women into good wives,” said Adams, who is based in Detroit. Each character on the show represents a different woman from the Bible. A character based on the biblical Sarah struggles with infertility. (The biblical Sarah was barren until she reached old age). Gold-digging women are likened to Delilah from the Book of Judges, who seduced and deceived Samson – who’d fallen in love with her – through repetitious requests. And the show features plenty of Jezebels. “Many single women can get a man but they can’t keep a man,” Adams said. “So many singles have been in girlfriend status for so long that they only understand that mentality. They don’t know what it takes to be a good wife in order to sustain a relationship and some parts of society promotes that.” via CNN Belief Blog OK… you’re the jury today:  GREAT idea, or just another Christian rip-off?
