Ty Adams, a web-based evangelist and author, is producing â€œThe Real Housewives of the Bible,â€ 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 â€œoutrageous reality showsâ€ like Bravoâ€™s â€œThe Real Housewivesâ€ series and VH1â€™s â€œBasketball Wivesâ€ inspired her to create a more wholesome version of the franchise.
â€œI was frustrated with what I was seeing,â€ she said. â€œA lot of society is looking towards programming to educate them on relationships and these shows havenâ€™t effectively done that.â€
â€œThey have ruined and tainted our ability to secure good relationships and to make women into good wives,â€ 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.
â€œMany single women can get a man but they canâ€™t keep a man,â€ Adams said. â€œSo many singles have been in girlfriend status for so long that they only understand that mentality. They donâ€™t know what it takes to be a good wife in order to sustain a relationship and some parts of society promotes that.â€
