Another day, another reality show ‘housewife’ forced to face ‘real life’. *sigh*
Remember that reality show about Atlanta preachers’ wives that aired back in January 2013?
The show, entitled ‘The Sisterhood,’ aired on TLC and was billed as follows:
A candid look into the lives of devout yet fierce preachers’ wives. Known as first ladies, these women work to ensure that their families and churches run as smoothly as possible.
As wives of preachers in Atlanta, first ladies are held to high standards. But like everyone else, they experience struggles and triumphs.
Well, it’s got to be a long hard fall from reality show ‘preacher’s wife’ to prison inmate but one of the stars of the failed reality show ‘The Sisterhood’ is experiencing just that!
Details + mugshot below…
According to Scott’s ‘Sisterhood’ bio, she was the ‘hood’ chick turnt church chick on the show.
Eventually she moved to Atlanta, where she met and married Brian, an Evangelical pastor. The couple has two daughters together.
After years of growing The Good Life Ministry, the Scotts fell on hard times and were forced to close the church’s doors. They are now looking for new opportunities to fulfill their calling, and Domonique is hoping to repair the damage that losing the church caused to her marriage.
‘The Sisterhood’ was canceled by TLC after it’s first season and times must have gotten so hard for Domomique Scott that she went back to her Miami ‘hood’ ways.
Scott now sits in jail after being accused of of creating a fake tutoring company to secure federal funding.
According to the AJC:
A reality television star from Lawrenceville who claimed to tutor low-income students was indicted last week on allegations of forgery, prosecutors said.
A Fulton County grand jury charged Domonique Scott, one of the stars of TLC’s “The Sisterhood,” with first-degree forgery and three counts of giving false statements, authorities said. “The Sisterhood,” which debuted in January, followed the wives of five metro Atlanta preachers. She and her husband lost their church, The Good Life Ministry, after falling on hard times.
Prosecutors said Tuesday that Scott submitted bogus documents purporting false assets and liabilities related to the ownership of a tutoring company that allegedly only existed on paper in an attempt to qualify for the federal Supplemental Education Services tutoring program.
Scott sent to the state Department of Education a false balance sheet, a false statement of net income, a program summary showing a false start date for her company and a forged letter from a fictitious bank representing a non-existent cash line of credit, prosecutors said.
Scott’s company was hired to tutor students in DeKalb, Clayton, Bibb, Richmond and Muscogee counties as a result of the fraudulent documents, prosecutors said.
The federal program eventually dropped Scott’s company, prosecutors said.
If convicted, she faces up to 25 years in prison and fines of up to $400,000.
