Bishop Noel Jones and Bishop Ron Gibson were in Atlanta last week as they hosted an advance screening for their Preachers of L.A. season 2 premiere episode.
‘Preachers’ officially returns to the airwaves for it’s 2nd season on August 20th and a few Atlanta area tastemakers were treated to a screening, along with a Q&A with the two bishops at Atlanta’s Phipp’s Plaza Theatre.
The faith-based reality show that sparked controversy and critical debate over its dramatic first season, returns with what appears to be more sobering developments in the ministries and lives of all its star Christian ministers. In addition to Jones and Gibson, the cast includes: Deitrick Haddon, Bishop Clarence McClendon, Pastor Jay Haizlip, and Pastor Wayne Chaney.

Pastor Haizlip and Detrick Haddon also bump heads when he reveals he feels ‘some kinda way’ about not being told Haddon’s new wife was with child prior to him performing their wedding ceremony… and last but not least Jone’s ‘frend’ Loretta ‘strikes back’ at the first ladies about her ‘single’ status.

In Episode #6 of Preachers of L.A.(”Staying True to You”), lots of “Preacher’ behavior gets the side-eye (as usual).

Lady Myesha Chaney, Lady Christy Haizlip, and Loretta sit down for lunch at the restaurant Loretta owns with Noel Jones. The ladies discuss Deitrick Haddon’s upcoming wedding and whether or not tattoos are sinful.
Myesha Chaney clearly doesn’t approve of marking one’s flesh with ink, but her husband considers one after watching Pastor Haizlip get one.

Jones blames his travel schedule on his decision not to tie the knot, plus he has a lot of unresolved personal issues (i.e. his daughter by x-factor’s Stacey Francis)

Preachers of L.A. is certainly creating conversation amongst a few of God’s ‘chosen’ ones and Deitrick Haddon, in particular, is striking back against one of the naysayers.
A few weeks ago, Bishop T.D. Jakes basically ‘rebuked’ the new reality show, while his friend, Preachers of L.A.’s Noel Jones dismissed his participation as a willingness to show that Preachers are people too.

While many feel the show is entertaining, some thing the Preachers all made a bad choice simply due to the fact that reality shows are known to expose ‘real life’ reality (whether you plan to reveal all or not).

Haddon, who is no stranger to controversy, admits that he expected the public’s response.
You don’t do something so aggressive and so unconventional and bold, and don’t expect any negative feedback from it, because it is something that has never been done before.
He also specifically addressed Jakes’ criticism, throwing a lil Preacher shade in the Bishop’s direction.
