Contrary to my initial post, the cast members were actually allowed to mention their sororities, however it was noted that in the opening credits that show had no greek affiliation.
In the first episode, titled ‘Sisterhood for Life,’ we meet several eccentric members of Atlanta’s African-American Greek community. Adrene Ashford and April McRae are two of the featured characters who happen to be rival sorority members as well as rival boutique owners. There’s also a new kid in town (a rare Caucasian member of the traditionally Black Delta Sigma Theta sorority) who meets with a fellow soror to get a makeover prior to meeting the others.
The show, which is billed as a show which ‘follows the lives of “sorors” from four different Atlanta sororities’ created quite a stir with it’s first episode, with many of the Divine 9 protesting the portrayal of it’s members.
There have are petitions circulating, letters being written and threats of boycotts but that didn’t stop the controversial new reality show from trending last night, with everyone (even the Greeks) tuned in to see just how far it would go!
