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.

The first episode of season 2 reveals quite a few conflicts, the most explosive of which occurs when Bishop Gibson questions Bishop Jone’s 16 year relationship with his ‘friend’ Loretta.
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.

Well, this week was drama filled as well.
As the date for Deitrick’s ceremony approached, Haddon’s family confronted him about his reclusive behavior. It seems Deitrick’s brothers and sisters aren’t too happy about being kept out of the look about his out of wedlock love child, but that’s all a moot point now that lil Destin is here.

Bishop Noel Jones was scheduled to officiate the ceremony but apparently had other plans, so Pastor Jay Haizlip steps up to the plate.
In the end, the Haddon’s wedding goes out without a hitch but we learn another little secret that the newlyweds are carrying…literally.

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.

Bishop T.D. Jakes addressed the show in a recent sermon and basically condemned the show, adding that his own displays of wealth did NOT come from the congregation, but from his own hard work.
Now, I know you been watching that junk on TV. I want to tell you right now, not one dime of what you’re sowing right now will buy my suit. I want you to know my car is paid for. I want you to know I got my house on my own. I want you to know I’m not bling-blinging. I am not shake and bake. I had money when I came to Dallas and I plan to have some when I leave.
You did not buy what I got. I had it when I came here. You know I had it when I came here. The devil is a lie! I have sold enough books and produced enough movies. I don’t need your offering to pay for this little slimy suit. So I rebuke that spirit in the name of Jesus Christ.
But wait… there’s more! Continue Reading…
