Christian evangelist Ty Adams has produced a two-part DVD series entitled, "Real Housewives of the Bible." Rather than fussing over cat-fights, makeup and money, the characters in Adams' series (each will represent a different Biblical character) will be coping with real life issues. CNN's Belief Blog has more:
Adams said that “outrageous reality shows” like Bravo’s “The Real Housewives” series and VH1’s “Basketball Wives” inspired her to create a more wholesome version of the franchise.
“I was frustrated with what I was seeing,” she said. “A lot of society is looking towards programming to educate them on relationships and these shows haven’t effectively done that.”
“They have ruined and tainted our ability to secure good relationships and to make women into good wives,” said Adams, who is based in Detroit.

On her web site, Adams describes the series in-depth and presents some of the real-life issues it covers:
From adultery, divorce, and unfulfilled expectations, the drama continues as we share the struggles of several married women as they attempt to maintain their status as wife through troubled seasons of marriage with trust, stability, and doubtful times as to why they even became a wife in the first place.
So, the "Real Housewives of the Bible" will show women how to be good wives, while striving to maintain relationships in the midst of trials and tribulations -- an uplifting message, indeed.
