GOOD CHRISTIAN BITCHES

By Stephfon Guidry

Saved, Sanctified and a little bit slutty is just a taste of what is in store of audiences this weekend with ABC’s new “dramedy” G.C.B. aka Good Christian Belles. Imagine the Mean Girls with bibles in hand and terrifying one of their frienemies/rivals on her return to their hometown. G.C.B. is filled with comedy and scripture as Kristin Chenworth (GLEE, Broadway’s Wicked), Annie Potts (Designing Women), Leslie Bibb, Jennifer Aspen, David James Elliot, Marisol Nichols, Miriam Shor, and Brad Beyer. Good Christian Belles is takes the desperate real housewives of Dallas, Texas and puts them in the heat of high school rivalry reignited as Leslie Bibbs character, Amanda Vaughn , comes home once her cheating husband dies in a car crash leaving her destitute with her children. Its Annie Potts, playing Gigi Stopper brings her grandchildren to church so “they can Go to Heaven”; Krstin Chenworth and her cronies bring in the funny and faith. Jennifer Aspen commented on the grandeur and Texas-sized antics of the show, “There’s a real admiration of this area, of these people, of this life” (HuffingtonPost.com) In an interview on HuffPostTV, Annie Potts pointedly said, “A lot people don’t think it’s real they think we exaggerate it.”

ABC received criticism on the shows content of Christian values and comedy being based on the book Good Christian Bitches by Kim Gatlin. Critics judge the show narrowly on the fact that it is centered on a group of women who go to church in the South. Some comments like “Christian Bashing” or “Going to Far” have been thrown at the cast before the air date however I will judge this show for myself. If there is a show for a group of alcohol drinking 21 and over on the jersey shore in reality tv well why not have a scripted show from the famed writer of Steel Magnolias Bobby Harling do a show on Good Christian Belles! Tune into the sermons and sexy witted women on ABC Sunday, March 4 10 PM/9 PM!
