Genres: Christian Fiction
Reality TV will never be the same! Rachel Adams has just been cast on the newest OWN produced reality show, First Ladies. Jasmine Bush has also been casted but little do these frenemies know, so have women from their past.
For Rachel, it is Mary, the natural mother of her son Lester, Jr. Mary was sent to prison for fraud and identity theft – the same Mary who made Rachel life H-E-double hockey sticks. Mary who is married to an up and coming preacher is now looking for redemption. Since her incarceration, Mary has turned her life around and is now married to a preacher; however, everything is not what it seems. Her husband is a slick talking, anything but a man of God preacher. He has his eye on reality tv and the fortune and fame that comes with it. For Jasmine, it is Natalia, former fiancée of Jasmine’s husband. She is once again determined to get him back at all costs. To make matters worse, for favorite fixer, Olivia Pope’s mentor, Mae Francis is sick with pneumonia!
This drama filled story had me laughing out loud. It is clear that the writers are fans of reality TV. They have captured the good, the bad and the downright crazy of all that is “reality” television. I especially loved the scenes where the producers manipulated the scenes so that the women would attack each other.
Once again Jasmine and Rachel prove, we can mess with each other but don’t you dare! Get the popcorn and Pepsi because this one is drama!
