Call in to speak with the host
3 Chicks on Lit host Nakea Murray cuts loose with novelists Victoria Christopher Murray and ReShonda Billingsley, whose new page-turner, Sinners & Saints, tells the story of "first ladies" Jasmine Larson Bush and Rachel Jackson Adams, whose hubbies go up for the coveted position of American Baptist Coalition president. When Nakea asks about real-life correlations to the tawdry tale, Victoria replies: "In some circles, a pastor is a celebrity—just like meeting an actor or athlete. They have so much power. And so often we're attracted to people with power. And if you have all that power and you can sing? It's a wrap. So I think that's the challenge that first ladies have." When our host notes, "I wouldn't be surprised if there's a first ladies reality show coming down the pike," ReShonda chimes in, "I know somebody who was shopping something like that. But I would be surpised if they actually did it, because I can't imagine any pastor would want his wife to do it—and want his dirt out there. It's hard to keep quiet. In this day and age, anybody with a cell phone and camera could out them."
It's good to talk.
