Partying, Porn and Pregnancy: Reality Show About Provocative Pastors’ Daughters Called ‘Despicable’


A new reality television show about pastors’ daughters that has begun airing on the Lifetime Television Network is being called “despicable” by a nationally recognized organization that fights for morality in the media.

The program is called Preacher’s Daughters and follows the everyday lives of three teenage girls: Taylor Coleman, 17; Kolby Koloff, 16 and Olivia Perry, 18. As the girls live wild and reckless lives in rebellion against the Scriptures, their pastoral parents struggle with keeping them in line.

“‘Preachers’ Daughters’ reveals a hard-hitting but often humorous look at the lives of these pastors’ daughters as they balance the temptations every teenager faces with their parents’ strict expectations and code of conduct as influenced by their faith,” the network states in a description of the broadcast.

“Get ready to raise some Hell,” one promotional commercial announces, then crossing out the word “Hell” and writing “Heck.”

In one of the sneak peak promotional scenes of the broadcast, Taylor stands before a mirror wearing a halter that exposes much of her breasts, and folds open the fly on her shorts. Taylor is considering a career in pornography.

“God, please don’t ever let my daughter become a porn star,” her father Ken, a Pentecostal preacher, prays.

Other scenes show Taylor walking in a bikini and becoming intimate with her boyfriend.

“If I see the devil rising up, then I have a responsibility to cast him down,” Ken tells the camera.

In another segment, Kolby sits through a talk about sex delivered by her minister mother, who is married to former wrestling star turned pastor Nikita Koloff, also known as “The Russian Nightmare.”

“Now, I want to define what I mean by having sex,” her mother states, becoming specific in her definition as the girl hangs her head in embarrassment.

Another scene shows Kolby’s boyfriend completing an application to date the pastor’s daughter.

“He probably thinks I’m some crazy psycho, and that I take after her, which I do partly, unfortunately,” she says to the camera with a disgusted look on her face.

Olivia, the third teen in the broadcast, is now raising a baby girl, and has to face her parents with the fact that she’s not sure who is the child’s father.

“So, you know how Eden is Shawn’s,” she says as her parents prepare for a shock. “There’s also this possibility that she could be [the child of] this guy named Chase.”

“I mean, how many guys are we talking about?” her preacher father Mark asks. “So, we need to do a paternity test. … Let’s pray for you.”

“I was hanging out with the wrong people. Doing drugs, drinking,” Olivia told ABC News in a recent interview. “I got my license suspended [for a year] after I got in the car accident [after drinking], and then the next day, I found out that I was pregnant. So, it was just a weekend of ‘Whoah.’”

Olivia said that she once sought to prove others wrong that considered her to be a good girl, but now she doesn’t mind that others know that she is a pastor’s daughter.

“I love that I’m a preacher’s daughter now,” she stated. “I don’t want to prove it wrong or rebel against that label. I’m okay with it.”

The broadcast shows Olivia still struggling with smoking marijuana.

Reaction to Preacher’s Daughters, which airs Tuesday nights at 10 p.m., has been mixed.

“It shows all of the different extremes that I have seen other pastor’s kids go through, even my own sister,” wrote one preacher’s daughter. “As a pastor’s kid you have so much more pressure. It’s so suffocating; you don’t know what to do. I went the whole tattoos, piercings route. My sister went the promiscuous, rebel route.”

“This is an insult to all real pastors and their families,” wrote another. “I’m a pastor’s daughter and I can tell you that the men on this show are most definitely not called by God — and they are leading their congregations astray. Jesus requires pastors to be managers of their homes, because if they can’t manage that, how can they lead a church? Shame on whoever is producing this show.”

The organization One Million Moms is especially furious over the broadcast, and is calling for its cancellation.

“This program is not only offensive to pastors, their daughters and families all across the country, but to all Christians,” it states. “As Christians, we know that no one is perfect other than Jesus because we are all born sinners who are saved by grace, but to publicize someone’s struggles for a buck and belittle pastor’s daughters in the process is despicable.”

“Lifetime should be ashamed of themselves,” the activist group asserts. “Networks continuously mock Christianity, and we will not stand for it. Some in the entertainment business have gone too far, for too long.”

“Christians should no longer sit idly by and allow it to continue without speaking up in protest.”
