From conversations about sex to catty arguments, these first ladies are using a typical reality entertainment platform to give viewers a chance to see their human side, which is often unexpected and/or overlooked thanks to their husbands' profession and the expectations placed on them by the members of their respective churches. It also highlights some of the culture surrounding Evangelical communities, which often includes conservative values, church scandals, and consistent references to God, the bible, and other religion-based things as a way of understanding -- -and coping with -- the world around them.

The Sisterhood is milder than most reality shows of this kind, but there's lots of awkward moments, especially during interactions with pastors who fall outside of the traditional Atlanta Evangelical community and/or folks who seem uncomfortable with a first lady's personal choices. Folks may find the way these women negotiate the church life with their personal lives somewhat interesting. There's also enough gossipy drama and heated exchanges to keep it voyeuristically entertaining, too, if not necessarily enlightening.
