ABC’s GCB: A Tempest in a Teapot

On Sunday, ABC premiered its latest show, GCB (Good Christian Belles) and the show is already coming under a firestorm of controversy.  Based on the book, Good Christian Bitches by Kim Gatlin, GCB focuses on Amanda Vaughn, a recent widow who returns to her hometown, Dallas, after her assets are seized due to her dead husband’s Ponzi scheme.  Turns out Amanda was a bitch in high school and the girls whose lives she made miserable are determined to make her pay.  Many religious groups such as One Million Moms claim the show mocks the Christian faith to the point of blasphemy, but being from a Southern community myself, I know for a fact that the level of hypocrisy that is portrayed in GCB exists in reality.  The show itself is written very well and has some great cast members like Annie Potts and Kristen Chenoweth.  I am looking forward to seeing next week’s episode.
