Singer Kirk Franklin Explains Disappointment with “Preachers of LA”

It is not up for debate whether or not fans of the gospel singer Kirk Franklin will ever see him make an appearance on Preachers of L.A.

While the verdict would have gone out months ago during a December 2013 concert in Detroit, Mich. when he told fans, “You’ll never see your boy on real Preachers of L.A.,” during an interview on The D.L. Hughley Show earlier this week the singer explained why he is “very disappointed” in the show despite the fact that he has good friends who are part of it.

In a trivia section of his radio program called “This or That” the comedian D.L. Hughley asked Franklin’s choice on whether he would rather star in the next season of Preachers of L.A. or have his beautiful wife Tammy (Collins) star in the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta?'”

Franklin declined to choose either of the reality radio show opinions. Hughley then went on to give his take of “Preachers of L.A. by saying:

“I lived in L.A. my whole life, and to me, I thought the purpose of that show was to drag nonbelievers, people who don’t have access to God and don’t have relationship with Him, that it would be so attractive that it would draw them to Him. I think it’s done the opposite.”

Despite the controversy, “Preachers of L.A. was a major hit for the Oxygen Media network, and is said to have averaged more than one million total viewers during its eight-episode run that started in October 2013. The show was renewed for a second season by Oxygen Media and could have potential spin-off series for major cities like New-York, Dallas, Atlanta and Detroit.
