The Real Church Ladies of Burndale

The drama queens of high school and the real housewives crowd ain't got nothin' on the ladies of the church. That goes double when they've known each other since childhood. I know, because I am one of those church ladies. While the real drama is not quite as blatant as this skit from It's a Southern Thing, it's simmering beneath the surface, possibly over the course of many years. The good news is that for every drama queen, there are many others who stay silent and keep their egos in check for the greater purpose. Still, if someone were to launch a reality TV show about a church, this type of woman would bag the starring roles, because we love to watch epic dysfunctionality wherever it may arise. Bless their hearts.
