VH1 Pushes for Sorority Sisters to Air this Monday Amid Criticism & Petitions + [Official Extended Trailer]


As a sorority woman, I am telling you that this show is a train wreck waiting to happen. Mona-Scott Young has taken her name off of this, which now includes other producers from Eastern TV and VH1. Several online petitions have not stopped this show from it’s debut on December 15, 2014. Peep the press release from VH1: NEW YORK, NY – December 11, 2014 – VH1 gives viewers a rare glimpse into the unique world of ATL Greek life with the series premiere of “Sorority Sisters”* on Monday, December 15 at 9:00 PM ET/PT. Nine women, who continue to honor the traditions and legacies of their respective sororities and chapters, all agree on one main principle: sisterhood doesn’t end after graduation, it’s for life. For these friends and sisters (or ‘sorors’) from celebrated historically black colleges and universities in Atlanta, strong ties to their organizations lead to fierce rivalries, but through thick and thin, these women stand united and share an unbreakable bond. “Sorority Sisters” follows the lives of women from four different sororities. Since these ‘sorors’ are pledges for life, they are expected to continue their community work long after graduation. From long-awaited reunions, to managing the men in their lives, for these line sisters, it’s homecoming all across the ATL. These ladies have a lot at stake – their aspirations, reputations, livelihoods, friendships, and families – and the legacies of their sororities. “Sorority Sisters” premieres December 15 at 9PM on VH1.

For some reason, during one of the scenes, Priyanka speaks to Shanna who is dressed in pink and green with lots of pearls. Priyanka mentions sarcastically to MeToya, "I don't know where your Sah-rah is MeToya. MeToya then shoots back, "She's your Soror too." In another scene, Priyanka criticizes April's "little house on the prairie dress," which also happens to be pink and green. (The first of the traditional African-American Sororities, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. have pink and green colors).* Cat has gone on Twitter already to claim that she is a member of the royal blue and gold, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc., (dear to my heart, of which I am a member of).

P.S. If you are wondering what their names are, then here's the cast list: Adrene, April, Cat, Joy, Lydia, MeToya, Priyanka, Shanna and Veronica. Will you be watching? --Penn (@Penney_Peroud on Twitter)

*This neither confirms nor denies their membership in the above mentioned sorority.
