These days it’s hard to tell reality shows apart: they’re either about spoiled rich folks or about partying 20-somethings. Now, Oxygen is about to introduce a whole new order of reality stars in their new show “Preachers of L.A.” It doesn’t air until the fall and the show has already garnered some controversy.

“The bible says I wish above all things that you would prosper. I believe that,” says one preacher in a promotion for the show. “P. Diddy and Jay-Z, they’re not the only ones who should be driving Ferraris and living in large houses,” says another.

The show follows the lavish lifestyles of six mega-pastors. Critics say that’s their lifestyles are not very Christian-like, but the show’s stars say the biblical bling is the reward, not the mission.
