Reality TV Show in the works for David and Tamela Mann

David-Tamela-Mann Reality Show

Reality TV will not be the same (we pray)

Congratulations to my favorite celebrity couple David and Tamela Mann, as they set out to showcase a wholesome family TV reality show.

They are vibrant characters, full of life, funny, beloved and successful. 25-year-strong Christian married couple, David and Tamela Mann, both 47, are  proof that true love, unity, strength and longevity is possible for husbands and wives in the entertainment industry.

But the drama-free longtime sweethearts, who have officially signed on for their own reality show, “Meet The Manns,” were initially afraid that no one would be interested in seeing wholesome family virtues on television.

In a recent interview with Sister2Sister Magazine, Mr. Mann, known for playing “Mr. Brown” in Tyler Perry’s movies and plays, said, “We really didn’t want to do it at first. And not knocking any other reality shows, but we just didn’t think we had the drama for a reality show.”

The cussing, fussing, hair-pulling, backstabbing and overall pettiness that drives the plots and ratings of today’s most popular and messy shows, would be out of character for the Manns.

25 years and going strong: David and Tamela Mann renewed their vows in a sweet private ceremony in April 2013 (Credit: US Magazine)“So we were like ’No, because we don’t fuss and argue with each other and go crazy.’ So we said, ‘If you can let us resolve issues in the family and show positive love, then we’ll do one.’”

Recent examples like Tina and Erica Campbell of multi award-winning gospel duo Mary Mary getting into ugly arguments on their self-titled WE tv reality show, leading to their temporary sabbatical, no doubt heightens concerns about the true impact of constant lights, camera, action.

The singing sisters, set to embark upon the third season of their program, is also embroiled in a legal batter with their former manager, Mithcell Solarek, who, ironically, helped facilitate the reality TV deal, and is now suing the Campbells, as well as some members of their team.

Despite the fact that the glare of the spotlight and intense scrutiny has proven unhealthy for some families, friends, and colleagues, the Mann family is hoping that they won’t be met with the same challenges.

The couple that just renewed their vows in a lavish private ceremony at the Joule Hotel in Dallas, Texas, on April 20, has a very specific goal in mind.

“We just want to show people that you can have a great relationship between husband and wife,” said Mr. Mann
