Shamed Pastor Ted Haggard Getting His Own TLC Reality Show?!

| Filed under: Reality TV

Wow. That network is full of surprises!

Ted Haggard: Scandalous is a one-hour special for TLC, but if it does well, it could lead to a full fledged series.

If you don't remember, Haggard was the head of the National Association of Evangelicals, which had 30 million followers across 45,000 churches, but it all came tumbling down when he was caught having an affair with a male prostitute and using crystal meth.

The former pastor has been working with his wife and five kids to rebuild their lives. It follows them as they build a new ministry in Colorado Springs, the same city he left after the scandal.

Haggard said:

“My family and I endured the darkest hours imaginable in the public spotlight, and have spent the last four years fighting and struggling to rebuild our lives, our faith and our family. Showing the world the new chapter of our lives will hopefully inspire others to find their own path to overcome their struggles and embrace the power of acceptance. The church is open to all, even those who have committed the darkest sins.”

Wow. The special airs on January 16th.

Will U be watching?!

    I have no words to describe my feelings about this



  2. 2

    This man (and I use the term loosely) is living PROOF that Christians are STUPID as HELL!!!!



  3. 3

    He sounds like an injured victim here. HE put himself and HIS family there. HIM! No one else. STFU and STFD.



  4. 4

    The title will be "Shoving my Shriveled Dick up the Herpetic Ass of a Male Hooker." Sarah Palin will be jealous because it will kill her shit show in the ratings.



  5. 5

    NO, there is nothing good about this man. He claims he is no longer gay. BULL FUCKING SHIT YOU LIAR!!!

    Re: Bellagio – Actually if you do a little research on the subject you'll learn that Ted was the bottom.

    it's NOT A SIN TO BE GAY. that's his biggest problem. if he would just embrace his sexuality, his life would be a lot easier. and his wife needs to get a clue and leave him for both their goods.

    i used to hate this man, but saw his interview and he owned up to his mistakes, which surprised me.

    i wish he would just grow up and be the person he is. he is not living his authentic self, and that's why he will keep lying and messing up.

    i totally agree that he should just come out about who he really is… that poor family… i also think that religion sometimes can be really harmful…



  9. 9

    He now denounces his openly gay brother from Santa Fe New Mexico (Dan Haggard). Dan is in charge of the state's early childhood education department. Yikes!



  10. 10

    Oh, so NOW the church is open to all…

    Re: sNaTcHqUaTcH – damn, you beat me to it! That's what the crystal meth was for : P

    tlc airs another piece of s**t tv show, tlc lacks any moral standards whatsoever.



  13. 13

    If this guy really wants to change that is one thing, but why give him a reality show over so many who have served the Lord with pride. I am SO GLAD I cut the cord….cable stinks! Enough "reality TV", bring back the paid actors.



  14. 14

    Don't drink his Kool-Aid.



  15. 15

    Wouldn't you love to be a fly on the wall the hear the "real" conversations that took place in that home? If Haggard doesn't show exactly what the "righetous right" has to offer, who does?????? He's the best free advertisement demos could hope for!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  16. 16

    OMG…I just haven't raved about this enough. If your cable/dish provider shows this, it's up to YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Contact them. If they think you will not be viewing their programming…..money talks….he's history. I can't believe I get so worked up about this complete ass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  17. 17

    Yes!!!!! Love this guy and family. I just wish he would have the courage to finally come out. His documentary on HBO was on of the best docs ever!

    HEH! wot a loser!!

    TLC has become such a huge joke. I wonder how long it is until Clinton and Stacey leave the network? It can't be long now. Not after this. They would be a better fit for Style Network, anyway!

    Re: Chasenip – Is he really? One man is proof that billions are people are stupid? You're comment proves that YOU are stupid as hell, that is for sure.



  22. 22

    If he were really serious about rebuilding his life and his family, he wouldn't do this.



  23. 23

    Re: Beccx

    Agreed.



  26. 26

    What a crock

    Anyone who follows or listens to this piece of crap is an idiot

    Lol people sleeping with guys while they are married to a women. Just come out ya homo. This coming from a homo.



  27. 27

    What an Effing Disgrace!! This loser should not have the title of a Pastor and no person should look up to him!! I'm not Christian but this guy is giving such a bad name to them, when Christians are already looked down upon. It makes me even more angry that he gets to be on tv now, because of his eff up!!!!!



  28. 28

    Re: Chasenip – what a close minded comment!!!! So one guy claiming to be christian does something like this and that makes all chrisitians stupid? Thats like saying all black people are ghetto.



  29. 29

    Can you imagine ? Here he was all down on Homosexuality, and he goes off, doing drugs, and having sex with a male prositute ! I guess (perhaps) the drugs were a way, in his mind, that he really wasn't gay - that he was 'bi' when he was 'high'. But really, he obviously has gay tendencies, and he does look like he has the 'gay' gene. The real story would be his 'coming out', accepting the fact that he is gay, and the role his up-bringing and religion had in causing him to push it away. THAT I would watch !
