Man, I am sick of getting spammed with one pointless story after another about Teresa Guidice doing her country club time at Danbury Prison for defrauding the government, banks, friends, television audiences and God knows who else. I am working to get that kind of exposure for women that get 50 year sentences for killing someone that battered them for 20 years and left them no way out except fatal self-defense.
The Brides of Eden want to help bring some dignity back to Reality TV by telling these real-life stories of domestic violence and tragedy and make money to help our food banks get sustainable. When I fled my home with a baby we didn’t end up in a mansion like Teresa’s kids or live on caviar and champagne as she did throughout her trial and conviction process. She got to stay home for the holidays instead of reporting to prison after her sentence. Apparently you get upper class privileges even if you steal your way into the world of the elite.
Here is the overview of what our show will bring to Reality TV. Perhaps we could get a little attention or do I need to go rob a bank?
Orange is the New Black meets Say Yes to the Dress!
A Reality TV Show that aims to educate and entertain, as well as forward social evolution
Voices Set Free, the nonprofit that hosts the Brides of Eden works with the most severe cases of domestic violence – women who had to fatally fight their way out of an abusive relationship or die and then landed in prison as if they were common criminals. Their children get a life-sentence.
We know that the vast majority of the statistics that include nutritionally starved children also represent households steeped in violence or adults and children that have been driven to the streets by abuse. We aim to tackle both those issues – families that need programs to rebuild their lives and food banks that should be offering nutritious foods instead of sugar and bread.
Our tag line is an apt description of what our show will look like. Each week we will be hosting a private Wedding Dress-Up Party for a domestic violence survivor who has survived prison and is working to rebuild herself and her family.
She will unfold the horrific details of her story on camera as our make-up artists and hairstylist work to offer her a transformative new look. Then she will have the thrill of a lifetime as she plays in our closet of couture, off-the-hook wedding gowns – we have hand-painted ones, ones that light up, gowns that glow in the dark, and even one that floats.
Enter our professional photographer, Mike Lindberg and our Flashtag Photo booth. A gaggle of Brides of Eden will join in for a fun, social media driven photo shoot that will plaster our photos all over social media and provide our special guests with a whole album of glossy photos to cherish this special day forever.
Our viewers get a real life – Criminal Minds-esque storyline, an education and a peek at the every changing collection of one-of-a-kind gowns made by Brides of Eden creator Denise Martin, who also has an amazing story of fleeing to the streets with a baby to escape domestic violence.
All this will be filmed at the 5 acre Brides of Eden plantation we have picked out in Tualatin, Oregon where two giant Eden dome/gardens will be growing SuPRANAtural foods and heirloom seeds for our community and the local food banks. The cameras will also visit the domes each episode to help educate our audiences about the healing powers of these special foods.
Not only are we confident in the entertainment and educational value of our show, we have a gazillion dollars in backend sales to hook to it to ensure our financial success and our philanthropic dreams.
The only way we can lose is to not air the show!
