Question VH1 Sorority Sisters

I figured I miduswell post this.

http://www.vh1.com/shows/sorority-si...1107671/video/

http://blog.vh1.com/2014-12-11/vh1-s...december-15th/

http://madamenoire.com/495616/despit...nta-next-week/

It premiers Monday at 9:00pm.

They are in ATL. It is a sorority version of Real Housewives of ATL, Love & Hip Hop, Basketball Wives, etc.

I could figure out the sororities based on tonight's preview. Thankfully (hopefully?) these BGLO women have been advised and therefore know not to use official symbols. They can use colors and unofficial symbols but not official symbols. One of the women said "...we stand for 'scholarship, sisterhood, and service'" so people can figure out her affiliation.

With all of that said, I'm curious enough to watch one episode if I happen upon it. I won't put it in my calendar.

Their affiliations are supposed to be hidden? I heard one woman refer to another as an AKA in the trailer so I figured they were allowed to be called by name.

There's already a boycott underway. I don't intend to watch but my curiosity will probably get the better of me with with the first episode.

LOL. Are you talking about the "AHHKA" statement?

I don't think the identities are supposed to be hidden to those of us aware of what an "AHHHKA" is, unofficial symbols, and overall cultural markers. For the people unaware of that stuff, it can be considered hidden. To be fair, most people unaware of this stuff (including some much older BGLOers) would probably not watch this show in the first place.

I watched the trailer you posted and I'm hooked. I'm not NPHC but, I could figure out who belonged to what group if them wearing particular colors was any indication. I got the impression on the extended cut video that they have a white soror that was added to the mix. This might be really interesting.

I have to say that I cringed at the description of the show when it explained that most white sororities do not view sisterhood as a lifetime commitment. Ugh! We need to step away from that.

"White Deltas"been there, done that. It doesn't become interesting all over again just because VH1 is tackling the issue.

If I watch Monday's premier, it will be to chuckle at the historic rivalries still being hashed out in 2014 for the sake of TV. LOL.

Oh, I knew this was probably something not new to all of you. It makes great for TV for people who did not know that there could be such a thing. If there were no historical rivalries--would it really be all that interesting? Once it comes out, we must discuss this show because I'm a glutton for anything reality.

Because some of us have been on GC long enough to remember the first time a network aired a show featuring sororities, and we were still having the same conversations 10-12 years ago:

Don't know why, but the enthusiasm I heard in my head when I read this made me both giggle and wish for Sen to live tweet his viewing.

I am not good at live tweeting, but I just might blog about it on oldgoldsoul.com later this week if I liked it.
