T.D. Jakes Not Ruling Out Reality TV?

Bishop T.D. Jakes is not completely ruling out the possibilities of starring in his own reality television series in the future.

However, the senior pastor of The Potter's House megachurch in Dallas, Texas, made it clear that he is not ready to bring his family into that venture anytime soon.

"Your home life and your private life is the final frontier. Its the only thing that you have left, and some people can cast it away quite easily,"Jakes explained to recently. "But I really enjoy my family life without bringing cameras into it. [It's] a place that refuels me, and reinvigorates me."

While Jakes expressed his doubts about featuring his family on such a platform, he didn't completely shun the idea sometime in the future.

"I doubt that I would ever do a reality show that invaded the privacy of my wife and my children and my life like that," he told Hip Hollywood. "Some other people may choose to do that and I doubt that I would, but I wouldn't say never, just not right now."

Jakes recently took to the pulpit to speak out against the new Oxygen docu-series "Preachers of L.A."

"Now, I know you been watching that junk on TV. I want to tell you right now, not one dime of what you're sowing right now will buy my suit. I want you to know my car is paid for," Jakes told his congregation Sunday, according to EEW magazine. "I want you to know I got my house on my own. I want you to know I'm not bling-blinging. I am not shake and bake. I had money when I came to Dallas and I plan to have some when I leave."
