God's Warrior returns to Trading Spouses
The Ponchatoula, Louisana mom traded places with a far crunchier, less godlier mommy from the Northeast. What resulted was a hissy fit of epic proportions as Perrin spontaneously vomited and bullied her way through her cross-familial exchange. Upon her return to Louisiana, she unleashed a monologue John Waters only wishes he had written. There's no nice way to put this - the self-proclaimed "God Warrior" went off her meds. In a rambling, frightening stream of conscious rant - Perrin accused her own family of not praying for her and railed against the "dark-sided" forces that had entered her home. She booted the camera crew and refused the cash owed to her for her family's appearance.
And, then, Perrin reconsidered. Not only did she accept the $50,000, which she used to pay for gastric bypass surgery, Perrin created a website, made a stand-up comedy CD and milked her fifteen minutes for every precious red penny she could get out of it. She'll get another round of free publicity when she appears on Trading Spouses for a second swap on January 19th and 26th. The two-part episode features an African-American family from St. Petersburg, Florida. I would offer up all kinds of commentary on how perverse the producers of this show are and on Perrin's own strangely complicit turn, but I'm too busy praying for the family in Florida.
