TLC’s newest reality show is a far cry from “Honey Boo Boo.” The docuseries “Breaking the Faith” follows nine young adults as they build lives outside of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints (FLDS), led by the infamous polygamist Warren Jeffs, currently serving a life sentence in prison for child sexual assault.
In Zap2it‘s exclusive sneak peek of the show, which premieres Sunday, Nov. 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, we meet 21-year-old Angie. “I’m really not supposed to have cameras at the house so I have to be really really careful,” she says as she shows the filmmakers her conservative dresses.
Angie has two mothers and 19 siblings, and says that she would’ve been married if Jeffs wasn’t in prison. Despite the fact that she’s leaving the church, she still refers to Jeffs as “the prophet.” “Warren’s a mouthpiece from heaven. The Lord speaks to him and then he speaks to the people. The prophet is god here on Earth, so we follow his teachings so we can go to the Celestial Kingdom,” she explains.
She also addresses his prison sentence, saying, “I don’t really know why Warren is in prison other than that supposedly he was marrying young girls. I don’t believe it.”
