WATCH: Kristin Chenoweth And Leslie Bibb Get Bitchy, Texas-Style, In GCB Teaser

Kristin Chenoweth may still be waiting to play Dolly Parton in the country queen’s unfinished autobiographical musical, but she’s been busy with he new midseason show GCB—a.k.a. Good Christian Bee-yotches—which premieres on ABC this Sunday at 10pm/9 central. Check out a teaser above.

It looks like a Southern-fried version of Mean Girls, with a cast that includes Leslie Bibb (Popular, Talladega Nights), Jennifer Aspen (Glee) and an amazingly preserved Annie Potts (Designing Women). Chenoweth plays Carlene Cockburn, a former nerd turned into a hottie thanks to the blessings of Jesus (and her plastic surgeon)

We hear that a lot of the bitchery goes down during God’s good Sunday Mass.

Ooh, Rick Santorum will not like that.

Below is another clip of Chenoweth and Aspen plotting against Bibb’s character, Amanda Vaughn, who has recently moved back to Dallas with her children after her husband died. Apparently Amanda was the queen bee in high school, where she tried to ruin her gal pals’ lives, and they’re just itching for some revenge.

Well bless their hearts!

      Church, not Mass. In North Texas, Mass is what the brown people go to. It took me years to figure out my grandmother was so defensive about being Catholic.

      I think Mass is a Catholic term and church is all the others. As a Catholic in the pacific NW, we always refer to going to church as “going to Mass”.

      i find it a stretch to believe that Leslie Bibb and Kristin Chenoweth would have been in high school at the same time. Kristin’s character might have babysat for Bibb’s but they aren’t contemporaries.

      @ Oh, ok. : I should have put that (“Mass is what the brown people go to.”) in quotes. Yes, I see a reading of my post that deserves that characterization.

      To offer fuller context: I was born and raised in Texas. Perceptions of Catholicism in North Texas are tinged with racism as well as class. Catholicism is largely considered to be the religion of Mexicans. My grandmother was incredibly sensitive about that given that she was a devout Irish Catholic, but also somewhat of a racist herself and certainly very class conscious.

      Given what we’ve seen about their wealth and lifestyles, these women are certainly some flavor of Protestant and, therefore, not going to be going to Mass.

      My comment was intended to be disparaging of that attitude.

      @John: I agree, I could only take about 10 minutes of it.

      @mdthom: If you type in “GCB reviews” online….they’re unanimously awful.

      I disagree, this show will fly ONLY IF the scripts stay good. It has good bones and the gay and hypocrisy religious angle are perfect for the current culture war. I think it’s great a weekly tv show is finally spearheading Christianity for the hypocritical straw man god fraud it really is. This show is a bit like a christian Dallas on crack. It’s a first. If it gets cancelled it would most likely be from Maggie Gallagher using her fat butt to stink up a storm from the Christian right, tho something tells me even THEY are liking this serious detour into reality.

      Now, I love a good show about rich women being bitches (the great Revenge on ABC and the first season of Downton come to mind) … but this just was bad. It had a couple of good gags (black reporter Bridget Sánchez-Fong was my favorite), but mostly the humor was soooooo belabored. And the women were just too cartoonish to enjoy as bitches.

      Thumbs down.
