Bravo: We NEVER Authorized 'Bible Housewives'

7/18/2011 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"The Real Housewives of the Bible" insist they answer to a Higher calling -- but now, the show's creator may also have to answer to Bravo ... because the network claims they NEVER signed off on the project.

If you haven't seen the show ... it's because it went straight to DVD .... and it's also not a reality show ... but rather a scripted series with some seriously religious story lines.

Problem is ... Bravo holds the trademark on the "Real Housewives" name ... and the network claims "Bible Housewives" creator Ty Adams never got permission to use it.

A rep for the network tells TMZ ... "Bravo is in no way associated with this project" ... adding, "We vigorously protect our trademarks and take appropriate action when necessary."

So far, it's unclear if Bravo has contacted Adams over the matter ... but it sounds like it's only a matter of time.

LOL....Dr phil has a show which say the "Real Housewives" so did he get permission to use the title? And oh btw should all real housewives get permission to call themselves the title? Bravo has the most stupid programs ever.

Maybe they can use real stories from the Bible on Bible wives! That would be very interesting to quote Harvey....

How about Judges 19:25-29 Woman so violently raped and abused that she dies from the assault, but the guy that was with her remains unharmed.

25 But the men would not hearken to him: so the man took his concubine, and brought her forth unto them; and they knew her, and abused her all the night until the morning: and when the day began to spring, they let her go.

26 Then came the woman in the dawning of the day, and fell down at the door of the man's house where her lord was, till it was light.

27 And her lord rose up in the morning, and opened the doors of the house, and went out to go his way: and, behold, the woman his concubine was fallen down at the door of the house, and her hands were upon the threshold.

28 And he said unto her, Up, and let us be going. But none answered. Then the man took her up upon an ***, and the man rose up, and gat him unto his place.

29 And when he was come into his house, he took a knife, and laid hold on his concubine, and divided her, together with her bones, into twelve pieces, and sent her into all the coasts of Israel.

Bible wives sounds like it could be a Horror movie

I wondered about the copyright infringement when I first saw the story on this show. It is sad how many people ignore copyright when it is stolen in the name of their religion -- like the Calvin praying at the cross. Yes, the guys who showed him whizzing on race car numbers and sports logos were also infringing on Watterson, but I actually had a person defend the praying Calvin infringement as okay because it was "for the Lord." Give me a break. Sue her holy tail off.

Reality shows are not reality shows either; they are all scripted.

Not very Christian of them to be committing theft of intellectual property and profiteering off of it. It's a serious offense. What did they think was going to happen?
