Oprah Winfrey Network Will Not Renew Show Featuring Celebrity Pastor John Gray

Prosperity preacher John Gray, who was recently evicted from his church property due to business practices, has now had his TV show cancelled.

After three seasons of “The Book of John Gray” on the Oprah Winfrey Network, the show will not be renewed for another season.

The website of the show at Oprah.com describes “The Book of John Gray” as a “dramedy docu-follow hybrid about the life of John Gray and his uniquely humorous way of helping people.”

Officials at the network did not respond to follow-up questions about why the show was discontinued.

Gray and his wife, Aventer, meanwhile, are considering other TV and film opportunities, according to Holly Baird, their spokesperson.

It’s an understandable decision, from a business standpoint, to cancel a program when the subject can’t seem to stay out of trouble. In addition to the eviction, Gray has become something of a joke outside his Christian bubble for his ostentatious displays of wealth, including buying his wife a $200,000 Lamborghini and living in a $1.8 million home funded by his Relentless Church. He’s also facing a lawsuit from a former employee who says Gray didn’t pay him $75,000 that he was owed.

People who have worked with Gray have called him “shady” for not using his large funds (many of which are donations) responsibly.

Let’s hope he doesn’t ask his congregation for increased tithes to solve his recent job loss. If he needs cash, he can always sell off that car.
