After making her reality show debut and declaring that she was once a member of a popular ’90s girl group, a preacher’s wife is being forced to face the music. Ivy Couch, who stars in TLC’s “The Sisterhood” documenting the wealthy first ladies of Atlanta churches, left a number of viewers confused when she said she was a part of singing quartet Xscape. Her bio on the show notes; “most First Ladies do not have a colorful past like Ivy. As one of the members of girl group Xscape, Ivy lived the partying life of a pop star. But since meeting her husband Mark, pastor of the Emanuel Tabernacle Church, Ivy is singing a different tune.”
According to one of the most well-known members of the group however, Ivy’s musical claims are simply untrue. After ‘The Sisterhood’ premiered Wednesday Kandi Burruss took to Twitter to clear the confusion surrounding her rumored singing mate.

Couch has yet to respond.
Xscape consisted of Kandi Burruss, Tameka ‘Tiny’ Cottle, Latocha Scott and Tamika Scott. The So So Def affiliated group disbanded in 1998. –danielle canada
