"God Warrior" Marguerite Perrin returning to Fox's 'Trading Spouses'
By Christopher Rocchio, 01/02/2007
She may have lost more than 90 pounds, but don't let the slim exterior fool you.
Self-proclaimed "God Warrior" Marguerite Perrin will return to Fox's Trading Spouses: Meet Your New Mommy in a special two-part episode airing Friday, January 19 and Friday, January 26 at 9PM ET/PT. Perrin appeared on the show last season when she traded homes with a New Age humanist from Boxborough, MA and didn't waste much time trying to convert her new family to Christianity. After ranting against the forces of the "dark side," Perrin eventually took the $50,000 prize she originally called "tainted" and used it for gastric bypass surgery, which helped her lose 94 pounds.
This season, Perrin will be living in the St. Petersburg, FL home of Abasi Malone and LaToya Brown, who are so environmentally conscious they recycle rain and so politically active that Malone hosts a talk show that addresses issues in the African American community. Brown homeschools the couple's seven-year-old daughter while Malone drives a taxi and delivers newspapers.
Meanwhile, Perrin still resides in Ponchatoula, LA with her husband Barry, daughters Ashley and Brooke and granddaughter Abigail, as the family believes in traditional southern hospitality while running a thriving dance studio. Needless to say, it doesn't take too long for the traded spouse to start trading verbal jabs with Malone over her views on race, social justice and politics.
