Don’t Miss Lifetime’s Ripped From The Headlines Thrillers

Lifetime is kicking off 2023 with a quartet of Ripped From The Headlines movies. Don’t miss Gwen Shamblin: Starving For Salvation. This movie stars Jennifer Grey (Dirty DancingGrey’s Anatomy) and Vincent Walsh (Billy The KidPlayed).

Gwen Shamblin Lara (Grey) was a rare female Christian leader, whose core philosophy was about being thin. She founded the Remnant Fellowship Church and the Weigh Down Workshop in Tennessee. Despite her petite frame, her big blonde hair and powerful personality made her look invincible.

As she became wealthier, the high-profile religious leader became more demanding. In addition, she demanded that church members who were at religious odds with family members who did not belong to her church become estranged from them. Most of all, she was like a barracuda! Moreover, any church member who left the church was threatened with legal action.

However, her reign ended tragically in May 2021. Her husband Joe (Walsh) flew a plane that crashed not long after they took off. Therefore, this killed Gwen, Joe, their son-in-law, and four other church members.

Lastly, this movie will premiere on Saturday, February 4, at 8 p.m., Eastern, on Lifetime.
