Taylor Coleman was depicted as a bit of a party girl on season 1 of Lifetime’s “Preachers’ Daughters,” but she said viewers will get a different view of her this time around.
Season 2 of the hit reality show premieres Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST, and Taylor, 19, told Sister 2 Sister that she’s matured.
“You’ll get more in-depth with me,” she said. “I didn’t really notice how big a difference a year makes until watching the show. You’ll see with season 2. I still have more growing up to do. I’m learning from every mistake and every experience that I have.”
Taylor’s season 2 storyline also focuses on her father’s recurring health problems. “He has kidney issues. I’m seeing him go through that. Certain things like that have been very stressful,” said Taylor who said partying keeps her mind off of those serious issues.
As a PK [preachers’ kid], she realizes that some people hold her to a higher standard, but Taylor said she can’t be concerned about what other people think about her behavior.
“All have sinned and come short of God’s glory,” she said quoting Scripture. “A lot of people try to put a thing on the church that we have to be holy, holy and perfect… We’re trying to live for God and we have the faith.”
Season 1 daughter Kolby Koloff returns to the show that welcomes two new PKs: Megan Cassidy and Tori Elliott.
“Everyone is different,” she said addressing the stereotype of wild child preachers’ kids. “Everyone takes to certain situations in a certain way.”
Luckily for Taylor, her parents and church family decided to embrace her after season 1, instead of passing judgment on her partying, sneaking around with boys and breaking her parents’ rules.
“My church family has been very supportive which I’m very grateful for,” she said. “I didn’t know that they were going to support me that way. It was a great surprise.”
As for the critics, Taylor doesn’t spend much time thinking about them.
“Everyone has their opinion. Everyone has freedom of speech…just keep pushing on,” she said.
How has “Preachers’ Daughters” changed her relationship with her parents. Taylor shares in the April 2014 issue of Sister 2 Sister.
