4 Ways That Bishop Noel Jones Has Proven Why He Won’t Marry Loretta – Preacher’s of LA

Dating & Relationships / Entertainment & Celebrities / September 3, 2014

The relationship drama on ‘Preacher’s of LA’ is just about as typical as any daytime soap opera but with a bit of self-righteousness and a whole lot of judging added to it. The relationship between Bishop Noel Jones and Loretta is one that seems to be the center of conversation on the show and for good reason.  Bishop Noel Jones and Loretta have been in a 16 year relationship, are business partners and to be very honest, she “acts” as his wife…almost “First Lady” but doesn’t have the ring or the title. On Season One of Preacher’s of LA, there were several “masked” reasons, why Bishop Noel Jones wouldn’t marry Loretta but in Season Two, those reasons seems to slap you in the face and for the love of God, I don’t understand why a woman, as beautiful as Loretta, would SETTLE for being a girlfriend for 16 years but play the role of a wife. Here’s why Bishop Noels Jones won’t marry Loretta, as observed in Season Two:

He Doesn’t Have Her Back

In the episode, “”Truth Be Told,” Bishop Jones and Loretta are invited to dinner with Ron Gibson and Lady Lavette. As they talk about whether or not Ron Gibson will be a part of the crusade, Bishop Jones tells Loretta, “Ron’s got a problem with YOU.” Loretta responds, “Yeah, I think Ron and Lavette have a problem with both of US.” He goes on to say that nobody has a problem with him and her response is,

“Anytime somebody has a problem with me, they have a problem with you !”  

Hello! That’s the way it is supposed to be in a relationship.  It’s not a one-sided situation, however, Bishop Jones seems to see himself and Loretta as separate and not one, as you would be in a relationship. Loretta says that Bishop Jones “hates conflict and confrontation and I usually handle that for him.” REALLY, He is a grown as man, who has you fighting his battles but he won’t fight for YOU?

He Always Calls Her His “Friend”

4 Ways That Bishop Noel Jones Has Proven Why He Won't Marry Loretta - Preacher's of LA

Over dinner, as the conversation turns to Bishop Jones and Loretta’s “relationship,” as it usually does when Ron Gibson is around, he asks if they are in a relationship and Loretta responds, “Yes.” Ron Gibson goes on to say that he can not agree to work with them if they are fornicating and said that he and the world needs to know what their relationship status is and Bishop Jones says,

“It’s real simple. We’re friends.”

Loretta seems to have a look on her face like, “Did he really just say that?”

He Allows Her Character To Be Trashed

As Loretta is going in on Ron Gibson and Lady Lavette, Bishop Jones is just sitting back and not saying a word.  Is it that he wants her to “handle it” like she always does or is it that he seems to really think that The Gibson’s don’t have a problem with him and Loretta? The total disrespect came in was when Ron Gibson said in response to Loretta going in, “That’s probably why you’re not married!” BUT WAIT!!! Ron Gibson, goes on to say…

“I see potential in this relationship but if Loretta keeps trying to be feisty and trying to control him and act like a Jazebel, you will NEVER get this brother!”  

Again, Bishop Jones had the opportunity to say, “Hold Up, man! You don’t speak to her like that.” Of course, he didn’t say a word!

He Doesn’t Consider Her Feelings

In the ‘Preacher’s of LA’ aftershow, Loretta said,

To be honest, my perspective of marriage has changed from the time I met him until where we are now. I’m happy with the way things are now, but if he proposed to me I would accept.

While Bishop Jones insists that he had no idea that Loretta felt that way, I have to call, “Bullshit!”  How can a man be with a woman for 16 years and not know that she wants to marry you.  The problem is that Loretta allowed him to get comfortable in the “relationship” or “friendship” as Noel Jones will have you believe and he has not been required to stand up for her when necessary, hold her down when the situation presents itself or make her a wife after 16 years.  How many more years will Loretta wait for Bishop Jones to marry her? Hopefully, it won’t be another 16 years!

    Many religions believe you cannot remarry if your former spouse us alive both Loretta and Noel jones have been married so they cannot marry

I saw the aftershow.Loretta was explaining to Bishop Jones why she didn’t express her true feelings toward him. I wish Pastor Gibson had kept quiet so she could finish her train of thought. But when they asked her to continue there was a long pause, because she got emotiona. What did you make of that?

    on September 3, 2014

    I didn’t see the after show but heard about it. I believe that she loves him. Why else would she put up with that for so long? It’s just sad that she is so caught up that she can’t see it for what it is…nothing

on September 3, 2014

I had so much respect for Bishop Jones before this show but I believe her when she says she “handles” his confrontations remember him pre-warning her and actually telling her to havdle it if they come at their “friendship”. She believes the pillow talk and thinks he’ll come around but I’d love to know when she’ll get all the way fed up.

    on September 3, 2014

    I believe her, too. I think the problem is that she is handling too much for a man that isn’t her husband.

    on September 3, 2014

    She is the epitome of how you waste your time by playing the wife when you aren’t the wife!!

on September 3, 2014

I agree with EVERYTHING you’ve said.

From first glance you would assume that Ms Loretta is a confident woman, but if the truth be told, that relationship seems like one of convenience. He uses her as his attack dog. Why she has held on to this man for 16 years is beyond me.

He is either promising her something off camera that demands this kind of loyalty or just a very insecure woman. Whether she wants to admit it or not, it’s an unhealthy relationship. She’s the kind of personality that willingly opts to be the ‘other woman’ even after the man gets married. He doesn’t respect her, if he did he would defend her. He has absolutely nothing vested in her emotionally.

She’s doing too many wife duties without wife benefits.

    on September 3, 2014

    He has to be promising her something or she probably feels as if they are establishing themselves as a couple, ie. the resturant. She has to wake up and realize that there will never be anything there. She has wasted more than enough time on him. It;s tiem to walk away.

      on September 3, 2014

      And that’s exactly why she needs to take a break because that sounds like an underhanded way to control someone. Just give them enough to keep them coming back. I’ve seen people go crazy because of it. (Thinking of one person in particular)

        on September 3, 2014

        I totally agree. That’s when folks snap but you can tell someone as much as you want to but they won’t make a change until they are ready.

    on November 20, 2014

    well the on good thing i guess she is getting out of this now is FAME!!

on September 5, 2014

It’s just real life shit…. We women will settle for half of the empire with the thoughts of one day getting the whole thing… And as long as we all continue to do this it sets up the foundation of a man to continue to do as such…. Why Commit whole heartedlt when I can have my cake n eat it too… My post is similar to this… WHY DO WE SET THE PACE OF OUR OWN TREATMENT???

    on September 12, 2014

    Amen! I agree but so many women believe that by “showing” what they can do for a man will make them want to marry them. So wrong.

on April 17, 2015

Um hello why did my remark get deleted? Wtf its true gay men call women fish! Im in disbelief this term is used toward her now. Hmph wonder she ain’t wifey he probly don’t like gals she just a “coverup”!

I think all this people and churches are confused because the God’s law and the scripture are been nationalised and become American culture.

on September 6, 2017

You know, i have been trying to figure out Loretta? What was her Childhood like? Teenage? Adult Life? I’ve been looking for where this “low self esteem” comes from? Where “self” no longer deserved anything? Does anyone know?

Let's Talk! I want to know what you think?
