VH1‘s reality show “Sorority Sisters” may have been pulled from the airwaves and wiped clean of the VH1 website, but the fallout continues as Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. took action against five cast members of the show.
Here are the details…
The backlash is still being felt although VH1 has wiped its slate clean of any evidence online or on television that one of its latest reality shows, “Sorority Sisters” ever existed. On January 13, Delta Sigma Theta‘s Founders’ Day, the sorority’s official website added the names of Lydia Mitchell, Priyanka Banks, MeToya Monroe, Shanna McCormick, and Adrene Ashford to their list of expelled members. This expulsion comes after the show’s Alpha Kappa Alpha cast members April McRae and Joy Hammond were suspended from their sorority.
Expulsion of members of Delta Sigma Theta is much more severe than suspension and is, essentially, a permanent decision in which the expelled members are prohibited from participation in sorority events. According to their website, “all individuals listed…must refrain from wearing any paraphernalia or using any merchandise that includes references to Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., its symbols or logos. Wearing or using Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. paraphernalia is knowingly engaging in fraudulent misrepresentation and impersonation, i.e., conveying that you are a member of the organization.”
