**Just to let you know there is no pictures of Melissa Scott on this blog and no links to pictures of Melissa Scott when she was Barbi Bridges………
Friday Night I was flipping channels, watching Animal Planets E-Vets and Intervention…
and stumbled across a woman preaching out of Genesis 4, the genealogy’s of Cain and Abel.
She was discussing/pondering how they could have lived for 900+ years.
She is a beautiful woman, young, long flowing hair, clerical collar and over-sized jacket, black slacks and flat shoes, she had many charts and 3 white boards which she wrote all over. Her dress was very interesting to me, she covered up pretty much all of her, making her very generic and asexual. Obviously not wanting the focus on her. I didn’t know why then….

I was flipping the TV dial one restless night and I found a sermon by pastor Melissa Scott, a pretty, painted lady with big, 1987 hair and a priest’s collar. She had something of Gene’s piercing intelligence and conviction, along with his borderline lunacy and seemingly unbounded contempt for the audience. I imagined she was the good doctor’s daughter, but the truth was much more exotic. Melissa Scott is Gene’s widow: 39 years younger and a hell of a lot prettier than her late hubby, but just as full of holy piss and vinegar. Although there is still some uncertainty on the matter, various accounts have pegged her as a former porn star who worked under the name Barbi Bridges. (“I am the chiefest of sinners,” she has said. “Whatever you’ve heard about me, I’m worse!”) Apparently Gene’s fans first noticed her as one of the chippies in his backyard chorus line, but she so charmed the Doc that eventually the other girls vanished from the Scott telecasts, replaced by footage of Gene and Melissa riding some magnificent horses around the palatial grounds of the Scott estate. Soon she was joining him onstage at the University Cathedral for the Sunday sermons, often taking the mike to warble a few hymns. According to various sources, Gene actually proposed to Melissa on the air.
Unfortunately I did see some of her earlier pictures on the net, and there is no doubt, its her.
I found a video of Gene Scott ‘preaching’
Not a very good example of Godly preaching in the first 1 minute.
This is either an awesome Godly testament of what He, The Living Lord, can do in a person,
just another anti-christ type of evangelical TV preacher.
Comments please. Has anyone heard of her? or him?
UPDATE on 10/26/2009: I found an article in Marie Claire about the Pastor, it is here
