Tammy Faye Plugs New Documentary
Aug. 14, 2000
ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) _ This documentary is a must-see, at least in the eyes of Tammy Faye Bakker-Messner.
The former wife of fallen televanglist Jim Bakker said the new documentary, ``The Eyes of Tammy Faye,'' which shows the highs and lows of her public life, treats her right.
``It's a very fair portrayal,'' she told Friday's edition of The Herald of Rock Hill from her home in Matthews, N.C.
``It's a little irreverent at times,'' but that's OK, she said. ``That's been my life. I've had black places and wonderful light places.''
The 79-minute film delves into the rise and fall of Tammy Faye and Jim Bakker's Praise The Lord ministry.
Of the good reviews she's hearing, Bakker-Messner said, ``I'm the most shocked of anybody. I thought after 12 years, people would be sick of this story.''
