Joey Mead & Transgender Angelina King Star In A TLC Reality Show That Reveals The Why's And Wherefore's Of Their Very Unconventional Marriage

MODEL JOEY MEAD and her unusual relationship with Angelina King is something for the books. When they got married, Angelina was still a man named Angelo. He later on transitioned to be a transgender and came out looking like a woman. This could have been a ground for annulment, but Joey chose to stand by her “man”, so to speak, supporting him, er, her all the way, for better or for worse, for richer or poorer, whether you’re a man or a woman. It’s most certainly far from the way we traditionally view the union called marriage.

TLC must have seen how interesting their unusual relationship can be for the public so now, they have their own reality show, “The Kings”, that aims to answer questions on the minds of nosey viewers as to how they co-exist as no longer husband and wife but as wife and wife.

Their kind of setup might shock diehard heteros and those who consider themselves as moral guardians of our society, but their honest confessions and candid revelations in the show will hopefully help viewers comprehend more what makes them tick, what makes their unique and extraordinary love affair work. The show is a really big help to the LGBT relationships in making people understand the dynamics of their kind of relationships.

 Joey and Angelina open up their hearts to share their most private feelings for non-gay people to understand their plight better, eliciting sympathy in the process. They are aware that there will always be haters who’d continue to bash them and even call their unconventional relationship a form of perversion, but it seems they’re ready for that and take everything in good stride.

Will they eventually be accepted by society as a whole? That remains to be seen. But it is a big help, of course, that Angelina comes from the wealthy King family who owns several big businesses, so they don’t have any financial problems at all, unlike parlorista gays and other less fortunate ones for whom earning a living is as much as a priority as maintaining a more meaningful gay relationship.
