Paula White is the magic woman who perhaps coined the word televangelist. Honestly guys, for a pastor she has amassed quite a big sum of $5 million. What with all those poor priests lining Mc Donald’s for breakfast!
For a teenage mom and an ex-janitor, I would say she turned out pretty damn well! Most of White’s money comes from her show Paula White Today on Trinity Broadcast Network. She has also published ten books. The royalty money from these books must be quite an amount!And not to mention all the appearances she makes on TV for which she charges shit loads.
How She Earns Her Moolah
Let’s face it people, in the days when TV is bible (because people are not reading the bible, eh?) anyone with a TV show is making loads of cash. It couldn’t be truer for White. Else, how does one explain Paula’s plush $2.1 million home on Bayshore Boulevard?
Not just that, this pastor also owns a condo in Trump Tower in New York, which is worth $3.5 million. And she often gives away Bentleys as birthday gifts. Whoa, now that’s what we call putting your money where the mouth is!
She was recently in news for her third marriage to Jonathan Cain, keyboard player from the rock band Journey. She has been formerly married. Her husband was Randy white, with who she founded the South Tampa Christian Centre, which is now famously known as the Without Walls Central Church.
White stirred up controversy not very far back in the past for dressing up as Red Riding Hood on Halloween. Many of her “fans” criticised her for celebrating “Satan’s Day”. C’mon people! Lighten up. Can’t pastors have some fun with costume? And, did we mention that her husband Cain was dressed up as the Big Bad Wolf. Err… that was a bit too much coming from a pastor!
Did you know that White was not really a Christian? She took to Christianity in the mid-80s and has since helped people face their life problems with faith. Her religion is known as Nondenominational Christianity. Quite a mouthful that!
