Former Polygamist Stars In New Reality Series
INSIDE EDITION spoke to Flora Jessop, a former polygamist who is starring in a new TLC series about helping families escape the religion.
TLC is premiering a new series on Tuesday night, Escaping the Prophet. In the show, Flora Jessop, a former member of a Warren Jeffs polygamist church helps other families escape.
She told INSIDE EDITION, "You have to walk away from your entire family, your community, your church, your home, everything you know. Your family will turn their backs on you and you are dead to them."
Flora says it isn't easy helping girls, who have been indoctrinated to think she's the enemy.
She said, "Once you've made the decision, it's easy to leave. What's hard is building a life after you get out."
