Lisa Ling Shows Us What Our Neighbors Are Really Up To
You see them every day, pulling out of the driveway in their cars, mowing the lawn, playing with their kids. At night, you see their shadows passing behind the drawn blinds of their homes. They're your neighbors, and you think you have a pretty good idea of what they're all about.
But as Lisa Ling reminds us in her OWN documentary show, we never know what goes on behind their closed doors. Take the couples in this weekend's episode of Our America (it's the Season 2 premiere). One middle-aged husband, Patrick, wears spectacles and golf shirts, and like many men his age, he enjoys photography. His favorite subject these days is his 50-year old wife, Ciara, who dresses up in sheer wraps and Lucite stripper shoes---and then takes everything off (except for the stilettos, that is). Patrick and Ciara are amateur pornographers, and when they're not relaxing by the pool, they're setting up XXX-rated film shoots on the patio and in the boudoir and charging Internet viewers money to watch them. Check out this clip to learn more about the unconventional business that is attracting thousands of unlikely entrepreneurs, and also to get a peek at Ciara's costume closet (regardless of how you feel about her day job, you'll no doubt envy her dressing space):
In future episodes, Ling will examine other American subcultures, like military families dealing with PTSD, and the sex traffickers-next-door (it's not just a big-city problem). After getting a peek into these people's lives, you'll have a hard time talking to your neighbors without looking for clues about their secret life (what's up with all those Diapers.com deliveries, anyway?).
Season 2 of Our America with Lisa Ling premieres Sunday, October 16, at 10/9c on OWN
