Ivy Couch of TLC's The Sisterhood

Ivy Couch: Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Ivy moved to Atlanta to attend Spellman College, where she graduated in 2000. She is married to Pastor Mark A. Couch (born September 24, 1974), founder of Emmanuel Tabernacle Church in Atlanta.

Before marrying a preacher, Ivy was a singer/songwriter who worked with a number of successful artists, including the band Xscape, which launched the career of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burrus.

In an early episode of Sisterhood, Ivy's husband Mark gives her a pair of handcuffs, causing her to remark, "People don’t expect a preacher and his wife to have a good sex life."
