The Real Housewives of Atlanta

Lisa, DeShawn, Kim, NeNe, and Sheree are Bravo's new housewives from Atlanta. I caught the premiere and I couldn't help but think, this is going to be one southern mess of a season. Kim, the "black woman in a white womans body" is a riot, she has a hidden identity sugar daddy whom is called, "Big Poppa", whenever she needs something she makes that phone call, and money just magically shows up. You have to see the Cadilac escalade she purchased, she literally wrote a check for $62,000 and drove off the lot. Then there's Shere whom is currently unemployed but is rich due to her boutique in downtown Atlanta, Bella Azul and her divorce settlement, NeNe is married to a rich business man, and the other 2-Lisa and Deshawn are wealthy due to graduating with a Rich Athlete Degree. As a .5 Atlantan, I appreciate Bravo for featuring this great and exciting city. Many African Americans have migrated down there due to the plethora of land, equal opportunities, and comfort.

On the plus side, this show features fabulous yet real women, on the low side, I'm afraid its going to portray black woman as being loud, catty, and ghetto. Watch the video and tell me what you think of this seasons It Woman.

The first episode was good and fairly displayed the rich lifesytle of Atlanta's elite. I knew African Americans lived well there, but a private salon, bowling alley, and buying a $3000 bag with no hesitation! These women live better than the women on any other season.

After people watch this show, I hope they do not call the women gold diggers (a stereotype often thrown onto our African American sisters)because they are doing the same thing the Orange County and New York women are doing ( and that is marrying men with money!).

i give it one more episode before these ATL beauties get out of hand. They already opened the season with NeNe wildin' out at Sheree's party-- cussing up a storm in the midst of everyone. Craziness.
