'Real Housewives of Atlanta' Premieres Tonight
The franchise moves towards the South, with BravoTV taking its audiences for a look at the posh lives of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.  Strong female minds continue the drama from Orange County and New York, and bring us a new perspective from the largest metropolitan city of Georgia.   Five glamorous Southern belles are featured, and we'll be getting to know DeShawn, Kim, Lisa, NeNe and Sheree throughout the show's run. 

The series premiere will first be giving us a sneak peek into the lifestyle of DeShawn, the wife of professional basketball player Eric Snow of the Cleveland Cavaliers.  For the very first time, DeShawn sees her custom built mansion and marvels in it.  Meanwhile, Lisa the real estate maven attempts to juggle her family life and her numerous careers.   Busy with her vocations, she also manages a jewelry line, a baby clothing line, and dabbles in acting, modeling and writing as well. It seems like it needs a firm hand to administer all of this, and we might just learn a thing or two from Lisa's ways.

Also on the first episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the recently divorced Sheree plans a birthday party at her estate.  To celebrate her new life, she invites the other housewives to have some fun.  However, interpersonal troubles can't seem to be avoided as the ladies have to confront something of the sort. 

Developing on the success of The Real Housewives of Orange County and The Real Housewives of New York, the Atlanta-based series will be showing how these unique ladies try to achieve balance in their lives.   They have motherhood to deal with, careers to maintain, and a packed social calendar to keep up.   DeShawn, Kim, Lisa, Nene and Sheree will be seizing the attention of fans, as they share their experiences in Atlanta's most exclusive areas. 

Driven and ambitious, these ladies are out to prove that they're not just housewives, but women who can tackle any role – from being an entrepreneur to being a doting mother.  There's no question that these classy Southern women will confirm just how influential a female can be in the world today, especially so if they're banded together. 

The Real Housewives of Atlanta
premieres tonight, October 7, on BravoTV at 9pm.
