NEW Atlanta Semi-Housewives Hitting The Reality Scene?!

​ ​ ​ ​

What in the swagger jacking hell? There's another reality show coming to Atlanta! It's about 4 black women (plus a white woman) and a black guy/girlfriend who's in the mix (pictured on the end).  Sound familiar? They had a pre-production party last night in Atlanta. Crazy enough, we hear it's being shopped to Bravo and is tentatively called "Real Women of Atlanta". Here's pics and a short snippet about each "cast member":

The show is about women--Jamilah, Regina, Nicole, Cade, and Krista--who do not live off of men or wealthy boyfriends and make money for themselves. The show starts taping this fall with anticipated Spring 2010 air date. This is a mess...

Photographer: Paras Griffin The other Housewives' previews when you read the rest... On tomorrow's new episode of "The Real Housewives of ATL", Shereé meets with Dwight to help put together her upcoming fashion show but the two butt heads when they clearly have different opinions on the aesthetic. Kandi rehearses with her backup dancers for her upcoming solo show and gets nervous when she can't get choreography down. And Kim is on a high from her reunion with Big Poppa, but gets a harsh reality when she goes into the studio to record the rest of "Tardy for the Party" – will she be able to carry the weight of the single without strong vocals?:

mina: These women are not

mina: These women are not living off of a rich husband or ex-husband or waiting for “BIG POPPA” to mail the check, by being someone’s mistress. Really? Cuz Jamilah said she makes 100K a year. You can't go on 15 trips a year when you make 100K. Maybe they are humble, but whoever wrote their bios surely isn't.

I am glad to see five sistas

I am glad to see five sistas doing it for themselves but lets be real if these woman do not bring the DRAMA they will not be on television for long. As inspiring as their stories may be how entertaining is it going to be to watch them go to work. Even the best written sitcoms have drama and twist and turns, hell that's what makes good TV. Let's face it we will all be changing the channel if there is no drama to hold our attention.

Trisha: Why are you hating

Trisha: Why are you hating on these women, they have earned some respect with their hard work and dedication. Let me ask you something, what are you doing that gives you the right to judge? By the way, why the hell does it matter that there is one white chick? Do you think she had it any easier being white in ATL than any other beautiful African American Lady? These women know what they want and go for it! So, if you have an issue, why don’t you get your ass up and make a name for yourself instead of spending your energy kicking those that have put in the work. Don’t Hate!!!!! So someone has to be on a reality show to "have made a name for herself?" Could it maybe be that some of us are tired of these distorted images. Bless your heart.

Its sad that its so many

Its sad that its so many people out here in this world have so much negative to say, but the tongue and fingers are very powerful, this group of women created what they have from the ground up, I was at the Launch Party last night, and they all seemed like a talented independent group of ladies, who want to show the world the up-side of of handling business without being fortunate enough of having a super rich husband, these females did it on their own. I think its what some people need to see, not everyone is a fortunate as the housewives to marry money! I think this will inspire a lot of women out here feeling hopeless, this definitley have my vote.. Haters watch your mouth and fingers!!

Well "Royal flush lady"

Well "Royal flush lady" comment, what are you going to do, should he decide to cut you off and go to the next gold digger? I hope you got some skills or brains to earn your own money. Don't end up flat broke or be looking for the next "Sugar Daddy". With this economy, not too many sugar daddys out there anymore, they are either going broke, looking for a job or some stimulus money / bailout handout!!

Who Drives A PORSHE & Who

Who Drives A PORSHE & Who Drives a Lambo = JEALOUS. debra: I went to the Promotional event at Lamborghini Atlanta for “The Real Women of Atlanta” last night and I had a great time. I got a chance to take a look at the video commentaries at the event, and I was inspired. The cast were very nice, sociable and polite. I did not get any impression that they were stuck up, snooty or thought they were better. Even the guy in the cast, Cyrus was very nice, and he was able to purchase a Lamborghini that very night. The crowd went wild!! So those who are out there hating, don’t be jealous. These ladies are not waiting for “BIG POPPA”. They are “BIG MAMA”, getting paid on their own, by their own efforts. “Atlanta Housewives”, watch out!!The cast for “The Real Women of Atlanta” have worked hard for what they have and they have earned it. BETTER

To all of the people with the

To all of the people with the negative comments, You cannot judge a book by it's cover. Were you at the promotional event last night? Did you meet the cast of "The Real Women of Atlanta"? I met all of them and I LIKE THEM!! It is so refreshing to meet people who have put in "REAL WORK" on their own, who are humble, inspiring AND successful in their own way. These women are not living off of a rich husband or ex-husband or waiting for "BIG POPPA" to mail the check, by being someone's mistress. Being REAL is by putting in the time and sacrifices to gain success. I commend the cast to step forward to tell it like it is, have a good time and share their stories. I am looking forward to seeing this show for sure. Atlanta needs a new show. The Atlanta Housewives show is getting old and tired fast. I wonder what the guy in the cast has to say? They all looked great last night!!!

The Real Women of ATL????? This is pure bull. They look like the broke down version. Everyone is trying to cop a reality show deal. What in the francis is going on???

Give the show a chance. We

Give the show a chance. We look forward to the crazy antics of each participant and their friends. There is bound to be some off camera moments that will make us all laugh and wonder how each them became who they are... Reality tv... pros and cons Pro - real people who have to think on their feet (that can be hard for some...) Con - sometimes the producers force the dialogue Pro - most participants have to think on their feet Con - out of area viewers will generalize about all locals

Lexi: People, please let these ladies do their thing.These women might be the ‘real women’ of Atlanta.They might not represent ‘all’ women of Atlanta but there may be some that can relate.Let’s give it a chance and not be mean about it.No, I’m not a relative or such to any of these women but a little grace will be nice.These women might not be like the other show, loud, boogey, show-offs and definitely fake so-called real women of atlanta. I do agree with Kisha’s comment, why can’t we have a ALL Black Cast! Ok I now I’m going to get blasted for this but it can’t be no worse than what’s going on in the world right now. I agree. Let's give the show a chance first.

♥MWNY♥: Why is it that the other Housewive’s show all have white women and any black show has at least one white girl. No shade to the white girls but I am just wondering. True, that's something we need to ask the producers of those shows. Whether it's TV, videos or live performances, there always need to be white people in the mix. And I'm wondering to myself: why not Asian or Indian or some other race?

Uhmm...struggling to see, based on the bio descriptions, exactly how these women's stories are supposed to be inspirational. Most of them have gone through a divorce and been fired from their job. Okay...and what differentiates them from everyone else?

Joe: I think “Real Women of Atlanta” are the “Bomb”…Jamilah is Hottttt!!!! Krista is sexy as hell… and Shawn Cade is fine as hell… Regina and Nicole are off the chain… So Atlanta and the Bravo channel get ready… because this show is about to blow up. and I admire the women for stepping up to put themselves on the line to set another example… of “Real Women of Atlanta”.And I think that Jamilah was very courageous to step out on faith and strive to make something good happen… So all the haters…. you’re all just motivators… that will push these women and this show over the top and beyond!!!!!!! Dwight is that you?????????

Kandi is crazy 2 be serious about that wack song Even kim is aware her voice is wack.I don't like kim & she is a bad role model 4 her kids. Her whole well being revolves around a Married man who she actually expects will be with her forever & put a ring on it.I respect her honesty But I would be ashamed as a woman & mother 2 even tell some1 about such a pathetic situation like that.
