“Nene Leakes: one of Fall TV’s 15 Stars to Watch”

“I can’t wait for ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ premiering on Bravo in October. It’s going to be soapy, glamorous – and a little messy.”
– Bridget Smith, host of “Great Day S.A.”, San Antonio, TX

“It appears a theme has emerged for this season: think big. As in, over the top! Everything about the show – the budgets, the braggadocio and the bling – is outsized and tantalizing.”

“The opening monologue, voiced by all of the featured women, highlighted what will set this show apart from its New York and California predecessors: ‘Atlanta is a mecca for wealthy African Americans. Nowhere else is there an elite society of African Americans going to galas, fashion shows, and living in luxury gated communities. Atlanta is the black Hollywood.'”
– Jon Caramanica, Los Angeles Times

“Southern sass makes the new Housewives spin-off franchise the juiciest yet.”
– InTouch
