Why Real Housewives Of Atlanta Are Not Real Housewives At All

By January 30, 2013

Follow me on:

RHOA is not a show about portraying inspiring successful African American women -- it is about selling angry women -- angry black women and I find the extremely stereotypical and offensive. If you can watch the show and value you it for entertainment; a spoof on real life, and don't buy into the bull... about women. then enjoy. But I am concerned that reviewers may follow these women and idolize them, or worse -- think that what the show portrays is typical of life in Atlanta and the role today's black female entrepreneurs play in society.

Our women of color in business are not walking stereotypes, prone to constant drama, and the vast majority of successful business women, regardless or race, don't get reality shows to show what "real" actually is. The breaks most business women get in life are hard earned and are accompanied with better control over what comes out of their mouths.

Why RHOA Are Not Real Housewives - More about why, by definition, RHOA cast members are not housewives.

Their Real Professions - All RHOA cast members have businesses, ventures, and/or careers outside of their acting careers, which yes, does count as work, and the definition of a housewife is someone who does not work outside the home.

Ages, Birth Dates and Birth Places - Ever wonder how old the cast members of RHOA are?  Hint:  Nene is the oldest and Porsha is the youngest star on the show.

Martial Status and Children - Curious who is married, divorced, separated, or engaged? Can't keep up with their children? Here are the family "stats" for the major current and former cast members of Real Housewives of Atlanta.
