Expanding on the success of the original hit series The Real Housewives of Orange County and the watercooler sensation The Real Housewives of New York City, Bravo is heading South for its newest installment, The Real Housewives of Atlanta. An up-close and personal look at life in Hotlanta, The Real Housewives of Atlanta follows five glamorous Southern belles -- DeShawn, Kim, Lisa, NeNe, and Sheree -- as they balance motherhood, demanding careers and a fast-paced social calendar, and shows what life is like in the most exclusive areas of Atlanta. These driven and ambitious women prove that they're not just "housewives," but entrepreneurs, doting mothers and classy Southern women.
In the first-season finale, Sheree, humbled by her failed fashion show, seeks advice from designer and "Project Runway" contestant Mychael Knight. On the sports page: Ed returns to the NFL and Eric considers retiring from the NBA. It all culminates with the housewives congregating for a tasty but testy dinner.
