The 'Real' 'Housewives' of 'Atlanta'
"Image is everything in Atlanta."
"In Atlanta, money and class give you power."
"Everybody wants to be in Atlanta. It's hot!"
These are just a few of the tips I picked up watching the premier of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" last night. It was all news to me, and I've lived in Atlanta my whole life. (Marietta, technically, but if these women — in their 15,000-square-foot mansions in the gated communities of north Georgia — live in Atlanta, then so do I.) I've never had money or class or a cake in the shape of a Louis Vuitton bag, but I've still managed to scrape by. And it's definitely true that Atlanta is hot. Sometimes very hot.
