I’ve been catching up on The Real Housewives of Atlanta on YouTube. I love it I love it I love it. I really enjoy watching the Bravo TV Housewife series. My favourite city is New York closely followed by Atlanta then the original Orange County. I could really do without the others Miami, Beverley Hills and although Danielle & Theresa are entertaining, New Jersey should never have been opened up to the public.
Now, over here in the UK we get almost all the Real Housewives on Sky/ Cable etc except for … thats right you guessed it the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Thank God for YouTuber Brandon7837 or I would be missing out. I see a lot of comments on how Ghetto these women are & for the most part I totally agree but thats what makes the show so watchable. Just like NY & the OC – ALL these bitches are CRAZY; thats what i love about the shows…. As Luanne sings “Money CAN’T buy you class”
As a British Afro-Caribbean woman I must say it is very disappointing to see the lack of black women on British TV. It would be wonderful if one of these reality shows would show the true diversity that i see & feel in London. Perhaps its too much to expect that they show some intelligent, successful happy black women but I’ll settle for any type. People from other countries watching TOWIE, Made in Chelsea, Scousewives etc must think that 1. There aren’t many black people in the UK or 2. The different nationalities DO NOT mix.
I know it’s not just me that notices this type of discrimination on British TV, my close group of friends practically spans the globe as far as heritage goes but the love isn’t reserved for my Jamaican sisters. I keep thinking that everyone got the memo that skin colour is just that & that alone. Even within the same ethnic groups the colour of our skin is varied …people get over it!!
Ghetto comes in all shades; and so does dignity & class.
To any television producers out there; please take a chance “Black can & does sell”
