Are the Housewives Real?

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" was a huge hit for Bravo and it was also our latest guilty pleasure.

Lisa, Sheree, NeNe, DeShawn and Kim shocked and entertained us this season. Some of their antics were so over the top -- like when NeNe sought a paternity test for her own father and Sheree had a fashion show without any clothes -- we started to wonder what exactly is real about these housewives.

Luckily, Yahoo sorted through the online rumors to try to find some truth about our fave southern belles.

Sheree Whitfield


This sassy and self-proclaimed classy former NFL wife is a mother of two or three. While Sheree has two children with ex-NFL star Bob Whitfield, bloggers say she also has a 23-year-old daughter who she has reportedly referred to as a "friend."
Signature quote: "People are intimidated by my success."

Nene Leakes


The showy and boisterous wine aficianado is rumored to have participated in the show to further an acting career, even though she claims her involvement was to promote her domestic violence foundation, Twisted Hearts. Other rumors say she is a former "dancer."
Signature quote: "I don't keep up with the Joneses, I am the Joneses."

Kim Zolciak


The voluptuous divorced mother of two aspires to be a country sensation (whether or not she has the voice). Eyebrows were raised when Kim claimed to be 29, but bloggers confirmed with the DMV that Kim is a year shy of 30. Kim has a mystery sugar daddy who she calls "Big Poppa." Bloggers think they have uncovered his identity as being a married commercial real estate developer known throughout Atlanta.
Signature quote: "In Atlanta, money and class do give you power."

Lisa Wu Hartwell


This NFL wife and new mom is probably the housewife with the most sordid past. Lisa's ex-husband is R&B star Keith Sweat. According to the blogs, she has two kids with him who are not featured on the show, so it's unclear who has custody of them. The self-proclaimed expert businesswoman actually filed for bankruptcy in 2007. She's also rumored to have used other names in the past such as Sharon Millette Wu, Sharon Lisa Sweat, and Lisa Wu Sweat. Lisa apparently got into a huge fight with Kim, who now allegedly has a restraining order against her costar
Signature quote: "If it doesn't make me money, I don't do it."

Deshawn Snow


The NBA wife and mother of three is new to Atlanta. She claims never to have seen her 15,000-square-foot mega-mansion before she walked into the decorated home after it was finished. This housewife seems to have the cleanest past.
Signature quote: "I always knew I was destined for greatness."

Do you think you can tell fact from fiction when it comes to lives of the "The Real Housewives of Atlanta?"

I’ve been born into the industry with my parents functioning inside fashion trade. I’ve realized the market is quite disjointed so I’m at the moment earning a living using a internet site to deliver everyone collectively.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

Most people, when they criticize, whether they like it or hate it, they’re talking about product. That’s not art, that’s the result of art. Art, to whatever degree we can get a handle on (I’m not sure that we really can) is a process. It begins in the heart and the mind with the eyes and hands.
