The Real Housewives of Atlanta

Follows the format of its predecessors, revolving around women in the Atlanta metropolitan area juggling their home, social and business lives.

The series is an up-close and personal look at a group of fabulous women from Atlanta's social elite – from Grammy-Award winners to aspiring singers, power brokers to super models - as they juggle their burgeoning careers and busy home lives amidst the whirl of the south's hottest city.

Atlanta has become one of the hottest entertainment hubs in America, and the Housewives are taking their individual talents to new heights in search of stardom.

These driven and ambitious women prove that they're not just housewives, but entrepreneurs, doting mothers and feisty southern women.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta are:

DeShawn Snow

Snow and her husband Eric, captain of the Cleveland Cavaliers, recently moved to their dream home in Alpharetta, GA.

Mother to three boys - nine-year-old EJ, six-year-old Darius and five-year-old Jarren - Snow is an active member of the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.

She exercises her faith by running The DeShawn Snow Foundation, a non-profit organisation focused on improving self-esteem in teenage girls.

She is a regular on the Atlanta social circuit and extremely active in local philanthropy, sitting on the board of three different charities, all while expertly juggling her busy social calendar with being an NBA wife and keeping up with her boys.

Kim Zolciak

Zolciak lives in an exclusive gated townhouse community in Duluth, GA with her two children, 11-year-old Brielle and six-year-old Ariana.

Zolciak is single, but happily dating with hopes to marry again in the near future.

She also has her sights set on fame in the music business as a country singer, and is currently working with Grammy award-winning mega-producer Dallas Austin and will begin recording an album later this year.

A staple on the Atlanta scene, Zolciak balances life as a single mom with a vivacious social life.

Lisa Wu Hartwell

Hartwell, a resident of a luxurious country club community in Duluth, GA, is a busy career woman who wears many hats - she owns her own real estate firm, Hartwell & Associates, a jewelry line called Wu Girls, a baby clothing line, Hart 2 Hart Baby, and juggles a budding acting, modeling and writing career.

She's a devoted wife to her husband, NFL player Ed Hartwell, and their three children 13-year-old Jordan, ten-year-old Justin and one-year-old EJ.

When she's not running one of her many businesses or running after the kids, Hartwell is very active in Atlanta's social scene.

NeNe Leakes

Leakes is an active member of Atlanta society.

She resides in the upscale Sugarloaf area of Atlanta with her husband Gregg, a successful real estate investor and business consultant, and their two sons, 18-year-old Brice and nine-year-old Brentt.

Leakes donates her time to various foundations and is the founder of The Twisted Hearts Foundation, which brings awareness to domestic violence against women.

Never one to sit still, the outspoken social butterfly also hopes to open a luxury boutique hotel in the very near future.

Sheree Whitfield

Single socialite Whitfield, a resident of the exclusive Sandy Springs area of Atlanta, juggles her busy home life with a packed social calendar.

She is a busy working mother to three children - Tierra, Kairo and Kaleigh.

Whitfield prides herself on her fashion sense, and owned her own upscale clothing boutique - Bella Azul - for years before closing up shop to focus on her next business venture, a clothing line called She by Sheree.
