Comments (16)

ChilliFrom The Root: Remember the ''real'' housewife named Sheree? Whose only claim to fame is that she was once married to a professional football player? Remember how she yanked housewife Kim's blond wig and called her white trash outside of a fashionable Atlanta restaurant? (Kim, the sole Caucasian Atlanta ''housewife'' whose married lover's checks allow her to pay $3,000 on a regular basis to get the fat rolled from her thighs.)

Across the reality-television spectrum, there have always been women like Sheree and her ''friends'' on Bravo TV's 'Real Housewives of Atlanta': catty, materialistic, self-absorbed. But are television executives really only interested in black women when we're acting a fool? And, more importantly, are we really only interested in seeing ourselves portrayed in this light?
