Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this latest installment of the Real Housewives franchise -- which follows the lives of five wealthy Atlanta socialites -- is more of the same. Like their counterparts in Orange County and New York, these women place great importance on wealth, social status, and material goods. Although the show deals with some of their personal problems (divorce, single motherhood) the series primarily focuses on their obsession with staying at the top of the city's social ladder. Not surprisingly, lots of high-end name brands are prominently featured. Also expect catty behavior, salty language (the strongest words are bleeped), sexual innuendo, and plenty of drinking.
