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.

Sexual Content

Some strong sexual innuendo. Some of the women wear tight-fitting, chest-revealing clothes. A birthday party features pole dancing.


The women argue, shout, and wag fingers in one another's faces.


Audible language includes words like "bitch" (both spoken and written out in text messages). Stronger words like "f--k" are bleeped.

Social Behavior

The show focuses on women who are driven by wealth, status, and materialism. Deals with issues like divorce, single motherhood, and illegitimacy.


Prominently shows lots of high-end brands like Versace, Dior, Jimmy Choo, and Cadillac. Lisa Wu's various clothing and fashion lines -- including Wu girls and Hart 2 Hart Baby -- and Sheree's fashion line, She by Sheree, are also prominently featured. The women are very concerned with material wealth and the status that it brings them.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Frequent consumption of alcohol (wine, champagne, mixed drinks).
