The Real Housewives of Atlanta premiered on Bravo on October 7, 2008 as the third installment of The Real Housewives franchise. The series delves into the personal and professional lives of several women from Atlanta's social elite. In typical Housewives fashion, the women struggle to balance families, demanding careers and glamorous (and often drama-filled) social calendars.
Set in one of the hottest entertainment hubs in the country, RHOA, as it is affectionately abbreviated, is unique within the Real Housewives franchise. Currently, it is the highest-rated installment in the franchise as well as the most-watched series airing on Bravo. It's only still-standing original cast member, NeNe Leakes, is reportedly the highest paid Housewife.
Past and present cast members have boasted larger-than-life personalities with egos to match, helping launch The Real Housewives of Atlanta to its continued success and resulting in several spin-offs including The Kandi Factory, Don't Be Tardy and I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding.
