'ATL Housewife' DeShawn lets go, and lets God

Monday, January 26, 2009

DeShawn Snow has taken the news that she's no longer "Atlanta Housewife" material in stride, devoting more of herself to her DeShawn Snow Foundation and her church, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia.
The fact that DeShawn turned to God after the show throws an interesting light on the other "Atlanta Housewives". What was it about the others that allowed them to make the cut for Season 2? Are the others not spiritual people as well? Or is DeShawn the only angel on the show? From her web site (which has been redesigned recently) she offers that she's had a reawakening since the show.
Rumors that she was the most boring personality in reality show history or that she refused to even try to work out/exercise may not be true, but what is true is that she went through some changes during Season 1.
The biggest was the retirement-due-to-injury of her husband NBA player Eric Snow. Officlally, the Cleveland Cavaliers say he has arthritic-related symptoms in his left knee and has retired. Unofficially he is serving as an assistant coach with the team and may join the staff on a permenent basis this year.
The salary change would be dramatic. After his last contract, in which Snow will be paid $7 million this year, a novice assistant coach will likely drop down to about $400,000 to $500,000. Not small change by any imagination, but enough evidently to get DeShawn to look deeper at her life and where it was going. Below is a statement on her site where she clues the world in on her thought process:

Well, there you have it. Not some anticlimatic reason, but just a simple DeShawn realization. In any event, she's still an ATL housewife, just without the show.

I was gonna blog about this as well. My wondering was along the same lines as yours: why exactly would DeShawn be the one to go?

I don't really agree that she was "boring" and I couldn't believe that the execs said she was too "human" or something like that. Why can't black women, or women in general, exist in a reality tv setting without drama that involves them fighting over a man, showing their asses, or just being flat out ignorant? Why isn't someone like DeShawn marketable? Would Lisa have also been asked to leave had she not had inner drama with Keith, or had words with Kim??
