January 3, 2018 - WAGS Atlanta on E! cast members Hope Wiseman, Kierra Douglas, and Ariel Anderson sat down with WAGS Redefined founder LeShonda Martin over the holiday break to talk all things real behind reality tv.
I had the opportunity to interview three of the ladies from E!'s newest show WAGS Atlanta: Kierra Douglas, Ariel Anderson, and Hope Wiseman. The show premieres on E! Network tonight at 10/9c. Atlanta makes city number three for the WAGS franchise, following WAGS LA (premiered August 2015) and WAGS Miami (premiered October 2016).
In case you're about to judge...DON'T! Because it's 2018 and ain't nobody got time for that. I can't speak for all WAGS, but I enjoyed my time with Hope, Ariel, and Kierra. They are funny, down to earth, and obviously close, dubbing themselves the "three sisters". They all have businesses (watch the interview to see more) and spoke of purpose when describing what they do. Live your best life then, girl!
Here at WAGS Redefined, we're all about redefining the stereotypes often associated with sports wives and girlfriends. I must admit, I am a former critic of the show because of the chosen storylines, but I will say I have seen a change recently. In our interview, Kierra added "I know many WAGS don't necessarily feel all warm and fuzzy about the WAGS franchise." So yeah, I fell into that category.
But...back to the noted changes. The catch phrase promoted for WAGS Atlanta is: "These ladies don't love the game nearly as much as they love the players!" This is true. We do love our men (as does any good spouse or significant other). We all know that for a reality tv show to be successful, there must be an entertainment and drama factor. Knowing this, I was still pleasantly surprised to see the WAGS Atlanta teaser depict a more family-oriented storyline showcasing the camaraderie of WAGS, who also have much to offer. I'm here for it!
In this exclusive interview, Hope, Ariel, and Kierra discuss more of who they are in real life. We're discussing business, infidelity, WAG stereotypes, reality television and how to get casted. Check out the teaser for WAGS Atlanta and read more after the break!
