Out and about | Big Rich Atlanta Premier

This past week I was invited by my friend Sabrina "Brie" Rowe to attend the premier of Style Network's newest reality show Big Rich Atlanta.  Sabrina and her twin sister and business partner Sharlinda Rowe-Parker,along with Sharlinda's daughter Kahdijiha Rowe are among the women that make up this new reality show.  This newest installment in reality TV is set in Georgia and gives it's viewers an inside peek into the world of an exclusive Georgia country club where some of the Atlanta's socialites and their daughters will do whatever it takes to be at the top of the local social scene and in control of all of the action.

I had an opportunity to meet Sabrina and Sharlinda when I first moved to the "A" back in 2004 and started going for my bi-weekly manicures at their posh nail salon Tu La 2 Nails located in the trendy Buckhead area of Atlanta.  Actually now that I think about it. they were some of the first people that I met in the city.  At the time, I was getting my then event planning business off the ground and Sabrina was very instrumental in providing me with some great contacts in the area.  Aside from that she also kept my hands and feet looking uber good, speaking of which now that I'm looking at my nails, I am in desperate need of a manicure.  {Ladies, I will be giving you a call soon!}

The private premier was held at Buckhead Bottle Bar & Bistro and some of who's who in Atlanta were there as we watched the show and cheered for the ladies.  Some of the people spotted at the event were Derek J from RHOA, Mama Dee from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, Q Parker from the hit R&B group 112 {he's also the husband of Sharlinda} and Carl Payne best known as Cole from the popular show Martin was in the house.  The event was sponsored by Remy Martin and yes the drinks were yummy.  My favorite was the Ms. Kahdijiha - The Sweet & Sour Lemon Drop. {can you say yum!}

My longtime friend Kortne was my date for the evening and we had a great time, chatting with other guests and admiring some of the styles people were wearing that evening.  Everyone was dressed to kill in true ATL fashion.  It was definitely a great night!

Oh and before the show was GREAT!  There is already quite a bit of tension between Kahdijiha and fellow castmate Ashley that I'm sure will only escalate as the season continues.  My advice to Ashley...don't mistake the sweet face and southern charm of Kahdijiha as weakness.  Because if she is anything like her mother and aunt, she is a force to be reckoned with if you come at her the wrong way.  Well, if you haven't already guessed it I am loving the show and am on Team Brie, Sharlinda and Kahdijiha!

Here are some additional photos from the evening...

Make sure you tune in every Wednesday at 8|7c on Style Network for a good old dose of southern charm and hospitality on Big Rich Atlanta.
