The Real Housewives of Atlanta The Real Housewives of Atlanta

Before the money, the fame, the weave-pulling and the pickle-eating, where were the future stars of The Real Housewives of Atlanta?

That's what a new hour-long special on Bravo hopes to answer about the network's most beloved Georgia Peaches. Airing at 9/8c on Sunday on Bravo,  The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Before They Were Stars chronicles the early lives of the cast and uncovers surprising secrets. For instance, NeNe Leakes opens up about her past job as a stripper (and admits she "kinda liked it") and Kandi Burruss talks about her early brushes with music industry success beatboxing. And who knew that before Kim Zolciak had a top-selling dance track on iTunes with "Tardy for the Party," she dreamed of being a dancer and not a singer? (Very surprising considering her trouble learning her dance moves last season, no?)
