*A segment of MSNBC’s “Melissa Harris-Perry” show on Sunday featured “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kenya Moore among a panel of guests discussing the images of black women on reality television.
Also on the panel, broadcasting live from the Essence Festival experience at the New Orleans Morial Convention center, were theGrio’s managing editor Joy-Ann Reid, Issa Rae, the creator of the groundbreaking web series Awkward Black Girl, and Tonya Lewis Lee, author and wife of filmmaker Spike Lee.
After noting that her show is the number one show on Bravo, Moore added that it is popular among people of all walks of life for a reason.
Women watch the show, Moore said, because, “they identify with the women that they’re seeing.” Describing her co-stars as mothers, wives, and businesswomen, Moore gave a perspective on the show as one that depicts African-American women in a variety of roles that are far from stereotypical.
