I am so looking forward to SYTTD: Atlanta!  I think the Atlanta Randy is going to be amazing!

I certianly don’t think it will be “ghetto”, I am not sure exactly how to define what exactly that word means anymore, but I think the dresses and the people will be no better or worse than the original SYTTD…

except their Randy… I feel like if I watch their Randy I will be cheating on the original, and I adore Randy Finoli!! (even though I have never met the guy, he’s adorable, and the Atlanta guy looks a little snippy in the previews).

Wow, why would it be Ghetto.  Do you perceive Georgia as being ghetto?  That’s a strange statement to make and a statement like that can be perceived in the wrong way, we should think before we post.

@christie.l: LOL, this thread wasn’t very well recieved, eh? I’ve had a few posts like this, too, so oh well. 🙂

I definitely think it will be different, but I bet it will still be just as addicting as the original.

@christie.l:

Don’t ever judge a book by it’s cover. Any cover. I can’t really see where anyone can call the establishment that they are covering as “ghetto”. It’s a derogatory offensive term. Years ago I got to shop the design center in the middle of Atlanta. The prices would make a horse choke. The quality and the originality were definately there as well as style. Taste and style though are subjective. So it is a matter of taste. Whether or not it’s your personal taste or not, who knows?  Now are there going to be patrons, employees that you may not particularly like. Possibly. There were a few on the previous show that I would never want to wait on me. But again, it’s a matter of personal preference. And I’m sure we have all had a shop clerk wait on us that we may rather hadn’t. We just didn’t mesh. But that didn’t keep me from going back either.

I was just in Atlanta in April, and there was nothing “ghetto” about it.  I don’t know why the SYTTD ATL would be like that.  Everyone was really nice and the city was beautiful.  I’m looking forward to returning.  I don’t know what you meant, but if it’s what I think you meant, you’re definitely wrong.

“Ghetto”, interesting choice of words.  Let’s be real, we know what you meant when you said ghetto.  Given the previews showed an African-American bride wearing a booty enhancer and wanting a Lazaro dress to enhance her assets.  The owner Lori state” the bride has champaign taste with beer pockets.  I myself being an African-American bride from Atlanta and one who actually purchased her Amsale gown from Bridals by Lori, can say that I don’t think this show will be ghetto at all.  Atlanta is a beautiful city and Bridal by Lori is a premier salon in Atlanta.  

I think the show will represent the best and worst of people, particularly brides of all races and wallets, just as SYTTD at Kleinfelds.

As far as Bridals by Lori customer service, I received great service from pre-purchase to alterations and Flo was an excellent consultant.  

In future, be careful of the words you choose or at least have the gall enough to really say what you “really” mean.

my 2 cents!!!

@Ryansgirl: I am from the suburbs of Atlanta..and some parts are very “ghetto” or unsafe-, druggies, bums, crime everywhere…However, I don’t think crackheads will be wandering into bridals by Lori… By the way….she may be stereotyping Atlanta as all ghetto, but the rest of you are stereotyping it as southern belles. Please…..I am neither, and many of us in GA aren’t either. As a matter of fact, in the county I live in…the whites are the minority now (large population of mexican, african american, and asian). I have lived in GA all my life, and am no southern belle..gag me.

And I must say, the choice of word is so offensive on so many levels.  It’s a word than many throw around often; however nonetheless it is still offensive and unjust.

Ok..4 Cents

I am from North Atlanta.  Not all of it is ghetto, but there is definitely that aspect.  I welcome the ghetto-ness.  It will add some drama.

@SouthernTulip:

In Christy’s defense  she must have seen the REAl HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA WHERE it was the only reality housewive show (prior to New Jersey) ones where the Wealthy socialite ladies   pulled  each others hair in public (pulling out each others hair extensions),  crusing ,   gossiping .  I’m an AVID viewer of the Housewives and I remember those Atlanta housewives, but my favorite housewives continue to be  Orange county ladies  

Give her a break, she meant no harm!
