“Gimme the LOOT!…Gimme the LOOT!”
Super celebrity photographer Derek Blanks never ceases to amaze me! During this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Derek took on the challenge of creating his signature Alter Ego scenarios for the cast members of Bravo’s most popular show. The photos were shot earlier this year but kept under wraps until the airing of last night’s show. Each housewife portrayed images thought up by fellow castmate NeNe Leakes. They’re all simply hilarious! Sheree’ Whitfield (above), widely recognized for her “7 figure settlement” statement during the first season of the show is photographed robbing herself at an ATM, while Lisa Wu-Hartwell (below) is shot portraying good vs. evil by stealing cookies from herself.
If you watch the show, you saw that NeNe originally wanted Kim Zolciak to be Black in her shoot. This all stemmed from Kim’s revelation during the first season that she was a Black woman stuck in a White woman’s body. Well Kim opted to go the safe route since I’m almost positive she woulda been accused of being in Blackface:
The most riveting photo of them all was fellow ATLien, Kandi Burruss’, ode to drunk driving. As someone who’s family had recently been affected by a drunk driving accident, Kandi showed a ton of emotion in the photo and her goal of bringing attention to drinking and driving was certainly reached:
Shouts out to Derek Blanks once again for such amazing work!
