Events like these–and the surprises and drama–only have us even more stoked for the eleventh season of RHOA. As an Atlanta native and resident of The Peach State I was all too excited when Seagram’s announced the Peach Bellini flavor of their wine cooler collection. The beverage is sweet and refreshing; and smooth enough to actually serve as a chaser when you combine it with vodka! Happy drinking, and as always, DRINK RESPONSIBLY!

Atlanta is a place known for its diverse heritage, hospitality, soul food, and trap music, truly embodying southern culture. Last night, BET Networks brought “the A” some Brooklyn flavor to familiarize the market with the network’s newest reality series, “Hustle In Brooklyn.”

The BK vibe was recreated at the event as BET converted Atlanta hotspot Terminus 330 to a scene reminiscent of a Brooklyn neighborhood. The room was decorated with a brownstone stoop, a bodega with “Hustle In Brooklyn” magazines featuring the cast, street lights and signs, newspaper stands and New York City metro cards with the “Hustle In Brooklyn” logo. To complete the Brooklyn décor, specialty cocktails ‘Notorious’ and ‘Nutcrackers’ were served, and New York-based DJ Lindsey kept the party moving on the ones and twos.

Speaking to the crowd, cast members SantosDarnell and Azia talked about their individual passions, what makes Brooklyn such a special place, and their excitement about the show. Azia, an aspiring rapper and singer, performed two of her original tracks, “Brooklyn Girl” and “3000,” that electrified the crowd.

Hustle In Brooklyn” airs Tuesdays at 10/9c pm on BET.
