Hello! I am glad I am able to write to you one final time. As always, I will keep my comments to a minimum. I think the reunion special was very interesting! I feel that everyone had an opportunity to clear up any misconceptions, and to address any issues. Andy certainly caught me off guard when he asked me my thoughts on everything! I was trying to properly articulate my thoughts (LOL) and was at a lost of words. That shot of me was hilarious. At the end of the day, our lives will always be connected because of the show (as NeNe points out). I still think highly of each of the ladies and wish them much success on their endeavors. While we may not all hang out, we are all still cordial to one another.
I want to thank everyone for making our first season such a success! It couldn't have happened without you guys. This definitely has been a learning experience and I think I am a lot stronger because of it. I am encouraged by all of the positive responses I have received. A lot of great opportunities have come out of the show.
u were too classy for this show which is why your no longer on it! thank your lucky stars that you got out when you did. I think ur a phenomenal women w/a lot to offer your community and your family. keep doing what you do
I am a struggling mother, and it just upsets me the drama that these housewives display. If i was financially blessed such as these women i would be so ever grateful to Jesus that my day would be full of being mindful of others and giving back to my community.
It's ridiculous that these women were given a show. These are not the "real" housewives of atlanta"!!!! these are well-off, self-centered drama queens, who didn't need to be on tv portraying themselves to be "real". the "real" housewives" are humble, hard-working women with real struggles. these women just want everyone to see where they live and what they have; it's sad.
Hi Deshawn Snow,
I think that you displayed class and inteligence in the way that you handle yourself, also I like how you kept your family in mind for when the show aired they would'nt be embarassed and you would'nt have to apologized for your behaver to your family friends and fans,because we are woman of color we should not give critics the satifaction of saying (I told you so) no matter how much money they get they are still Ghetto. But for the most part I thought the show was very entertaining and funny and really enjoyed it. I think all the woman where beutiful, smart & funny, they just made some crazy choices about how to handle some of the situation they where put in but you did great and you displayed greatness.Great Mom, Great Wife & Great Friend.Keep up the good work,cant wait for the next season.

Viewer DeShawn, I would like to commend you for your foundation, helping your community shows that you are grateful to God by serving others. Some of your co-stars like Sheree and Kim who want to pursue unrealistic dreams, should learn from you, to be less self serving and more giving, they will receive what they give, and life for them and this world will be a better place with less DRAMA.
Mrs. Snow, I respected you so much as a mother and wife on the show... To me, you'll always be what a "Real Housewife of Atlanta" should stand for. Philanthropy such as your foundation, being a phenomenal mother, and trying new things is what being financially blessed is about. I love the fact that you connected with women at Spelman College to continue your foundation work, and wish you well on your trip to Africa- I'm going there myself this summer...
P.S... Thank you for showing all types of people that money and ability does not make African American women crazy, drama-filled, and raggedy... You stand as a model for young women... Thank you...
Ms. D, I'd just like to say that you conducted yourself as a lady always. I don't think you are any different in your everyday life. Women all over and myself as well could learn how to compose ourselves by observing your behavior in every situation that came before you. Your girls are very blessed to have such a lady like yourself to look up to. Good luck with your organization and future endeavors that you take own!
DeShawn, you are a true example of a classy Black Woman who is classy and I am so very proud to have watched the show and I was able to see ONE SISTA who supported her family, community and self with pride and dignity. Thank you my Sista and good luck to you.
All I have to say to you is that you are very classy women and great mother and wife. Keep up to good work for your foundation. I was just as upset as you were when everyone came to eat and drink and did not donate any money.
Thank you for your first of all being a tither. I was impressed with that. Giving God his and he will give you yours. I like the way you handled the interviews and being able to discern any underlying agendas. You clearly stand out among the other ladies. The best in all of your endeavors. Are you still at Bishop Longs church?
Deshawn,you made me very proud you were the only ne on that show that displayed class and humility,unlike your castmates much love and success to you.
I am so proud at the way you conducted yourself. Your husband should read the comments on this wall. You and Lisa were my favorite but after the reunion.....my God, Lisa is no better than Nene. They belong together. But YOU, my dear......such class!!! You are a true LADY. Please keep it up. I felt angry about your fundraising. Those people came only to eat your food and be entertained. I was so proud of your husband. He was so supportive of you. Don't worry about it. You did everything right for the sake of your foundation. You spent a lot of money for that fundraising but people were too calouse and self absorbed. They didn't go to your fundraising to give. They went there to take. I love you DeShawn. I can't wait to see you again next season. Let these women in your show learn a thing or two about class. They can learn a lot from you. God bless.
You represented christanity very well. I am sure the other ladies will miss you more than they know.
I was very dissapointed when I found out that you would no longer be on the show, it just shows that television is driven by drama and non-sense. I visited your website and will continue to. Your time on the show has inspired and motivated me. You are a beautiful woman of God.
Mrs. D, I to believe you are a very classy lady and did a very good job with keeping your cool. Im sorry to hear that you will not be returning to the show, you will be truly missed all I can say is that your husband and kids and very lucky to have such a inspirational wife and mother in their lives. good luck and may good bless you.
Hello DeShawn, It is a shame that you will not be returning to the show. I really enjoyed watching your story, and actually thought you and NeNe were the two most interesting ladies on the show. I, like you, do not like to participate in a lot of drama in my daily life, and do not let people stress me out with their drama. I think your personality and your story provided a good balance for the show. I also think you provided something for people who otherwise may not be interested in a show like this. If they come back with nothing but a bunch of nonsence and over-the-top drama, it will be unbeleivable and not worth watching.
Hi Deshawn I wish you and your family the best I loved you on the show and believe you were the realist so God bless you and keep being who you are.
I JUST LOVE YOU, YOU ARE THE SWEETEST MOST CARING WOMAN ON THE SHOW, YOU ARE AMAZING GOD SURE TOOK TIME ON CREATING YOU GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!!!!!
Thank you for having a foundation that helps girls. When I coming up I didnt have a female to lookup to that could guide me and make sure I would grow up a lady. I had to learn to be a lady on my own but the came after I fought just about everyone I grew up with, seriously. If I wasnt fighting I was trying to gain acceptance through the wrong crowd. In which I established a horrible reputaion that took forever to get rid of. I pray no other girl go through what i went through as a youngster and teenager. I'm so proud of the hard work you are putting in for these young ladies. One day I too will have a foundation that supports our young ladies especially our teen mothers. Do your thang DeShawn you are great at it!!!!!!
well i just wanted to say, you were the only true lady on the show .. your husband should be proud!!!! i'm glad to see a man who gets alittle fame and money,but he stays with the one who was there when he had nothing.... your my pick, i'll pray for the rest of them...
It is disappointing that Bravo would not bring you back to the show. It just shows how you were the only "normal" lady in Atlanta. You are the only one who had a true/first marriage and supported your kids and husband. I guess you weren't "dramatic" enough/"trashy" enough in your past, to remain on a show like this. Maybe that is a blessing in disguise for your family.. not to be put out into the media and scrutinized for every flaw. Best wishes to you and your family..
deshawn you are just as beautiful on the inside as outside. also as far as your charity auction, at least you tried. it was a learning experience for the next time. who the hell doesnt make mistakes? your husband was an absolute doll for backing you up and comforting you. at least you have a quiet dignity about you. all the best
Dear Ms. DeShawn- I am really upset that you will now longer be in the show. I think you are such a kind person, and continue to do you work regardless of this show or not! I wish the best to you and your husband.

Are you Serious DeShawn? The DeShawn Snow Foundation, who the heck are you? Your husband was a good basketball player, but for you to have a foundation in your name is hilarious to me. No one even knows who you are...so sad really.
Deshawn, I watched the show because you were on the show. You made the show real. The African-American community is full of women like you and did us proud. I am sorry you will not be returning. I appreciate your Chrisitan faith, your relationship with Eric and the children and the kind way you treat people.
Deshawn, I can really appreciate the amount of class, positive attitude and how publicized that you were a Christian that you brought to the show. In your blog, someone thanked you for being a tither. But do you think the Lord would appreciate how much of your blessings that you waste? Some may argue that you should do whatever becuz you are blessed financially but you could do so much more for spreading God's word by supporting other Christian organizations rather than just one. I love you the fact that you have a foundation but with the amount of money that goes into this program, I think alot more can be done.
Out of all of the housewives on the show, you are the most grounded. You possess such class and grace and you are the epitomy of leardership. You show great love for your husband and I was extremely impressed you said that you may return back to school and work on a Master degree. Lisa is cool, but I lost respect for her when she ran back and told Kim about NeNe's comment and then verbally attacked Kim with threats on the reunion show. A real peacemaker keeps the peace at all cost. NeNe is fine in her own way but she is too abrasive. She cuts you to the core and hide behind the fact that she is keeping it real. Shree' spend most of show talking about how beautiful she is. I will give her a due. She is beautiful, but she needs a real life. As for Kim, all I have to say is when you hang with beautiful, talented and powerful Black women, you need to keep up
Bravo was showing re-runs of the show you participated in, and after watching the episode where you held your fundraiser event, it disheartened me to see how shallow and disrespectful people treated you and your event. Sure you have a very comfortable lifestyle and people are dumb to ridicule you for it. You could spend your time just shopping, pawning your children off on the nanny, only lavishing yourself. You have taken the time to give back to others and I truly commend you for it. I think it is wonderful that God has blessed you with your life but more importantly that he has instilled in you the spirit of helping others beside only you and your family and friends. If it weren't for you I wouldn't have bothered to watch the show and I honestly doubt I will continue to watch season 2 without you in it. Thank you for showing us who a decent human being really is.
We out in tv land love you and will truly miss u ' but luck in what ever you do next. Alway's takecare of u and your family !!!!

I think you are one classy lady and you make me proud to be a black woman you handled yourself very well and was a lady at all times. I took the test and it says that I am more like you. You are a inspiration to me and so many other women the rest of the ladies acted just like a b----
Hi Deshawn, I just wrote a blog on Sheree's page explaining that you were the classiest lady on the show. I agree that you were the most humble. You were the true peacemaker. I commend you for maintaining your focus on your family and foundation. I just learned that you will not be on the show next season and I am disappointed. It was a pleasure getting to watch you last season. Good luck on your future endeavors.
DeShawn I love the person you are and things that you stand for. I love the fact that your heart is in the right place at all times. To be honset I thought that you would be the one that had her nose in the air from the start of the season when they showed you with the housekeeper, cook etc..... I was really like on know he we go another person who wants to throw away money on things that they can do on there own. But you really are not that person I really admire you for all the thing that you do and the relationship that you and your husband share because no matter what you are the one person that stood by his side before he was the famous basketball player and the way he support you is very up lifting. I wish you and your family nothing but the best and good luck on evrything. Stay classy girl.
i am interested in obtaining my master's degree in theology. i am curious as to what made you choose divinity instead of theology or apologetics? i wish you would be coming back this season. it would have inspired a lot of woman watching you pursue your degree.
I live in Atlanta and want to help your foundation. I head a company specializing in therapeutic supplies and would like to perhaps sponsor a team or athletic organization for the girls that you help. I have signed up on your website but never received any response. I am sincere in my offer and would like to volunteer what I can.
It is understood that you knew Eric Snow before he was a big basketball star but you carry yourself like it's all about the money. You like to boast about your staff which I'm sure was a put on for the show and how you don't cook which I find to be a lie because you look like you can throw down some food. You clearly come from nothing and I know this because people that are truly well off don't need to convince other people that they are with elaborate displays. You are the type of woman that will cause a man to be broke with you spending all of his money on things you don't need.
hello deshawn i think that you a very nice person the way you are helping the young girls...so keep up the good work
Deshawn, I think you were the nicest, most classiest woman on the show. You are clearly a God fearing woman and I admire the fact that you want to give to those who are less fortunate. Don't give up concerning your foundation. It may be hard to raise money at first but I pray that God will bless your foundation. Stay the loving, humble person that you are. God bless you.
Hi Deshawn, I want you to know, I think you are THE ONE that would make any one of a Woman Of Color PROUD! :) You were the REAL LADY! No cattyness about you, no drama, no showing off. Just pure, sweet and always smiling and Thanking The Lord for what you have struggled for and being with your Family FOR REAL. Not like the rest of those jokers. I will miss you terribly. You put Class in the show and kept yourself grounded. Be proud Deshawn. You are a wonderful woman. This is from one Proud White woman Who thanks The Good Lord everyday to a Proud Black Woman who I feel would be my friend if we ever met. Good luck Deshawn and Bless You and your wonderful Family. :)
DeShawn, I am ashamed to admit that you were the one that worked my nerves on the first couple of episodes. I questioned why you constantly mentioned your staff and the estate manager you needed to hire. I quickly came to realize how 'real' you are. I applaude your efforts in giving back to the less fortunate, your spirtual awareness (you recognize that God has blessed you and your family.
You made me smile by mentioning back in the day when you and your busband were really appreciative when you could just afford Red Lobster. My fiance and I had our first date at Red Lobster many years ago. God has blessed us as well and I would love to assist you with your mission to empower young women. We are relocating to Atlanta in June. I will attempt to reach out to you thru your website.
As far as Bravo's decision not to bring you back....be thankful. I will continue to watch the show in order to fill the need for ridiculous mindless drama, but you don't belong with that group. I can picture you on Oprah talking about your life's mission or writing a book on your life experiences as the wife of an NBA player/mother/divinity student. Wow, the chapters of your life are just beginning to unfold. God Bless you and your family. Stay focused! Stay Blessed!
Deshon, you have a wonderful an positive attitude about yourself. ALWAYS A LADY! I like that about you. Love what your doing for the young ladies in your community. We all have alot to learn from you, as well as others. You are certinly a POSITIVE role model. I'll miss that in the upcoming season. You and your family ( very supportive husdman, a real gentelmen) are beautiful. You contuine to throw your wonderful fundraisers, I like that you set the bar so high (1 million ) everyone doesent have the strenght to do that, its sad that grown folk don't realize that failure is a part of success, and with all do respect it was'ent a failure it was a stumbling block, a learning process if you will. Keep doing what you do because you do it so well.PLUS you have that ALWAYS A LADY quilty about yo self. (Lol) DO YOU! Dana, Tulsa,OK
Hi, Deshawn I just want you to know that you are such a wonderful example of the Virtuous Women in Proverbs. Everytime I watched the show I was so happy to know we as Christian Women do have a person to really represent us. I want to thank you for being such a wonderful representative of Christ even while the cameras were rolling. I never felt that you were not who I saw every week. I truly believe in you and want you to continue to be the women, wife, mother, and sista that you are.
Your beauty Deshawn was not only on the outside; but I truly feel that it is displayed on the inside as well.
I pray that God will continue to bless and keep you are your family forever in His arms; and that you will prosper as your soul prospers. To have a God father such as Eddie Long that says a lot about you.
I really pray that you allow God to use all your gifts to bless others in whatever way that He sees fit.
Stay Humble Deshawn and always keep God first in all that you do.
Be blessed my sista
Candy... Who says that they don't? It's rather sad that you guys are so hateful and angry that these woman have been televised. It says alot about you because you watch, critized and belittle women that you don't even know personally. But boy if you were their friends or in there click you would not have aproblem with them at all. Stop hatin and ask the lord for what you want and stop complaining about what he has blessed others with. Thier blessing and how they use them are theirs and your is yours. He gives blessing that we deserve not what we want. Have you guys giving back in any way? Remember it does not take money to visit the homeless, nursing homes and hospitals. Go and complain to the dying how you have not got what you deserve and how he God gave these women a television show and they didn't invite you.
I think that it is a compliment to the person you are that Bravo is not having you on for another season. These housewives shows are getting trashier each season. They saw that you are a class act and wouldn't stoop down to the level the other women are willing to. Good luck with all your future endeavors!!
You showed class with your peace making skill to try to get the group back together after the fall out with the Sunset Dinner. I enjoyed the show and how you carry yourself i know your husband and your family was really proud of you you didn't let the lights of the show change your behavior or attitude. God bless you and your family.
