“We got tired of Atlanta being equated with that Real Housewives’ train wreck,” creator D.G. says. “If one of my friends suggested a lunch at Chili’s I would slap them so hard their weave would fall out. ATL has so much more to offer than people realize, and we want them to see that.”
Never shying away from dropping the occasional f-bomb, the DearATL staff is staying tight-lipped on their everyday identities. The DearATL writers pen their insignia at the bottom of each hilarious review, which more often that not, is littered with brutal honesty.
“We want people to fall in love with our opinions, not our blindly good looks,” writer and designer L.M. says. “We have a really strong group of writers, and I’m excited to see what we produce.”
