NOTE: WHY does anyone involved with the Real Housewives franchises always slip in the sentence, “The show isn’t scripted?” We’ve watched numerous Housewives and producer interviews… they always insist on including this tidbit of info! As if anyone is going to believe that these “reality” shows aren’t scripted!!! FUNNY!
Carlos King, who worked on all four seasons of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” talks about his behind-the-scene perspective on reality fights.
Carlos was on set when Sheree Whitfield tugged at Kim Zolciak’s wig on Season 1 of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” “That was my first time experiencing some hand-on-body action. So as a producer we’re all just so shocked and surprised it was happening,” Carlos recalled. “And of course if it ever got physical we would break it up.”
Once they get to know their cast, the producers can start to anticipate their actions.
While Carlos insists that reality shows are not scripted, he says his job entails getting the cast to confront difficult situations and people they may usually avoid. This role leads to producers being blamed for instigating situations that lead to fights.
NOTE: Uh… would there be another conclusion???
NOTE: ”KingDomlos” finally “unprotected” his twitter account! The RHOA weren’t the only franchise to tweet Carlos… ALL of the Housewives from ALL the Bravo franchises tweet @KingDomlos, so it was a bit of a surprise to see his twitter account made public. Apparently, he needs to get the buzz goin’ for VH1′s “Love And Hip Hop”… his twitter wallpaper used to be a photo of Carlos driving his red car; the wallpaper is now the cast of Love and HipHop…
Carlos and his old boss, Oprah… talkin’ about ‘gayness’
