"WAGS Atlanta" Joins Hit Series "WAGS Miami" and "WAGS LA" Taking Viewers Inside the Exclusive World of the Wives and Girlfriends of Some of Today's Hottest Professional Athletes

"WAGS Miami" Returns for Season Two on June 29 at 9pm ET/PT with Newcomers Faven Biru and Kayla Cox and "WAGS LA" Returns for Season Three with New Faces Amber Nichole Miller, Dominique Penn, and Michelle Quick on August 24 at 9pm ET/PT

LOS ANGELES - May 4, 2017 - E! Entertainment heads down to "The A" for some southern hospitality with the latest iteration of the popular "WAGS" (Wives and Girlfriends of Sports Stars) franchise as new series "WAGS Atlanta" launches later this fall. "WAGS Atlanta" documents the luxurious lifestyles and real-life drama in the exclusive world of superstar athletes through the perspective of the women who stand by their side. The WAGS of Atlanta live life un-apologetically, and are bound together by a strict hierarchy of unspoken rules with no boundaries, no filters and the infamous social life of Atlanta's elite. These ambitious, strong women are turning things up and turning on the charm as they work to make their own dreams come true. Additionally, season two of "WAGS Miami" launches on Thursday, June 29 at 9pm ET/PT and "WAGS LA" season three premieres on Thursday, August 24th at 9pm ET/PT.

"The 'WAGS' franchise has a passionate, loyal and engaged fan base who love the exclusive access into the extravagant lifestyles that these ladies lead," said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Programming & Development, E!. "With the expansion of the franchise into Atlanta, we look forward to bringing viewers even more outrageous and must-see moments."

The sophomore season of "WAGS Miami" has the South Florida ladies bringing the heat. Ashley Roberts is in the midst of planning the wedding of her dreams with fiancée, Atlanta Falcons' linebacker, Philip Wheeler, but Philip has his sights set on another ring as his team prepares for the Super Bowl. Meanwhile, Metisha Schaefer, Hencha Voigt and Astrid Bavaresco continue to navigate the wild ride that comes with being single in Miami. Still coping with the aftermath of her breakup with Reshad Jones (Miami Dolphins), Darnell Nicole Thibodeaux remains resilient while Claudia Sampedro (dating Julius Peppers of the Green Bay Packers) is finally engaged and able to focus on their future. New additions to the cast include wives Faven Biru, married to Corey Luiget of the Los Angeles Chargers and Kayla Cox who is married to former MLB player Eric Fornataro. As Faven struggles with her husband's team's relocation, Kayla juggles married life with her career as a top Wilhelmina model. From the shops on Lincoln Road to the white-hot sands of South Beach, these ladies prove the only thing hotter than the Miami weather is the drama.

The "WAGS LA" life has plenty of perks, but the diamonds and mansions don't always come easy. This season follows an overwhelmed Nicole Williams as she plans her long-awaited, dream wedding to fiancé Larry English, leaving everyone to wonder whether the big day will truly be the fairytale she imagined. Sasha Gates also prepares for big changes when she is forced to relocate her family permanently with the Chargers controversial move to LA. Meanwhile, Autumn Ajirotutu struggles to repair severed ties within the group, and officially single, Natalie Halcro and Olivia Pierson are haunted by their romantic pasts and uncover fractured friendships of their own. Barbie Blank's friendship with model/actress Amber Nichole Miller (girlfriend to former MMA Light Heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz) continues to develop despite Amber's growing tensions with the rest of the ladies. Additionally, self-proclaimed "momprenuer" Dominique Penn has feelings of neglect during football season and struggles to reignite the romance with her football star husband (Oakland Raiders offensive lineman Donald Penn), as Michelle Quick (wife of Washington Redskins wide receiver Brian Quick) transitions her family from LA to Washington following the latest trade announcements.
