Miracles do happen around the holidays- Real Housewives of Atlanta DeShawn Snow hosted a "real" fundraiser for her non-profit organization last week. Rick Eldredge of AJC's PeachBuzz reports:
"Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” reality show cast member DeShawn Snow mingled with real-life Dunwoody housewives at the Perimeter Barnes & Noble over the weekend as she hosted a holiday party and book drive with the upcoming Walt Disney Christmas flick “Bedtime Stories.”
We’re told that Snow strolled into the store toting the newest Louis Vuitton black bag and was stylishly dressed in a black and white print silk shirt and black wool pants. She and fellow fund-raisers from her charity, the DeShawn Snow Foundation Angels, read “A Visit From St. Nicholas” (aka ” ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas”) to a crowd of “Real Housewives” fans and seasonal shoppers. Snow also had some surprise celebs in tow, including New Orleans Saints player Willie Whitehead and her very own hubby, Eric Snow, of the Cleveland Cavaliers. The pro ballplayers also read to the crowd, and Snow playfully referred to himself as “Mr. DeShawn Snow.”
More than 700 books were collected last week during the “Bedtime Stories” tie-in promotion and fund-raiser.
Also, we hear that a certain suddenly camera-shy CNN anchor was in the crowd, clamoring for an autograph. Oddly, it wasn’t self-professed “Real Housewives” groupie Anderson Cooper but rather Heidi Collins, whose son is a major Cavaliers fan.
