Bobby Brown Brands Atlanta?

So in about 20 minutes, Bravo will premiere their reality show Being Bobby Brown chronicling the former New Edition member, his fallen star rehab wife, and their extended family over six months in the…well, in Atlanta.

Sorry, I was looking for some sort of smart and witty statement to describe the city.

While city officials are spending $15 million trying to find a brand for this Chattahoochee burg, Brown’s reality show may actually help out in that area by showcasing some of the city’s neighborhoods, premiere restaurants, shopping centers and hotels to a national audience. Sure, it’s no panhandling ban, but it may just be another weapon in the arsenal to help brand Atlanta as more than panhandlers, the Big Chicken and the Atlanta Braves.

So how does “Pit of the Peach State” strike ya?
