We’re talking about DeShawn Snow from Housewives of Atlanta, who last appeared in season 1. So, where is DeShawn Snow now? Find out right here.
DeShawn Snow has risen from the ashes and now lives a bright and happy life. She went through a huge transformation after her dramatic exit from the Bravo TV franchise.
We have everything you need to know about her current life and what she’s been up to, right here in our DeShawn Snow wiki.
DeShawn Snow’s Divorce After RHOA
DeShawn Snow was probably the first woman to exit The Real Housewives of Atlanta early in the history of the franchise. The wife of NBA player Eric Snow faced turmoil in her on-screen and off-screen life in 2009, which led her to quit the show the following season.

That year, Kandi Burruss was added to the cast, which cemented Snow’s exit from the season and the reality show. And since then, Bravo TV and the media have followed the inspiring woman and her whereabouts to find out why she left the show.
In 2010, a year after the show, DeShawn Snow was reported to have gone through a rough divorce from her husband of 12 years. Their three sons, Eric, Jarren, and Darius Snow, were also pulled onto the rocky path.
DeShawn Snow explained about how she took it all in stride and said, “I’m great. I’m excited to make things happen. I’m definitely moving forward, I’m growing through this. Since I’ve been on the show, I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting, a lot of writing, a lot of healing.”
Why Didn’t DeShawn Snow Return to RHOA?
In an interview after her exit, Snow was asked why she wasn’t seen on RHOA season 2.
The former reality star said, “[One of the producers] called and said that I was ‘too human for a circus show’ and that because the show did so well, they are about to pump up the drama and they didn’t think that I would fit in.”
Snow also said that she was shocked by the decision, as she thought they might add her back on the show with a new direction.
At the time, rumors were making the rounds that Usher’s ex-wife, Tameka Foster, would be joining the show. But in the end, Burruss was chosen instead.
Picking Up the Pieces
DeShawn Snow was heartbroken, no doubt. But her spirit wasn’t broken, and she drew strength from it.
By 2012, she had already taken the situation in her past as a learning experience and told herself that she’s going to make it big. She was happy about one thing—it was all happening off-camera!
The former RHOA star began writing as a therapeutic healing process. And in 2013, DeShawn Snow’s book titled Lil Shawnee was her first installment in the tween series.

DeShawn Snow’s weight loss was a result of her inspired and energized mind. The star worked on herself and lost 30 pounds.
“I had no control over anything that was happening in my life and the weight and working out was something I could control,” Snow told Us Weekly.
Snow worked with her close friend and trainer, Trey Crump. He helped her not only with her weight loss, but he also advised her on her relationship troubles.
DeShawn Snow said about her strict diet plan, “I supplement with protein shakes and I try to stay away from carbs, sometimes I’ll have seafood or vegetables. Basically it’s portion size, a maintenance thing.”
