WE tv put the HOT in Hotlanta with their new reality series Beyond the Pole - which premiered last Thursday. The show features “six of Atlanta’s hottest strippers” as they look to find financial freedom outside of the club with the help of ex-stripper and now self-made millionaire Coach Stormy Wellington (a.k.a. Pitbull in a skirt).
The show is described as a stripper version of Bad Girls club - so it's packed with violence but most of the times when the girls are fighting, they're wearing skimpy stripper outfits.
Beyond The Pole, looks at the lives of Atlanta strippers on and off the stage and is moving to WEtv . Beyond The Pole first aired on Urban Movie Channel. WEtv picked up the show which will air Thursday nights at 10 PM beginning August 8th. The show has a new look. It features former stripper and millionaire life coach Stormy Wellington mentoring 6 of Atlanta’s hottest strippers as they hustle for dreams and financial freedom.
Folks on social media are upset, and claiming that the new show is too violent.
