They say behind every good man is an even greater woman, and in Hollywood there's no exception. Some our favorite leading men are who they are because of the love and support of their better halves -- their wives. Many of the these women go unrecognized because they choose not to become a quasi-celebrity. With all the hype surrounding the "Real Housewives" series, (especially this season's juicy Beverly Hills franchise) we figured it's time to shine a lil' light on these proud wives, mothers, philanthropists, authors, professionals and entrepreneurs who deserve some credit. Meet the Real Wives of Black Hollywood.
