Sheree Whitfield, who stars on the Real Housewives of Atlanta is reportedly, knee-deep once again, in financial woes. The wannabe fashion designer and feisty cast member is allegedly being hauled into court by a contracting company for failure to fork over $15,450 in unpaid bills for work that is being done on her very controversial and forever-manse-in-the-works, “Chateau Sheree,” states the Atlanta Constitution-Journal.
The lawsuit which was filed by Stoploss Specialists, an emergency response contractor on December 17 of this year at Atlanta’s Fulton County Superior Court, not only demand payment but have tacked on yet another $7,550 in late fees and other charges.
According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff claims they were hired a year ago to “supply equipment, labor and/or materials for the improvement” of Sheree’s yet uncompleted, five-years-in-the-making-and-still-counting, 16,000 square foot mansion. The controversial home construction project has been the subject of countless jokes on RHOA as Sheree’s co-stars ridiculed her for taking an inordinate amount of time to complete her home. Since Sheree broke ground on the home, the scuttlebutt has been that she was over her head and could not afford the costly venture. Over the years, there had even been reports that the much-maligned home had fallen into foreclosure because oftentimes it just sat with no visible construction going on.
Sheree also had more than her fair share of debt problems that involved child support issues and legal debt entanglements. The divorced mom of three’s peach was also taken away by the RHOA powers-that-be back in 2012 which meant a serious lack of a hefty paycheck. Now even though Sheree is back on RHOA’s season 8, her role is not as robust as it was back-in-the-day. In Sheree’s Bravo blog last month, she briefly talked about her albatross stating how she, “took on an enormous project with my family and clearly got in way over my head.”
