The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s second season premiered with a bang last night. The star of the show was undeniably Sheree Whitfield. Her argument with the most unprofessional man in the history of television was the highlight of the show.
Miss She by Sheree herself appeared on Bravo’s late night show – “Watch What Happens.” Host, Andy Cohen, was able to get party planner, Anthony, on the phone to tell his side of the story.
Anthony admitted what I suspected in saying the party was being offered for free. Anthony however refused to apologize to Sheree for being extremely unprofessional, and even threatening to physically hit a woman on national television. He however decided Sheree’s mother deserved an apology for his “Your mama is a bitch” comment.
It seems Anthony’s plan to offer a free party to Sheree in exchange for free publicity for his company is backfiring. I can’t imagine people will be waiting in line to hire him after the way he treated her. A “professional” man threatening to hit a woman is completely unacceptable under any circumstances. This “man” has no idea what it means to be a professional.
He makes the situation even worse by refusing to apologize to Sheree. Anthony also claimed the free party he was planning for Sheree was worth $60,000. Sure it was Anthony. When asked about the situation, Sheree simply referred to Anthony as being “crazy.” Can’t disagree with her on that one.
UPDATE – This story gets better. Anthony sent an email to SandraRose denying that he is gay. He claims to be married to a woman with children. He sure had me, and all of America fooled. What people think of his sexuality should be the least of his worries.
TELL US – WHAT WERE YOUR THOUGHTS ON SHEREE’S FIGHT WITH THE PARTY PLANNER?
Andy wasted no time in asking The Real Housewives of New Jersey “star” about the infamous reunion incident which left Caroline Manzo in tears. Danielle claimed that just prior to the reunion show, she gave a phone number to the brother of a longtime friend … and that brother just happened to be Dina Manzo’s ex-husband. The reason being? It had something to do with contracts of the show according to Danielle.
Dina has admitted in a past interview that the tension between she and Danielle began over lawyer fees for their show’s negotiations. Dina hired a lawyer and wanted all the women to chip in so that they could all negotiate their contracts together for the show. Danielle declined saying she wanted to do her own negotiations.
Danielle went on to admit she regrets her actions saying, “It wasn’t my place to do so.” She also adds that she didn’t think it was a big enough deal to provoke Caroline’s reaction.
Other topics covered during the show included questions about her plastic surgery and sex tape. She denied ever having a brow lift, and claimed to be laying off on the botox for a while. When it came to the sex tape issue, she claimed to have been “set up.” She also denied the news of being a past escort.
I’m not really sure how one can be unaware that they are being taped with a cell phone camera while having sex, but umm sure Danielle. I’m sure she was set up the same way someone set her up to go on national television and ask her 46 26 year old boyfriend for public restroom sex.
An expanded live series of Watch What Happens will premiere July 16 on Bravo at midnight with host Andy Cohen. Andy is best known for hosting Watch What Happens reunion specials including the two part reunion for The Real housewives of New Jersey.

We can expect the show to be unpredictable, funny, and occasionally shocking. You don’t want to miss the premier show tomorrow which will feature New Jersey Housewives’ Danielle Staub.
Hopefully Andy will ask some unanswered questions from the reunion show and let’s hope Danielle will answer them truthfully.
Bravo has one more reason to bring us a 2nd season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the Tuesday night finale showdown delivered the network a record 4.6 million viewers! That is the highest ratings ever for any of their housewives series, surpassing both the OC and New York franchises.
In other news, Andy Cohen, the host of the Housewives reunion shows recently spoke out about the New Jersey reunion. Andy says the reunion lasted well over 6 hours, “I threw out a grenade, let it go, and said, ‘OK, ladies,’” Cohen says. “And it exploded multiple times. I had shrapnel. I went home, drank a bottle of wine and watched “Schindler’s List” to relax.” Can’t wait to watch that reunion.
