Additionally, Sheree is living through the aftermath of last year’s bombshell that her ex-husband Bob Whitfield abused her. Since hiring a life coach, Sheree seems to be opening up about the most private aspects of her life. And she claims that talking to her children about the abuse on camera was tough, but necessary. “Having the conversation about the unhealthy relationship between me and their dad was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do! I love my kids with everything I am and have always chosen to protect them. I never wanted them to look at me as damaged, broken, or less than the strong, loving, fun, supportive mom that they know.”
“My hope is through sharing this part of my life it can help empower others to face their past, learn from it, and heal from it,” says Sheree. “I want to continue to live in my truth and live my best life.”
I have been patiently waiting for my girl Sheree Whitfield to find her match.For the longest time, I was rooting for her to get back with Bob Whitfield, but after the past with domestic violence came to light, no one is hoping for that reconciliation. Now Sheree is finally in a new relationship and it’s with someone who is incarcerated – something that has weirdly become a Real Housewives staple. One person who is very familiar with that situation is Sheree’s former RHOA costar Phaedra Parks, who has been dropped as a Housewife following the epic revelation from the Season 9 reunion.
Sheree Whitfield might have carried a bone or three on The Real Housewives Of Atlanta this season, but she’s keeping herself out of the reunion drama pretty deftly. Plus – she’s got enough on her plate with ex-husband Bob Whitfield showing up to offer apologies and hover behind the couch like grade A creeper.
In her blog, Sheree focuses on her past domestic abuse coming to light, and how she’s ultimately made peace with the subject. (Although she still hasn’t spoken to her kids about it.) Sheree explains why she kept mum on the physical violence in her marriage for so long: “I would have never spoken on that part of my relationship with Bob if he hadn’t brought it up. I always wanted to protect my family and kids from that. I didn’t want to taint the image of their dad by how he acted in our marriage. So I just remained silent for many years.”
And of course, tacked onto the very tail end was the astounding revelation that, for some God-forsaken reason, Jesus, or possibly the devil put it into Phaedra Parks‘ prayer cloth that she should start a totally baseless rumor that Kandi Burruss is a secret lesbian menage-a-trois stalker who plotted to drug and rape Porsha Williams. Yep – fun times in libel-land from everybody’s favorite lawless lawyer!
Apparently earlier this year, Phaedra told poor, innocent, unsuspecting (Ha!) Porsha this lurid tale, then sat back on her donkey booty through the entire season to watch as Porsha defended herself and kept Phaedra’s confidences. And never, ever, not once, did Phaedra utter a word that it was SHE who started this rumor about Kandi. I’m sure Phaedra will handily dismiss it as “shade,” or something she heard ‘on the streets,’ then swat it away with her handbag, give herself a spritz of holy water then waltz into the church pew for some restoration. Except honey-butt: NO – you have burned the place down. Call Willie Watkins and fire up the band cause this big, ole fraudulent lie was your Phuneral By Phaedra!
The contradiction that is Phaedra makes for interesting, albeit frustrating TV. I heard that Phaedra had an extremely tough time at the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, but I haven’t seen anything out of the ordinary so far. My expectations are unreasonably high, but I am waiting for some major truth bombs to be unleashed, or at the very least, some lies to be exposed. I am so ready for parts three and four.
I don’t know about you, but I was so happy to have Sheree Whitfield back as a full-time cast member this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. The bone collector was the one who kept the story lines going and I was grateful for that. I’m also happy that Chateau Sheree is finally done (allegedly) because yes, I’m happy for Sheree, but I’m also happy that the viewers won’t have to hear about baseboards and furniture shopping for another season.
Even though I’m in the minority of people who think Kenya Moore is hilarious, I love it when Sheree comes for her. I’m in that even smaller minority of viewers that are both Kenya and Sheree fans. Sheree shared her thoughts on Kenya’s random argument with Kim Zolciak during the finale and she teased some EPIC drama from the RHOA reunion.
I still can’t believe that Sheree Whitfield’s mansion is finally “finished.” Sure, that last word is debatable, but we all have to agree that the house did look gorgeous (for the most part). Plus, the Chateau Sheree housewarming party brought some great drama to finish out the Real Housewives of Atlanta season… before the reunion. So obviously Sheree had a lot to say about it during her Watch What Happens Live appearance last night.
