After this week’s disturbing episode of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta in which Sheree Whitfield’s ex-husband, Bob Whitfield, joked about choking Sheree in the past, some are wondering what the status of their relationship is now? Sheree says they are not back together, but do have a friendship – for the sake of their children. (Let’s hope Bob also has a damn good therapist.)
Recalling the horrific moment in the van that Bob joked about not choking Sheree “hard enough” when they were married because she’s “still breathing,” Sheree says, “I was just shocked. Speechless. So many times as women, we just try to bury negative thoughts and traumatic situations, so when we were in the car and he said those things, it just brought so much from our past up that I have tried to suppress for well over a decade.”
Kenya Moore shouldn’t really EVER be surprised when a cast mate has an issue with her. But on The Real Housewives Of Atlanta this week, she was shocked when Sheree Whitfield turned on her during Phaedra Parks‘ absolutely ridiculous “Restoration Service” – especially because Kenya had comforted Sheree earlier that day after Bob Whitfield callously joked about abusing Sheree in the past.
Kenya recalls Bob’s comments that sent everyone reeling – and ultimately caused Sheree to break down in tears. “The entire conversation turned my stomach and made me want to exact revenge upon him for Sheree. I wanted to defend her from the pain he was causing her in that moment. It wasn’t funny, and I know all too well what that feels like.”
Bob Whitfield laid down some seriously messed up talk on this week’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta, and the cast and viewers alike still haven’t fully recovered. Nor, in my opinion, should they. Housewives will be Housewives, and snark will be snark. But Bob’s cavalier comments about not choking Sheree Whitfield “hard enough” in the past were just plain grotesque and dangerous. Domestic violence is not a laughing matter.
Phaedra Parks agrees, sharing that she was “shocked and somewhat disturbed by him finding humor related to such a serious situation. Watching the emotional impact it had on Sheree was heart breaking. I encouraged him to apologize to ease her pain as they were clearly on two different pages. It was obvious Bob did not appreciate the emotional gravity of his words and tone.”
Obviously, Porsha and Phaedra were the ones who were dragging Kandi behind her back (and eventually to her face), but Kandi only found out about it thanks to Sheree, so I wonder how Sheree feels about all of this. Is she happy that her messiness resulted in an extremely dramatic story line for the show? Or does she actually feel bad about the accusations snowballing into Porsha accusing Kandi and Todd Tucker of attempting to drug her?
I was wondering which Housewife was going to bring the term “alternative facts” into play first, but I just didn’t think it would happen this soon. Kenya Moore went in on her mortal enemy Sheree Whitfield for the comments that she made about Kenya “antagonizing” Matt Jordan‘s violent behavior.
Normally I love it when Sheree and Kenya beef. They usually both cross the line pretty equally so it all comes out in the wash and ends up being pretty hilarious, but I feel like Sheree was definitely in the wrong with this one. Since when does someone getting violent the victim’s fault? That’s like me blaming for Sheree’s behavior for Bob Whitfield skipping out on years of child support. It. Makes. No. Sense.
The longtime Real Housewives of Atlanta viewers have seen Sheree Whitfield go through a lot as a single mother to her three kids. Now we are in this new weird era where Sheree may be getting back together with her ex husband Bob Whitfield, but for the most part she was shit talking him as a provider and parent for years. Nevertheless, Sheree seems to be a good mother and now she has a big reason to celebrate: her youngest child Kaleigh got into Howard University.
A lot of reality TV children get into a ton of legal trouble and do a lot of embarrassing things. Thankfully, Sheree’s daughter is not a part of that club. It looks like Kaleigh is definitely on a good path and her mom is understandably proud of her.
Bob Whitfield hasn’t exactly stepped it up when it comes to his pursuit of his ex wife Sheree Whitfield on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but I can’t help rooting for them to rekindle their flame. I am a sucker when it comes to former couples getting back together, but it is clear that Sheree isn’t a softy like I am. Nevertheless, she does seem to enjoy Bob’s company these days. So what is their deal? Are Sheree and Bob back together?
Truthfully, I don’t think we are going to get a straight answer on Sheree and Bob‘s relationship status until this current season finishes airing. Sheree is a smart cookie. She is not going to give out any information for free when she can drag out this story line to benefit herself the most. So what does Sheree have to say about her ex returning to her life?
