Noticeably missing in attendance were Sheree’s fellow Atlanta housewives — Kandi, Kim, Nene, and Lisa. Trouble in paradise perhaps? “It’s just a working relationship,” Sheree explained. “We all have our different things that we’re doing. We’re not friends, but we are cordial.”
Stylist.com’sblog was able to get Sheree for a quick Q&A session, below are some excerpts -
StyleList: How does showing at Fashion Week in New York compare to having a show in Atlanta? Sheree: There’s absolutely no comparison. Being in New York for Fashion Week is like the ultimate. This is the fashion capital of the world so for me to be able to preview my line here, I feel like I’m on cloud 9. I need to go home and pinch myself, you know what I’m saying? Of course, my ultimate goal is to come back in February during the shows and do a full out presentation on the runway.
StyleList: How does your collection compare to Lisa’s “Closet Freak” collection? Sheree: Yeah, right … [laughs]. It doesn’t compare. I wish her well and wish her all the best, but it doesn’t compare.
You gotta love the cattiness. The clothes look a bit upgraded from she debuted in Atlanta back in May.
OK! Magazine caught up with Rachel, star of The Rachel Zoe Project, to ask her about it, she explained that she has no idea where the bad blood came from. “It was out of left field,” she told OK!
Bethenny’s Twitter comments included slams such as -
“Wondering if I’m the only one who can’t get over the self-important nonsense that is Rachel Zoe.”
“If I stick on a lampshade with a moo moo and a pair of bananas hoop earrings, rz may just D I E. What a bunch of BS!”
Rachel is however ready to put this all behind her, saying – “It’s so boring and uninteresting… I don’t find it fascinating at all. And, it was literally out of left field… I’m over it. I’m totally over it.”
This isn’t the first time Bethenny has slammed someone seemingly unprovoked, she did the same to her NY Housewives costar Jill Zarin just weeks ago.
It all started when host, Ellen DeGeneres, not so innocently asked about the wig-pulling episode that aired last month which involved bothKim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield. This led to Sheree calling Kim a habitual liar, and the topic quickly deteriorated into an argument about bounced checks, name calling, and accusations of affairs with married men.
Ellen tried to separate Sheree and Kim by sitting on the couch between them before cutting to commercial. Their appearance on the talk show was rather embarrassing to watch. Remaining housewives, Kandi Burruss, Lisa Wu Hartwell, and Nene Leakes, were mostly quiet throughout the entire segment.
Part of the argument included Kim accusing Sheree of self promotion for wearing her ‘She By Sheree’ earrings during her NOH8 campaign photo shoot. You can view the controversial NOH8 picture here.
Tell Us – What Are You Thoughts On Their Appearance? Should Sheree Have Worn Her ‘She By Sheree’ Earrings For The Photoshoot?
The topic quickly deteriorated into an argument about bounced checks, name calling and accusations of affairs with married men. Ellen tried to separate Sheree and Kim by sitting on the couch between them, but by time they cut to commercial, Ellen almost looked relieved.
More Bravo housewives are following in the steps of Kim Zolciak, by taking photos for the NOH8 campaign.
Gretchen Rossi, Sheree Whitfield, Dina Manzo and Kandi Burruss are the latest housewives to participate in the NOH8 campaign, in an attempt to promote themselves gay rights. Real Housewives of Atlanta’s honorable 6th housewife, Dwight Eubanks, gets in on the action as well.
The NOH8 (No Hate) campaign was created to help raise awareness for marriage equality in California.
Check out the photos of the remaining housewives below!
We now have the photos of Lisa’s line, and let’s just say some of her pieces should have remained in the closet. The above photo is pretty much as “good” as it gets.
When asked to describe her clothing line, Lisa says, “I wanted very classical, elegant pieces, but still a little flirtatious. I think these days a lot of women overexpose themselves to get attention.” The good news is wearing Closet Freakwill definitely get you some attention, though likely not the type of attention you were looking for.
This clothing line is in addition to Lisa’s many businesses – which include a jewelry line, real estate company, children’s clothing line, and any other business she decides to come up with while this post is being written. A reader once asked a good question, saying – “Lisa has a lot of businesses, but do any of them make her any money?” Interesting question indeed.
Photos of Lisa’s Closet Freak line is below. The 18-piece collection includes skirts, tops, jumpsuits and dresses.

Evicted Orange County housewife, Lynne Curtin, is now being accused of looting. Evidently Lynne was not only renting her home, but also some of the furniture in it. Lynne and her family moved out of their evicted home days ago.
The actual homeowner/landlord claims the Curtins stole a bookcase, credenza, armoire and a glass shelf — worth around $5,000 — and reported the alleged thievery to Laguna Beach Police Department Friday.
The homeowner also alleges the home’s carpet was trashed, there were holes in the walls and the travertine tub was damaged.
In a statement to TMZ, the homeowner says, “I am blown away that grown people can behave this way. They have daughters, how can they seriously think they are setting an example.”
TMZ is also reporting that this isn’t the first time the Real Housewives of Orange County star and her family have been evicted. Documents were dug up from 2003 that shows the Curtins were kicked out of a home for owing that homeowner: $9,104, an amount they allegedly never paid.
In the clip, Page is seen telling a(n) extremely really corny joke to Sheree while equally corny music and sound effects play in the background.
TMZ reports in the lawsuit, which was filed last week in State Court in Chicago, Page claims he never gave permission to Bravo to show his face on TV — and was assured by producers that he would be edited out of the show.
Page is suing Bravo and NBC for at least $50,000 for infringing on his Right of Publicity and for causing him “emotional distress.”
Something tells me this lawsuit will not go very far. Reality shows in general, especially the really popular ones such as the Housewives’ series, are notorious for getting release forms signed from any and everyone, before they can show their faces on TV.
They even make sure they get release forms signed from random people in the background of scenes. We should be hearing news that this lawsuit has been dismissed any minute from now.
Lisa Wu Hartwell recently spoke out on her desire to fight for custody of her two eldest children, but what she failed to mention was the reason she lost custody in the first place.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has always maintained she is uncertain as to the reason she lost custody of her 2 eldest sons back in 2003 to ex-husband, Keith Sweat. Keith is pictured above on the right, he received primary custody of the two boys.
Access Atlanta was able to get their hands on the custody ruling, which explains the reason Lisa lost custody.
Judge Cynthia D. Wright wrote -
“There is evidence that Father has been violent towards Mother, but no evidence he has ever been violent with any of his children.” The judge felt the children at the time “lacked structure in their lives, due in substantial part to Mother’s numerous business ventures and frequent trips out of town … Mother has a history of spending money on herself excessively rather than providing for the children … There was some evidence at trial that Mother implicitly participated in robbing Father in the presence of the children. She also took money from Father prior to the initiation of this matter. This behavior causes the Court to question Mother’s maturity and judgment.”
“Father is capable of providing a stable, secure home environment for the boys where their care is not delegated to random third parties.”
To sum this up, the judge felt that Lisa’s ex husband, Keith Sweat, who had been abusive to Lisa during their marriage was a better fit to parent the children than Lisa. Interesting.
