On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim got ready for Kroy to leave for training camp and the rest of the ladies planned their trip to South Africa! NeNe decided to really stir up the drama by sneak inviting Marlo, and telling nary a soul, but Cynthia. And, oh my, were the ladies surprised, but not thrilled when Marlo joined them at the departure gate!
Things begin at Marlo‘s house, and ok, call me crazy, but I love the decor and the color scheme. NeNe is impressed that Marlo read Kim and Kandi the riot act at Cynthia‘s agency opening and definitely didn’t back down. On the tour, NeNe discovers Marlo has a full security system installed in her house, which she can monitor from her bedroom! Who is she, Drita D’avanzio? Is she mistressed to the mob in secret?

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta it was all about roots. Phaedra decided to plan a cast trip to Africa so the ladies could learn about their ancestry and Kim and NeNe met face to face for the first time in months and decided it should probably be the last.
Things start out with Kim hauling her infant to the gun range. Safety first! Kroy has decided Kim should learn how to shoot and get a gun. I guess she sometimes has to deal with a rampant moose. At first Kim is nervous, but then she gets into being a pistol packin’ mama! Kim gets a pink 9mm and while she doesn’t love having a gun, she’s into getting something pink. Next I am sure she will wrangle a LV gun case.
Cynthia and Peter are meeting Apollo and Phaedra for a double date to work things out following the husband’s altercation at Kim’s babyshower. Phaedra declares it is a “powder in your panties” kinda day, basically a typical hot summer day in the south. God I love southern summers. And friction, what friction? Because everyone is getting along great.

With Kim and new husband Kroy Biermann gaining their own spin-off on Bravo with Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding (brilliant!), one cast member isn’t sharing in Kim’s success. Nene Leakes, 44, who had her share of pseudo-success outside the Bravo bubble with her stint on Celebrity Apprentice, is reportedly less than thrilled about her former friend’s new found projects.
Sheree Whitfield tells Us, “When Kim told me she was getting her own show, in the back in of my mind, I was like, I don’t know if someone else is going to be too happy. Especially when she thinks that she’s the star of the show.” Whoever could she be referring to in those statements? Sheree even goes as far as to suggest, “I’m sure Bravo hears about it every day.” Sounds like Kim doesn’t even need to get in the ring, as she’s got Sheree “checkin'” Nene for her!
In fact, a report came out earlier this year stating The Nene was threatening to quit the RHOA if Bravo didn’t offer her a spin-off stat!
Speaking of Sheree, the 41-year-old designer also opens up to the magazine about her ongoing battle over child support with ex-husband and former pro NFL footballer Bob Whitfield, 40. The couple has been disputing Bob’s contributions (which according to Sheree are non-existent) to the pair’s two children Kairo and Kaleigh. Sheree, who for a brief period enlisted the legal prowess of cast member Phaedra Parks, shares, “We’re still going through [the courts].”
Sheree believes she has reason for her extreme frustration, revealing, “[Bob’s] telling the judge, ‘She has money. I don’t work. I’m retired for X amount of years.'” Um, it doesn’t matter how much either party is making — both of them created those children! Both are responsible for supporting them. She rants (understandably), “He’s healthy! Go get your ass a job!” You tell him! Sheree believes that Bob is extremely “cocky” about the fact he’s not making payments. That’s not good!
Finally, the magazine reports on purported tension between newlyweds Peter Thomas, 51, and Cynthia Bailey, 44. As you all remember, Cynthia just proudly opened her own modeling agency… while husband Peter critiqued her every move and left before his wife could even welcome the crowd. Peter isn’t the most beloved househusband (unless you’re Nene!), as he’s given negative interviews about his wife’s friends and got into a verbal altercation with Phaedra’s husband Apollo Nida at Kim’s baby shower! The nerve!
While on the episode Cynthia was very upset by her husband’s unexplained absence, Peter gives his side of the story to Us, stating, “I left because I was extremely tired. I didn’t think I would hurt Cynthia’s feelings. I am one hundred percent supportive of everything she does.” As for offending his wife’s cast mates, “If what I say rubs them the wrong way, that’s their problem!” That is one way to look at it, I guess.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE US WEEKLY REPORTS? IS NENE JEALOUS OF KIM’S SPIN-OFF? SHOULD BOB BE PAYING CHILD SUPPORT TO SHEREE? THOUGHTS ON PETER’S “SUPPORTIVE” HUSBAND ACT?
Man, I’ve missed Real Housewives of Atlanta while they’ve been on Holiday Hiatus. Come back to me soon crazies! In the meantime we’ll all have to console ourselves with some Atlanta gossip!
Sheree Whitfield has taken time out of her busy schedule of arguing with Bob Whitfield and lying about building Chateau Sheree to talk dating and her clothing line with Madame Noire! And Cynthia Bailey recently landed the cover of Denim Magazine looking amazing, where she also gave an impassioned testimonial about her friendship with NeNe Leakes!
Sheree’s sit down Madam Noire was all about the gossip surrounding the Housewife. According to Sheree, anytime she is seen with a guy there are rumors she is dating him — most recently Kermit Quinn from Blackstreet who she says is actually just a “good friend.” Poor Sheree complains that she “can’t even be seen with guys!”
There is one man she would like to be seen with though — the recently separated Kobe Bryant who she calls her “celebrity crush!” Oh, lord Kobe hide your wallet watch out! Sheree said she’s liked him because he seemed like a “great guy” and she fell for all his nonsense about respecting marriage, sadly she met him once and was so nervous she “clammed up.”
When asked which of her co-stars she would like to be stranded on a desert island with, Sheree says it would definitely be Phaedra Parks or Kim Zolciak because both of them are “funny as hell.” She also thinks Phaedra has a “good head on her shoulders” and the Southern Belle would be able to come up with shelter, etc for the stranded ladies. Sheree certainly didn’t feel so confident about Phaedra’s abilities when she was her lawyer!
As for her now shuttered clothing line, She by Sheree, Sheree promises it’s not dead yet! “She by Sheree got very, very expensive and I put a lot of my money into it. It is my passion, I love fashion,” she explains. Yet the company is moving in a different direction. “I’m actually in talks with a couple different people on bringing it back as a fitness apparel line. She by Sheree fitness with a DVD, kinda moving into the whole health and fitness arena.” I actually think this would be perfect for Sheree and I hope she does this!
Sheree tells us one of the unfortunate things about being a Housewife is dating! “Guys, when we go on a date — I don’t wanna talk about the show the entire date. I don’t wanna talk about those girls!”
“If you’re trying to date me, court me,” Sheree warns. “Let me know that you’re interested in me, not the girl you see on the show.” I agree – because the girl we see on the show can sometimes make a pretty bad impression — and that goes for ALLLL the ladies of Housewives.
“And of course, there’s no dates in Atlanta so I have to get it in when I travel,” Sheree complains, adding that it’s really tough balancing motherhood and entrepreneurship with dating. “I haven’t found anybody special, but I do try to, you know, meet different people.”
Another drawback to being on RHOA is that people always think they know you based on what they see on TV. Sheree says she always tries to “steer the conversation” in another direction and avoid discussing what viewers think they know about her life based on a television show. Is this Sheree admitting that storylines are fabricated?
Hopefully things will move in a more positive direction for Sheree in 2012. It was actually a great interview and surprisingly NeNe wasn’t mentioned once!
Speaking of NeNe, Cynthia recently talked her friendship with the infamous Ms. Leakes in an interview with Denim Magazine. Cynthia was on the cover looking insanely gorgeous. That cover is below. She had this to say about NeNe:
“NeNe and I are friends on & off the show. She has shown me nothing but love and loyalty. We connect because we are both strong and independent. There is zero jealousy and zero insecurity. We lift each other when we are down, and applaud each other when we are up.I love NeNe because she owns who she is, and I respect that.”
Not only does Cynthia love her some NeNe, Peter Thomas does as well! “My Husbandand NeNe also connect for the same reasons. Peter and NeNe are both straight shooters, and always keep it real. They are friends because they say what they mean and never apologize for being themselves. I love both for that.”
Interestingly enough MediaTakeOut is reporting that NeNe and Peter were once more than friends! According to one of their “trusted” sources, who is a former colleague of Peter’s, they used to be an item a few years ago!
“This was BEFORE he met Cynthia,” the insider discloses. “Peter was a ladies man and dated a lot of women, NeNe was one of many… it wasn’t serious.” No word if this relationship happened before NeNe was married to Gregg?
Even worse, Cynthia has no idea about their past involvement! “Peter is not one of those KISS AND TELL guys, I’m sure he never told Cynthia.” But what of her good friend NeNe — Does she owe it to Cynthia to fess up? Poor Cynthia if this is true.

After Phaedra agreed to represent Sheree in her child support case with ex-husbandBob Whitfield, the ladies eventually decided to end their professional relationship amicably as Sheree felt Phaedra was outsmarted by her ex in court. Many felt Sheree was ungrateful as there was nothing Phaedra could have done to prevent her ex from filing an order of contempt against her.
During her appearance on the Watch What Happens Live Aftershow on Sunday night, Sheree went into more details about why she felt Phaedra didn’t represent her well. Sheree’s defense is that Phaedra volunteered to file a contempt motion on her behalf (didn’t she tell Phaedra NOT to file???), but Bob beat her to the punch two weeks later because Phaedra was waiting to get clearance for Bravo cameras.
“I never met with Phaedra outside of your cameras. So to me when I’m meeting with her, and I’m saying this is my life. Like even if the cameras are not there, what you’re supposed to do, I still need you to do it,” said Sheree.
Sheree also talked about Phaedra’s employees hounding her to get the retainer. “I love Phaedra. I didn’t want to end it in a bad way but it didn’t sit well with me when it kind of made it seem like they were hounding me, asking me, trying to get this money when that is not the case. When Phaedra asked me for the money, it was the day before… She had her people call me… I get a phone call. They’re like we need the money. I never got a contract. I never got any kind of paper work,” said Sheree.
“The money part came in after Bob filed because it takes it to a whole other level. Before it was something very simple when she volunteered to file the contempt but she never did it because the cameras couldn’t get to her in time,” continued Sheree.
Sheree adds that by the time they went to court a month later, Phaedra had still yet to file anything. “The only time Phaedra and I met off camera was with another attorney who is a family attorney who was actually coaching her on how to handle my case,” added Sheree.
And on the actual WWHL show, Sheree fired back at the criticism that she shouldn’t be suing for child support if she can afford expensive items such as a Hermes bag, designer clothes and a Porsche to replace her old seized Bentley.
“This is the ignorant thing that I hate to hear people say,” said Sheree. “Why are you fighting for child support? First of all, I did not make these kids by myself. We did this together. So I shouldn’t have to fight you to be responsible for your kids.”
Meanwhile, Sheree also debuted her new song “Who Gon Check Me Boo” on WWHL. Some are calling it a diss track to her costarNene Leakes though Sheree denies the allegations. We’ll let you be the judge! Below is Sheree’s song!
In other RHOA news, former show extra cast member Dwight Eubankswas arrested yesterday.
MyFoxAtlanta reports the arrest was made after a traffic stop where Dwight told the cop he didn’t have his driver’s license on him. The cop conducted a check and discovered Dwight’s license was suspended, after which Dwight was taken into custody.
Dwight’s license suspension came about when he failed to appear in court for a previous unresolved matter. He has a court date set for February.

TELL US – AFTER HEARING SHEREE’S SIDE, DO YOU THINK PHAEDRA REPRESENTED HER WELL? THOUGHTS ON SHEREE’S SONG & DWIGHT’S ARREST?

On last night’s Real Housewives of Atlanta the ladies don’t disappoint. Cynthia Bailey opens her modeling agency, while Kandi Burruss consults with a country star. Sheree Whitfield and Phaedra Parks part ways professionally and Kim Zolciak is movin’ on up, Jefferson’s style. Nene Leakes also makes an appearance.
The episode begins as Sheree comes to Phaedra’s office to discuss her child support case. Phaedra feels that the hearing went very well, while Sheree is concerned that her case is flailing. Phaedra tries to explain the law to her client and defends her representation to a doubtful Sheree. Sheree thinks that the pair was blindsided in court, and they squabble about when the retainer was paid. Phaedra doesn’t want this case to come between her and her friend, so the ladies decide to end their business relationship with Phaedra referring Sheree to a different attorney. The duo part ways amicably (for now), with Sheree wishing her two-day lawyer had accomplished more and Phaedra wondering what kind of service her friend expects after hiring her twenty-four hours (give or take) in advance. WWJJD? (Judge Judy…in case you were wondering!)

Sheree Whitfield‘s custody case is the hot story to keep her relevant this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Sheree is accusing her ex-husband, retired NFL player Bob Whitfield (a.k.a. Head Butt Bob), of refusing to pay child support and owing hundreds of thousands in back child support over four years. Many have found it odd that Bob would allow his deadbeat dad behavior to be flaunted on national television and, as is always the case, there seems to be much, much more to the story than meets the eye!
On the surface Sheree’s case seems cut and dry so her attorney, friend and co-star Phaedra Parks opted to take on the case pro-bono. When Phaedra suggested Sheree simply alert the authorities to Bob’s negligence, Sheree looked squeamish and immediately vetoed that idea, leaving many — including her attorney — perplexed. Sheree claimed she would not feel right putting the father of her children in jail. But is that really the reason she didn’t want Bob to hear that “clank-clank”?
Interestingly, last episode Phaedra decided to charge Sheree a $5000 retainer fee, claiming that her case became more challenging which would necessitate a lot more work on her part. Also interesting, Bob filed a motion against Sheree placing her in contempt for allegedly stealing furniture that was granted to him in the divorce decree. And that is just the tippity, tip, tip of the iceberg!
There has looong been the rumor that Sheree basically stripped the mansion she and Bob resided in during their marriage of all it’s fixtures after Bob allowed it to fall into foreclosure and Sheree plus children were evicted. Tamara Tattles gave an in-depth report of the situation on her blog which, is the first red flag in the complicated case of Sheree Whitfield vs. Bob Whitfield and the mystery of the child support case.
First, in an odd sequence of information that doesn’t add up, StraightFromTheA discovered that Phaedra is no longer representing Sheree according to the Fulton County Court Modification documents. Was it because she couldn’t afford her rates? The defendant’s lawyer is clearly listed as Joy Nicol Hanyard. The real question is did Phaedra ever represent Sheree or was that added for dramatic purposes? Tamara Tattles has already alerted us that the presiding judge seen on last week’s episode of RHOA is not the actual judge whose courtroom was featured (nor the judge listed on this document). A copy of that document is below.
StraightFromTheA, an Atlanta blog known for getting the scoop, did more digging and found that the case between Sheree and Bob is absolutely 100% real and not created for RHOA — however the case that we are seeing played out on TV is very different than the behind the scenes situation. Apparently Bob is tired of being depicted as the miscreant father and first-rate a-hole. Speaking to the blog he is giving his side of the story!
Calling the situation a “hot mess”; he also takes issue with Phaedra claiming he looked a “hot mess” in court (is that the adjective of the week?)! Bob claims that ugly wrinkled shirt he wore in the court scene was actually a $300 Robert Graham shirt and he was not trying to look like a “hobo” but it was too hot for a suit and his iron was “so raggedy.” Yes, this man went to Stanford.
Bob also admits that sticking out his tongue makes him look like such a “smug bastard” and he also admits that he does, in fact, “know people” at the court as Sheree said. As for Sheree, Bob reveals, she doesn’t know “when the truth starts and when the lie begins.” He also comments on Chateau Thelma Sheree, wondering why she has that “mound of dirt.” The conversation is a little difficult to decipher, but if you don’t mind Bob’s filthy mouth, it’s worth a listen!
So what is the truth behind all the acrimony and the reason why Bob is refusing to pay his ex-wife court-ordered child support? According to MediaTakeOut, Sheree actually owes Bob a butt load of dollars! After sifting through some court documents, here’s what they discovered: “When Sheree and Bob got divorced, the court ordered them to SELL the house, split the proceeds. And for Bob to give Sheree $425K in additional cash. Bob would pay her $25K up front, and the other $400K once they sold the house. Well Sheree TRICKED Bob, and asked him if he could give her the $400K early, so that she could get a home for their children.”
“And after Bob gave her the money, Sheree filed MULTIPLE lawsuits, and refused to leave the house or pay the mortgage. Eventually the bank foreclosed on the house, and Bob lost ALL the equity he had in the home.” Bob took Sheree to court over the matter and Sheree was “admonished,” yet not charge according to the court documents. Perhaps this is why she lost all of her appeals for spousal support? Sheree never paid Bob back for the money lost as a result of her refusal to honor the agreement. And that clears up why the house fell into foreclosure.
Essentially if Sheree attempts to take Bob to court for the lost child support, he can counter-sue for all the money he is owed. A copy of the court documents obtained by MediaTakeOut are below. Also, below is a photo of the home which Sheree was shown living in on the first and second season of RHOA.
Perhaps this is the real reason Sheree is not getting child support! Sheree has not commented on the reality of her situation on Twitter or her Bravo Blog!
THOUGHTS ON THE DETAILS REGARDING SHEREE’S LEGAL SITUATION? IS BOB RIGHT TO REFUSE TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT IN LIGHT OF ALL THE MONEY SHE ALLEGEDLY OWES HIM?

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Bob took Sheree to court, Phaedra got played by Bob, Kandi talked her new self-pleasure line and Kim struggled for her daughter to accept KJ.
Things begin with Phaedra and Sheree meeting to discuss Bob’s modification of child support. Phaedra explains it will be a very engrossing process with a lot of sorting through everyone’s business. Sheree is emotional because it is dealing with something very dear to her heart: her money, according to Phaedra. Sheree is still unwilling to put Dead Beat Head Butt Bob in jail for back child support, but Phaedra promises to be the diligent legal eagle and get her the justice she deserves!
