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?
CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON BELOW TO HEAR SHEREE’S SONG!
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!

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta was about new beginnings and leaving the past behind. Kim and Kroy welcomed their son into the world. NeNe went on her first post-separation date. Cynthia revisited NYC and Sheree made the difficult decision to take Bob to court over child support.
Kim is frantically on her way to the OB’s office with all her essentials in tow: make-up, designer luggage, oh and a wig! She discovers she has pre-eclampsia and her doctor decides to induce her at 37 weeks. Good thing she packed her wig!! Kim’s last delivery was like a Mack truck driving through her hooha and she is super nervous. Kroy isn’t stressed out; he’s relaxed and meditative just like before a football game. Sadly, a baby isn’t anything like football!

Sheree starts out by defending herself against accusations that her luxury dream house is a ruse created by the Bravomeisters for stroyline purposes. Unfortunately for Sheree, Atlanta blogger Tamara Tattles has been hot on her tail and revealing the truth about what goes on at the faux-chateau. After the blog revealed Andrew, the builder who’s been featured on the show, isn’t even a licensed contractor, Sheree is claiming she never intended for him to build her ballroom/skating rink anyways!
“The home building process requires a huge amount patience, planning, meetings, and self-control. People warned me that building a new home would be not only a huge headache but a slow detailed process, because contractors like to move at their own pace,” Sheree writes.
“To clear things up, Andrew is not my builder. He is someone that did some work for me in my clothing boutique years ago. We ran into each other when I began this project. I hired him to oversee the day to day progress when I am out of reach. Another story that I will go into later!” Uh huh… suuuure.
Now onto the dirt concerning NeNe, Sheree is not backing down and refers to NeNe as “delirious!” That’s a bit rich considering the source, but you know not exactly untrue.
“NeNe made a statement that I hit below the belt. This woman is delirious. Remember, I have known her untruths, her misleading behavior, and evil ways for quite a long time and have kept them quiet. I personally would have never gone there had she not started in with me,” Sheree insists.
“I do agree that once you go there, you open up a whole new can of worms. I don’t think she want those worms let out. I didn’t start it, I only finished. The hateful, mean-spirited way she reacted took it way past any possibility of reconciliation in the future.” Oooohhh… is that a promise or a threat from the former Mrs. Whitfield?
In response to Cynthia’s comments about her financial issues, (if you remember Cynthia wrote that the only thing she knows about Sheree is that she lost a house, a car, and a man), Sheree thinks Cynthia needs a little bit of educating!
“I have never, ever lost a house, nor was I repeatedly evicted from several houses (that was your girl),” Sheree seethes! “I did have a car that was paid in full seized which probably cost the amount of your home. Please don’t get that confused with a repossession (again that was your girl).” Sheree is obviously less embarrassed that her car was seized after she failed to pay her lawyer fees following a failed attempt to alter her divorce agreement so she could get a larger settlement.
“However, luckily for me,” Sheree continues, “I had another car I could fall back on. Don’t you and Peter share a car? I would hate to have to drop someone off or wait for someone to be done to move forward with their day. I love my independence and my freedom to move about, thank God for my other car.”
As for Cynthia’s comments that she “lost a man” Sheree is not taking that lightly and wants us to know the man actually lost her! “Honey, you are too old to speak on things you have no clue about or were not even around at the time to know the truth about. Stop listening to the haters,” Sheree slams!
“Now fortunately for me, I know my self-worth! I know what I deserve and what I will and will not put up with. And because of this, I left a man! Let’s get it straight. I decided to seek a divorce because I refuse to be in an unhealthy relationship. I believe in myself, my kids, and our happiness, and we deserved much better. Besides, being in an unhealthy relationship can lead to really dark eye circles, large bags, balding, and not to mention extreme low self-esteem. Honey, I don’t have time for any of that!”
Well, there you have it Sheree is perfect and impervious to any flaw! Sheree ends with this quote: ” ‘Your reputation is a reflection of who people THINK you are, but your character is a representation of who you TRULY are…’ ” So why is she pretending to be building a huge mansion and living the lifestyle of someone very rich if she doesn’t care about her reputation?
Anyways, moving on Cynthia despite taking a lot of flack about the less than stellar “preview” of Bar One featured on last week’s episode and her faux-ship with NeNe, she is defending both! In her Bravo blog, titled “Late Not Hate,” Cynthia reveals that she “loves” NeNe and that Bar One is a thriving business.
Cynthia insists Bar One is “doing great” despite some less than stellar Yelp reviews and that contrary to what her co-stars might think Bar One is not the ghetto. “Bar One is located in the Grant Park area in Atlanta,” Cynthia explains. “When did Grant Park become the hood? Oh, when Bar One opened up there of course.” Cynthia also wants us to know a bevy of celebrities have visited the venue, such as: Ludacris, Jill Scott, Tami Roman and many more — including Sheree (yes, Cynthia graciously included her in the celebrity list…).
And as for Phaedra Parks‘ comments referring to her husband Peter Thomas as a “hustler” and a “pimp,” Cynthia is kind of flattered! “I think this was actually meant to be a compliment,” she writes. “So I’m going to let this one slide. Thank you, I guess.”
Finally, Cynthia reacts to everyone’s comments that she is NeNe’s puppy and again she insists they are merely friends — true friends — and she didn’t particularly care that NeNe was late! “I love NeNe like a fat kid loves cake and Peter loves her too. Yes, Peter and I do love NeNe, and she loves us. We are just one big happy family, just loving each other to death.”
“I didn’t do or say anything when NeNe turned up late to Bar One. I would rather NeNe come late and show us love than be on time and hate. Who cares? Everybody is always late. What was I supposed to do? Jump on her like a spider monkey and beat the crap out of her? Oh, maybe I should have poured water on her shoulder. That would have taught her a lesson.” Buuuuurn!
She fires back at Sheree’s comments that they could only afford five-minutes of the very rich and famous NeNe’s time! “NeNe only gave us five minutes because that’s all we can afford. We can’t afford NeNe for more than five minutes, but we can afford to open two businesses at the same time. Hmm… Maybe if Peter and I save up enough money, we can also afford to put skating rinks in Bar One and The Bailey Agency.”
A new episode of RHOA airs tonight and Kim Zolciak finally goes into labor, but not without her wigs! Besties NeNe and Cynthia visit NYC where she gets a little advice from mogul Russell Simmons and Sheree’s child support drama continues! A preview clip is below!
RHOA airs on Bravo at 9/10 c.
DO YOU BELIEVE SHEREE’S EXPLANATION OF CHATEAU SHEREE? IS SHE ANGRY ABOUT CYNTHIA’S COMMENTS BECAUSE THERE MIGHT BE SOME TRUTH TO THEM OR IS SHE JUST DEFENDING HERSELF? IS CYNTHIA REALLY NENE’S PUPPY OR ARE THEY TRUE FRIENDS?

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta was all about changes, forgiveness and getting what you deserve. Sheree pulled a Tamra Barney and threw a drink on her ex-husband, Phaedra and Kandi begged forgiveness something desperate from Mama Joyce, who is both livid and embarrassed that reDICKulous appeared last week. Oh yeah, and we met Marlo Hampton. She has a husky voice I wasn’t expecting!
Things start out with everybody’s favorite southern bell doing a stop and drop apology by bringing Kandi an ‘I shouldn’ t have invited a disgusting porny stripper to your birthday party in front of your mama’ cake. Phaedra’s been giving out a lot of “I’m sorry” gifts lately, hasn’t she? According to Kandi her mama is still mad and won’t answer the phone!
The ladies are still confused that NeNe “former stripper” Leakes flew the coop without even saying good-bye. Apparently she couldn’t locate Kandi in the crowd since she took her eyeballs out. Phaedra is especially perplexed given that NeNe used to show her cervix for a quarter back in the day. Um, I’m pretty sure she was a stripper not a gynecological test subject, Phae!

According to the latest NeNe Leakes is not about to let Kim Zolciak one-up her in the spin-off department (remember how upset she got over Tardy For The Party!) and she is demanding her own show. With Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding — Kim’s one-season spin-off currently in the works to chronicle her wedding to Kroy Biermann — Star Magazine is reporting that the always big-hearted and supportive Ms. Leakes is beside herself with jealousy!
“She’s furious that Kim got her own show and she didn’t,” a source tells Star. Apparently NeNe has become quite the diva (oh, really?) ever since her rather volatile stint on Celebrity Apprentice. “She’s saying she’s too big for RHOA, and Bravo doesn’t pay her enough,” the source claims. The source adds that NeNe erroneously believes RHOA will “crumble” if she leaves and the show is “all about her.”
“NeNe has told friends if she doesn’t get what she wants, she will quit!” Would the fans really mind that? “She thinks she’s Madonna,” the source reveals which is the most laugh out loud, pee my pants quote I’ve ever heard from a “source”!
In fact, on a recent episode of WWHL, NeNe expected the star-treatment with a full list of over-the-top demands! “She insisted on her own, very expensive make-up artist, a stretch limo, and the presidential suite during her stay,” the insider asserts, adding that NeNe also requested Cristal Champagne but was rejected! BRAHAHAHAHA!
And while she was the consummate professional (ha!) on stage, things were quite the opposite behind the scenes. “She acted nice to host Andy Cohen while shooting but laid into him afterward and said she wants her own show,” the source alleges. Luckily for all of us, the mag is reporting that the Bravo execs are not likely to accommodate her given her recent behaviors! And in a recent interview Andy stated there are no plans for Kim’s spin-off to be permanent as he likes her on the “mother-ship.” Although if NeNe and Kim continue to refuse to film together things are going to get very interesting!
Upon being questioned by fans about the status of her new home, Sheree Tweeted: “not done yet, really just getting started! It’s been quite a handful… everyone’s on their own schedule & seem to have an agenda.” Basically, the house is in exactly the same condition as it was during filming!
The property that viewers have seen getting demolished over the last few episodes of RHOA was indeed purchased with the intent to build a new home — but it was not purchased by Sheree! Her mother, Thelma Ferguson, actually purchased the original house in a bank foreclosure for around $300,000 in Dec 2010, due to Sheree’s recent financial struggles. Sheree’s mother, Thelma is a successful author and MBA educated business woman who seems quite different from her gold-digging daughter. A copy of the deed is listed below.
If you remember Sheree had big hopes of getting a seven-figure divorce settlement from her ex-husband Bob Whitfield who owns a recording studio and is a retired Atlanta Falcons player. Sheree ended up getting a mere $1M and a portion of his pensions. Instead of paying the attorneys that defended her all the way to the GA Supreme Court, she purchased an Aston-Martin (featured on last season’s show) which was then seized!
As the original home on the Fulton County property was demolished it is now an empty lot on which Sheree owes quite a hefty mortgage. In addition to the rent on her townhouse (which is rumored to be paid by Bravo). How is Sheree financing all of this? She is apparently paying the mortgage on this now empty lot with the money she makes as CEO of her own company. Yes — I burst out laughing too, because Sheree has incorporated herself! According to the State of Georgia, Sheree is the owner, founder, and Chief Executive (and sole employee, it seems) of Sheree’ Corporation, which may or may not still be in business. Oh, ladies — just live within your means!
Also, interesting is the tale of Kandi Burruss‘ two birthday parties. While we all watched with horror as reDICKulous performed a dip n dick at Kandi’s birthday party last week, it appears that was merely a made-for-TV party arranged by Bravo! It turns out Kandi actually had another party which appeared classy, sophisticated and stripper-free!
Kandi’s real (re: Bravo-free) party took place at Straits Restaurant in Atlanta and featured quite an impressive guest list, including former Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell, Mama Joyce and Kandi’s daughter. The only Housewives-related guests were Phaedra Parks and Derek J (Kandi’s hairdresser)! Some photos of Kandi and Phaedra at Kandi’s real party are below!
Finally, a new episode of RHOA debuts tonight and we meet possible new Housewife Marlo Hampton, who happens to be dating NeNe’s ex-fling Charles Grant (isn’t she still married?). Cynthia Bailey continues to have issues with her family and her husband Peter Thomas. And Sheree confronts her ex-husband over child support issues. A preview of the new episode is below.
Episode five of Real Housewives of Atlanta airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c.
