Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? I hate that phrase, but I have to imagine that’s the mentality the casting department had when they wanted to demote Sheree Whitfield to a “Friend of the Housewives” on Real Housewives of Atlanta. They could get her to instigate some drama between the cast without giving her the salary of a full-time cast member. After years away, the OG cast member made her return to the show as a “Friend of the Housewives” before she got upgraded to full-time again.
Sheree is great for stirring the pot and bringing issues to the forefront, but other than that she had pretty much no storyline on her own, hence the possible reason she was asked to downgrade her role on the show. Sheree’s pride got the best of her and she turned down that secondary role. Personally, I’m concerned about how she’s going to afford the baseboards and trim for that unfinished basement at Chateau Sheree. I’m also worried that there are no instigators left on this show.
Even though this hardly feels like “news,” it is officially official: Sheree Whitfield will not be on Real Housewives of Atlantanext season- in any capacity. She won’t even appear as a “Friend of the Housewives.”
How is she going to finish decorating Chateau Sheree? How is she going to occupy her time while she waits for her man to get out of prison? Why didn’t she want to just come on as a “Friend of the Housewives”? There are just so many questions. It’s also strange that she just confirmed this even though the writing has been on the wall for a while at this point.
At this point the three-part Real Housewives of AtlantaSeason 10 reunion is shaping up to be everyone vs. Kim Zolciak. Sure, there were other topics discussed, but those were just child’s play in comparison to the animosity between Kim and NeNe Leakes.
Plus, it seems like everyone on this show (minus Sheree Whitfield) has it out for Kim. Even Cynthia Bailey– the least shady person in the cast- is upset with Kim after Kim told her to “just be quiet and look pretty” and insisted that she meant that as a compliment instead of an insult. Yeah right…
Sheree has a boyfriend in prison, delusions of grandeur, several business aspirations that have not progressed (at all), and animosity with most of the other cast members. To me, that sounds like she has a lot to work with, but Sheree’s frienemy Kenya Moore strongly disagrees.
Whenever Andy Cohen and Sheree Whitfield share a stage, he always asks her “Are you wearing She By Sheree”? As the longtime Real Housewives of Atlanta viewers are aware, She by Sheree is Sheree’s clothing line that never really got started. She infamously had a fashion show without the fashions.
Usually Sheree just deflects from the questions, but during the first episode of the Season 10 reunion, she was not having it when Andy asked, “What happened to She by Sheree?” She didn’t take out her frustrations on Andy though. Instead she lashed out at Kandi Burruss, who wasn’t even trying to stir the pot or be shady. All she did was clarify Andy’s question, but Sheree didn’t respond to that well. At all.
The one person who was consistently bringing drama and good tea was Sheree Whitfield’s boo Tyrone Gilliams– and he was doing that all via collect call in a prison cell. He was bringing a lot more to the show than most of the full-time cast members, so I figured Sheree (and Tyrone by association) would definitely get asked back for Season 11. Apparently that might not be the case.
