Sheree Whitfield Says Sayonara to “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”
“Who gon’ check me, boo?” Well, not Sheree Whitfield.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) is losing a cast member. On Wednesday, (allegedly) cash-strapped socialite Sheree Whitfield confirmed that she is joining DeShawn Snow and Lisa Wu Hartwell as the latest ATL Housewife to depart the popular Bravo series.
Though Sheree wouldn’t be back for another cycle of catfights, foreclosures and repossessions when RHOA premieres its fifth season, she says the decision to leave was her own. In a statement, the sometimes fashion designer and wannabe actress said:
“After four solid seasons of helping Bravo build the show into its most successful ‘Housewives’ franchise, I have decided to leave. The direction the show is going in is no longer a fit for my lifestyle. I’m tired of the fighting and the cattiness. I want to be part of something that empowers and inspires women to not only be healthy, but to treat themselves with respect. I wish the rest of the women the best of luck. I’m thrilled to say I’m now a free agent and am already fielding offers.”
Rumors about Sheree’s possible replacement have already begun heating up The Rumor Mill. Monyetta Shaw, the fiancee of singer/producer Ne-Yo, is reportedly a front runner.
