After four seasons starring on Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, Sheree Whitfield announced she will not be returning for a fifth season. ‘After four solid seasons of helping Bravo build the show into its most successful Housewives franchise, I have decided to leave,’ she said in an interview yesterday with Wetpaint.com. ‘The direction the show is going in is no longer a fit for my lifestyle. I’m tired of the fighting and the cattiness.’
We all know Sheree would never involve herself in any kind of cattiness or fighting… no, not Sheree. There was, of course, the time she tried to pull co-star Kim Biermann’s wig off during an altercation at the end of Season 2, and the time she cursed out co-star Nene Leakes at a wine bar and followed her out to her car to keep screaming at her.
And let’s not forget the time she threw water at ex-husband and former NFL player Bob Whitfield, or the time she accused Phaedra of not doing her job properly when court proceedings didn’t go her way. These are just a few among many other things that poor innocent Sheree has done, but hey, what’s a little hair-pulling in the grand scheme of things?
The point is, Sheree is moving on from the show, and hopefully onto bigger and better things. It has been a rocky road for the divorced mother of two since the show first premiered in 2008, between a failed clothing line, failed acting career and rumored financial difficulties after a bad divorce settlement. She appears to have a few plans in the works, though, such as revamping her clothing line venture, She by Sheree, from couture to fitness and athletic wear.
Do you think that Sheree has any market value outside of reality TV? If so, then what would that be? Let us know in the comments below.
