Following weeks of speculation, Sheree Whitfield has announced that she is indeed leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Making the revelation via Wet Paint, Whitfield 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.”
According to the report, the socialite will instead focus on her hot to trot clothing line, She by Sheree as well as also embarking on a new fitness venture to inspire people to live healthier lives.
Needless to say, this won’t extinguish the fervent claims that was in fact sacked from the hit show.
Whatever the case, I’m gonna miss Sheree. Yes, I’m in the minority and yes it is likely a case of “rooting for the underdog”, but something oft made my feel sorry for her.
Clearly financially lacking (or at least compared to her co-stars), she’d oft play the role of that chick in school who would lie about what she had to fit in. Only to still get dragged.
And then there’s the drama-stirring. It’s essentially the ethos of whole show, however on far too many occasions, Sheree would attempt to tick that quota only to be reduced to a mumbling fool before being eaten whole by NeNe – case point the reunion special (click here to watch).
That said, what’s is done. Here’s wishing her the best moving forward.
