I am in shock! I just read on MSN Entertainment that Sheree Whitfield is leaving Real Housewives of Atlanta. Okay, so after the news had some time to sink it, I guess I wasn’t THAT surprised, but it’s still newsworthy. Wetpaint revealed and Bravo confirmed that Sheree has indeed quit. Sheree was quoted in Wetpaint:
“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.”
The reason I am not surprised is because she has been under a lot of scrutiny this season as to what she does with her money, how broke she is, how she had her car repo’d, her “Chateau Sheree” has had construction stalled. The girl needs to get it together and not have her life under the microscope for people to tear apart. It has to be hard trying to “keep up with the Joneses” when she has no money to speak of. Also, I suspect that Bravo was getting ready to fire her because her storyline has become very dull and this way she pre-empted them from doing it.
Good luck in the future, Sheree! I respect you for going out with some class!
