There is a whole ton of false information floating around regarding the firing of Sheree Whitfield. Some sites seem to think that Sheree found out last night. Others think she was in NYC last night and left when she found out she was fired. Not true. Some of those sites found out last night. Sheree and all of Atlanta have known for weeks. Way back in this post I was trying to let my poor little knuckleheads down easy telling them to prepare for Sheree’s exit. Word has been all over Atlanta since the week before the reunion aired. It was said that Sheree was trying everything to stay. Sheree is one of the few housewives that doesn’t appear to have anyone negotiating for her. That was one of her problems. Another problem she has is that she is broke as hell and has no storyline. Let me break it down for you…
Bravo shows are all about people with money or people pretending to have money. As we saw this season, Sheree could not even fake it anymore. Production was not happy filming at her house with the air mattresses on the floor and the disappearing TV and game console. Blogs everywhere picked up my Chateau Sheree stories where it was made clear the property where the huge house with the roller rink was to be built was purchased in her mother’s name because Sheree has the worst credit on the planet. Her “contractor” is not licensed to design homes and is one of the many people with legal problems she tends to attract. Also her (alleged) property theft after being evicted from the marital property came to Bravo’s attention. She has also been sued by lawyers and others for outstanding debt and even had her Bravo paycheck garnished at one point. Despite my initial thinking that Bob Whitfield should have kept his kids in a house, the reality turned out to be that Sheree spent all the money from the divorce on an Astin Martin (until it was seized by the courts for outstanding debts) and Birkin Bags and clothes leaving the kids with no beds and some bologna sandwiches. Which reminds me of Sheree saying she did not eat processed foods on twitter the other day despite feeding them to her kids on the show. Speaking of Bob, no one wanted Sheree to be picked up again more than Bob. This could hurt him in their upcoming court date to reassess child support in June now that Sheree is unemployed.
Then there is the storyline problem. They tried the Chateau Sheree crap up until they realized that was not going anywhere. Yet another lie by Sheree. They even filmed Phaedra and Kandi out there looking at the dirt mound. Then there was the faked courtroom scenes and other appearances by Bob. Even Phaedra had trouble playing along with that one. Then she had a falling out with Lawrence (apparently he caused her hair to fall out) so they couldn’t do the gay friend scenes anymore. Then she remembered she had an adult daughter. Despite referring to Tierra as a “friend of the family” in the media and in previous seasons, she realized, probably after watching RHOBH Lisa planning a wedding for Pandora (who is rumored to be pregnant by the way), that if she could get her engaged she could do a wedding storyline. Suddenly she was best friends with Tierra and her boyfriend. But that didn’t work out. The only thing that worked out fairly well was the staged party in Africa and the shit stirring that she did there. Her shining moments were the fight with Nene on the first episode, the great race debate, and her fight with Marlo.
Where it seems to have broken down is during that week before the reunion when contracts were negotiated and finalized. There was some shred of hope for her staying up until that week. Apparently, she went into negotiations with an ego oblivious to the obvious fact her days were numbered. Instead of begging to be kept she acted like a diva and began making demands. Kim, Sheree and Nene were the only original housewives left. In general these three should have been able to negotiate from a place of strength. However Sheree had no strength because over the course of the show she lost her house, spent all her money, and had no social ties. If they were recruiting today (which they are/were) Sheree would not even be considered. So she blew it and she’s out. Sorry Sheree fans. You can look forward to her losing her mind on the reunion though, so there is that. Meanwhile, it looks like the answer to Sheree’s question, “Who gon’ check me boo?” is …Bravo.
