Sheree Whitfield may not be a housewife anymore, but she still managed to get an interview this morning on HLN Weekend Express with Natasha Curry. Sheree was asked to talk about how real (or unreal) the Real Housewives of Atlanta and other reality shows are in the wake of the Storage Wars controversy over storage units being seeded with interesting finds. There was some RHOA footage of the “used” house getting bulldozed in preparation for the erection of Chateau Sheree but nary a word was spoken about the new house with the roller rink and a “lieberry.” That’s because there as been no more work done since my last update here. She did talk about Bob Whitfield, the pros and cons of being on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, whether she would do it all again, and of course, She By Sheree. Click on through for the tea!
The piece begins with the allegations made by a guy on Storage Wars about the show being fake. Sadly, it seems the producers seed the storage units which just ruins the whole show if you ask me. So Natasha asks how fake or how real are these shows? Sheree says she can’t speak for Storage Wars but that the Real Housewives of Atlanta are real! She says there are a lot of things that aren’t shown like going to the gym in sweats, taking her son to football practice or taking her daughter to horseback riding lessons because that is not great TV. The amusing thing about this is that while Sheree is talking about how very real everything is, the footage of Andrew the fake contractor tearing down the house where Chateau Sheree is supposed to be runs constantly in the background with the sound on low. So, at one point you can actually hear Sheree say, “lieberry” to Andrew during the interview. Priceless.
Natasha asked if the problems with Bob Whitfield were real. Sheree says it was “sooo real, and very painful and hard to watch.” Sheree says that since she has been off the show (she stammered over how to phrase the fact she got fired), she and Bob have been able to move past their issues and get along better. She claims that the show put extra weight on that relationship. Which is not true, Bob agreed to film for the show so that Sheree would have a storyline, and the resulting paycheck.
Natasha asked about the positives of being on the show? Sheree replied, ”Oh my gosh there are so many, well one is being able to connect with so many women, millions of women across the country that was either going through the same things I was going through or was able to relate to me in some kinda way. Also being able to build a very strong and loyal fan base, I’ve done. And build, build upon my brand, She by Sheree.” (sic) It is very hard to transcribe Sheree’s comments. They tend to wander all over the place.
Natasha interjects,” Oh, yeah, your clothing line we got to see! That was remarkable that you were able to put all that together. You also have a jewelry line! Tell us about that what all are you working on?”
Sheree says, ” I am working on lots of things, 2013 is going to be great! I just recently launched my She By Sheree jewelry collection which you can see by …She…www dot.. She… Natasha interrupts whooping over a pair of earrings with strings of tiny blue beads hanging off gold tone balls that has popped up on the screen. By the way, I think this should be called the blue balls collection if they are looking for a name. She has the same earrings on for the interview and points this out to Natasha. It seems she took them out after the interview for the picture above, probably so her ears would not turn green.
Natasha asks if these are all her inspirations. Sheree says, “Yes, these are all my inspirations. I was actually inspired by strong women…. women who…I created the line…uh..I got my inspiration for the line from women who …I draw inspiration for the line from women who inspire me.”(sic) Sheree is the world’s worst liar. She pulls out the black Kitsy Lane box with the name Kitsy Lane on it and gives the host a pair of earrings. Sheree doesn’t create, or become inspired by anything. In order to “have a boutique on Kitsy Lane” one does two things. First, you pick from the Kitsy Lane line of jewelry what products you want to hawk. Then, you use social media to draw people to your store AND most importantly to try to sign them up for their own store. It’s a
pyramid scam multi-level marketing company. It’s exactly like Tupperware. Everyone is selling the same Tupperware and the more people you bring into Tupperware the more money you make. She already tried one multi-level marketing “business” whatever happened to that plan?
Natasha asks if she would do it all over again and Sheree says, “Yes, I would do it over, it’s a good platform and I really had a good impact and um, hopefully positive impact on a lot of women.” The host thanks her for being there and someone offset tells her to say the link to the store. She tries a few times and sort of gets it out. It seems to be all the Ws that confuse her. Poor thing needed her Speak N Spell.
