Sheree Whitfield is on HLN this morning looking NOTHING like she looked in court yesterday. Is that a wig or did she go to Derek J this morning? Sheree is saying that her kids were not shown a lot on the show because she wanted to make sure they had a sense of normalcy. She says we all know that well-balanced kids don’t make great TV. (She left out the part about how well-balanced adults don’t either which is why she was on for so many seasons.) She says it was important to keep that balance with her kids of “school, family, friends.”
They ask her about the divorce “where he (Bob) didn’t want to pay.” What were the other kids at school saying about that? Sheree said, ” It was hard, even if they didn’t see it at my house, because I did not talk about what their father was doing, they did get it at school.”
Now they are talking about bloggers going on her property trying to get scoop. The host says she had to put restraining orders against “them.” You start thinking about your safety for your family.

Sometimes the bloggers and some of the press, they overstep their boundaries.” Q: So what did you tell your kids? A: “You have to be careful! You have to constantly watch your back. I can do all I can when they are in my presence to protect them, but they have to learn how to….(trails off, host asks new question). Q: Was there ever an upside from doing this? A: “An upside? As far as the kids? I think the kids, I think that my son has always been very quiet. I think it made him a little more social. ” [commercial Break]
After the break they asked Sheree about other reality shows. Apparently Tori Spelling is divorcing and Sheree says she just found out about that this morning and that divorce is hard for anyone. They ask what she thinks of Kris Jenner and she says, “I think Kris is …(other hosts interrupt). Giulianna Rancic? Sheree likes her. They end saying they hope Sheree will come back and she says she will.
