A reader stopped by Chateau Sheree today to check out the progress. It doesn’t look like there really is much. I can’t remember if I told you this before or not, but a couple of weeks ago, someone who works at a kitchen cabinet place emailed me to say the Sheree was there and bought thousands and thousands of dollars of cabinetry. The person said that it seems like she must have two kitchens in there. The person also said that she asked about selling some cabinetry that she already had. I assume that is some of the stuff that she put in storage after stripping the Long Island Drive house bare. Well, I just looked at the post with those photos and it looks like she did leave the cabinets there. No idea where she got the ones she wants to sell. Continue reading
Things continue to plod along over at Chateau Sheree and TamaraTattlles.com readers from the area continue to keep me updated. It seems the electricity is finally working so Sheree can get used to paying for utilities on this monstrosity.
Reports are that the landscape was looking a bit rough and that someone drove off in a U-Haul and locked the gate just before this picture was taken. There was no work being done. It’s Spring Break in the ATL so I’m sure Sheree is off somewhere with her children discussing the lieberry and skatin’ rink finally coming to fruition. Continue reading
Methinks perhaps Patti was fishing in the wrong pond… Photo by Bravo via Social Media
You would think after the infamous appearance that Sheree Whitfield made on Iyanla Vanzant’s Fix My Life Show where Iyanla gave up and declared that for the first time she had a guest that was unfixable (I’m not kidding go here if you missed it) and that everything in Sheree’s life including “Chateau Sheree” was incomplete, Sheree would stay off reality TV and stop embarrassing herself. But no. Two years later, her we go again.
We start with Sheree talking to production about her “search for love.” I am struck by how masculine she looks. She works out a lot and I wonder if she takes steroids. It reminds me of the time a drag queen died and someone accidently used Sheree’s photo on the TV Guide obituary. The poor people at TV Guide had to write a retraction but, it really was an honest mistake that anyone may have made. Sheree says she is not in a relationship because she is busy teaching “boot camps.” I’ve not heard a soul in Atlanta mention that including Sheree on her social media. That is what she should be doing but I seriously doubt she is.
Patti says that, “Sheree was married to Bob Whitfield and it ended really badly and I don’t think she ever recovered,” as if the relationship ended badly because of Bob. The relationship ended badly because despite Bob giving Sheree a seven-figure divorce settlement as she pined for on the first season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, she squandered all the money by insisting on appealing the generous settlement and attempting to take the case to the Georgia Supreme court. The attorneys’ fees and the cars she purchased ate up all the money resulting in the viewers of RHOA seeing Sheree and the kids living in an apartment with what appeared to be air mattresses ( or dog beds according to Sheree’s explanation) on the floor in the kid’s bedroom and disappearing TVs and gaming systems. Here are the real details on Sheree’s divorce. Perhaps Patti should have read about all that first. Continue reading
House bought in December of 2010 by Sheree’s mama, This is August 2012
Another holiday season has passed with no Chateau Sheree open house Christmas party. Last night on WWHL, Andy asked Miss Lawrence if Sheree was living in her Chateau and he hemmed and hawed and said he thinks she might be he’s not sure. Um, I’m sure.

A lot of times when people try to send me some tea, they can’t seem to be bothered to email me, they simply try to post a comment on a post. Yesterday afternoon, someone with a nonsensical name with a nonsensical email tried to comment on a Chateau Sheree post from months ago that. “Chateau Sheree is infested with cops.” I found the comment interesting so I went to check it out. I contacted a couple real housewives in the hood that keep in touch with me to verify. Ironically, both of them were at urgent care. It seems that this crap I’ve got and affectionately call “ebola” is making the rounds all over town and the fancypants crowd were all at the doctors. Thankfully, one was leaving and swung by to take the above picture and both checked with neighbors who said no one was there all day at all.
At any rate, it was a great reminder that I have not used any of the random pictures y’all send me on the “progress” in months. As the four year anniversary approaches of Sheree buying a perfectly good house and bulldozing it, we seem to be inching closer to a habitable house for the churren to have their skatin’ rink in (perhaps that explains why nearly every room is in a turret?) and for Sheree to sit in her lieberry and read Shakespeare. Pauses for Sheree fans to correct my spelling by using their Sit n Spell. Continue reading
Okay, it’s time for two long hours of Kandi’s wedding. The Bravo Buffoonery continues with Bravo adding two minutes to the DVR in front of the show and two minutes behind. WTF? We begin at the rehearsal dinner and none of the grooms or groomsmen are there. Kandi calls Todd and they argue on the phone while the dinner guests gossip. Kandi looks like a major fool. I’m not sure I can do two hours of this tomfoolery. Mama Joyce and Kandi speak their family language discussing the pre-nup. We need subtitles. Apollo tells Todd this is partly his fault. I’ve said it many times Kandi had no business marrying today. She doesn’t understand that marriage is a partnership. If she doesn’t want to go into a business arrangement with Todd, she had no business marrying him. Marriage is a business deal. Many of Todd’s groomsmen tell Todd not to sign it.
Mama Joyce goes to Kandi’s dad to get him to tell Kandi not to get married without the pre-nup. Mama Joyce is gloating in her talking heads. Todd, you need to run! RUN NOW! Save yourself, Todd! Todd’s mom says they need to due a post-nup and get this stuff straightened out. Todd tells the boys he can’t live without Kandi. Yes you can, Todd. Yes.You.Can.
Todd goes over to the house to fix things with Kandi. Todd says if she fixes the 30 day thing and the will issue then they can move forward. Kandi agrees. Fun fact: Stephanie Casteel was one of Sheree’s lawyers that she used to set up her shell LLC. She had to testify in court that Sheree had some sort of ownership of the Chateau. Stephanie is super nice. I hope she eventually got paid. But I doubt it. Allegedly.
Todd has a 17-year-old daughter? Is this news? I don’t recall knowing this info. Is that his only daughter? I thought he had one closer to Riley’s age. Oh! I think we all thought one of Riley’s play dates was his daughter once. That must be the source of my confusion.
The bridesmaids are getting ready. Tasia brought a back up dress because no one has been fitted by Reco and they still don’t have dresses. Kandi had programs for her wedding. This is a new thing, I reckon. I think my nephew had one at his wedding. I seem to recall the whole foot-washing thing being on there.
Kandi is prettier without make-up in my opinion. Continue reading

So Far in Mexico, the only shade Nene is throwing is from her sombero!
These shows are always boring so I am not particularly excited by this episode. That said, production sure did seem to enjoy calling out Nene on her lies with unseen footage on the reunion, so they may surprise us with something interesting. Meanwhile, my new DVR refuses to record RHOA. I can’t say that I blame it.
Oh really Andrew, we are going to talk about Nene and her being such a good friend? Andy asks what happened to all the furniture that Kenya gave (loaned?) Nene when she was in LA. Nene immediately starts saying it was just a bunch of crap. Apparently, Kenya sold her a TV and some other items. Who cares? Next they roll tape of Nene and Kenya getting along and Kenya talking about her boyfriend. Kenya’s in love and her man cannot leave Nigeria, so it’s a problem. Apparently, the sex is great. We find out her man is in his 30s.
Kandi has been a good friend and a mentor to Porsha. They show a package about the two girls. OMG, Rickey Smiley let Porsha try to do the news on the air on his radio show. The girl cannot read, y’all. How is she supposed to report the news? Porsha is the Sonja Morgan of RHOA, she has all of these imaginary businesses she is going to get going very soon. Porsha and Kandi sing a little bit of His Eye is On the Sparrow, and I gotta say, Porsha sounded good especially with no music and no autotune. Continue reading

Chateau Sheree March 2014
What better than a Chateau Sheree update to celebrate April Fools Day! This is an actual real update that I just saved for today since today has the whole fool theme. Before we talk about current “progress” on the perpetually incomplete structure, let’s see how far it’s come over the years.
The story begins on December 30, 2010 when the property is purchased by Sheree’s mama, Thelma for $319,000. At this point there was a two story fixer upper already on the property. Eventually, there would be a partial demolition on the property. Why a partial? Who knows, but it certainly set the glacial pace of things to follow. The good news for the people who wait at the bus stop right there on the corner is that part of what was demolished was a bathroom wall leaving a toilet exposed to the street. So if they just had to go, during this time all they had to do was walk right up to that toilet! It was a service to the neighborhood really. Continue reading
Well my feral readers, we have made it through another year. And as usual I, and sometimes a select few of you, have sent some folks into a frenzy that required them to post that they we leaving us, and that we would never, ever, EVER be getting back together. And yet, I can’t remember a single one of them. Can you? I can’t remember much of last week at this point, to be honest. So I decided to take a look at my stats and see what our top five posts of 2013 were. It’s kind of a strange bag. Are you ready for a walk down memory lane?
NUMBER 5: Kenya Moore Bids Farewell to RHOA.
Yeah, okay so I was wrong about that one. I prefer to think of it as wishful thinking. But you have to admit that Kenya Moore bid a fond farewell to every cast member, pet, cameraman, member of the press, and each and every one of us by name in her final blog last season. What was the point of all of that if she wasn’t really leaving? To be honest, Kenya is starting to grow on me this season. Just a touch. Continue reading
TamaraTattles makes every effort to insure the publication of factual information. In a post made on August, 15, 2013 entitled Chateau Sheree is in Foreclosure we relied on a source who purported to be a licensed real estate agent for the detailed information that supported the contention that the property we refer to as “Chateau Sheree” is in foreclosure. Our source had detailed information about loan amounts and cited other documents available to real estate professionals that presumably inform them before the public records update of properties available for purchase. At the time of publication, we believed these documents to be true and accurate. Continue reading
While I have been offline the people who actually live in the neighborhood of Chateau Sheree have been furiously emailing me. If you Google Lake Forrest Drive ( I believe her home is at 5210 Lake Forrest Drive… I NEVER DISCLOSED IT UNTIL SHE PUT The address of MY SHACK ON THE INTERNET) but whatever. EVERYONE is mocking her while wishing she would get the fuck out of the neighborhood (which she has. She lives in an apt WAY WAY WAY out of the school district she was trying to stay in, Gee I hope they don’t find out.)
Anyway, the news is twofold. Not a damn thing has been done. However in her defense it has rained so much this summer that our gardens are literally rotting. IT HAS RAINED A FUCKING LOT.
This has caused mudslides on her road. So Lake Forrest is shut down for at least a year while they try to put in a retaining wall. Continue reading
