A recent article in Glamor magazine interviewed some “housedaughters” from Bravo including Vicki’s daughter Briana, Luann’s daughter Victoria, Lisa’s daughter Pandora, Caroline’s daughter Lauren and Sheree’s daughter Tierra. I for one am shocked about that last one. If you recall back in season one, Sheree did an interview with Essence magazine that included still from the show. In one of the pictures Tierra was identifed as a “family friend.” Sheree went to great lengths not to admit that she was a teen mother. Then again in season two, Tierra came to the “fashion viewing” for She By Sheree and there was another controversy over Tierra. I believe that she was entirely cut out of the scene if I remember correctly. Also, in earlier Sheree posts on this blog, Tierra’s college friend posted that Tierra was really suffering financially while in college and her mother refused to help her out at all. I’ve read several places that Tierra was eating ramen noodles (like most college kids actually) and putting herself through school without a dime of help being offered from her Birkin bag. Click through to see what Tierra has to say…
I find myself getting very angry when I watch the show. Then I’ll talk to my mom, and she’s like, “You know, you can’t get too emotional about it.” The whole Marlo thing was hard for me. [In season four, Whitfield and cast mate Marlo Hampton engaged in a screaming match over a snubbed dinner invitation.
] That fight was really intense. You want to protect your family, and that’s my mom! If I’m watching and something goes down, I’ll send her a text, like, “Wow, why did you two start arguing? Did that really happen?” And then she’ll give me the background.
So she asked her mom if she really hangs out at Onyx with drug dealers?
I was only on the show a few times, but the city of Atlanta isn’t that big, so I get a lot of recognition—especially the first season that I was on. Anytime I went out, people would come up to me like, “Oh my God, you’re Shereé’s daughter!” One time I went back to Nashville for the TSU homecoming, and this older lady came up to me and was like, “Can I get your autograph?” People still give autographs? I thought that was weird.
A woman approached me about being on another reality show. It was going to be about people my age being spoiled, always getting what they want. I guess they didn’t end up selling the pilot, but I was interested. My boyfriend, Damon, and I spoke about doing our own reality show. I think it’s not a bad idea. I like Bethenny Ever After and Khloé and Lamar. My mom is doing her thing; I’m trying to get her to make her own workout DVD or her own juicer. A lot of opportunities come out of reality shows, and my mom is my role model. [Glamor]
Well that is sad. It seems on the show like Tierra might have some sense but in this interview she didn’t have anywhere near the insight that the other girls have. It’s sad especially that she was interested in being on a show for spoiled children. Like mother like daughter. She certainly does not fall into that category based on the word around town. People seem to really feel sorry for her because of her mother.
She seems to be dreaming with regard to her own reality show. Why do I feel like Sheree encouraged Tierra and Damon to get engaged for the finale of the show in hopes of a wedding for season five? It’s sad. At least she understands that her mother should have been starting some business ventures related to working out. The DVD and juicer both would have been marketable before she got fired. I really feel for a young woman whose mother is her role model when that woman is Sheree. Sheree didn’t raise her, ignored her, denied her and then used her for a reality show. That was their relationship. She also failed to get an education, is unemployable and married a man for his money. When the marriage ended she dragged it out all the way to the supreme court and violated court orders by removing property that did not belong to her. She spent all her money on herself (in excess of a million dollars) while failing to provide even the basic necessities for her youngest children. What exactly does she look up to about her mother? Bless her heart.
