Rumor has it that Sheree Whitfield has been fired from the Real Housewives of Atlanta franchise. The former wife of Bob Whitfield was apparently called in to her usual annual meeting with Bravo to discuss the upcoming year and that’s when the network broke the news that her presence would no longer be required on the reality show.
The twist to this bit of gossip are allegations that Nene Leakes, arguably the most popular person on the show now, is responsible for convincing the powers that be to let Sheree go, telling them that it would be either her or Sheree. If you’ve followed this season’s action, the former friends fell out over a business deal gone bad and are no longer in each others’ lives. However, relations between the two remain cordial, so the rumor mill says that Nene’s desire to dominate the show is what motivated her to orchestrate Sheree getting the boot.
This season of RHOA hasn’t been much to write home about, and even the same old drama has the looming oddness of Sheree’s decline from a thriving businesswoman living off of alimony to her rocking high-end fashions while her child sleeps on an air mattress. Even her beef with Nene was early in the season, and it seems that she’s been drumming up drama — for example, starting controversy between Kim and the other cast members. Is Sheree’s role on RHOA getting tired? Will her absence affect the show?
