Sheree Whitfield Leaving 'Real Housewives'
'Atlanta' cast member confirms that she's exiting series after four seasons
What was revealed Tuesday via Wetpaint, Bravo officialy confirmed Wednesday -- that Sheree Whitfield is leaving "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast after four seasons.
The ex-wife of former NFL player Bob Whitfield and frequent sparring partner of fellow castmate NeNe Leakes took to the web on Tuesday to explain her decision. She stated, "After four solid seasons of helping Bravo build the show into its most successful 'Housewives' franchise, I have decided to leave. The direction the show is going in is no longer a fit for my lifestyle. I’m tired of the fighting and the cattiness."
Perhaps this will give her more time to complete the many projects she so famously began on camera during her four-year run on the show, including her clothing line, She by Sheree. "I want to be part of something that empowers and inspires women to not only be healthy, but to treat themselves with respect," Whitfield continued. "I wish the rest of the women the best of luck. I’m thrilled to say I’m now a free agent and am already fielding offers." Wetpaint reports that Whitfield is also focusing on a new fitness venture.
Bravo released confimation of her departure on Wednesday: "We have enjoyed working with Sheree as part of 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta,'" it read. "We wish her all the best in the future."

"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" reunion continues Thursday, April 19, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
Forget Sheree, Nene is the most despicable humane being. How does she is get away with that "JIVE' talk. She is very ugly and no money can change that. She openly critized Sheree about her house not being finished. That only proves that she has some serious issues, that the only thing that makes her happy is seeing all of her friends "fail" that includes all of you if you were on the show. It is obvious that she has a jealous heart and is ready to step on anyone who gets in her way. What you wish for others may happen to you "good or bad". As far as Kim goes non of those women should judge, I like the fact that she may have made some mistakes but she doesn't pretend to be someone she isn't. I don't approve of her past, but the past is the past. What is Nene pretending to be an actress? A model? she is hustling like the rest of them. Remember Nene was A "stripper" I sure would'nt be judging anyone about there lifestyle. I really hope that eventually someone will finally shut her mouth. Read: mokieman spell on this he narrowed it down the best!
You hear she quit, you hear she was fired, either way I'm glad she left to better herself and the image of women in general.
Shows like Bravo's demean women.
Sheree is better than Bravo.
Most of the TV/Entertainment industry is run by gays and they really don't like women. They use them to get next to the men they want. They use women like cattle. Housewives is a good example of the gay Hollywood disconnect with American morals and values.
She stated, "After four solid seasons of helping Bravo build the show into its most successful 'Housewives' franchise, I have decided to leave."
This chick is delusional. She helped Bravo....?! This is what being so self-absorbed got you Sheree...fired. She and Kim are so stupid (except Kim moved on the the next sugga daddy once he got his $10 million contract - hooker). NeNe was so right again about them its not funny. Like NeNe said she'd be a fool to sit up there on a panel and not do ANYTHING. She didn't even need to say Sheree's name for you to know who she was talking about. Now what is Kim going to do to stay relevant? Kroy?! Paleez. He's as boring as she is. Bravo is constantly trying to promote her and I have no idea why. If NeNe leaves, there is no RHOA period.
