Despite What Kenya Moore Says, Sheree Is "Happy" with Chateau Sheree's Progress
The #RHOA alum opens up about her explosive return to the series and the state of her home-in-progress.
Sheree Whitfield's return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta was not short on drama. In fact, she had everyone paying attention when she and Kenya Moore had a heated confrontation at Cynthia Bailey's eyewear launch party over their homes-in-progress, Chateau Sheree and Moore Manor. It was a disagreement that the RHOA alum says she definitely never saw coming.
"I was totally surprised by that because I didn't know her, so for her to come off so aggressive and just appear so desperate it totally surprised me," Sheree told The Daily Dish. "I honestly didn't keep up with a lot of the seasons when I left, so probably had I kept up, I wouldn't be surprised. But for her to attack someone she didn't know, I thought that was... I was caught off-guard and I thought it was uncalled for."
And while it may take a little more work for Kenya and Sheree to mend their relationship, work is still very much underway on Sheree's home. "Construction's going. You know, I get kind of frustrated. I just kind of prioritize. I put a lot into this house: time, energy, effort. This is just me saying, 'You know what? I've never built a house. I'm gonna do it.' It was me wanting to do everything on my own," she said. "And I did not hire a contractor, a [general contractor], I was the [general contractor]. I made some mistakes, but at the end of the day I'm not upset. I'm happy and I'm happy with the direction it's going [in]. I love fashion. And with fashion, that's interior [design], that's clothing, all of that. So for me to take something and create something major, that's awesome."
The experience has also led Sheree to consider a whole new career for herself. "I can see myself in the future kind of rehabing homes. Going to older homes, buying them, gutting them, and creating something beautiful," she explained.
