Sheree Whitfield weighs in on why NeNe wasn't on her party guest list.

on Oct 7, 2008

I enjoyed watching the first episode, especially the day at the spa with my kids. My children are my life. Before being a designer and diva fashionista, I am a mother of three. I'm a loving and supportive mom and I work very hard to make sure my kids' future and education is secured, which is my reason for launching "She by Sheree." I am extremely fashion conscious and I have been passionate about fashion ever since I was a child.

Now the HOTNESS... I had a blast putting together my birthday party and commanding the attention of all the guests. My birthday party a.k.a. "The Fashion Extravaganza" was, by far, one of the most challenging, yet rewarding experiences for me this year. Planning a birthday party for myself is something I have never done. I must admit, it was more work than I ever imagined.

At the party, lot of things didn't go as planned or as smoothly as they should have. I like order and structure. I'm a perfectionist and I expect nothing less from my staff. The unfortunate incident with the guest list was a big no no. The publicist made a huge error, but tried to rectify the situation immediately. Apparently NeNe wasn't having it and made a huge scene outside my house! (Can you imagine how many texts and calls I got the next morning about the girl screaming and cursing in my driveway?) I hate that things happened the way that they did. However, after watching the premiere, NeNe didn't appear to have the best intentions or a genuine reason for coming to my party. Her only focus and goal was to try to outdo, upstage, or outshine me - the birthday girl! Who does that?
