The Whole Story

Sheree Whitfield gives you behind-the-scenes Reunion scoop.

The set of the reunion show was sooo beautiful! We taped for over four hours, but it was narrowed down to one. So of course there were a few key things that I felt were important that were left out.

Let's start with Lisa.

What you guys saw was the milder version of the Kim/Lisa fiasco.

Well, let's go back a few months .... When Lisa called me and told me about the song, I never mentioned anything to Kim until we were on the boat. There Kim began to tell me all the negative things that NeNe had said about me and how bad she felt for joining in. Kim, also, said she heard NeNe was talking shit about her. I said, "Don't worry about it, she talks about everybody." I then said, "Did you hear about the song?" Kim then said, "What was it about?" I said, "I don't remember all the details because I wasn't there." She asked me who told me, I said Lisa. So Kim said to get Lisa on the phone. We called Lisa and put her on speaker phone, so that Corey, Kim, Allison, and myself all could speak/hear her. Lisa said she couldn't join us because she was headed to paintball with her family. So Kim asked her about the song, and Lisa began to tell verbatim what was shown, as well as everything that was not shown, that NeNe was singing/saying about her. After a while her phone cut out. Lisa then called me back from her husband's phone and continued the conversation. Up until a few days before the reunion, Lisa swore she never spoke to us period while we were on the boat. Then SUDDENLY Lisa said she remembered talking to us on the boat but she said the conversation only lasted under 30 seconds in which she told us she could not attend.

I brought my phone bill to the reunion which was evident that someone's (Lisa) telling a lie. Once the phone bill came out Lisa really went ballistic and that's the part that was even crazier! The phone bill was given to Andy Cohen, but the show is only an hour long so it was edited out. Why Lisa made such a huge deal out of this is beyond me. I think she brought more attention to the situation than it needed. It was said that she didn't want to ruin her ON-SCREEN squeaky clean image. I never threw her (Lisa) under the bus. As a matter of fact I even went on camera and said I would NOT reveal who told me about the song, until I found out that she had been telling people that I was a liar and I told

Kim and that we were setting her up. Lisa grow up. What utter reason do I have to benefit form this lie? At the time I was closer to you. So, why do you think I would make up something so trivial? It is what it is. You told Kim, you were on speaker, and I have the phone bill to prove it .... Enough said. Kim, first of all, I never heard Kim sing until I saw it on T.V. To this day I still haven't heard Kim sing in person. What I was listening to was a CD. I was told it was her first single which wasn't her singing. I have heard many times from most of the girls that Kim has said negative things about me as well everyone else. I didn't know Kim prior to this taping. I met Kim once through NeNe in a group setting a few years go and I saw her twice after that in passing. We had never sat down and had a conversation nor had a chance to get to know one another. So for her to say negative things about me, a person she didn't know, is crazy. I for one don't judge a book by its cover. I heard plenty of negative things said about her, but I didn't judge her. I gave her the benefit of the doubt. I trust until a person shows me otherwise. Hmm.

At the reunion I also discovered why NeNe had a beef with me prior to taping. It was because I was invited to a private party and was only admitted a plus one. While NeNe and I had been cool we hardly ever, if ever, hung out or traveled alone. There was usually a small group of us. NeNe is fun to hang out with. However, it was never done on a one-on-one basis. So when I got the invite, I invited one of my very close friends. NeNe asked me to see if I could get not only her in but her husband and another couple (four people)! When I called her, I let her know that security was extremely tight and I didn't think it was possible. I went back and forth with her on the phone up until 1:30am telling her there was nothing I could do about getting four people in. I probably could have gotten her in but not three more people. Funny, I always wondered if that was the reason for the anger, but I hoped it wasn't. Over the years I had gotten her into many other parties. Surely this couldn't be it! I was thinking or wishing that it would be something a lot more meaningful or profound. NOT. With that said, perhaps we were never really friends, only mere acquaintances.

I want to thank all of you who have inquired about "She by Sheree." I am still excited and am very much involved! Please look for "She by Sheree" in stores Fall '09. Continue to go to my MySpace for updates. My Web site is under construction. It was shut down due to fraud, but it will be up within the next two weeks. Overall I believe that The Real Housewives of Atlanta totally rocked! As NeNe said we all are forever connected. I thank god for blessing me with this opportunity to inspire some, help some, and encourage some. I have made many mistakes, but I have also learned from them. So at the end of the day we are all human; no one is perfect. The key is to live life to the fullest, believe in yourself, and reach for the stars.

Til next time,

Xoxo

Has Kenya Found Love?

Kenya Moore reveals there may be a new man in her life (and dishes on the Claudia/Kordell situation).

Happy Birthday to Me!

This week has been phenomenal. I took two days to celebrate my birthday. I have to say, my favorite was a couple’s massage and stimulating dinner with new people. To be honest, I feel like my life is taking a turn for the better. I think forgiveness has been key. Not only forgiving others who have wronged me, but also forgiving myself for the wrong I’ve done as well. Through my personal journey my world and heart have expanded and I’m growing every day. With that said, I’m finally able to receive and attract love the way I have always wanted.

Speaking on forgiveness, I was shocked to witness the conversation with Gregg and NeNe. She literally started the fight with Claudia, said the nastiest and vile things to her, and managed to attack me, Cynthia, and Demetria in one felled swoop. After which she contends that, “After you apologize that should be the end of it.” Really, girl? Do you ever watch yourself? How many times have I apologized to NeNe about the infamous couples' night? The “non invitation” to the masquerade ball? I’ve even apologized for all of the comments and reads across two seasons at the Tavern in Duluth! Was that the end of it for NeNe? Sadly, everyone already knows the answer.

BABY TIME

I think Todd and Kandi would have adorable children. Speaking from experience, chances of successful pregnancies for a woman rapidly decline after age 36. It’s brave of them to allow the world to see their journey to having a baby the same way I did. I wonder if Phaedra thinks Kandi has scrambled eggs as well? Point being, when people try to hurt you with statements that hit well below the belt, they often speak to groups of people, not just one person. No one should make fun of someone who experiences challenges having a baby or expanding their family. The great thing is Todd and Kandi are in a loving relationship and can take the journey together. There are many resources available to assist in family planning, and perhaps they can educate people along the way and encourage them to seek other options such as adoption. There are always children in need of a family and parents who are capable of loving and caring for them. It is a process and it will happen. #Godspeed

ROAD TRIP

OK, I hate road trips (especially with girls), but I wanted to support Cynthia and Peter by attending. My choices were few: A. Go and pull my hair out one strand at a time, or B. Get hyped in the car ride along the way to make the time go by faster. I think you know which one prevailed...LOL! I love laughing and being silly, and I’m downright goofy at times. What’s fun about hanging out with Cynthia and Claudia is I can be myself. Yes, it was silly to moon people or hang up on Phaedra, who appeared to just be making excuses about why she couldn’t go. Childish, YES! That was sort of the point. Let me live and laugh. I’m not hurting anyone with laughter.

BAR ONE

Congratulations to Peter and Kordell. Sports One Charlotte was a huge hit! I was polite to Kordell, because I have never had any real issue with him. I wasn’t surprised that Claudia knew him, because she’s a huge sports fan, but they have always just been friendly. I definitely saw some chemistry there. To the critics who think it’s messy to encourage them to date because he was married to a former Housewife, well, that’s just ludicrous. If Claudia was actually friends with his ex, perhaps I would have encouraged her to make sure she didn’t have an issue with it. But they were never friends and still aren’t.

It’s been over 2 years since they divorced, and clearly they have each moved on and are with other people (or sugar daddies). Speaking of sugar, I do not know if the rumors about Kordell are true or not. What I do know is what I see with my own two eyes is an articulate, gracious, and respectful man. Even after the divorce he refrained from trashing his ex. Granted, I’ve never been married to him nor dated him, so I have to rely on my knowledge and interaction with him now, not from someone determined to malign him.

Further, if you meet a man in his 40s who is single, he is likely divorced and someone’s ex. You never know where you find love. Frankly speaking, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Who are we to determine if Claudia and Kordell are better suited for each other? Only they can decide that being two grown consenting adults. My advice to those who always look for negativity in situations is that you always find what you are looking for. However, most times, it is actually what it is meant to be -- a friend wanting happiness for her girl.

DETROIT PUBLIC SCHOOLS FOUNDATION WINS $20,000

Thanks for all the love and support to my many supporters and team twirl and staff that keep me pushing forward! You support me and are always honest. And thank you for all the congratulations I received from my win on Celebrity Apprentice last week. As project manager I won $20,000 for my charity the Detroit Public Schools Foundation (detroitpsfoundation.org). Unfortunately, during my high moment there are always people trying to rain on my joy. There were a lot of tweets accusing me of not using my own $20,000 when I made the donation to DPSF last year. The fact is, the Trump organization holds the donations until after the show airs to preserve the integrity of the show's outcome. Therefore, DPSF received 2 checks; one from me for $20,000 from my personal bank account and the other from Celebrity Apprentice for $20,000. The real question is: Where is NeNe's $20,000? #IllWait
