Sheree Whitfield

Sheree speaks out about the season premiere, the party planning showdown, and more!

on Aug 3, 20090

First off I would like to thank all of our loyal viewers for tuning in to the premiere in such large numbers. You are the best. I also want to thank you all for your positive feedback and I appreciate hearing from all of you. Believe me when I say, a lot of it helped me get through my day, it has not been easy.

Moving. Watching the first episode was very emotional for me. The circumstances that I was in at the time is something that I would never wish on anyone. It was really hard trying to remain strong in the presence of my kids, knowing at times I felt like breaking down. I now realize that the sudden move was God's way of telling me that it's my time to move on. I'm happy now, I'm focusing on building my new life and business and feeling inspired to do the things I couldn't do before. I'm finally at a point in my life where I feel like I'm moving forward and enjoying life. Today I'm in a much better place mentally and emotionally than I was four years ago or even one year ago. I am at peace now!

Niecy Nash's party. I was invited to come to a party by a local photographer and it was mentioned that Niecy Nash was going to be in attendance. Unfortunately, they failed to tell me that it was her birthday party, I didn't get that memo. So how hilarious, that I'm on the red carpet and get asked about a birthday and I reply "Whose birthday?" I felt so bad watching that, but I honestly didn't know. My 9 year old called me after watching and said, " Mommy who goes to a birthday party and don't know whose party it is?!?" All in all I had a good time at the party and Niecy Nash looked wonderful! Niecy texted me and said don't worry about it, she said she had been on tons of red carpets and didn't know whose event it was!!! LOL

Leading up to Niecy Nash's party, Nene, Lisa and I all realized that Kim had been calling each of us talking about the others very negatively. I guess she didn't think that we all would talk!

Sheree,

I just got around to seeing that episode and I have known Tyson since High School he was president of his senior class and one of the most popular guys in school. He is a well established Film Producer with numerous film credits. I dont know who you googled, but you are wrong. Also, I know you must have provoked him, he isnt the kind of person that would go off for no reason...So stop all the lying.

Wow Sheree - that's some long explanation for what happened!

Season 2 has only just started airing here in Australia and I have to say I was shocked by the behaviour of the Party Planner - however it did make good TV.

I really don't understand how someone can promote a ticketed event on the basis of you showing up when you clearly were not going to - more fool those people who went I guess when they should have known better.

Looking forward to the rest of the season.

Sheree, the first season I didn't particularly care for you. Never judge a book by its cover. I have a lot of respect for you. From what I see, you are a strong positive woman. I really felt horrible for you when your first showing of your collection didn't work out. It seemed like every time you turn around, something negative was happening to you. When they said you didn't show up on purpose for Lisa's show, I was like there has to be a logical explanation. Your son is a top priority and you handled the situation appropriately. You have a life too. The fact that you still showed up at the end of the day, shows what type of person you are. If they can't see that the hell with them. Also, to the loser, what's his name, he is a idiot. How disrespectful to behave that way towards a woman? You handled yourself with class but there is only so much a person can take until the Who's Gonna Check Me Boo comes out! Keep your head up. I wish you the best of luck in everything that you do and stay strong.

Hey Sheree,

I just would like to say to you and the other ladies. You all are friends, and if friends have something to say to each other then,it should be delvered to whom you're having the problem with. No,one is beyond being talked about rich or poor if they aint man nor woman enuf to say it to your face I wouldn't worry about. But, if what they are saying is true then maybe you need to consider what is the intention to hurt me or make me a stronger or better. Sometimes we just need to do inventory on ourselves and put ourselves in check. Maybe you could be hurting your self. LADIES DO REMEBERTHIS STICK & STONES MAY BREAK MY BONES, BUT WORDS WILL NEVER ME. IT'S ONLY MAN YOU SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT. THE MAN UP ABOVE. LOVE YOU GIRL.

Sorry to post again lol. But I had to say that your head movement and facial expression during the 'who gon check me boo' said a whole lot more lol. It said:

'I wish u would put your hands on me'

'I just got a divorce and I am still in the ass kicking mode'

'Go head and hit me...and Im gon lay yo fat ass out'

'Im tired but not too tired to kick your ass'

'Don't let these designer glasses fool u'

LOL...u are too funny Sheree....too funny.

Sheree you have me laughing all over again lol. I agree with the posters. If you make a tee shirt with 'who gon check me boo?' I will buy it! Turn what Satan meant to harm u with, into something good. And after u get paid from the tee shirts alone, u should send Ms. Anthony a tee shirt and a note saying 'THANKS FOR THE INSPIRATION BOO'.

But make the tee shirts cute (v-necks and a little spandex). Who knows, may be this is what's meant to be your clothing line. Ppl will be saying this for years to come and everyone will know, 'SHEREE SAID THAT' lol.

Thank You!

Sheree I love your style... you remind me of the blue vien class of African American form the 1920's. You caryy the same sense of graqce and compusre that they have. I use the wrds "sense" bc you carry your style like a garment or veil rather than who you really are. What comes through is in fact insecurity and pain ... I'm sure from your recent divorce. My heart goes out to you because I can see that you are in pain. We also see that the hurtful things that people do or say about you really cut you. (i.e. Kim) Even though you pretend like they don't. Stay postive and conitnue to focus on you and redefining who you are and I am sure you will come back to yourself.

Sheree, You are a confident woman you will not be stepped over or abused. The Party planner was on all levels OUT of line. My concern is you are great, but dont let people push your buttons so easily, because these people are non significant, and you probrobly will live a lot longer. Just keep smiling you are a great mom to your children and one of the reasons why I watch the show. LOl I was upset watching the scene on TV so I can only imagine how you felt. Keep up the great work, you are beautiful.

I was appalled with the behavior of the so-called party planner, Anthony/Tyson! I'm so glad he got the camera time he deserved. Now everyone will know NOT to do business with this person in the future. He sure ruined his reputation on this episode. I'm happy Bravo chose to air this person's violent behavior. He was handed a free pass for advertising and blew it. Poor soul. I hope he Tivo'd it so he can watch himself over and over again, making a fool of himself. I'm happy Sheree stood up to this punk/bully and showed she can put a bully in his place! You go girl!!

I can't wait for this show on Thursday's. Thanks for the laughter,fashions and the OMG moments!

Sheree, You should have CHECKED that so-called-planner. You should have let NeNe's gay friend...the 6th House Wife of ATL plan your party. It would have been FAB. I look forward to a full season of entertainment with no Dam re-runs.....

Keep the Glam Up!

NeNe...The new hair-cut is OK.... You seem more relaxed this season...Why?

Kim - You are a real sister in white paint...Love ya.

I miss Deshawn - Press forward sister with your foundation.

Kandi - Don't you dare marry that man! ENOUGH SAID!

Lisa...please get pregnant and leave the show...You are my least favorite drama queen.

Omg, you were so genius in that fight with the party planner! I don't know how you kept so in control, you just sat there and laid into him! Hilarious!! You are never boring on that show, I love how you put that idiot in his place! I wonder if he's learned about customer service yet?

Lisa

Sheree I think you were wrong for the way that you treated Kim...Every single one of you ladies have done the same thing by talking behind one anothers backs. I think Kim was there for you when you and NeNe were on the outs and now that you 2 have resolved your problems you are being immature to Kim. I am just speaking what it looks like from this view!!!

Sheree, Your ordeal with the party planner rom hell got a little crazy and scary at the end but I must tell you that I LOVED that line. Not that I think you invented it, but becuase of the cool confidence in which you delivered it and the absolutely dunbfounded look on the psycho planner's face when you delivered it...priceless. "Who gon' check me, boo!" Make thaqt your theme. Best of luck to you!

Sheree,

You first appeared as an arrogant woman in the first season. But it is only your confidence and independence that made you come across that way. I think you're pleasant, classy and extremely strong and just hope all works out for you. I hated to look at a black man who claimed to be a professional be threatening to a woman. He was very unprofessional and out of place. He had no business acting that way it's his job to answer questions no matter how many times asked. You should have pressed charges on him. My sister's and I thought that man was gonna hit you seriously. You should have pressed charges on him. Also I can identify with a deadbeat spouse/father. Financially, you will be alright, bec i'm certain your settlement and clothing line will be bountiful. But emotionally, it can be a difficult thing.However, your children are old enough to know who the enemy is. Focus on your children they will need you more than ever. And you'll always be blessed.

Sheree' in the first season I did not like you because I felt you showed the bitterness of your divorce. However this season you seem to be calm. Now the juicy part, Whatever his names is has no class, professionalism, customer sdervice, ands frankly no business stating he is a professional. Now, as for going back to Cleveland ansd calling Pookie and the crew that was classic:) My husband is also from Ohio and he makws fun of "Pookie and the Crew" a lot when it comes to whipping but, but I have two gay godbrothers that would love to step off in his butt, they were so mad when we discussed the show. Dante' said he is so unprofessional he makes gay professionals look like fools. Keep your head up.

That guy was a complete fool...1st of all he was using Sheree's popularity and public image to promote his own party/planner business...but instead of being an intelligent and promoting his company in postive and professional light, he proved himself to be an ass and a complete fool. He could have had advertisement and labelling all over the event...showing first class service...but instead he is the idiot that argued with Sheree over her asking reasonable questions about an event for her! It's a shame...he didnt know how to take advantage of the spotlight placed on him and his career. And worst of all...he still thinks he is right.

Hey, I really enjoy watching your show. I wonder how "real" is it? Because it is made for TV. I admire your confindence and you make women feel they have a voice and can't be treated any kind of way. You have a beautiful spirit and it sounds like life's experience and made you a more wise person. Hope your life only gets better.

GuRl, You should of slapped him for talking to a lady like that. What was that undercover drag queen thinking!!! Only a gay guy that has no respect towards women would speak like that to a lady!!! I am gay and I would never in my life time speak to a woman like he did. My mom tough me to respect women at all times...I guess that why I turned out gay..lol j/k... I dont respect his so called top executive blablabla...its all trash thats not what a top level executive does....that's what a ghetto low class executive that works in a swat-meet does...yo mama!!!!im glad you let him have it

Sheree...what can I say? Truthfully, I pretty much couldn't stand u last season, but have honestly grown to admire u on so many different levels. Will I ever forget the way u checked Mr fancy pants? NO! What particular brand of crack must he be smoking? Congrats and continued blessings on the next episode of your life. You are an inspiration for many women facing similar challenges. It would really be nice to see u ladies handle the "love triangle" situation more carefully...at this point u guys seem to be headed for the same brick wall u crashed into that lead to this fiasco in the beginning. I have my eye on Lisa...she's sneaky.

Tata for now, LaLa "who gone check me boo!"

All I can say is: I love me some Sheree! "Who gon' check me boo?" So hilarious. I have been saying that phrase all week. I loved how Anthony got what me and my friends call "The Hush-Mouth". He got flustered and had nothing to say. He is ridiculous.

Sheree girl you are awesome. You already know that you are beautiful and strong but girl you ain't scared of nobody are you?! I can relate to you and Kandi because I'm a single mom too, so I know how it is. And if you want a man in the future don't worry cause you shouldn't have any roblem, just make sure he can hang with you, cause you have alot of "personality" a man that loves you for you will come along and wipe all those other punks out of your mind. That's if your even thinking about one now,but watching the show for a second time today I had to tell you. YOU GO GIRL, and be careful with that gun!!! God Bless!!!

Hey Sheree what do you think of Kandi? being a new housewife, I don't like her, who is she to write on her blog stuff about yous when she just the new membwer that pops outta no where, I don't like her, she gonna take up too much of the show now, when all we really wana watch is nene, you, kim and lisa, hope she's worth putting on the show...

It amazes me how people act like they've never heard anyone use Boo in a funny way. People of color and in the hood use boo all the time, we call our boyfriends boo and girlfriends boo, we call our kids boo, and people are saying ooh you need to put that on a shirt...."FOR WHAT". "It's not new...people, please get over it, she did not coin the phrase boo.

You are so much better this season then last season. I think all you've been through has caused you to have a reality check. I am happy that you landing squarely on your feet, no thanks to Bob. I like your relationship with your children. I am also happy to see you got your sons braces. That really wasnt cool last season you spending all that money and ignoring his orthodontic care, lol! In closing you've taken a large slice of humble pie and you are the better for it. Much success to you.

Sheree, I'm an educator in Washington, DC who loves watching the show. I was a fan of yours from day one. I connected with your personality because I can relate to the challenge of balancing self-preservation, determination, and personal struggles-and being misunderstood. Lady, all I can say is that out of all the ladies you are the most marketable! You could build a empire, but you should refocus....the business shouldn't be primarily fashion...you can build your empire around PARENTING-MOTHERHOOD-EDUCATION-ORGANIZING A HOUSEHOLD and then the fashion for KIDS. Let me know if you need me. Just e-mail me...I'm fab!

Hi Sheree was that argument with your party planner for REAL??!! What, that guy was crazy, I sure hope he is fired and you are suing the company. Also, when I watched that episode the scene before that you were getting your hair done by your beautician, Lawrence, I notice he used these really cute small yellow flat irons. I have plans to cut my hair short and want the best flat irons for short hair. Can you PLEASE ask him the name of those flat irons so I can order me one. Thanks in advance.

I mean I understand your wealthy but the same exact range rover in a different color? IDK this season just seems to be very flashy. Its really not a good look for the african-american community.

That party planner was the worse and I hope no one works with him in Atlanta ever! Even if you made him mad you still should remain professional. I mean I hate to say it, but this is why sometimes we go to people of another race instead of using our own people. All he had to say was, I am sorry I am not going to be able to work with you because we seem to have a difference of opinion. For a man to get in your face like that was so disrespectful. You should have called the police on him and had him locked up. He has no class, and the way he jumped in your face...is he gay...It was like a cat fight that women have...Sorry you experienced that but I am glad he was put on blast. I hope people saw the show and will not work with him anymore. It was embarrassing to see him act that way.

Sheree, I would like a WGCMB bracelet & tshirt ASAP. My bday is August 20th. Watching you throw it down with the RUDE party planner (WGCMB?) & then watching you say in the next scene "Whatever happened to customer service?" is one of the funniest things I have ever seen on TV. I just sent an email to everyone I know telling them to say "Who gonna check me, boo?" at least once in the next week. Extra points for saying it in corporate settings or at formal events.

You have beautiful children & it is just obvious how much you love them. Congratulations on the new place. You're making room to let in more positive energy, & leaving the past behind. You are such a piece of work!
