Sheree Whitfield

Sheree gives us the 411 on She by Sheree, explains how she got into acting, and addresses the Dwight situation.

on Oct 6, 20100

First, let me start by saying how good it feels to be back. Its been a long time coming! I want to thank those of you who have continued to follow me and my progress and check up on me. I really appreciate it. 

Ok, lets start with She by Sheree! Fashion is my baby, my passion and where my heart truly lies! After my Atlanta fashion show, I had the opportunity to show my collection during New York Fashion Week. Oh-Em-Gee, a designer's dream! To also be given so much positive press and comments and to be included in the NY Daily News as one of the 5 designers to watch was truly an amazing experience. One that I will not be giving up on. Getting a collection ready for stores is a very difficult and time consuming task. Its not an over night process like most seem to think! You design it, get the samples, and BAM your in the store...NOT! Doesn't work that way. Since showing in NY, I've had so many people ask where they can get the line, will it be affordable, etc. Well of course the fabrics that I picked were so expensive Very fashionable pieces but make them affordable," which means for me starting over and making some adjustments. Which in my heart is the best thing for the line. But trust, this is not the end for She by Sheree.

Who is Sheree? She acts all hard with everybody, then when it comes to putting her ex-husband in jail for not paying child support for years, she acts all weak and traumatized. Phaedra told her to put his ass in jail, but she got all scary. Then, when Bob flips the script on her and filed contempt, she wants to blame Phaedra. She needs to blame herself. She needs to stop being a weak ass bitch and get that money. She may just get a few hundred dollars, but it will be a few hundred dollars less that he has to spend on himself. I would take any and everything that I could get from his sorry ass. I was very surprised to see Sheree’s mom get up and hug him. I would have just sat in my chair and shook his hand. He does not deserve a hug. That loser does not want to support her grandchildren. You better watch yourself Sheree, especially with your son. He does not need to see Bob treat you so badly.

I am sure She by Sheree will be fabulous because Sheree's has impeccable taste. If she makes her line affordable for the stylish working women it will make her a millionaire. Most fans love Sheree's & would support her. I know I would. Especially if she comes up with a line for the plus size women (hint hint).

I am proud of you for going after so many different things. You have the fashion line going, you are doing acting and then did the dancing thing even though you were nervous. The other girls always have something negative or nasty to say whenever you do something and its obviouisly because they must be jealouse of your strong ambition and adventurous side of you that allows you to try out new things. You remind me of my mom...she is very young looking like you and beautiful and energetic like you... and she lets nothing stand in her way of doing creative goals she has in life. You are a very positive role model for women in not limiting ourselves in all the great possibilities out there for us...especially for black women, you are an inspiration! :)

I agree with that. I can understand the feeling "free" and sky is the limit, but I dont see the acting at all, nor the dancing. Modeling maybe. I have auditioned many people, and I did not see her show the ability to put herself in the part. Nothing wrong with trying things, but pick one thing that you are good at and learn how to become the best.

I see such a difference in you this season...I love how real you are, and how you have really calmed down since the first two seasons. But I must say...what has happened to Dwight this season??? WOOOOW!!! I love your older daughter! She is SOOOOOO beautiful. You two reminds me of my mom and me. EVERYONE says we look like "sisters" and she looks too young to have a daughter my age (i'm 26). But dont think you are too young to be a grandma...if it happens, you will just be a "Gorgeous Grandma"!!! lol

p.s,

Tell us what your secret is for getting your arms to look so damn good!!!

Why not stick to one thing at a time? Finish your line, is it out, are you making any money. Before you start an acting career. You have a long way to go before you win an Oscar.

GOD Is Good!!!

Sheree You Are A Blessing To Many Women

I know most people watch the show for many diferent reasons but I must admit I watch this show for message and reason to keep pushing. Shree you and NeNe gave me hope. I went through a terrible divorce and I thought I could not bounce back and eben wanted to take my life but this show start giving me hope and strenght again. So thank you and please stay real and keep GOD first.

Hi Sheree, I watched the lost episode and I really think that you made the mistake of not hiring Dwight to help you. I think your line would be instore right now. I know that in this season "3" you are putting fashion on hold...WHAT! You got to strike the iron while its hot babe! Opportunities don't come around all the time. I thought it was terrible that you spoke trash about Lisa's line ON CAMERA! Keeping contacts and good relationships with peers, contacts, colleagues and associates are the foundation of a successful business. I'll break it down for you. YOU NEVER KNOW WHO YOU MIGHT NEED! Your attitude stunk business wise. You were dissing Lisa like you were STRAIGHT VERSACE. Dwight knew more about the fashion business logistically than you. He was working it! He did a lot of things that you didn't even think of. Maybe you should get into acting...I don't think that you are serious about fashion. If I was in the fashion business I would be in school trying to learn the craft first and build on that. You can befriend a super hot designer who can help you produce your dream clothing line. ...if its your passion...

You are representing 40s in an astounding way!!! You are GORG!!!! Best looking housewife out of the entire housewives franchise

i completely disagree dwight "volunteered" and got free exposure...he's not a housewife or getting paid to appear in the show....so whatever talent he has sheree provided him a gateway to show it....she would be a fool to pay him anything...and if i pay out of pocket for things that werent discussed why would i expect to be paid back?....30,000 is a huge amount to spend without an agreement....as far as putting all the work on him?...ehh...no!...all the equippment staff and planning was done....all he did was "instruct" people to put it in place....he was in charge of time management and a smooth clean fashion show decor....the theme and everything else was already complete

dont give credit where its not due

Sheree you ALWAYS look great! And I'm loving you this season like I did last season. Your divorce has freed you and you are refreshing to watch. Seeing you and Nene laugh together was so nice. Keep it up and give us some tips on how to look as hot as you do :)

Yes, Sheree said on her date that she had "3". I've only seen two, but after tonight's show I did some research. I found out that she has a 25 year old daughter. She was supposedly in a picture that was taken for Essence magazine. I don't know how credible this is but she did say that she has "3" kids so you never know.

It's not the point on whether or not Dwight discussed the cost prior to the fashion show; particularly since it appeared that Sheree placed all responsibilities on Dwight. The fact is, Dwight's assistance made the fashions stand out. I don't believe that Dwight's assistance cost $30,000 but there were expenses in borrowing accessories, re-arranging the facility, make-up artists and supplies, etc. Sheree should be humble and sincerely thank Dwight openly in front of the other housewives (since she talked about him behind his back) with a gift for his professional services, because if Dwight did not help, Sheree's fashion show would have been a flop!

Sheree,

Love the hair! However, Sheree... Dwight made your show a success. The proper thing to do would have been have a "She by Sheree Luncheon" where you could have properly thanked Dwight and his those who helped out. Also, a nice gift for Dwight would have been proper as well. I'm not sure about $30K, however, everyone knows that there are always unforeseen cost. The salon shutting down or being half staffed, the hair supplies, the assistants that worked with him, the invites the decor the lighting etc. these things cost. A lady does not simply give a curt thanks. I think that it would be lady like for you to defuse this situation by apologizing and offering him a proper thanks.

Having said that, girl, She by Sheree was on point and much much nicer than Lisa's closet whatever. I am so proud of you and I am looking forward to supporting you when the clothes hit the market! Go get 'em girl!!!!!!!!

I feel Dwight was a big help to you and he deserved to be thanked properly. I do not believe he spent thirty thousand dollars and not even consulted you at all about reimbursing. No way. If he was charging a fee for his services you should have been informed from the start. If he had to pay anyone for their services you should have been informed. I loved your fashions. There was a lot of jewlery and fur that was not necessary, it took away from your beautiful designs.

You look so beautiful this season ~ very glamorous.

Is Phaedra Dwight's lawyer? She seemed to be giving him legal advice in his living room. As his lawyer, she should not have been talking about his "case". It's obvious that he did not spend $30K of his own money on your fashion show. Case closed.

Keep looking beautiful...

Sheree, I am disappointed that you decided to put She By Sheree on hold after all the work you and others put into it. I looked forward to seeing your clothing line in stores and maybe purchasing something something from your line. I had hoped you would succeed and I hope you finish what you started. It seemed you were more than half way there. As for the acting, I noted you seemed to be acting long after your acting class was over. You seemed to be overacting when you were talking to Nene re: the article regarding Kim and, later, when you were talking to your friend/hairdresser regarding Dwight. As for Dwight, I don't doubt he spent some of his own money of your fashion show. As in Gregg's case, the question is, "How much money did Dwight spend?". I am sure his payoff for helping you was recognition in your community and credit for his good work in the fashion community.

Although Dwight can be somewhat over the top with his delivery, I think he deserves a proper thank you from you Miss Sheree.Based on the episode I watched; I only saw him doing the work and organizing things. It is appalling the way you want to make it appear that he had very little to do with putting your show together. From what I watched; I saw him discussing the venue set up, putting accessories & hair plans, etc. together. You were no where in sight. The diva that you think you are always seemed to show up late(see that I used the lil "d") and then you want to be argumentative. His discussion with Phaedra about the monies he spent might be suspect; I would ask for proof on that account. Events such as yours should be done in decency & order, and also in a timely fashion. You need to put your self-centered ego on the back burner. Sure it was "Your" fashion show but you certainly need to act more professional with your collaborations. Your instances of ghetto behavior leaves a lot to be desired in considering you & a couple of others as ladies with class. I suggest; do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Show the same respect that you are looking to recieve. I hope this season will bring a better display of ladylike behavior than the previous one. Some of you need to grow up and show that you do have some sort of morals.

I love you Sheree!!!! You are my favorite, classy, a great mother, beautiful, down to earth and smart. Stay away from that NEGATIVE NENE, she is a lonely, miserable woman who loves and cares for no one but HERSELF! Its clear that she doesn't like her friends to talk to anyone else. Clearly thats an insecurity. Classy woman do not condone her bafoonery! Let me not leave out how RUDE she is, I met her and she was horrible in person. She's not a good person. I was really fooled by your acting scene in the beginnig of the scene. I thought you were really involved with that man!! Keep up the good work. I think you will be on the big screen soon. Also, please continue to work on She by Sheree, we want to buy at but at reasonable prices.

Sheree, I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE your attitude this season! You've always been a very gorgeous and attractive woman, but having the attitude to match just makes it even better! I wish you well with you acting and your clothing line, God Bless and good luck!:o)

Sheree, I would just like to say that you are "Working It" lady. I read some the postings on your blog and I cannot help to notice that their are some haters out there!! Some people are threatened by an independent woman these days. Keep surrounding yourself with positive people and brush all the haters off. I cannot wait to see more of you and the rest of the ladies throughout this season. I wish you the best in all that you do. Take care and God Bless!

xo, Maddy ;)

You just jump on any bandwagon that goes by. As soon as someone starts gossiping about someone, you always add your two cents worth. Your hair is awesome this year, thank goodness you got a new style. But, please thank Dwight for his help in your fashion show. He OBVIOUSLY knows a heck of a lot more than you about fashion, manners etc. You should thank him. I do doubt that he put $30,000 into your show. He shouldn't have aired that.

I LIKE THE HAIR!! FOR AS DWIGHT WITH THE MONEY THING JUST ASK HIM STRAIGHT UP AND YOU COULD AT LEAST TREAT HIM OUT FOR LUNCH TO SAY THANKS FOR YOUR HELP, BUT IF THE RUMORS ARE TRUE THERE IS NO NEED TO SAY WHAT YOU DID FOR A PERSON THATS CALLED BRAGGING ITS NOT CUTE. WISH YOU THE BEST ON YOUR LINE CUZ YOUR CLOTHES ARE ACTUALLY CUTE.

Dwight may not have spent 30k on your show, but he did put in a lot of time. Time is money.

You should have thanked him.

I watched the show and loved it. One thing I noticed is that you looked more happier and not as up tight as before. I think you might have a man and he is making you happy. I hope so. Cant wait to see what other drama you guys bring to the show.

I don't know if it would have been a disaster but I think he did add some good points. I do think that she should have thanked him by taking him to lunch or buying a gift or something.

SHE BY SHEREE WOULD HAVE BEN ANOTHER DISASTER HAD IT NOT BEEN 4 DWIGHT , HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN COMPENSATED BY SHEREE.

SHEREE BURNED DWIGHT BECAUSE SHE WAS ANGRY HE CALLED HER FASHION SHOW LAST SEASON A PARTY. WITH NO CLOTHES JUST PICTURES OF CLOTHES.

DWIGHT WAS WRONG FOR MAKING SECRET DEAL WITH NENES HUSBAND HE IS NOT FRIEND WITH GREG HE IS NEE NEES FRIEND YOU DONT DO THAT TO A FRIEND.

Hi Sheree!

Welcome back! Besides Lisa (and since she's not on the show any longer) I think you are the cutiest one of all. I like the "Go Getta" in you, and how spontaneous in you. I'm a fan but there is somethings that i can't wait to be clear in my head?? I have been seeing several blogs on diff websites that you have been denying your oldest daughter all this time. I'm leaning towards it being true since you never spoke of her but you have the last word since i never heard your side. If so, you're not so intelligent and smart as we assume.

(no one is not at least curious about that??)

Again Sheree, welcome back! :)

Hi Sheree! I could totally see you on the big screen. I believe you have a natural talent, seriously. I could have sworn i saw you in an Eye Glasses commercial. Was that you? Anyway, the "business" is (as you may know) a vicious business (i know this personally) but i think you can definately pull it off. Have you thought about doing soaps? At any rate, i wish you the best of luck and i'm sending positive energy to you for your success, in both acting and She by Sheree.

Sheree, Thank you for not blowing up at Dwight like NeNe did at the show party. I understand NeNe was upset but she should of confronted him in a better enivronment one on one instead of blowing up and appearing to look unladylike at a shoe viewing. I love NeNe but at times she needs to know the right place and time to confront folks. The show made her appear like she was just ghetto and lashing out. I think she should of done it in another place and time.

As for Phaedra, I think it was wrong for her to say "you don't have money". That is unladylike of her to discuss something about you she do not know about! Phaedra wants to behave like she is above you and the rest of the girls but she is far from it. Anyways best of luck you!
