During the dinner with the Talls, Marlo mentions that I should Google her and check her record. Umm, that's not a good thing or even something anyone should be proud of especially under the circumstances. Go figure.
Anyway, the dinner with Kevin and his friends was an absolute breath of fresh air! I loved the drummer, the fire throwers, everyone was super nice with good energy, the house was beautiful, and the food was delicious. They really went out of their way to ensure we had a great time. Thanks again, Kevin!
The next day we head to Shamwari, and boy are we all beat! The property was so beautiful and at any moment you could see a monkey sitting on the roof or some of the other animals just breeze by. It was very peaceful and serene. After that debacle with Marlo, at this point I just wanted to enjoy my surroundings, appreciate the experience, and see what South Africa had to offer.
It was kind of cool that Kandi, Phaedra, and I picked the rooms we wanted. The rooms were really nice. We would stay up talking for hours or watching movies usually in Phaedra's room. I tell you, hanging out with the Smalls is a bunch of laughs!
Check yo'self, boo: Kandi said that she couldn't see the "visual" of Kim in Africa or the orphanage. That has nothing to do with race. Kim is high maintenance. Kim likes to project an image of herself being all done up. Frankly, the thought of Kim, with the wigs and the boobs-to-there and the heels is a funky visual for me to absorb, too.
That doesn't mean Kim wouldn't go or that Kim shouldn't go to Africa. It just means it's a bit funny or funky to imagine. That's what Kandi meant--and that isn't disrespectful or disloyal.
You read something nasty into it--then had to go tattle-tale to Kim. I wonder what your agenda was. . . .
I like you, but all you were doing was stirring the pot. YOU are the only person that mentioned race. Cynthia or Kandi did not. You were just causing trouble, trouble, trouble and I think every fan saw it for exactly that. Be careful with that, you see where it got Jill Zarin and Kyle Richards with fans.
I do agree that it was implied that Kandi agreed w/Cynthia. However, why not pull Kandi aside and discuss w/her instead of informing Kim? Why hurt Kim's feelings when you could've talked to Kandi face to face and find out why she felt that Kim wouldn't come to Africa or visit an orphanage? Some drama CAN be avoided if a person takes a step back and looks at the bigger picture. I wish when Marlo went on her stupid tyraid you would've just let her rant and look like an idiot. You cannot argue with a person acting a fool...then you both look silly. I agree with Kandi...Marlo is trying desperately to erase her past. Her "SHOWroom" in her suite was absolutely the most ridiculous thing I've seen. I agree w/Phaedra - you all should've brought shopping bags because it looked like a store...LOL. I'm glad you did enjoy your experience. just take the time to see the bigger picture BEFORE acting.
AND ANOTHER THING - I just re-watched the last episode, and when Cynthia said she didn't see Kim at the orphanage holding the kids - YOU LAUGHED AT THE COMMENT along with Phaedra who also laughed. Is that how you show your indignation about a statement? By laughing in agreement with or amusement about it? You are a 100% hypocrite for doing that, and outside of trying to create drama so the producers might have a reason to bring you back for another season, I can't see why you pulled that trifling stunt.
kandi saying she didnt think kim would go to the orphanage i belive was because of the poverty not because the kids were black , kim is high maintenance period so they could not see her there . You through kandi under the bus and made kandis comments seem something they were not.Then acted like your the one being straight up. honestly there was no need period , your bad .Time to say sorry to kandi and kim .
Sheree, the scenes from the show when you guys were on the safari were beautiful. I don't think that Marlo's behavior was appropriate the majority of the time! First she shows up unannounced, then she talks everyone's head off, then she decides to give everyone etiquette lessons as though you guys were raised by a pack of wolves. I wonder what the etiquette book had to say about those nasty words she said to you when she got mad about not being invited to the party. She even had the nerve to start requesting to have a certain type of room when she wasn't invited and just showed up. The things she said to you were just wrong and mean. It was un called for and not necessary, and not true. You are. Very pretty woman and I am sure the right man will come at the right time (just look at Kim). I don't even understand how Marlo could part her lips to say ssomething about you and checks and returning things, one of her charges was check fraud!!! One thing that I was impressed with is that, we all know you like nice things too, and like your labels as well, and love to be decked down from head to toe. However, you knew there is a time and place for everything. You dressed accordingly, you did not show up to a poor country with 29 pairs of shoes and purses to match, and then display them all around your room for everyone to see. You mentioned how you saw that there was a lack of basic necessities at the orphanage, you noticed that the people appreciated the things you were able to do for them. You saw how something that is so small and just an everyday item like toilet paper was a huge thing for the people in Africa. Seeing that affected you emotionally and opened your eyes up to others that are in need and how you can help. However, that trip had absolutely no affect on Marlo! It was like she saw the conditions, threw the people a crumb (which the amount of money spent was to her considering all she has), played with the kids and got back to where you guys were staying and completely forgot what she just saw and did not care to think about it. If she did have some sort if effect on her heart, she would have to make some changes in her life and she just doesn't want to do that. I will leave this saying....Marlo was so proper as far as she was concerned and thus needed to teach you guys proper etiquette, however having manners is not just about the way you butter your bread and hold a cup of tea. Proper etiquette or having good manners also involves showing care and concern for others around you, adapting to whatever circumstances you are in and not trying to make people go out of their way to soot you! It also involves being aware of how you make others feel when you do certain things. And most of all in my book it means showing respect....to those immediately around you, to the place that you are inhabiting, and to the country or location you visit. To me the upmost disrespect was to go to a location in a country where people are very poor and lack basic necessities and bring extremely extravagant, very expensive things, brag about them and watch people you see barely have clothes to wear and food to eat. That is just disrespectful and poor Etiquette. Thanks Sheree for Having the good sense to tone things down and not make black people over here in the U.S. Look bad, and not make others around you feel uncomfortable. I think you are a nice person, and don't let anyone make you think otherwise.
You still trying to justify yourself so your "boss" won't be made at you. Boss would be Kim. I think you are attractive and seem to be a great mom, but you are really boring and that's probably why you tried to create some drama. I thought you and Kandi were also friends. If so, why not just talk to her about your concerns instead of trying to wedge yourself between her and Kim. Where is Lawrence? I think he needs to replace you, boo.
It was not cool for Cynthia to tell her friends about your Phoney invite of her ONLY. BUUUT it was pure loyalty for you to call Boss Kim and tell her what Kandi said. Uh HUH.
You do speak another language
I believe the Africian stone reader that read your future was right on point. And until you change the way that you deal with the people in your life, nothing will ever change. Going back a few episodes when you took your son to get new sneakers you didn't even know your son's shoe size (you were like 3 sizes off). Which made we wonder how long your son had been wearing sneakers that were too small for him. But you brag about the number of rolexes you wear and the type of cars you drive. Please get your house in order. We all can smell a phoney a mile away. And so will any husband worthy man.
Kandi's statement did not make Kim look racist at all. I think that you like Kandi but you feel as though Kim is on top now and her husband can introduce you to one of his friends so you are willing to throw anyone under the bus to show kim you're faithfulll to her. If you are a true friend to Kandi you would have told Kandi how you felt about what she said before you said anything to kim. You started trouble between them just like Cynthia did between you and Marlow . Your words "Messy, Messy, Messy"..........
I know you consider yourself classy but that was tacky on the stunt you pulled on Kandi. If you were a true friend you would have pull her to the side and told her that she was wrong for what she said, instead of throwing her under the bus. that is ok what goes around comes around.
Sheree, Sheree, Sheree,
I'm happy that you had a wonderful time during your visit to Africa, learning a little about the culture, and seeing great things, but getting to the point. Although you are entitle to your own opinion, I truly feel like you like drama.
If you were such a good friend of Kim's or anyone else for that matter, there would not have been a need to call Kim to inform her of someone speaking negative about her. There were many ways to have solved that situation. A true friend would not have let the conversation continue. A true friend would have intervene and said lets not talk about Kim, because she isn't present to defend herself! INSTEAD, you decided to act on a high school level, and do the she said/he said thing! NOT COOL!!
In your blog you also continue to display your level of immaturity, by mentioning who Marlo sleeps with to get her money and labels. How do you know? are you there every time she lays down...hmmm?? You let someone pull you out of your element, which isn't surprising considering all the people you have gotten into a despute with.
Sheree, I think you would be a good person or is a good person, if you wouldn't be so negative. Now I'm not a fan of Marlo's, but from the way you've judged her as many others have, what about when you had to go to court, and you were pulling out all your designer labels to wear, and Phaedra told you that you didn't need all of that for court. With that being said, you can't knock another person for what they have or do, because in my eyes you are just the same. I'm just saying!
You can take my comment however you want, but the fact of the matter remains is that you need to own up to your own actions before you judge others. You come off very Negative and Messy!
Peace be with you!
i agree sheree you should of pulled kandi aside and told her how you felt. kandi is very nice and harmless. i think you want kim to hook you up with a football player too. sorry cause i do like you. but i hate kim cause nene really liked her alot
Sheree, I watched it to like everyone else and Kandi did not elude to anything racist in reference to Kim. I agree with Kandi 100%, ' I dont see Kim going to Africa or anywhere where she would have to give of herself'. A grown ass lady as you like to refer to yourself, your actions here, was nothing but child's play. What you should have done was giveYOUR FRIEND, Kandi, the opportunity to explain herself if you truly felt like she had tarnished Kim's reputation unjustly. That is, before you jumped on the first opportunity to create drama and ratings for yourself. I am sure you would not want Kalie, your baby girl, to do what you did in that fashion. There was a better more respectful way to handle it. Whatever camera person directed/instructed you to "start" drama did you nothing but harm because you looked very very bad with the worst intentions; "a friend of no-one trying to get ratings for herself". I thought you were smarter than that. Your ratings just dropped ten points less than Marlo's. A 'grown-ass-lady' would fess up during the reunion special otherwise I am no longer interested in ANYthing you have to say although I really loved how you stood up to Marlo in the presence of your enemies. I like your strength, so please do the right thing...admit it and apologize, you were wrong!
Sheree, I agree 100% with your blog. You were being a loyal friend to Kim, and Kandi is so two-faced - She AGREED with Cynthia, and even added some. I would not trust her as far as I could throw her (and the at would not be far at all!!). Luv you girl!!
Sheree, I also agree that you though Kandi under the bus. I didn't see anything wrong with Kandi agreeing with Cynthia. People have a right to their own opinions. It didn't appear that she was speaking of Kim in a negative manner. However, if you thought Kandi's behavior was wrong, you should've said something to her first before telling Kim or just not have said anything to Kim at all. Bottom line, you were wrong.
Sheree, I agree you should have told Kim what was said if Kim had asked if anyone made comments about her. But Kim didn't ask so instead you came off no different than Cynthia when she went and told the Talls that she was invited to the dinner and they weren't. Do you see how running back and telling (it doesn't matter if Khandi was sitting next to you or not) gets things kicked off?
I love all of you ladies on this show. Each of you have such different personalities and it is entertaining to see everyone interact. I wish you all would come together and be more positive like you were on some of the moments during the Africa trip.
Why do you feel the need to be so protective of Kim? She has said many negative things about you regarding your finances, check writing and consumer habits. She also said a very negative comment about Kandi a few episodes back when she was using that wrap to lose inches and body fat. I recall her saying that Kandi needed try it and she and her daughter laughed about it. I'm just saying this to to say that everyone including Kim has said that about other cast members even if they are supposed to be "friends". Therefore, what were you really trying to prove?
You lied about what kandi said. At least you admit that now. What weird kind of head slinging were you doing with Marlo? You 2 looked like evil twins.
Sheree you were just as messy as Cynthia, why can't you grasp that? You stirred the pot and threw kandi under the bus. It was all giggles and smiles when you were all on safari and you went along with it. But then you were so eager to tell Kim and didnt even portray it in the matter it was brought up. I understand you saying you didnt bring up Cynthia, because of the friend fraction. But if your going to tell a story, tell it all and tell it right. You were wrong and turned a small issue into a major issue. Not a good look boo. Step your game up, because this made you look very petty....
I'm shocked so many people are not understanding your motive in telling Kim about Kandi's comments. I get it, you were telling Kim, IN FRONT OF KANDI, what went on. Not behind Kandi's back, but sitting right next to her. Simple! I would LOVE to have a friend like you. Keep it up girl!
Ok, when did you and Kim become such good friends. A season ago you tried to pull her wig off. When Kandi made that comment about Kim, agreeing with what Cynthia said, you also laughed. That was really tacky that you just told Kim without talking to Kandi. If you were that concerned about someone talking about your "friend?", then you could have pulled Kandi aside and talked to her. You made it seem to Kim that Kandi was talking about her negatively. And yes, Kim acted like the bus tour was a 3rd world country. How could she have dealth with Africa.
I have to say Sheree you were so wrong , before you start spewing off at the mouth you should have your story straight. Kandi did not say anything negative about Kim. Stop be a pot stirrer and grow up !!!
Sheree, You totally lost me after you told Kim "what you thought" Kandi said. Kim and Kandi are friends, Im sure Kandi would have laughed about her innocent comments with Kim later. You showed your true colors. I was always bored with your story line, now as you try to become relevant I see who you truly are. I was never on any team, but after this I am totally Team Kandi over you.
Sheree, Sheree, Sheree, you were just plain wrong, did you run information back to Kim like you were in high school just to get attention on the show. You truly owe Kandi & Kim an apology. Wait you did it because Kim have it going on and you want some of it too. Sad girl, just sad!!!
NOW I WATCHED THE EPISODE WHEN CYNTHIA AND KANDI WERE SPEAKING ABOUT KIM AND YOU DIDN'T SAY ONE WORD. BUT IF KIM IS YOUR FRIEND THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE SPOKE UP RIGHT THEN. AND I DON'T KNOW ABOUT ANYONE ELSE BUT U DID AGREE WHEN CYNTHIA SAID SHE DIDN'T THINK KIM WOULD COME TO AFRICA. YOU ARE SUCH A DRAMA QUEEN. REALLY GIRL GROW UP...
Sheree love you on the show BUT you were wrong for putting Kandi on blast like that. I was heated so I know Kandi was mad. It just did not make sense to have to tell Kim that, like you were trying to get stuff started? As a viewer of the show, I was confused.

Sheree your role on the show is played out , girl you bring absolutley NOTHING. I'm really surprised Bravo still signs you. You just don't get it ! , got it ! or have what it takes ! I hope to see you replaced. Real Talk ! No Shade !
Ms. Sheree, you have had conflict with NeNe, Kim, Marlo, and now Kandi. You have started a clothing line, an acting career, and construction on a home--all of which have led nowhere. The point is not to throw these things in your face, but to illustrate how unfocused you are. Maybe your personal ventures would be successful if you focused on them instead of the drama.
Sheree what was your agenda in telling what was said on the safari. You were no different in telling Kim than Cynthia telling the "Talls" about the invite. Seriously....a true friend to Kim?! IF you are going to tell something...tell it ALL and tell the TRUTH. You should've started by telling what Cynthia said...which led up to what Kandi said...just because Cynthia and Kim aren't "friends" doesn't mean leave out that part to suite you....because she NEVER said anything about "black" babies....you obviously think Kim is a racist for you to imply such a comment....
Who gone check you? Marlo will put you in check girl! Kandi never discussed race. I couldn't see Kim in Africa either. Watch out Phaedra cause you are next.
if your friends with 2 people and the 2 people are friends as well, how can you be loyal to both of them? whats needed is for mouths to be closed cause as soon as you open them that's when the trouble starts ... you cant do that when your in the same circle... Sheree was wrong, out right ...just trying to start trouble.. should have spoken with Khandi 1st.
You have annoyed me since season one and now with this black babies comment you made. There's a huge difference with someone saying and cosigning that they couldn't see Kim in Africa or at the orphanage. I couldn't picture Kim there either and if she was all she would do would complain about the accomodations, the food, the flies, the dirt etc... The spin you put on it was uncalled for and quite frankly dirty.
Sheree, If you really cared about your friend Kim you wouldn't have even bothered her with that mess. I really don't think it was that serious. I don't think Kandi was saying Kim was a racist, she knows better. I also did not see that conversation with you guys about Kim as being malicious and two faced. Yes it is true that Kandi can be two faced, and play both sides, but I only really saw that when it came to Nene, and the two of them have never really been good friends. You know first hand that Kim is in a different place now. She has a new baby, home, wonderful man, and lovely daughters. It just wasn't worth repeating. A real friend would have realized that Kim is in a good place right now and wouldn't want her to get upset or worry about any drama, would be generally happy for her, and would not want to cut into her moment. I think maybe you wish that you would have the same kind of life Kim does, that you wish you would meet your prince charming like Kim did. Misery loves company, and sometimes people don't like to see others that happy they want to create a little havoc in their life so they have something to talk to them about and relate to. If you really felt like Kandi was so wrong you should have confronted her about it first and asked her to explain herself or what she meant. Then let her know that you do think Kim should know what Kandi said about her. Also if you are going to tell what someone said, tell the whole story so that it could be understood the context in what was said, and the background to it. You made it sound like Kandi just out of the blue made the statement to talk about Kim behind her back, and she didn't.
Sheree you need to apology to Kim and Kandi. You were wrong. Kandi did not agree with Kim not holding an Afican baby she agreed with not seeing Kim in Africa on the trip. She never ever said anything about a baby or co signed. You are so immature. Are you that unhappy with your lifes and all its failures that you have to cause drama between Kim and Kandi. And even after you saw the tap and were asked to apologize on the Andy after show you still declined. A real woman admits when shes wrong. Im sorry to say but everything Marlo said about you was true. Marlo may be loud and crazy but she is upfront and didnt deny what you said about here because she knew it was true. I have to respect someone who is honest and you Sheree are not.
Ok Sheree, you're getting a lot of heat for the whole Kim/Kandi comment situation. I see both sides. On one hand, Kandi's comments were just as out of line as Cynthia's. As a white woman, what both of them said pissed me off. We all know Kim's background as a nurse and obviously as a mother to three children, one being an infant. Clearly she would've had NO problem going to the orphanage and P.S., it seems to me that if somebody would've had an issue with that voyage, it would've been Marlo who is so superficial and fi-fi. However....somebody made the point that if you thought so strongly about what Kandi and Kim said, why not defend her and say something on the spot? Why wait until you get back to the hotel and on the phone with Kim before you express an opinion? In my opinion, you're ALL messy and incredibly immature, except for Phaedra.
All of the ladies on the show are messy and need to grow up. This is what happens when u place a bunch of women in a group that really don't know each other and expect them to be friends and have some type of loyalty toward each other. Sheree u need to focus on u children and ur finances and keep out of this petty drama. It's so stupid, yall are 35 plus so act like it
It's so funny how people portray themselves on these shows. Your friend who thew the party in South Africa, I heard works for Delta Air Lines. I'm sure that is why he travels a lot, as you said. He probably rented the house just for the show.
Sheree, you've never been my favorite. You are a deceitful person who cannot be a friend to anyone but yourself. You said that Kim is your friend and anyone who talks badly about her, it's your duty to let her know. You didn't say antying to Cynthia who actually said that comment, you didn't say anything about Nene who, you never took up for her in the past. I think Kim is your Boss with her new show. You're just trying to get aire time.
Sheree--you need to get your own house in order before you continue to comment on your fellow castmates.
Sheree, please grow up. You are entirely too old to perpetuate drama. You act like you are a peacemaker yet you argue with Marlo and you make an international call to tell Kim something unnecessary. You pretend to have class but you're boorish and obnoxious.
Why do you stir up a bunch of drama over nothing? The interesting thing is that now you appear to actually believe you're telling the truth and that what you said isn't something that you presented to Kim completely out of context. You know Kandi didn't mean that Kim is a racist, and that she has an aversion to black babies. She just meant that she couldn't see Kim in Africa. I agree with Kandi; she would be whining and complaining just like she did on the tour bus.
You should work on how you handle yourself. Do you like the way you come across on the show, because you really couldn't be more ghetto. You state that you are sophisticated and classy; you couldn't be more wrong.
It could have been a wonderful experience if the smalls didn't spent every waking moment focussing on the talls. On the saffari ride with the smalls, the nature guide couldn't even get their attention, everytime the guide said " ladies look here" Kandi, Sheree, and Phaedra ignored him in lieu of gossiping about the talls. At the end of the saffari, Phaedra trust to say " where are all the animals". I laughted so hard. NeNe only mentioned Kim being the smalls boss when Kandi said " NeNe your the boss". The smalls can dish it but can't take it. Team Talls
You did the correct thing Sheree. If I were your friend i would have appreciated you telling me, and Kim did! You are a lovely lovely woman Miss Sheree, I hope you and your beautiful family remain poised for greatness, and ever so blessed!
You have managed to get into it with just about everyone on the show. You pulled Kim's wig. You cursed Ne Ne out and took a stranger's word over hearing her side. You attempted to dodge paying Phaedra and then tried to make her look incompetent. You started that mess by inviting Cynthia and not Marlo and got your mess handed back to you. Now you're starting trouble with Kandi.
My Granny always told me that misery loves company. Girl, you never lonely!
