Watch Shereé Whitfield’s Boyfriend, Martell, Make a Memorable RHOA Debut

Plus, hear Shereé share more about their backstory as a couple.

By Allison Crist

Sanya Richards-Ross is throwing her husband, Aaron Ross, an extravagant Roaring ’20s themed birthday party on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 15 premiere, but based on a first-look preview (which you can watch above!), they aren’t the only couple in the spotlight. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

Why? Because Shereé Whitfield and her man, Martell Holt, are making their RHOA debut as a couple — and yes, they are a couple. As Shereé puts it in a confessional, “Martell and I, we are officially dating.”

Unfortunately, not everyone approves of the pairing. Kenya Moore is particularly hesitant to give Martell her approval, and she makes it clear why when she reveals that she and Kandi Burruss apparently “heard that [Martell] was also dating someone in Atlanta.” Not only that, but Kenya says Martell tried to DM her. Suffice it to say, he doesn’t take the accusation very well, and before you know it, Kenya is yelling at him.

The party confrontation ends there, but only because the episode rewinds to “four days earlier.” Now we’re at Chateau Shereé just as she’s greeting Martell and dishing on their relationship in a confessional interview. “I met Martell through a mutual friend. He’s on a reality show, and we really enjoy each other’s company,” Shereé explains of the Love & Marriage: Huntsville cast member. “Despite what you see on TV, he’s never shown me anything but respect.”

The only problem? “Martell lives in Huntsville, Alabama,” she notes, “but I would love for Martell to move closer.”

Distance aside, Shereé added that she’s just “really happy” that she “didn’t give up on love” when her years-long on-and-off relationship with Tyrone Gilliams came to an end while she was filming RHOA Season 14.

With the mention of the L-word, a producer asks if she’s “in love” with Martell. “I didn’t say that,” Shereé responds, prompting the producer to add, “You said you were happy you didn’t close the door to love.”

“Yeah, it’s still open,” Shereé says with a laugh. “You tried to get me.”

See more of the couple (and hear what Shereé has to say about Martell’s “big d--k energy”) by watching the full preview above before RHOA Season 15 premieres on May 7 at 8/7c on Bravo. You can also get a look at everything to come this season below.
