It hasn't always been smooth sailing for exes Shereé Whitfield and Bob Whitfield. But these days, one of them seems interested in rekindling their romance nearly a decade after they divorced as Bob has definitely been making some moves to try and woo The Real Housewives of Atlanta mom as of late. But Shereé isn't sure she's ready to move him out of the friend zone just yet.
"You know, I'm actually loving where we are now. I wish we could have been in this space years ago. I think it would have been so beneficial for our family. And definitely for our kids seeing a positive environment with their mom and dad," Shereé told The Daily Dish about being on better terms with the former football pro. "But I'm loving it right now."
Though, she isn't exactly shocked that he feels that way about her. "I am not surprised because I am a really great woman, a real catch and sometimes people don't realize what they have until they no longer have it," she added.
Together the couple has two kids, Kairo and Kaleigh. Still, Shereé is playing coy about what's next for her and their father. "You'll see it play out in the season. Bob is, he's fun and that's one of the things that I fell in love with him about," she said. "But at the end of the day, so much happened and transpired in our relationship previously that I feel like we need to work on why those things happened and move forward and we need to address a lot of things. And it's just all fun for him right now. Everything's either sex or a joke where he can't be serious, so he's got to step it up."
As we saw following Kairo's DUI, Shereé and Bob took on different roles in parenting their kids and the Atlanta mom admits she's the stricter of the two. "I'm there all the time," she said, adding that because he's around less he appears more "fun."
Shereé revealed she is currently dating, and shared whether a man other than Bob could steal her heart. "I am dating," she said. "I am dating; no one has [my heart] totally. I'm still on the market, looking. Just enjoying life."
And any potential suitors (and Bob), might want to pay attention to her wish list for a guy: "I think I've always been kind of looking for the same thing, maybe a few things may have changed. I've always wanted a great guy who's family oriented, god fearing, honest," she said. "I need someone who can communicate. And that was the problem with Bob and I. I think we talked so much before we got married, but once we got married the communication was like cut off. So definitely someone who communicates, makes me laugh."
