When the Atlanta OG first joined the show during Season 1 in 2008, she'd recently gone through divorce proceedings with her former husband, Bob Whitfield. In Season 15, she was dating Martell Holt... and somewhere in between there was an on-and-off relationship with Tyrone Gilliams.

"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," revealed the She by Shereé creator while discussing her ideal partner during a December 2016 conversation with The Daily Dish. "Definitely someone who communicates, makes me laugh."

So, what is there to know about the lucky guys who've gotten close to Shereé over the years? Have they checked all the boxes? Scroll to take a look at Shereé's relationship and dating history.

Shereé Whitfield's Ex-Husband Bob Whitfield

Bob and Sheree Whitfield

Shereé married Bob, a former NFL offensive tackle, in 2000. Together, the pair welcomed two children: Kairo and Kaleigh Whitfield (Sheree also has a daughter, Tierra, from a separate relationship).

They divorced in 2007 after seven years of marriage — and right before RHOA began airing.

“We started out really good friends, then things changed,” Shereé explained during the reality show's very first episode.

Nevertheless, Bob remained a fixture in Shereé, the children, and RHOA viewers' lives. During Season 9 of RHOA, Bob and Shereé revisited their relationship. While things didn't work out romantically the second time around either, they were able to tackle some hard conversations about past domestic abuse.

"It was tough to even talk about that or even have those conversations with even with Bob or any of the girls — and in front of millions of people," Shereé told The Daily Dish in April 2017. "This is something that I just kind of covered up and for a long time. It was definitely emotional, but it was something that I felt afterwards, it's like, 'Oh' cause I didn't realize I was still holding on to all that pain."

"I don't want to say it felt good to be able to talk about it and to be able to try and get over it 'cause I probably couldn't have gotten over it unless it came out, unless I talked about it, unless we had these discussions," she added. "So it was definitely therapeutic for me and I felt like I needed to do that to be the best woman that I can be — not just for myself, but in a relationship."

These days, Bob and Shereé "get along good," the socialite noted during a May 2020 appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

When’s the Last Time Shereé Whitfield Spoke to Tyrone Gilliams?

Though they knew each other (both romantically and platonically) for years beforehand, Shereé and Tyrone's relationship became official in 2016. At the time, he was in federal prison; their long-distance love became a major plot point on RHOA.

"I definitely see myself getting married again in the future. I love the institution of marriage a lot. I really feel like Tyrone may be the one," Shereé told The Daily Dish in March 2018 while Season 10 was airing. "I know this man. I trust this man. I can talk to him about anything. He respects me and loves me unconditionally and me with him. I just feel like he's my best friend. I feel like he's my soulmate and what we have, these feelings weren't just built on a physical relationship. We've gotten to know each other on a more emotional and mental level."

After he was released in 2020, Shereé and Tyrone's years-long, on-and-off love affair didn't survive. Fans watched the end of their relationship play out during Season 14 of RHOA (which was filmed in spring 2022) when Tyrone ghosted her by failing to show up for a rendezvous in Philadelphia.

If we're not counting a FaceTime cameo during the Season 14 reunion, Martell made his official debut as Shereé's beau during Season 15 of RHOA. The new relationship first made headlines in July 2022, when Shereé shared there was a mystery man in her life during an episode of WWHLSoon after, Martell was revealed to be her guy (though she initially told Andy Cohen during an April 2023 WWHL appearance that she didn't want to put a label on anything).

No stranger to reality TV (and reality TV drama), the Huntsville, Alabama native has been a cast member on Love & Marriage: Huntsville since 2019 — alongside his now-ex wife, Melody Holt. 

Shereé and Martell were first shown getting cozy during an at-home date night in Season 15 Episode 1 — which aired on May 7, 2023 — when the businesswoman confirmed labels were finally allowed.

“Martell and I, we are officially dating," Shereé said during a confessional, noting that she met the entrepreneur through a mutual friend. “Despite what you see on TV, he’s never shown me anything but respect."

In a May 2023 Essence interview, she noted the relationship was "going great."

“We’re really good friends. We enjoy our time when we’re together. He makes me laugh so much and that’s one of the things I really like about him. And I’m just kind of taking everything slow and enjoying life. Did I think at this age I would be out here dating? No, absolutely not. But things happen,” she said. “I’m never closed off to finding the one or love. And so I’m just on my journey trying to be intentional and just making sure I got the right person.”

Shereé offered some new insight into her relationship with Martell during a June 2023 appearance on WWHL. When host Andy Cohen asked for an update on their relationship, she demurred.

"Martell and I are still friends, absolutely," she said.

In a July 31 interview with Glamour, Shereé talked generally about her hopes for her romantic future, but tellingly didn't mention Martell.

"​​​Oh, I’m never gonna give up on love," she said. "I am a hopeless romantic, I’m never gonna give up on love."

"I feel like there is someone out there so special, so amazing for me," she added. "I do want to get married again... I love the institution of marriage. I love being in a committed relationship. So I’m not giving up on love."

But, after playing coy about her relationship status, Shereé confirmed that she is single and no longer dating Martell during the “Viva Las Atlanta Peaches” panel at BravoCon 2023.

“I made that decision a while back,” she said. "I don’t want to be dating someone and it’s a lot of drama and I’m getting pulled into that drama.“

"I am not interested in dealing with a man who has a lot of drama,” she added.

But, Shereé did say that she still communicates and is friends with Martell.
