Every Thursday, celebrate #TBT with us as we open the vault to share photos of Bravolebrities before they were famous--or revisit memorable moments from our shows. This week, we re-visit Sheree Whitfield’s volatile meeting with her party planner.
The Season 2 premiere of RHOA found Sheree Whitfield at a crossroads. With her recent divorce in the rearview mirror, she deemed it was the perfect time to throw an “Independence Party.” However, when her new party planner, Anthony, continued to over-promise and under-deliver, Sheree became nervous that he could very well botch her celebration.
With many unanswered questions still lingering only four days before the event, Sheree decided to meet with Anthony to make sure all the party details were ironed out. When confronted with her concerns, Anthony’s increasing aggression eventually led to a verbal threat, to which Sheree responded with one of the most infamous come back lines in Housewives history.
From wearing her actual shades indoors, to the proverbial shade she threw in Anthony’s direction, we cannot get over how amazingly chill Sheree is when she puts him in his place with that one simple question: Who Gon’ Check Me, Boo?
Sheree’s famed line from the altercation went viral spawning everything from YouTube remixes to an entry for the phrase in the Urban Dictionary.
All jokes aside, Sheree was rightfully appalled by the entire fiasco.
“There are no words to express how I was feeling," she wrote in her blog at the time. "I was in total shock and in complete disbelief that a so-called professional person can be so rude, tacky, unprofessional, unethical, violent, and incompetent. Anthony disrespected my family, not only did he call me out of my name repeatedly, he also disrespected my mother whom which he has never met! I think there are opportunists out there who are willing to do whatever it takes to secure a spot even if it means risking their livelihood for fame."
