Bravotv.com: What inspired you to write a novel?
Sheree Whitfield: With my debut novel I wanted to put reality television in print. Readers won’t be able to help but question what is fiction and what is reality. Unlike most reality stars turned authors, I chose to write about the lives of fictional characters instead of writing a non-fiction book about my own life just yet. I decided to give readers that same type of drama in print, only this time I get to rule how things turn out with my pen…and even get to include a few scenes that aren’t made for television. I’m finally going to give readers exactly what they’d expect a reality star to pen.
Bravotv.com: What's the juiciest part of your novel?
SW: My novel has been coined "a reality show in print." What's the juiciest part of any reality show? When drinks get to flying, when tables get to flipping, and wigs are getting shifted. All that happens between the pages of my book. I'm going to have to say, though, that the juiciest part of my novel, which also mirrors real life, is when secrets get told. When the pot of tea tips over and spills in my novel, everybody at the table gets burned. Even the person reading it is going to feel the heat. You have no idea what messy is until you've witnessed the mess that spilled tea can make.
Bravotv.com: What did you think of parkour?
SW: I truly enjoy fitness, and challenging myself and my body is something I like to do quite often. I love changing up my workouts, but Parkour was on another level...I felt like I needed a Superhero outfit and powers to get through. It was definitely more difficult since I've had a knee injury in the past and actually left with a toe injury!
