Would you want to see this original cast member back? Sheree Whitfield is reportedly coming back for her peach on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The “who gone check me boo” OG was part of the show’s inaugural season through the end of season 4. She says she chose to walk away after four seasons to focus on her bitter custody battle with her ex-husband, retired NFL star Bob Whitfield of the Atlanta Falcons.
But Whitfield didn’t stay away for too long. She returned as a friend of the show in season 8 and left again after season 10, with rumors that she was lowballed in terms of pay. During her reemergence on the show’s scene, she briefly reconnected with Bob. their reunion was cut short after Bob made insensitive statements about alleged past physical and verbal abuse of Sheree. In her final season, she clashed with most of the cast, with the exception of Kim Zolciak. She also showed off her budding romance with an ex and nemesis of Nene Leakes, convicted scammer Tyrone Gilliams.
With a cast shakeup happening after producers found the ratings and drama of season 13 to be lackluster, the buzz is that Whitfield and self-proclaimed southern belle Phaedra Parks are both returning.
She sparked speculation that she is returning shared a cryptic post yesterday to her Instagram account. In the photo, Whitfield is holding a bedazzled phone and smiling, captioning the picture. When the phone keeps ringing at some point u just gotta answer...#tbt #howcanihelpyou #timeisvaluable“. Parks commented, with several emojis including the famous 100 sign, seemingly coinciding rumors that she’s too making a comeback.
If she does make a return, Whitfield has a lot to discuss. Gilliams was released from prison earlier this year after serving a lengthy sentence for fraud. He and Whitfield reconnected in recent years after they lost contact when he was sentenced. The two are still an item.
