What goes on in the dark, will come to light!
Sheree Whitfield found that out the hard way when she filmed the tenth season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and producers exposed her alleged relationship with an imprisoned convict.
“Sheree feels blindsided.” After her romance with jailed felon Tyrone Gilliams was exposed, reports Radar. “The discussions between the cast and inclusion of it as part of the show caught her by surprise.”
The divorcee denies being in jailhouse love with Gilliams, 50, who she’s “known for decades and knew that Nene Leakes had knowledge of Tyrone and his criminal past,” the insider added.
“When cast members Kandi Burruss and Nene Leakes approached her about the rumors, she got defensive because she wasn’t comfortable going on record talking about their relationship,” the insider explained. “Sheree is skeptical because she doesn’t want the push back that former RHOA star Phaedra Parks got for being romantically linked to a felon.”
During a December appearance of Watch What Happens Live, the 47-year-old refuted engagement rumors to Gilliams — claiming they were merely “friends.” However, NeNe dropped the bomb in the explosive season 10 trailer by exposing that Phaedra is not the only Housewife with a fondness for felons. In a discussion with co-star, Kandi Burruss, NeNe describes Gilliams as a “con artist,” and then we see Sheree receiving a phone call from a correctional facility.
“Additionally, in the trailer they edited audio of the federal correctional facility greeting over footage of her taking a phone call making her feel like the producers have some back door plot to exploit her relationship for ratings,” the insider concluded.
Rumors swirled about Sheree visiting Gilliams frequently when he was jailed locally at an Atlanta federal correctional facility, before he was moved to a Missouri facility.
During season 4 of the Bravo reality series, NeNe and Sheree got into their famous “Trump checks,” heated fight over Tyrone Gilliams scamming them both out of booking appearance fees.
Sheree’s lockdown lover is currently serving a 10-year sentence at Yazoo City Low FCI for defrauding investors out of $5 million. His release date is scheduled for November 2022.
