According to numerous sources, Sheree Whitfield has been fired and will not be a Housewife for season 11 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Shereé was fired after the filming of the season 10 reunion and is “very upset.” A source tells US Weekly, adding that her relationship with her boyfriend, Tyrone Gilliams, who is currently serving 10 years in prison for stealing $5 million in wire fraud schemes, may have played a role in the network’s decision not to bring her back.
“Bravo can’t film inside or even outside the jail. This is causing a problem with her storyline,” the source explains.
As reported, Kim Zolciak-Biermann — Sheree’s closest ally on the series — will also not return for season 11. Kim, another OG Atlanta Housewife, returned to RHOA in a friend role for season 10 after abruptly exiting the series during season 5.
This is not the first time that Sheree, 48, has been fired from RHOA. The She By Shereé designer left the show in 2012. She rejoined RHOA in a friend role for season 8 in 2015 and returned as a full-time Housewife the following year for seasons 9 and 10.
Part two of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion airs on Bravo on Sunday, April 15, at 8 p.m. ET.
