There might be a new cast member or two headed to “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” but Sheree Whitfield said she can never be replaced.
“No one can replace me. I can’t be replaced,” Sheree told S2S Publisher Jamie Foster Brown.
“They can’t be looking for a replacement for me, but they’re looking for someone to add to the cast,” said Sheree, who is leaving the hit Bravo series after four years on the show.
There were rumors that Sheree, one of the series’ original cast members, was ousted from the Bravo hit show, but she asserts that she chose to call it quits. As for gossip that she cried and begged for producers to keep her, Sheree said that’s not even her style.
“You see my character,” Sheree said. “I’m not even that girl.”
Sheree explained that during the time blogs reported that she was in New York crying over her “RHOA” dismissal, she was really vacationing in San Juan.
“They sent for me to come to New York and I’m begging, I’m crying—are you serious? No, I was in San Juan, uh, actually at the St. Regis. Y’all can look it up,” she said.
While many question why Sheree would choose to leave a hit show that serves as her claim to fame, she said it was just her time.
“It’s just my time,” she said. “It’s done a wonderful job at putting me in a great position where I have opportunities, and you know. I can’t complain.”
However, she did complain about the stress the show was adding to her life.
“It feels like a weight lifted off of my shoulders when I tell you. I am so serious. It was a lot of stress. So right now, I’m just taking time out to kind of enjoy life,” she said.
