Sheree Whitfield doesn’t feel like she and ex-husband Bob Whitfield made any progress as parents while working with Iyanla Vanzant.
Add Sheree to the list of people that feel disillusioned by their experience on “Iyanla: Fix My Life.” After DMX said the show made his life worse, the former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star has also chimed in about her dissatisfaction from the show.
On Saturday, Sheree and Bob tried to work out their differences on the OWN show so that they could work better as a team to raise their kids. Bob admitted that he doesn’t really like or even respect Sheree anymore, and Sheree questioned why he’s so inconsistent with seeing their children.
Ultimately, Iyanla decided that Bob and Sheree are just not in a place where they can effectively co-parent. The assessment came after Iyanla tried to get the reality star to see that her dream house Chateau Sheree was more about her ego than it was providing a home for her children.
Although Iyanla stated that the former Bravo star had “the energy of a victim,” Sheree let it be known that she felt “attacked” during taping.
But the criticisms of the experience have not stopped there. Sheree sent a statement to RumorFix.com, expressing that she didn’t really get what she signed on for when agreeing to do “Fix My Life.”
“Since leaving the ‘Housewives,’ I’ve been at a different place in my life, a place of healing and self-empowerment, ” Sheree explained. “When Bob reached out to me about doing this show on co-parenting, I was excited because I thought we were both on the same page and equally wanted to work towards mending our relationship so that we could more effectively co-parent.”
She continued, “Even more importantly I thought it was an opportunity to inspire single parents in our situation.”
In her opinion, the show did nothing to help them as it only highlighted what she did wrong. “Once shooting began,” Sheree stated, “I felt misled because the line of questioning was centered more on accusations of my shortcomings as a wife versus how we can begin to resolve our issues.”
