After weeks of speculation, Sheree Whitfield exclusively confirmed to Wetpaint Entertainment that yes, she is leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta. After four seasons on the show, Sheree says her time on the Bravo series has run its course.
“After four solid seasons of helping Bravo build the show into its most successful Housewives franchise, I have decided to leave. The direction the show is going in is no longer a fit for my lifestyle. I’m tired of the fighting and the cattiness.”
“I want to be part of something that empowers and inspires women to not only be healthy, but to treat themselves with respect. I wish the rest of the women the best of luck. I’m thrilled to say I’m now a free agent and am already fielding offers.”
Sheree will continue to focus on her clothing line, She by Sheree. She’s also embarking on a new fitness venture to inspire people to live healthier lives.
In a statement Wednesday, Bravo wished the former cast member well.
“We have enjoyed working with Sheree as part of The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” a network spokesperson told Us. “We wish her all the best in the future.”
