During Sunday night's episode of the reality show, Shereé revealed to the ladies for the first time that she and Tyrone were an item, to their surprise.
"I feel like he gets me," she gushed. "We've been talking on the phone."
She also explained how she and Tyrone got together, and it's more than a little bit confusing: apparently, they were once friends but lost contact for about four years before rekindling their friendship about a year ago and started taking things to the next level. Here's the kicker, though: Shereé explained that they dated for about eight months before he went off to serve his prison sentence, and that she had no idea he was in legal trouble until he actually went behind bars. When he started his sentence, they split up, but absence made the heart grow fonder and they quickly got back together and Sheree officially has herself a felon bae now.
"I didn't know he went away! We broke up," she told her cast mates. "We stopped talking before he went to prison because he didn't want to get me involved in any of that."
She said, however, that after the dust had settled, they rekindled their romance while he was behind bars and things have been going well for them ever since. "You know what, honestly, I've gotten to know this man on a much deeper level," she adds. "Probably deeper than I've ever known anymore. We have nothing but time to talk and get to know each other."
Well, far be it for us to judge. We're happy for Sheree and hope this romance lasts longer than Tyrone's commissary cash.
