Bravo is down one housewife. Sheree Whitfield, one of the stars of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, announces today that she's leaving the hit show because she is tired of all the drama (though, several sources claim she was actually fired over diva behavior and exorbitant salary demands).
"After four solid seasons of helping Bravo build the show into its most successful Housewives franchise, I have decided to leave," the RHOA castmember tells Wetpaint Entertainment. "The direction the show is going in is no longer a fit for my lifestyle. I'm tired of the fighting and the cattiness."
She goes on: "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."
Whitfield has been part of the hit reality show since it's inception four seasons ago, and has definitely pulled her fair share of the drama. Amongst her most notorious moments are the infamous wig-pull of season two, when she snatched off fellow castmate Kim Zolciak's tresses, and numerous altercations with frenemy NeNe Leakes. Whitfield also authored one of the series' most famous catchphrases, "Who gon' check me, boo?"
Housewives fans agree that Whitfield's trouble-starting presence will be missed on the show, but we doubt this will be the last we'll be seeing of the well-toned diva.
