Perhaps former Housewife Sheree Whitfield was trying to save face when she told everyone she was leaving RHOA on her own terms but here comes NeNe Leakes with some salt to sprinkle on her game! During an interview with Vulture, NeNe shares that Sheree was indeed fired and the stories about her deciding to leave were just a ploy to save face.
Do you know why Sheree exited the show? Do you still talk to her?
[The producers] chose not to pick up her option for this past season. I know she’s out there telling people that she decided to leave the show, but from what I know that is not what she decided to do. That is what they decided to do. She put out whatever reports she wanted to put out and I don’t think they tried to challenge it because they don’t really give a shit at the end of the day. She wasn’t invited back, Lisa Hartwell wasn’t invited back, DeShawn Snow wasn’t invited back. I don’t talk to any of those girls. I feel like they’re all gone for a reason, and I don’t think any of them were smart enough to stick around for this long, and I don’t think any of them were smart enough to use this platform in ways they could have used it. They’re gone and I don’t think that they’re missed.
Welp! Guess there goes that! NeNe is definitely an example of someone who’s turned a reality TV role into a viable budding acting career. As much as I hate reality TV, I have to admire how she’s managed to seize this opportunity and flip it in her favor. That’s the best that these reality show ‘stars’ can hope for.
