Sheree Whitfield Freaking Out Over #RHOA Producers Putting Prison Romance With ‘Con Artist’ On Blast!

What goes on in the dark, will come to light!

Sheree Whitfield found that out the hard way when she filmed the tenth season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and producers exposed her alleged relationship with an imprisoned convict.

“Sheree feels blindsided.” After her romance with jailed felon Tyrone Gilliams was exposed, reports Radar. “The discussions between the cast and inclusion of it as part of the show caught her by surprise.”

The divorcee denies being in jailhouse love with Gilliams, 50, who she’s “known for decades and knew that Nene Leakes had knowledge of Tyrone and his criminal past,” the insider added. 

“When cast members Kandi Burruss and Nene Leakes approached her about the rumors, she got defensive because she wasn’t comfortable going on record talking about their relationship,” the insider explained. “Sheree is skeptical because she doesn’t want the push back that former RHOA star Phaedra Parks got for being romantically linked to a felon.”

During a December appearance of Watch What Happens Live, the 47-year-old refuted engagement rumors to Gilliams —  claiming they were merely “friends.” However, NeNe dropped the bomb in the explosive season 10 trailer by exposing that Phaedra is not the only Housewife with a fondness for felons. In a discussion with co-star, Kandi Burruss, NeNe describes Gilliams as a “con artist,” and then we see Sheree receiving a phone call from a correctional facility.

“Additionally, in the trailer they edited audio of the federal correctional facility greeting over footage of her taking a phone call making her feel like the producers have some back door plot to exploit her relationship for ratings,” the insider concluded.

Rumors swirled about Sheree visiting Gilliams frequently when he was jailed locally at an Atlanta federal correctional facility, before he was moved to a Missouri facility.

During season 4 of the Bravo reality series, NeNe and Sheree got into their famous “Trump checks,” heated fight over Tyrone Gilliams scamming them both out of booking appearance fees.

Sheree’s lockdown lover is currently serving a 10-year sentence at Yazoo City Low FCI for defrauding investors out of $5 million. His release date is scheduled for November 2022.

Do you think Sheree is dating Gilliams? And if so, is she taking a risk? Sound off in the comments!

    Nene and Kandi are in everybody’s business. Nene’s life wasn’t that stellar until Greg rescued her from the pole. Since that wimp Todd put a ring on it Kandi is full of herself and always talking about other people’s relationships. I lost respect for Todd after he exposed his sickly mother to a pack of wolves so he could marry a meal ticket.

    I can’t deal with this broad … I don’t care about her stupid house, CTE-plagued wonky-eyed ex-husband, her (merely average) son, and certainly not about whatever prison thug she’s bangin’. Clearly her role is to stir the pot; she needs to just stick with that.

      How do you bang someone who is imprisoned? (Asking for a friend)

        Rofl!! Conjugal visits maybe?

      • just me…


      • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

        Hahaha … um, depending on the facility … through the bars, or through that little glory hole in the glass they speak through? I would draw a pic, but I don’t want to get us raided.

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    That was one of the most epic fights ever in ATL”s history!!!

    • Indeed. Im so happy Nene is back.

      • Elizabeth Fisher

        I’m not the biggest fan of Nene’s, but I’ll take her if it means that Phaedra isn’t coming back and Nene is going after Porcha

  • More importantly what’s up with her wig? Is she digging through Nene’s trash or what?

  • Sugar in my tank


  • Bryan

    Is their some kind of decent man shortage in Atlanta where these middle aged women now must scour the penal system for lovers???? LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ” Even though he is not up for parole, he is my soul mate!!!!”

  • Oh Sheree…..anything to pay for the chateau….even at the cost of your repuatipn and dignity. Bravo checked you boo!!

  • RRRobin

    What is with the black cast suddenly being blonde? Zolciak imitations? Wigs on sale?

    • jpinphx

      the wrong shade of blond at that.

  • wiseone

    I wonder if Nene took company with ex-cons when she was gyrating on a pole.
