Sorry Boo: Judge Throws Out Sheree Whitfield’s Restraining Order Request Against ATL Blogger
Last week we told you that former Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Sheree Whitfield filed a petition with the Georgia courts to have a protective order honored against an Atlanta blogger, who goes by the name of Tamara Tattles. Due to the fact that Tamara visited the construction site of Whitfield’s home, which she refers to as “Chateau Sheree,” walked around the property and snapped a few photos, Sheree pleaded with the courts, testifying that she was afraid for her life, alleging that Tamara was stalking her and requesting a protective order against the blogger. While the courts did honor her request for a temporary restraining order, they denied her motion for a 12-month protective order against the blogger. With the case being over, Tamara wasted no time spilling the details of her court proceedings against Whitfield with Tamara Tattles readers. A portion of her rather detailed blog post reads:
“I finally had my day in court today with Ms. Sheree Whitfield. First, a bit of background. In Georgia, if you go to the courthouse and tell them that you are in fear of your life because someone is stalking you they automatically give you a TPO and set a hearing within ten days to hear the evidence. It is not necessary to provide any evidence at that time, because all of that will come out in the hearing. So today was the day for the hearing. Sheree was asking for a 12 month stalking order of protection against me.
In court this afternoon, the judge heard both sides of the case. I explained that I went to Chateau Sheree and took some pictures on one occasion. I testified that I had never seen Sheree anywhere ever; nor had I ever attempted to contact her in any way. I also explained I was given permission by the men in physical control of the site to enter the property. I also mentioned that Sheree does not own said property…
Sheree testified that she was afraid for her life. She stated that I was parked outside her property at all hours of the day and night. Under questioning, she was unable to state any time that I had threatened her or harassed her. She admitted that she was not the property owner. She said she was the builder. She said she was there almost every day with her children and they were afraid of me…
The judge ruled that there was nothing to support a stalking protective order. Her request was denied. Because Sheree claims to be in fear for her life he indicated that he was sure I would be willing to agree to stay away from her. Which of course, I was fine with as I have never been around her or had any contact with her in the first place.”
And there you have it.
Is this the outcome that you were expecting?
