Last night, I expected to walk away from the latest episode of “Iyanla Fix My Life” even more disgusted with former NFL star Bob Whitfield than I had already been. But in the end, I actually felt a little compassion for the ex-husband of former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Sheree Whitfield, and more sad and disappointed by her actions than his, oddly enough.
In my mind, Sheree marks the second client in a row who has come on Iyanla’s show unwilling to do the work (DMX being the first). Most RHOA fans will admit Sheree has seemed phony from day one, but for some reason I imagined that act was for those cameras and she wouldn’t dare get on this show pretending. But after seeing how she acted on a show that was supposed to be about resolving issues, it appears phoniness is a way of life for her, from her farce of a marriage to the grandiose plans of Chateau Sheree — which Iyanla got on her about by the way.
Heading out to the lot which is still ladden with dirt mounds and the outline of an incomplete home, Iyanla asked Sheree how she could build an edifice like that but still need child support from Bob. She then proceeded to ask the former reality star what Chateau Sheree was about and when she said it was about her kids, Iyanla shut that down and told her the extravagant home wasn’t about her kids at all, but about her. And how could she really argue with that? The name says it all.
Caiming that home is about her kids isn’t the only pretending Sheree has done. Both she and Bob admitted to pretending to actually be in a real marriage and be happy. Sheree admitted that Bob didn’t even come home the second night after their wedding and he told Iyanla that he really wasn’t “into her at the time of her first pregnancy.” He basically thought the least he could do in that predicament was try to create a family unit for their unplanned child, hence their marriage. Last night he sang a totally different tune though, telling Sheree he had needed her to be his number one cheerleader when they were married but now that she’s made him out to be a deadbeat dad in the media, he’s done trying to have any type of dealings with her and would prefer to have contact directly with their kids rather than go through her. He said:
“I really don’t like you…and I feel like you don’t like me either. I think it’s almost best we stay unliked. I’m not going to love you from here on out. I’ll respect you because of who you are to my children.”
Sheree said she doesn’t like Bob either, but didn’t cop to being hurt that her ex-husband and father of her children could have such harsh things to say about her. Iyanla then scolded both parents, telling Bob shame on him for not liking the mother of his children and shaming Sheree for not liking her children’s father.
In the end, Bob and Sheree claimed they would work on co-parenting better but with the stipulations Sheree tried to place on Bob’s ability to see their son and daughter, Iyanla was clear with her that her anger and resentment toward Bob was overshadowing what was best for their kids. And since Sheree couldn’t even admit to harboring those feelings, the two would likely be in the same place once their session ended.
As of now, that appears to be true as the update at the end of the show reported that Bob was working on being a better father and noted that Sheree neglected to even provide an update on where things stand.

If you can’t wait ’til Beyonce makes her rounds back to the U.S. — or Drake drops another unrelated song about her — allow us to give you your first look into the Mrs. Carter tour which kicked off in Belgrade, Serbia last night.
We know most people are only interested in the costumes and the twerking. So far, we haven’t seen too much evidence of the latter yet, but we do have video of Baddie Bey singing a rendition of Whitney Houston’s classic song, “I Will Always Love You” in some sort of “Halo” remix fashion. And as far as the costumes go, you already know Bey’s style: all leotard everything. She shocked everybody with an interesting faux T&A number (scroll through to see it), but there’s a whole lot more sequined goodness where that came from.
Check out the footage of concert numero uno below as well as pics of opening night on the next few pages. Are you attending the Mrs. Carter tour this year?
I know we haven’t spoken since our time together in Yonkers, but you have been in my thoughts and on my heart. And what concerns me is what I’m hearing from your friends and family and those who love you. And what I’m hearing is that they are just waiting for the call. They’re waiting for the day they get the call. And you know what I mean.
But I’m not waiting for that call. I’m calling on you, and I’m not going to give up on you. I will not stand by and watch my brother die. Over the years, I’ve worked with many, many people who’ve struggled with addiction. With help, healing is possible.
I want you to remember the person you became in the final months of your grandmother’s life. That’s a clean life. You can be that man today and every day. Just remember what your son said to you, “I want a relationship with you that is not toxic.”
My brother, Earl, DMX, I support you. I love you and I’m calling on all of my beloveds, my tweeple, my Facebok, my masterpiece families, to send you their love and support.
I know that there is no valley deep enough, no gap wide enough, no mountain high enough that love can’t conquer.
My door is always open.
Let’s hope DMX decides to walk through that door. What do you think about Iyanla’s letter?
Producer and “rapper” Timbaland has had enough and he’s not taking it anymore.
According to TMZ, Tim filed a lawsuit last month against American Home Assurance Company for $1.8 million dollars because they have refused to cover the claim of a watch that went missing in 2010.
Timbaland says he paid more than $50,000 in May 2010 to take out an insurance policy that would cover quite a bit of expensive items, including a watch from Jacob the Jeweler. The watch was 18k white gold and draped in over 30 carats of diamonds.
Some kind of way, the watch went missing in August 2010. At that time, Tim was allegedly so upset about it being gone he got his family worked up and they called the police saying they thought he might commit suicide. While Tim told police once they arrived that he was never going to do that, he did tell them that he thought someone he knew stole the watch.
The police started an investigation but it never went anywhere.
But now in the lawsuit against AHA, Timbaland says he thinks his young daughter picked it up and “played with it until she got bored and discarded it somewhere.”
While the value of the watch has not been revealed, the $1.8 million covers the cost of the watch, interest and Tim’s lawyer fees.
There’s been no word from the insurance company as to why they won’t cover the claim.
Oh, the problems of the one percent nation. All I have is a little Michael Kors watch and I guard it as though the plans to change the world are sitting under the face.
Hopefully, all of this will be settled soon.

Ever watched a movie that was either so good but took you through too many emotional highs and lows, or so bad you wanted to throw your shoe at the screen, that you never want to see it again? Some movies are like that. They’re so gripping, so sad or so wack (that they give you a headache) that when somebody asks about it you have to go through that long sigh and eye roll and tell them why it’s good, but why YOU won’t be watching it again. The following on this list are like that, and I’m sure you’ll agree…be sure to tell us some great (or terrible) movies that you never want to watch again in the comment section!
