Sheree Whitfield revealed on the last season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta that her ex-husband Bob Whitfield was physically abusive toward her. And this season, she finally sat down with her three children – Kairo, 21, Kaleigh, 18, and Tierra, 32 – to talk about what she experienced as a woman who survived domestic violence.
So, as Sheree has been fearlessly sharing her story about the abuse that happened behind closed doors, we viewers have been rooting for her to not only heal from what happened but to make better choices in men. Unfortunately, she has chosen a man behind bars. And that man’s name is Tyrone Gilliams, 51, an alleged scam artist.
On this season of RHOA, Sheree has been very open about her love for and plans with her prison bae. On Sunday’s episode, Sheree was hoping that Tyrone would get an early release, so that they could work on “their” home – finishing up a mancave for him and getting some new workout equipment. Oh! And getting married, of course. But all of these plans, according to Sheree depended on whether Tyrone would get an early release.
“I don’t know the realistic release date for Tyrone, but it better be this year. I’m talking about very soon,” she said in her confessional.
But Sheree’s bubble has burst.
According to Radar Online, Tyrone’s early release was denied by New York federal court. Tyrone was sentenced to 120 months in 2013 for securities fraud and wire fraud charges in a scheme to steal $5 million from investors. He is now slated to be set free on Nov. 14, 2022.
So, this new info begs the question: Will Sheree actually wait on him? I think her youngest daughter Kaleigh said the thing that hopefully wakes Sheree up.
“There are a lot of fish in the sea, and you go for the jail bait,” she said. I mean…
What do ya’ll think?
