Neither Bravo nor Sheree Whitfield have confirmed rumors that she won’t be returning for the next season of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” but Sister 2 Sister magazine has reached out to some of its inside sources and they claim Sheree’s salary demands are what caused Bravo to wave bye-bye.
It seems Sheree was after that Nene Leakes money, asking the producers to significantly increase her salary to be comparable to the $750,000 her “very rich” castmate brings in. There’s no word on what Sheree’s current pay is/was but apparently it’s too far from that figure for the producers to even consider. Not confirming whether the rumor is true, one insider said:
“If she’s dropped … she’s in a f***ed up place right now.
“The way Bravo operates is that they don’t tell you [anything]. So, I don’t know. I heard people talking about it, but until one of the producers tells me, I don’t know it for a fact.”
I’d thought from this season’s episodes that Nene and Sheree were sort of in a “we agree to disagree” space and were done beefing with each other, but from a sneak peak of the upcoming reunion shown on “Watch What Happens Live” last night, these two are clearly still on very bad terms. It makes sense Sheree would want to match ends with her top rival’s bank account (especially after that Aston Martin repossession) but from the sounds of things that’s not gone happn’. Unfortunately for Sheree, she’s really the only housewife who doesn’t have anything else going on outside of the show, unless you count her She for Sheree fashion line. I’m feeling like this source right now, who said:
“Once it’s over, you gotta have money coming in. She had four years to be on [‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’]. She couldn’t come up with something? She didn’t put no money away?”
On another note, am I the only one shocked Nene is making $750K off of this show?
