Sheree Whitfield and Sahara Davenport

Aw Lawd, did you hear about this mess? Sadly, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestant and drag queen, Sahara Davenport, passed away this week from heart failure. When news dropped of Davenport’s passing, fans of the show, and those affiliated with it were devastated. But TV Guide on the other hand, well, they were just confused. When they reported of her death on tvguide.com, they used a photo of former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, Sheree Whitfield. Yes, they confused Whitfield for a man. A pretty man, but a man nonetheless. Whitfield sent her condolences for the loss, but politely asked TV Guide to get their ish together and take her photo off the website. Coincidentally though, Andy Cohen claims Davenport modeled her look after Sheree, but still, you wouldn’t confuse these two…would you?
