Sheree Whitfield has fully moved on from her abusive ex-husband Bob Whitfield. The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star has a not-so-new boyfriend that made his debut on the show on December 17 — sort of.
The mother of three received a call from Tyrone Gilliams. The man wasn’t physically on the hour-long program because he’s incarcerated; however, he is stirring up as much gossip as if he was there in the flesh.
Gilliams is currently serving a 10-year sentence for stealing almost $5 million from unsuspecting victims to support his lavish lifestyle.
Nene Leakes, Kandi Burruss, and Kenya Moore all gathered to voice their concerns about the 47-year-old falling in love with a “scammer.”
Although Sheree claims to not have known about the allegations before reconnecting with Tyrone, she has known the prisoner for many years. He was even mentioned in an argument between her and Nene seasons ago!
In tonight’s episode, Sheree was asked by Porsha Williams if she was married already (due to the prison engagement photos that Celebrity Insider reported on that were leaked months ago) and her answer was “no.”
She added that if Tyrone continued to act the way he does when he is released, she will marry him!
As to why she’s so smitten with her beau, she’s explained to People Magazine: “You know what, honestly, I’ve gotten to know this man on a much deeper level. Probably deeper than I’ve ever known anyone. We have nothing but time to talk and get to know each other. He’s a good guy and, you know, he supports me. I can talk to him about anything. He’s my best friend.”
Sheree gave Tyrone a second chance after she found out that he only stopped talking to her to protect her from the case that was going on at the time.
Do you believe Sheree and Tyrone will last?
