Sheree Whitfield Opens Up About Incarcerated Boyfriend Tyrone Gilliams: "He's My Best Friend"
This new season of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" will be filled with lots of romance for the Georgia ladies. Sheree Whitfield sat down for an interview in which she surprisingly opened up about dating Tyrone Gilliams.
Tyrone Gilliams is currently serving time for a multi-million-dollar fraud case as Celebrity Insider previously reported. It seems that the sentence doesn't bother Sheree at all because it gives them time to communicate.
"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," the reality star tells People.
As far as his criminal past, Sheree explained that: "He just got caught up in the wrong craziness, and hopefully he’ll be back soon."
For now, Tyrone is scheduled to be released in 2022; however, Whitfield revealed that he's fighting to be released early.
People make mistakes and Tyrone really seems to be making the mother of two very happy so hopefully, when he does receive freedom he keeps himself out of trouble.
In the last season of "Real Housewives of Atlanta," we learned that Bob Whitfield allegedly physically abused Sheree during the course of their marriage although he seemingly brushed it off as if it was no big deal when she brought it up on camera.
She also addressed the situation during her People Magazine interview saying that she was embarrassed to tell her kids but she's glad that her experience enabled other survivors to speak up or seek help.
In previews for the upcoming tenth installment, Nene Leakes and Kandi Burruss are seen discussing Sheree's new boyfriend criminal record and referring to him as a "scammer." This hints that this season will probably be the messiest yet.
Do you think that Sheree and Tyrone are going to last?
