Sheree Whitfield is ready to walk down the aisle again following the recent release of her formerly incarcerated boyfriend Tyrone Gilliams. The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum previously introduced fans to her long-distance relationship during her last season on the show. Fans watched the couple’s flirty conversations where they planned for a future together. Now, that Tyrone is a free man, it’s said that Sheree is already wedding planning.
The OG housewife brought the drama during her seasons on the show. She appeared in seasons one through four before leaving and returning as a friend in season eight before being upgraded to a full-time housewife in season nine. Her early seasons followed her messy child support battle with her ex-husband Bob Whitfield. Fans can remember her ex defending himself in court against her and her lawyer Phaedra Parks. Sheree’s loss in the court appearance led to tension with Phaedra. Sheree has entertained feuds with much of the cast including NeNe Leaks and Marlo Hampton. While she filmed a few of her dates over the years, Tyrone appeared to be the only man who captured her undivided attention. The only problem was, he was in prison serving out a 10-year sentence for wire fraud.
However, the bureau of prisons shows that Tyrone was recently released and transferred to a halfway house in Philadelphia, All About The Tea reports. The two lovebirds are happy to be reunited and are reportedly already planning a wedding. “Sheree and Tyrone are soul mates, they knew when he got out that the two would marry,” an insider told the outlet. But, Tyrone isn’t fully in the clear. His charges stem from his 2013 sentence for having stolen $5 million from investors in a Ponzi scheme. At the time, the former Penn State basketball player would fund a lavish lifestyle with the stolen funds. Now, FBI records say he still has to pay back the $5 million in restitution in addition to three years of supervised release after he leaves the halfway house.
During Valentine’s Day, Sheree appeared to hint at how happy she was on the holiday. “Happy Valentines Day to u….may #love always win,” she captioned a series of selfies. Fans of the show wouldn’t mind seeing her return to the series and share her relationship onscreen. She did appear alongside some of the current housewives despite all the OGs having since left. Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey are currently the longest returning housewives on the cast following NeNe Leakes’ exit last September.
Most recently, Drew Sidora and LaToya Ali were the newest housewives added to the show. The two have come with their own fair share of drama. But, can play nice with each other when the time is right. Kenya Moore has appeared to bury the hatch with Marlo after years of being at odds. But, her longtime feud with Porsha Williams still festers along the surface. A return from Sheree might be the shakeup the cast needs to bring the drama that the viewers love.
