(November 24, 2011) – As much as we love the Real Housewives of Atlanta and definitely don’t want to say this, in many ways Shereé Whitfield exemplifies everything that is unappealing about Housewives shows in general. We say that because she’s all bark and bravado, without even an ounce of fun to share.
When she’s not in an angry rage at someone, she’s pretentiously bragging about how entitled and privileged she is. It makes us wonder how it is possible that there is no joy in this lady’s life.
After all, she’s extremely pretty. She’s not even remotely dumb. She has more than life’s basic necessities and yet she can never seem to muster even a moment of happiness. That’s sad and it’s definitely not entertaining, even slightly. Here’s to hoping that while we watch her move through the demolition process of building her dream home, she’ll be able to create a remotely pleasant story line so we Real Housewives of Atlanta can root for her in her post divorce pursuit of happiness. If not we’re going to ignore her, but until then, here’s what’s happening in Ms. Whitfield’s life.
Building Chateau Shereé
Shereé rolled up to episode three’s demolition site, where her contractor, Andrew is clearing land and knocking down a modest house, in preparation of building Chateau Shereé, her new home.
It’s almost painful to listen to Shereé talk about the new house, not only because she sounds so pretentious but because we’re nearly positive that it is going to bankrupt her. We just know it because while she says she is going to build a simple place where she will focus on the necessities, she goes onto mention that it will have ballroom, massage room and lounge area with a DJ booth. “I have pretty expensive tastes,” Shereé tells us proudly, as through this is something to boast about.
We cannot help but to note that billionaires never speak like this. And we know this for a fact because we work for them. In that top, out-of-sight world of big money, limousines are called “cars” and mansions are referred to as “cottages.” Everything lavish is spoken about in understated terms. We hope Shereé can hold onto her money for at least the eight months Andrew will need to build the 8,000 square foot home. We also hope she finds a good man to love and accept her. That girl needs it. But she’s never going to find him until she learns how to spot a good one and treat him well enough to want to stay by her side. And the chances of that happening are slim until she looks into the man’s character and heart more closely than she examines his wallet.
