Who gon’ check her boo????

Sheree Whitfield Speaks On Her Tyrone Gilliams Relationship

Sheree Whitfield is in love with her best friend—who just so happens to be behind bars. As previously reported after initially denying it, Sheree’s admitting that she’s happily booed up with Tyrone Gilliams, a felon incarcerated for wire fraud, coincidentally just like Phaedra’s ex-husband Apollo Nida.

Sheree recently opened up about her romance with ESSENCE Now and gushed over the man she dated 6 years ago, lost contact with and then began chatting with again in 2015.

According to Sheree news spread about her felon bae who’s a “great communicator” and “very supportive” after his property was stolen and that picture of them booed up behind bars leaked.

Furthermore despite his sentence, Tyrone’s a “good guy” who’s proclaiming his innocence.


Sheree: “I got someone who’s my best friend, he supports me, I can talk to him about anything. He’s a good guy.

Host Makho Ndlovu: “He’s a good guy even though he’s incarcerated…”

Sheree:”Everyone makes mistakes and I’m not saying he made a mistake, he is still proclaiming his innocence, his legal team has filed motions to deal with that as well. I”m saying no one’s perfect so I’m not here to judge him or anyone else.”

She also revealed that her bond with Tyrone is “probably the strongest” she’s had (Bye Bob Whitfield!) and added that it’s because they can’t have a physical relationship.

“The bond is even stronger, this is probably the strongest bond I’ve ever had,” said Sheree. “You gotta think about it we have nothing but time to talk and get to know one another. A lot of my other relationships, we didn’t communicate. It was more physical so you take the physiciality out…,” she added.”Me, I like to be stimulated on a deeper level.”

And as for those Phaedra Parks comparisons, Sheree didn’t even think about Phaedra’s situation with Apollo Nida before dating Tyrone.

“Not really what Phaedra went through, but this is new for me,” said Sheree. “I never dated anyone incarcerated before so it was definitley new for me. It’s not easy to penetrate his here so it takes time. But we’ve been putting in that time, it’s been two years that we’ve been talking.”

Oh and as for her ex-husband Bob who was seen trying to woo one last time on RHOA season 9 before admitting to physical abuse, they’re STRICTLY coparents.

“We’re just coparenting,” said Sheree. “Well the kids are grown so we don’t really have to be involved in each other’s lives.”

Sheree seems super happy with Tyrone, she evens said she’s open to marriage.

Not everyone’s as peachy about Sheree’s relationship as her; hit the flip to see who recently threw her some not so subtle shade.

Kenya Moore just couldn’t help but be shady when asked about her RHOA costars judging her shotgun elopement to Marc Daly. According to Kenya, none of her fellow peach holders were happy for her except for Cynthia Bailey. Furthermore, anyone could find a felon like Phaedra and Sheree.

Via The Grio: 

“Phaedra and Porsha were the main ones who were criticized and ridiculed me because I wasn’t married and you see where they are,” said Kenya. “None of them reached out to me. Not a one,“ she says. “They have been invested in a negative way so when it’s something positive for my love life, they’re not happy.”


“They think it’s funny but at some point it just makes you look stupid,” she later added. ” You can go anywhere to get a man. You can go to prison to shop for one like Phaedra or Sheree. Just stop it. I’m independent and self-made for a reason. Can you just be happy for a 46-year-old woman who is getting married for the first time? F*** ‘em.”

Now isn’t that so nasty and so rude?
