The Riches of Sheree Whitfield
How rich is Sheree Whitfield? As of early-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is as much as $250,000, earned through success in her various endeavors, but which has been considerably reduced by business losses and the costs of raising her family. Aside from reality television work, she’s also handling business endeavors, and has worked in the entertainment industry as an actress. As she continues her career, it is hoped that her wealth may increase somewhat.
Early Life and Business Career
Very little information is known about Sheree’s family, and there is no information regarding her education. It is known that she was raised by a single mother alongside a sibling though specific details of them have not been shared publicly. While she was born in Hawaii, she moved to Shaker Heights, near Cleveland, Ohio along with her family where she would be raised,.
Even after her high profile marriage, she continued to pursue a path to try and establish a name for herself. She started her own business, an upscale clothing boutique she named Bella Azul as she felt that her fashion sense would be good enough to find success in the retail industry. The business lasted for a few years, before she decided to close it and start a new one, her own clothing line called “She by Sheree”, still focused on trying to fulfill her dream in the fashion industry.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta
In 2008, Whitfield agreed to become one of the main cast members of the reality television show “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”, eager to do so after the success of other “The Real Housewives” series. The show is the third installment of the franchise and has now been running for 11 seasons. She appeared as a main cast member during the first to fourth seasons of the show, before leaving to pursue other endeavors. She did appear during the eighth season as a friend, before returning as a full time cast member for the ninth and 10th season. However, after that she decided to leave once more to concentrate on her business.
The show received favorable reviews, though it’s been criticized for fabricating storylines to keep things interesting. It is considered the highest rated installment of the entire franchise, and the most watched series on Bravo. The success of the show has led to several spin-offs featuring some of its cast members. The show was notable for Whitfield as it gave a bit of insight into the end of her marriage, and the struggles she had were documented by the show. She later revealed that she left after the 10th season because she was being offered lower pay.

Sheree’s appearance in “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” opened the door for her to try her hand at other endeavors in the entertainment industry.

She also had a guest role in the legal drama series “Reckless”, which aired on CBS but was short lived. She also had a small role in “Scary Movie 5” an installment of the film franchise that did not feature Anna Faris and Regina Hall.
She’s also tried her hand at other reality television shows, and participated in an episode of “Ghost Hunters”, in which a team of paranormal investigators visit places reported to be haunted. She appeared in a show called “Millionaire”, and then started working on a book entitled “Wives, Fiancees and Side-Chicks of Hotlanta”.

Ex-Husband, Marriage, and Divorce
Bob Whitfield previously played in the National Football League (NFL) and was drafted during the 1992 NFL Draft as the eighth overall pick by the Atlanta Falcons for whom he played for 11 years to 2003, then had a brief stint with the Jacksonville Jaguars. In 2006, during his final season, he played with the New York Giants, and received a lot of criticisms for drawing costly personal fouls due to head-butts; numerous critics gave him the name “Head-butt Bob” as a result, which led to him being benched for subsequent games, and the following year, he announced his retirement through Sirius NFL Radio.While he did leave his playing career behind, he already had an established business career which began in 1993. He is the founder of Patchwerks, Inc which offers production, recording, and mastering services for various high profile music artists. He’s worked with Nelly, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, and many more.
According to several sources, Sheree and Bob married in 2000, and their marriage lasted for seven years before the couple decided to divorce; they have two children together. The details of their divorce have never been shared publicly, though it could be seen through “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” that the divorce was taking its toll due to disagreements with the settlement. She had hoped for a seven figure settlement, but was not able to receive that amount. The reason her net worth decreased significantly is due to paying legal costs of trying to gain more money from her divorce settlement, and subsequent child support payments, a move which has been repeatedly denied. Even so, she received an not insignificant amount of $775,000, but which as noted earlier, has since significantly diminished for various reasons.
