Despite rumors she was fired, Sheree Whitfield would like us to know it was actually her idea to quit the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ reality show.
It’s no secret Sheree hasn’t had the best season this time around, from relying on child support to stay afloat in a dismal economy, building a house she couldn’t finish paying to build, accusations she’s a liar and a fraud over her divorce settlement with ex-husband Bob Whitfield and being branded the least successful of her cast mates, it’s been pretty tough. Perhaps, a few reasons she has decided to walk away from the successful franchise.
In Sheree’s official statement to Wetpaint.com she says,“After four solid seasons of helping Bravo build the show into its most successful Housewives franchise, I have decided to leave. The direction the show is going in is no longer a fit for my lifestyle. I’m tired of the fighting and the cattiness.”
“I want to be part of something that empowers and inspires women to not only be healthy, but to treat themselves with respect. I wish the rest of the women the best of luck. I’m thrilled to say I’m now a free agent and am already fielding offers.”
The statement goes on to say, Sheree will continue to focus on her clothing line, She by Sheree. She’s also embarking on a new fitness venture to inspire people to live healthier lives.
Check out the foot work for Rihanna‘s highly anticipated single and video for “Where Have You Been”. The track is actually one of my favorites from her latest album, ‘Talk That Talk’. Rihanna isn’t known to be the best dancer but I think she did pretty well here.
When I was first asked to blog about what just happened in my life, I shunned it. Now, I realize that due to my life being an open book and my “relationship” being on national TV, I should.
One thing a lot of you don’t know about me is I’m a 100% committed to anything I put my name on. In a relationship comes humility. When I decided to do this show I vowed to be open, and honest about all aspects of my life that I could. I’m human! I don’t portray myself to be anyone I am not. I go to the grocery store in sweats and sneakers like everyone else. Because I’m on TV doesn’t mean I don’t hurt or that I don’t go through the same trials and tribulations as everyone else. We, Reality Stars, are put in a very vulnerable position when we sign up for these shows. No matter what we go through, the good, the bad, the ugly, when we walk outside we get recognized and judged. I’m not going to put on a front like I’m okay. My heart hurts.
Do I think Dezmon loves me? Yes! Do I think what he did was wrong? Absolutely. Are we done…forever? Honestly, I don’t know. Readers can say I’m dumb if I go back, but with relationships come mistakes. I was lied to and lesson learned…I entertained it on Twitter. I let the drama get to me despite being told to ignore it. That was my immaturity in this experience coming out. I admit that. Yes, I’m embarrassed, humiliated and broken. But I’m strong. Regardless of what happens I will be okay. Do I love him? Yes. Is that enough to stay? At this point, no. I entertained the mother of his son because I trusted what I was told and I stood by him as I should have. Was I the fool? Yep! Do some find it funny that I have egg on my face? Sadly yes, but that means they are lacking happiness and love in their own lives hence them basking in another person’s hurt. Ignorance is bliss but it’s also dangerous.
TIME magazine has just released their pick for the ’100 Most Influential People’ of 2012. Among them, Rihanna, Jermey Lin, Adele, Chelsea Handler, President Barack Obama, Viola Davis and a long list of “doers” not accustomed to being in the public eye but have managed to influenced us, in one way or another.
As TIME puts it, “The nature of influence changes. The word originates from the medieval idea that a magical liquid emanates from the stars to influence our actions on earth. Modern influence often comes from the magical ability of technology and social media to overcome time and distance and reorder our perceptions. Before microphones and television were invented, a leader had to stand in front of a crowd and bellow. Now she can tweet a phrase that reaches millions in a flash. Influence was never easier — or more ephemeral.
Which is why we try to choose those people whose influence is both lasting and, with a few notable exceptions, laudable.”
Well, isn’t this something. Channing Tatum will be taking it all off for the ladies. The ‘Magic Mike’ movie trailer is here, and aren’t we just a little bit excited! Take it off!
Veteran stripper Magic Mike Martingano (Tatum) teaches a new stripper (Alex Pettyfer) about the occupation. They work at the club Xquisite, owned by the former stripper Dallas, played by Matthew McConaughey. Tatum certainly doesn’t disappoint showing off his dance skills and this isn’t the first time he shows off his moves. If you all remember the 2006 film, ‘Step Up’ then you’ll know he can actually bust a move or two. Check it out below.
Just a little tid bit, Tatum was actually once a male stripper so this isn’t the first time he’s had to strip for a group of women. He may have actually been the perfect fit for this role. Looking good Channing.
Rumor has it, Royce Reed, 29, of ‘Basketball Wives’ is getting married to boyfriend Dez Briscoe, 22. Well, that’s so according to cast mate Kenya Bell.
It was just Monday night, Royce and the mother of Dez’s son and ex-girlfriend, Christina Nero, got into a heated twitter war of the words over accusations Dez is still pining for his ex. In fact, Nero posted some pretty damaging phone messages, “in Dez’s own words”, just what he’d like to do to her.
In his defense, however, Royce accused the woman of copy, pasting and forging the message photos to stir up some drama. But why would Nero go through such trouble? Well, it may be because of the hit reality show last episode. Royce and Dez, for the first time on the show, displayed their love and affection for one another and even discussed having a future together.
Could this be a woman scorned or is Royce being delusional? Not sure, but if Royce’s history with men serves right, she’s living in “la la land”. Guess, we’ll have to wait and see just how this one plays out.
At the moment, however, Royce has yet to confirm or deny Bell’s twitter message on her engagement. But, it true, congratulations! Or should I say run?

Television pioneer, Dick Clark has passed away at the age of 82. The ‘American Bandstand’ and, later, ‘Dick Clark’s New Years Rockin’ Eve’ producer and host suffered a massive heart attack following an outpatient procedure, says publicist Paul Shefrin.
Clark passed at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, “attempts to resuscitate were unsuccessful,” his publicist stated.
At the moment his family hasn’t decided on a public memorial but says there will be no funeral.
After his stroke back in 2004, following a Type 2 Diabetes diagnosis, Clark’s health has suffered tremendously over the years. So much so, he cut back on his television appearances and relinquished hosting duties to his annual ‘Dick Clark’s New York’s Rockin’ Eve’ special. The show has since been hosted by ‘American Idol’s own host, Ryan Seacrest.
Following the news of Clark’s passing, many celebs have shared their own thoughts and fondest memories of the important role he’s not only played in their lives but Americans all over the country. Here are a few celebrity tweets.
After her social media meltdown, which resulted in deleting her twitter account and going missing, Nicki Minaj was spotted arriving in London recently greeting a crowd of fans.
But that’s not why we’re here. Take a look at that outfit!
The rapper paired a bright pink fur hooded jacket with blue and a Donald Duck looking pattern imprinted underneath, a white and black top with, WAIT! Is that yellow and black frills at the bottom?! #PAUSE. Then, to top it all off she wore black and white star printed leggings and snow boots!
And, of course, it was all assorted with her ever changing wig collection. This time, she opted for a long blonde wig.
Vanessa Williams has revealed in her latest book, “You Have No Idea”, that she had been sexually abused at 10-years-old and had an abortion during her teens.
During her interview with “Nightline” she says, “It happened one night where she told me, ‘come over here,’ I didn’t know that it was wrong, but I knew that it wasn’t right because I wasn’t supposed to tell anybody,” while explaining her encounter with an 18-year-old women during a family trip.
On the experience heightening her sexual curiosity she says, “I think I was highly sexualized because I was in fifth grade and I had this experience. Because it feels good, you’re like, OK, well this is supposed to be normal. That’s not normal for a 10-year-old to be seduced.”
