20 Questions with Shereè Whitfield
CN: “Who gon check me boo?” Best housewife line ever. Where are the t-shirts?
Sheree: I had t-shirts! I need to put them back out! They'll be on the website soon, absolutely. They're coming back out.
Relaxed or natural?
I am natural. Been natural for seven years. I use Miss Jessies Curly Buttercream, Moroccan Oil, Pureology and Phyto.
Where do you get those fly weaves?
Thank you so much! I'm actually creating a hair line. I shouldn't even be talking about this right now, but I'm partnering with the girl who has been providing me with my hair. It's really good hair, no chemicals or anything on it which makes it easy for any stylist to work with.
If "Real Housewives of Atlanta" was "Survivor," who do you think would get voted off the island first?
I would say NeNe.
On last night’s show you said, “Donald Trump recruited NeNe for Celebrity Apprentice because they needed an irate, crazy bitch, and that's what they got.” How do you really feel about Nene?
"My motto is this, the same people you look down on going up, are the same people you'll be looking up to when you're coming back down. You can't do that."
Do I even need to tell you? [Laughter] I just feel that, I'm happy for anybody that's doing their thing and taking their success to a whole 'nother level — that's wonderful. But, in that process, you can not look down on people. My motto is this, the same people you look down on going up, are the same people you'll be looking up to when you're coming back down. You can't do that. You still have to remember where you came from and be humble. And I just feel like she's not that way.
Of all the new business ventures this season, which one do you think is the most viable?
They say sex sells and I think Kandi will do good in that business. The sex toy market is not going anywhere. I think Phaedra's venture into the funeral home business will do well too - people will always need that service, unfortunately.
Which girls from the cast do you kick it with off camera?
I'd have to say Kim.
Have you ever done anything on the show that you regretted after seeing it?
Absolutely. This season, going into the courtroom with my ex for child support, I was told that the cameras wouldn't have access. So the day of, I 'm thinking they were just going to watch me go up the court room stairs, but they actually came inside. I really didn't want my kids seeing that on TV — me and their father in court.
What's your favorite drink?
It's a new vodka called Vuqo. It's fabulous! It's made from coconut. I mix that with pineapple juice and a splash of cranberry.
If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, with whom would it be?
Mac or PC?
If you were a Disney princess which one would you be?
What’s the last book you read?
If you weren’t on RHOA, what would you be doing?
I think I'd be doing something in health and fitness.
Biggest pet peeve?
I like action. I don't like when people talk a lot, like when people say they can do XYZ, that's pretty much all they're doing is just talking. Show me.
On a typical day, what do you eat?
At breakfast, I'll have egg whites, veggies in it, either chicken or turkey sausage and some fruit. At lunch, I'll have some fish, veggies or a salad. I'll have a frozen shake in between and I do like snacks, so I snack a bit between meals. And finally, at dinner, I'll have chicken and veggies.
I try to stay away from a lot of carbs like white breads and potatoes and things like that. I love sweets, like maybe a cookie or a small piece of cake, that's how I get my carbs in, my bad carbs.
Oh my gosh. You gotta come exercise with me! At least three days a week I do a kettlebell class. I may spin three times a week. I may add in a kick boxing class and then I try to walk the park at least two or three times a week.
That's my me time. A lot of people don't take that time, but we all need it. That's my time for me, every morning, at the gym. It's not just about being healthy, it makes me feel good and jump starts my day.
How goes the acting?
It's going. I've received quite a few scripts for plays, people wanting me to read. But, with the taping, I had a lot going on, so I couldn't really do it. So now I'm actually about to get back out there, and I have an acting coach that I'll be starting with. I'll see where it goes.
Did you ever hear anything else from Dr. Tiy-E Muhammad?
He called me one more time to apologize because it ended kind of nasty. So, we got that out of the way and I have not talked to him again.
Since him, have you found prospects that are worthy of your time?
I'm out in the dating world, but I haven't found that Mister Right that makes me want to settle down. No one has swept me off my feet. It's hard to find that guy in Atlanta.
Are you watching? What did you think of episode one of the new season??
