Since The Real Housewives of Atlanta debuted in 2008, Shereé Whitfield hasn’t suffered any fools — always appearing as the strong, confident tough girl and rarely getting vulnerable in front of the cameras.RELATED: Sheree Whitfield Is in Some Hot Water Over Her New Mansion
But on Sunday’s all new episode, the 47-year-old reality star broke down in tears when confronted with what she claimed were memories of the alleged physical abuse she had experienced while married to ex-husband Bob Whitfield.
The emotional moment happened while the two were on vacation in Maui, Hawaii — during an already explosive couple’s trip.
Bob was there as part of his continued efforts to woo Shereé back. The two divorced in 2007 after 7 years of marriage and 14 years together — and have spent the last decade or so involved in legal and emotional squabbles.
While they’ve put most of that behind them, co-parenting and focusing on their friendship as of late, Shereé hasn’t been ready to rekindle their romance just yet. “It’s like ice-skating uphill with Shereé,” Bob explained. “We had a tough road and I f—– it up a little bit. I’ve put a lot of wounds on her, so she’s calloused towards me.”
Shereé’s reluctance, it turns out, was for good reason.
“I feel like he still hasn’t owned up to a lot of things that he did,” Shereé explained to friends Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams. “And it’s not just the infidelity — you see how immature he still is.”
