That being said, the show also focused on everyday aspects of Whitfield's life, such as how she experienced raising her children as a single mom. The end of the fourth season of Real Housewives of Atlanta marked Sheree Whitfield's last appearance on the show until seasons 9 and 10, where she made a comeback and finished the series off.

Bringing her back was a calculated decision by the show's executives.
During the show, it was also revealed that Sheree has a daughter from before she knew her ex-husband.

She lost the appeal, and her ex-husband also took their home as part of the proceedings.
