Real Housewives of Atlanta Bring on the Mama Drama in Season Two....
According to Rick Eldredge of Peach Buzz, one of my favorite sources for celebrity dish, Sheree Whitfield has more legal woes as of the beginning of season 2 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Obviously, her brash sense of entitlement doesn't work with her attorneys or the legal system. And her google eyed ex husband is flat broke. Bring on the drama mamas!
"Bravo may have to rename this show “The Legal Woes of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
As Buzz readers will recall, “RHA” cast member Sheree Whitfield recently dismissed an appeal that sought alimony from her ex-husband Bob Whitfield, saying the former NFL player was now broke.
Now Sheree herself is being sued for more than $87,000 by her former legal representative for the divorce, Levine & Smith.
The complaint, dated Feb. 2, 2009, and filed at the Superior Court of Fulton County, states that Sheree Whitfield owes $69,343.98 in principal going back to May 10, 2006.
Interest on the unpaid amount, based on a monthly interest rate of 1.5%, is $17,832.93 through January 31, 2009, according to the filing.
According to the complaint: “Defendant’s refusal to pay said debt as agreed constitutes an act of bad faith and has caused the plaintiff unnecessary trouble and expense, thereby entitling plaintiff to an award of its expenses of litigation, including reasonable attorney’s fees in an amount to be proven by the evidence at trial.”
Steven Montalto, the attorney representing Levine & Smith, told us the firm has been unable to find Sheree Whitfield in order to serve her the summons and a copy of the complaint.
Efforts to reach Sheree Whitfield for comment have been unsuccessful.
“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” is currently shooting season two."
