For months, there has been speculation of Sheree Whitfield’s relationship with a man in prison. Initially, she had very little to say about the alleged relationship but now she’s basically confirmed that does, indeed, have a man behind bars. During an interview with US Weekly, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star shared details about her budding romance with a man named Tyrone. Apparently, things are heating up between Sheree and Tyrone despite his incarceration.
‘The Good Guy’:
When asked about the man she only refers to as “Tyrone,” Sheree actually had a lot to say. The 47-year-old reality star explained how communication is the most important factor in making their relationship work. “He’s a good guy. He’s like my best friend I can talk to him about anything,” Whitfield, 47, told Us. “We have great communication. He’s family orientated, he’s very spiritual.”
When Sheree appeared on The Wendy Williams Show, she publicly confirmed her relationship with her man. She revealed she and Tyrone actually “maybe six years ago” but reconnected “a couple years ago” when he reached out to her while in prison. It has been reported that Tyrone is serving time for wire fraud. Sheree admitted that, initially, it wasn’t easy to speak publicly about the relationship due to Tyrone’s incarceration as “it’s nothing to be proud of.”
Due to his circumstances, Sheree said, “His focus right now is getting out of prison.”
A New Beginning:
Despite Tyrone’s incarceration, the relationship appears to be much better than her previous marriage. She went on to reflect on some of the disheartening moments during RHOA season nine where she opened up about her marriage to former NFL player Bob Whitfield. “Last season there were some things revealed about my past and I’m really dealing with my past and being able to talk about it [this season].” Whitfield told Us. “I never wanted to talk about it. But with it coming out there have so many people who reached out to me.”
When asked whether or not she’d consider marrying again, Sheree offered a surprising response. She actually admitted believes there’s a chance she will tie the knot again. “Absolutely! I love love. Absolutely. Absolutely,” Whitfield told the publication. It looks like Sheree is deeply in love. Once her man is released from prison, she may be one of the next housewives with a wedding special.
