Sheree Whitfield Appeals Divorce Ruling
“The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Sheree Whitfield is appealing a Fulton County court’s refusal to grant her alimony and a new trial. We all know she expressed on the show she wanted a “seven figure” settlement from her ex-husband and former Falcon player Bob Whitfield. The case is scheduled to be heard Monday, January 12. Her attorneys painted her a high school graduate with limited skills to earn income, arguments for alimony she did not receive. This agreement meant she wouldn’t be able to stay at her $2.6 million home.She receives $113,422 a year from the divorce, not enough for her live the lifestyle she’s used to and clearly not at the level of what the hit Bravo show conveys. Sheree also received a lump sum of $775,000, shares of Whitfield’s retirement pension, nearly half of the marital property and child support.
