Although Sheree Whitfield is not a millionaire she returned to the Bravo show Millionaire Matchmaker looking for love. The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star tried previously to see if Iyanla could fix her and has now turned to Patti Stanger. Perhaps, Sheree will now look to option number three because neither of the previous ladies could “fix” her issues.
Many tuned into Iyanla, Fix My Life to catch Sheree’s episode only to be disappointed because she was not willing to do the work. The former reality star resisted Iyanla’s advice and seemingly failed to trust her motives. Instead of working to better herself she dismissed Iyanla as a life coach and claimed the entire show was staged to make her look bad. Sheree said she was totally misled and added:
What I did take out of it is I cannot control other people’s actions. I can only react, and I choose to do my thing.
Sheree was married to Bob Whitfield before experiencing a messy divorce. Whitfield is a former NFL Atlanta Falcons player but was active when the two were married. Sheree expected to receive a seven-figure settlement after the separation but her ex filed for bankruptcy and changed the game. She currently receives less than $3,000 monthly in support, after receiving a lump sum in 2012 of $75,000.
Despite her financial issues Sheree turned to The Millionaire Matchmaker to help her find love again. Patti did what she was asked and found three guys to try to impress the diva. Sheree appeared very cold at the mixer and as soon as the prima donna sat down with the guys she began firing off questions. Patti attempted to save Sheree by whispering in her ear in hopes of coaching her through the process. As expected, no one lived up to Sheree’s status leading Patti to believe she is not open for love. The matchmaker accused her of looking for flaws and stated:
Sheree needs to be open to the guys; to practice give and take.
Sheree fired back by saying a person needs to go on several dates to really get to know someone and explained that she did not get butterflies from any of the guys. Patti gave Sheree homework for one of her dates named Terry but she failed to complete it. When questioned, Terry lied and said they shared great conversation and he would consider a second date with Sheree and then immediately changed his phone number. Patti stated:
She needs a lot of work and is definitely a woman who men are attracted to, but if she does not let in love she is gonna be the old woman who lived in the shoe with 20 cats.
Sheree being the diva that she is has decided to sue Terry for not opening up his wallet or heart and not properly disposing his ex at least two years before attempting to get with her. She believes he entered the dating process on the show as a lying cheater. The diva returned to Bravo, this time looking for a possible mate. She left The Millionaire Matchmaker bitter and alone. From the outcome it appears Iyanla is not the only one that could not fix Sheree’s issues; Patti failed her as well.
