‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star Sheree Whitfield has been ordered by a judge to pay her lawyers, according to TMZ.
Sheree Whitfield must pay legal fees
The law firm that represented Whitfield in her divorce from former NFL star Bob Whitfield sued the TV personality after failure to pay a reported $96K bill. Documents obtained by TMZ revealed that Whitfield paid about $69k to the firm but refused to pay the outstanding balance because she believed she was being overcharged. A judge recently ordered the reality star to pay the firm $119,674 - the remaining balance plus interest.
Life after ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’
Sheree Whitfield is no longer a cast member on the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ reality show, however, the single mother is collecting $75k in back child support payments from her ex-husband and entertaining new business ventures. The 42-year old spoke to Wetpaint.com earlier this year about her exit.
‘After four solid seasons of helping Bravo build the show into its most successful Housewives franchise, I have decided to leave’. She added ‘The direction the show is going in is no longer a fit for my lifestyle. I’m tired of the fighting and the cattiness’.
‘I want to be part of something that empowers and inspires women to not only be healthy, but to treat themselves with respect. I wish the rest of the women the best of luck. I’m thrilled to say I’m now a free agent and am already fielding offers’.
