Sheree Whitfield and NeNe Leakes were never the best of friends on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but during Season 4 — Sheree’s final one on the show — their relationship really took a turn for the worse.

However, in an interview with Essence.com, Sheree maintains that the two hadn’t been close in a long time. When asked about NeNe, Sheree revealed, “I don’t think we’ve had a friendship for some years.”

“I’m surrounding myself with confident people so I’m just living life and having a good time and doing me,” she continued.

And while “doing me” for Sheree won’t involve another season of RHoA, Sheree is supportive of any possible replacement.

“I wish whoever gets the spot the best of luck.”
