After weeks of speculation, Sheree Whitfield is exclusively confirming to Wetpaint Entertainment that yes, she is leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta. After four seasons on the show, Sheree says her time on the Bravo series has run its course.

“After four solid seasons of helping Bravo build the show into its most successful Housewives franchise, I have decided to leave. 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.”

Sheree will continue to focus on her clothing line, She by Sheree. She’s also embarking on a new fitness venture to inspire people to live healthier lives.

Contrary to a previously published tabloid report, Sheree was not in New York City during the Bravo Upfronts. She was with her family on vacation in Puerto Rico. The same report says she was fired the day of the Bravo Upfronts and that she refused to attend the event as a result — she denies these allegations as well.
