Bob Whitfield – Relationship Status

Bob Whitfield was the wife of The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Sheree Whitfield. Bob was a football player for the Atlanta Falcons from 1992 to 2003, but we met a couple of years after he stopped playing pro ball. Sheree alleged that during their marriage he was abusive. They have two children, Kaleigh and Kairo, who were born in 1996 and 1999. He pays Sheree child support for both children but was not forced to pay alimony by the courts. Because of her lack of formal education and no skilled trade or profession, she appealed the decision of no alimony but lost the case, as well as the home they shared.

The last time Sheree Whitfield was on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, she was dating Tyrone Gilliams. Their relationship was a long-distance one as Tyrone was in federal prison serving a 10-year sentence. When the RHOA album appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen: @ Home on Sunday (May 10), she offered an update on that friendship. Andy also wanted to know how things currently are with her ex-husband and dad to two of her kids, Bob Whitfield. The pair divorced in 2007 and later opened up about their difficult past during Season 9 of RHOA.

The March 19 episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta was chockful of the show’s usual shady shenanigans. But the episode was also the final nail in the coffin for the relationship between castmate Sheree Whitfield and her ex-husband. Bob Whitfield, who has spent much of season 9 trying to rebuild their relationship after a messy and painful divorce years ago. The couple had an emotional sit-down during the cast trip to Maui. There Sheree accused him of never really acknowledging the struggles that he put her through after the divorce.

“I feel like me being able to talk about it and release it, it’s going to do something for me,” she said during her confessional. “But as far as he and I, it’s over”. The saga that is Bob and Sheree Whitfield’s past has been a storyline since the very first season of the popular franchise in 2008. By the time the first episode aired the divorce proceedings surrounding their seven-year marriage as coming to an end. “We started really good friends then things changed”, she said during the first-ever episode of the hit reality show.

Much of the drama between the exes that played out on the show was based on accusations. He was refusing to pay child support for the couple’s two children Kairo and Kaleigh. Sheree was often accused of marrying him for his money. From throwing drinks to court appearances, the duo endured their emotional turmoil on camera. By the taping of the most recent season, Sheree says they had developed a friendship. By this point, she had left and made her comeback on the popular show. The couple had already learned to be cordial for the sake of their children.

The show’s recent episodes have revealed that abuse was also a big factor in their marriage. During the getaway to Maui, Sheree awkwardly confronts him about being physically abusive to her and choking her. He clumsily denied her claims and went on to make crass jokes about the ordeal. Which was heartbreaking to fans. This car scene was the catalyst that forced Sheree to decide that a new relationship with her ex would never work.
