"They said I was the number one trending topic on Twitter last night," says Sheree Whitfield, the morning after Thursday's season premiere of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
There was a very good reason the Sheree tweets were flying—um, just take one look at the very heated on-camera argument she had with her party planner Anthony. When Anthony snapped to Sheree, "You better check yourself," she hissed what is destined to be her signature line, "Who's gonna check me, boo?"
After watching the scene unfold on TV, Sheree told me, "Looking at it on television, it looked so bad, but can you imagine me just sitting there?"
She added, "I think there are opportunists out there who want to get their name out there. He thinks he's going to benefit from it, but to me, you look like a fool. You look like an ass on TV. Who wants to be remembered like that?"
Of course, Anthony isn't the only drama we'll be seeing with Sheree this season…
In a promo for the new season, Sheree is shown not only arguing with Kim Zolciak-Biermann, but actually pulling on her…wig!
Sheree declined to reveal details, but laughed, "Everybody wants to know if it came off. Don't you want to see what's under there, too? You'll just have to wait and see."
But enough about catfights.
New topic: Sheree is looking for love.
The single mother of two says her ideal man likes to have fun and is family-oriented and spiritual.
"If he can be easy on the eye, that's even better," she said. "And someone who communicates. That was one of the problems in my marriage. We failed to communicate. We started out talking about everything but then once we got married, it felt like we shut down. We couldn't talk."
And judging from her run-in with Anthony, we know Sheree has no problem vocalizing how she feels.
"You don't want to be on the wrong side of Sheree. You really don't," she said. "I tell them all the time, 'Don't let the cute face fool you!'"
