Sheree Whitfield of the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ announced on Tuesday that because of dislike over the direction of the show, she no longer wants to be a part of it.

Whitfield’s Tuesday statement released on the web read, “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.”

The Bravo network confirmed Sheree’s exit from the show on Wednesday.

RadarOnline is reporting that a source is saying while Whitfield claims to be leaving the show on her own, she was fired because of demands she was making and jealousy she had over other cast members who were getting more attention then her.

“Sheree was jealous of Kim (Leakes) and NeNe (Zolciak). She felt like she wasn’t getting as much attention, they all started together but it’s been unbalanced ever since,” the source revealed to

The source continued, “Sheree was fired. She was demanding more money, and that didn’t go over well with show executives. They are tired of dealing with her diva attitude and demands.”
