Real Broke Housewives of Atlanta

0000050450_20080728114237It seems the stars of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta really aren’t living the high life they portray on the show.

Whitfield recently dismissed her appeal to get alimony from her ex-husband, former NFL player Bob Whitfield, because he’s broke. I guess “She by Sheree” isn’t raking in the bucks like she thought.

Burruss enjoyed success with the ’90s R&B group, as well as a brief solo career. Her greatest successes recently came from songwriting as she’s penned songs for Mariah Carey, Destiny’s Child and Alicia Keys. She also co-wrote TLC’s 1999 hit, No Scrubs. Sounds like she might actually have a little money of her own. The drama aspect remains to be seen.

    i feel like the real housewives of atlanta doesn’t count. they should’ve just kept it at oc and nyc. broke is not in those bitches’ vocabulary.

    • @AYL: I like the Atlanta show, but they could’ve done a better job finding people who actually fit the premise of the show. Of course, all this is exactly what Bravo wants: Drama. That’s why they dumped the one legit person on the show. She wasn’t crazy enough.

    BUT DO THEY HAVE A COUNTESS!? it’s a deal – breaker for me.

    viva la nyc.

  4. well i guess everyone needs to save money in these hard economic times… even the housewives.. will save all of us money!

  5. it seemed like the only one who realy had money was deshawn. eric had been playing for years. nd remember there contracts are gauranteed unlike football. Sheere said she dont know wht a budgt is ? she better find herself a super walmart.and nene was renting a home. who rents?U dont see ny or oc housewives renting.Y did Lisa loose her oldest kids? thats suspect. she aint all she wants us to think she is. She by Sherry will be available soon at ur nearest Target….u go rich bitches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!lol

  6. Bravo said Deshawn was too human(her statement) Actually Deshawn was the only one who gave the show some sort of credibilty. She is wealthy due to her husband, but Eric & Deshawn talked about how broke they were in college, and at the time Eric wasn’t expected to go pro. So, karma seems to be taking a toll on the ones who trashed ppl for not buying at the level they was, and the ones who married for the money. Deshawn and Eric did it the right way & it wasn’t sickening to watch them enjoy their sucess and love for one another. Deshawn should be brought back to show that not every black sport figure is to fail in money & love after their career is over. Why is it that when a man loves his wife, when a wife gives to her church and TRIES her best to act like a lady, she no longer is someone we should enjoy watching? This is a perfect example of what is happening to our society, if you loved watching Deshawn, contact Bravo, and maybe they will bring her back when 1 of the others can no longer afford to live big.

    • @Southernlady: I could not agree more. Deshawn was the only one on that show who didn’t come off as some silly, trifling, gold-digger. She and her husband seemed to have a genuine relationship based in love for one another, not money. And I liked that she was trying to start a charity and do something meaningful with her time and money, rather than pursuing vanity projects like a singing career or clothing line (which were both ridiculous since neither Kim nor Sheree had any singing or designing talent).

      It’s a shame television shows go for the worst people, and let the normal folks fall away.
