On the last episode of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta, Sheree Whitfield admitted to being physically abused by her ex-husband former NFL baller Bob Whitfield. Since the hit reality show debuted in 2008, Sheree never appeared as a woman who was allegedly physically abused by her husband, she has always appeared to be strong, confident and independent. As a woman who never gets emotional but this time, she displayed her emotions in front of the cameras which makes her more human and now we understand why she has that strong woman facade.
The ladies are all on a couples trip in Hawaii, Sheree broke down in tears when asked about her memories being married to former NFL Bob Whitfield. That question took her back, a place she never wanted to return, she claims he allegedly physically abused her. Bob sitting right beside in a van with Phaedra and Kenya who witnessed it all, they were just as surprised as I’m sure the fans and the viewers were. Bob claims he wants to win his wife back, but he laughed in her face when she spoke about the abuse.
In her mind, Bob hasn’t changed, he will go back to the allegedly abusive man she married and had children with. Would he like it if his daughter who has with Sheree comes home one day from school and tells her parents that her boyfriend has been hitting her? No man would want that but when you have children and they witnessed the abuse, those children grow up with abusive tendencies.
The emotional moment happened while the two were on vacation in Maui, Hawaii and Sheree’s hesitance towards jumping up and remarrying him, was for good reason. He should be trying to get her back with that crazy eye, she is probably the best thing he has ever had but even at the bar in Hawaii he was trying to get Peter to flirt with him. He hasn’t changed at all, like I always say, a leopard never changes its spots.
“I feel like he still hasn’t owned up to a lot of things that he did,” Sheree says Phaedra and Porsha. “And it’s not just the infidelity — you see how immature he still is.”
That immaturity was on full display during a car ride in Maui. Looking back at how bad things were during their split, Bob joked about his violent thoughts. He talked about choking her, if she could breathe, he didn’t choke her hard enough, these are things his children will see and have to go to school and get ridiculed because of his whack a$$ behavior.
Bob brings up a situation he and Sheree had:
“After we split, we were in Las Vegas, I was driving her and she fell asleep, and I was like, ‘Yeah, it’d be easy for me to take the seat belt off of you and hit the breaks.’ So she can fly her ass through the window, you know?”
He then said that he didn’t remember ever physically hurting her in the past. That’s nothing to joke about and we have all seen the funny, goofy and fun loving Bob, we don’t know the alleged physical abuser, when he brought up the choking incident, we were all in shock.
“I never hit her,” he said, asking her. “Have I ever physically touched you? Have I ever smacked you? Choked you? Have I ever choked you? For real, have I? I might have forgotten.”
When Sheree admitted that he had, he kept questioning her, “could you still breathe?” he said. “I don’t remember choking her, but if I did, I’m sorry. ‘Cause maybe I didn’t choke you hard enough.”
That was so ugly for him to say and so insensitive, Sheree was hurt beyond belief, she burst into tears. Kenya tried to comfort her and Phaedra was telling Bob to apologize to his ex-wife. I know Sheree didn’t want to break down in front of Kenya or for Kenya to know her personal business when it came to Bob and the alleged physical abuse but at that time, she accepted Kenya’s comfort but it was still hard for her.
“I always said that he was like a Jekyll and Hyde,” she said. “The funny one, he’s nice, I like him. But there’s two sides. There’s a bad side — a dark side — a frightening side to Bob.”
Bob did his best to console his ex-wife, holding her hand and telling her, “You know I don’t like to see you cry. And you know I don’t like to be the one to make you cry. This is why we’re growing together. Because we’re willing to do this again — if it’s for the sake of the grown kids.
“I honestly thought Bob was a changed man,” Sheree said. “But this Bob right here is taking me back to the cheating and the abuse. I don’t want my girls to ever be treated like that from a man. And then here I am thinking I might give that person a second chance? I’m f—— stupid.”
The next day Bob has Sheree to meet him at the jewelers where he was trying to apologize by buying her a diamond ring. When she brought up the incident that occurred the previous night, a smirk appeared on his face and Sheree couldn’t take it anymore, she isn’t playing with him.
“The only reason I can only laugh about it because I’ll be crying,” he said. “And there are times I’ve shed a tear because of the things I chose to do. But those ain’t the things I’m doing now. That was then.”
That was enough for Sheree, she ran out of the jewelry store without a diamond, you can’t fix a situation with jewelry or money. Sheree was really thinking about giving her ex husband another chance but this Hawaii trip proved who he really is.
“I am thankful that I invited Bob on this trip,” she said in the cameras. “This is a test and he failed. He has not made the changes that I needed him to make. So this is kind of like an eye opener. I’m glad I can see now. I dodged a bullet.”
A lot of time you have no idea who is being battered and bruised, women are great at covering up, making up excuses, pretending like it didn’t happen or convincing themselves this is not who he really is but in reality, that is who he is. She has no choice, she has to walk away from him for good, maybe now she concentrate on a new relationship.

Married To Medicine Recap!
Married To Medicine Recap!! Dr. Heavenly claims to be a relationship expert but she needs to stick with being a dentist or maybe going back to college to understand what a relationship expert really is. What qualifies her as being a relationship expert, because she calls her husband “daddy?”
I have much respect for Dr. Damon, he is always calm, very humble but he is the King in his castle, he never raises his voice but he stands his ground and supports his wife whether she is wrong or not. Dr. Heavenly is certainly blessed to have Dr. Damon as her husband, but she goes too far. She can be as outspoken as she wants too but the questions she asked Toya and Dr. Eugene was not her business and I applaud Toya for going off. Yes we see Toya and for us, she does seem a little disrespectful towards her husband but we see more of that coming from Quad towards her husband. The questions she asked the couple were for her benefit and not for the couples.
Dr. Simone and Cecil have always planned the couple trips through out the years and they have always been informative and helpful, they have always participated with their own issues but Dr. Heavenly refused to share any of her own problems with the group and that wasn’t fair. She claims that the issues she and her husband have are minor, bull that is bull donkey. No marriage is perfect and neither is hers.
Once she began to ask questions she seemed to pushed everyone’s buttons, it was a disaster on the beach! Jackie finally breaks down emotionally and allows herself to be open with Curtis in front of the group but Curtis doesn’t seem to see the big picture. He married a doctor, she knew she was a workaholic but for Dr. Heavenly to ask Dr. Jackie what did the other woman he cheated with do that she didn’t do? That is a hurtful question which shouldn’t have been shared for the group, but shared with Dr. Jackie and Cecil. Dr. Jackie was a trooper though, she opened up, I don’t fault her for wanting to fight for her marriage, I just wish Curtis would fight for her just a bit more.
Dr. Simone and Cecil hit the fan, especially when Dr. Simone asked him if it was okay for him to invest their money without discussing it with her first? Cecil went ham, he got loud, he told Heavenly that he and his wife have discussed it, the situation was over but Heavenly kept pushing. He stormed off the beach, he felt bamboozled but he acknowledged that he was wrong. Cecil and Dr. Greg followed him and they calmed him down. He apologized to his wife and the group but this is not over, Dr. Simone has already filed for divorce.
Quad and Greg are in a rock and a hard place. I feel what Quad is saying, she just wants appreciation and as her husband he can’t continue to throw up the fact that he takes care of her, he’s supposed too but Quad is very disrespectful to her husband and its embarrassing. Maybe if she shows his appreciation for her, maybe their marriage can last. Paying bills for the both is what a man is supposed to do, he can’t continue to throw that in her face when she has a job and college educated.
Mariah shares with Dr. Jackie that she has been where she is now. Yes, her husband has cheated on her and its okay to fight for your marriage. Mariah definitely impressed me by sharing her story and Dr. Jackie was definitely appreciative that Mariah opened up and shared her story.
If it wasn’t for Dr. Damon, this trip would have been a disaster. Heavenly likes to push buttons and with these ladies, it always turns into conflict. Now that Dr. Simone and Cecil are divorcing, who will plan their next couples treat? Please don’t let it be Dr. Heavenly, she is too shady for me.
