Sheree Whitfield Says Upcoming Novel Is a “Reality Show in Print”
Now that Sheree Whitfield decided to rejoin the Real Housewives of Atlanta for Season 8, our girl just can’t get enough of the drama.
Sheree is so ingrained in the reality TV world, in fact, she calls her unnamed upcoming novel a “reality show in print.”
The 46-year-old explains to Bravo, “Reality television seems to be everyone's guilty pleasure; both men and women. There is an addictive connection the audience has with the cast members of these shows. I wanted to take those very things — characteristics/issues/feelings/emotions/trials and tribulations that play out before viewers' very eyes — and form characters and situations around them.”

Adds the mom of three, “Basically what I have done is created a reality show in print.”
When pressed for specifics about the plot of the book, which is slated for a February 2017 release, Sheree hinted it’s definitely RHoA-inspired.
“It's thick with realistic situations, and at the same time, dripping with drama,” she says.
“And of course the setting is in Atlanta — Hotlanta, per the title — so even though some of the characters like to wear designer sunglasses, the readers won't need them, as there is plenty of shade being thrown in the pages of this book.”

As for what inspired Sheree to become an author?
The reality TV vet reveals, “I've wanted to pursue a career in writing for quite some time, but not necessarily a novel. I saw myself doing a self-help book of some sort in regards to health and fitness. But once I put pen to paper, the pen had a life of its own and went in its own direction. And I followed.”
You do you, girl. We can’t wait to read the book!
