How can we forget socialite Shereé Whitfield (former wife of NFL player Bob Whitfield) who early in the Premiere Season planned a birthday blowout at her estate to celebrate her new life, after her divorce.

Sherree had no problem  cracking the whip on her staff to make sure no detail was missed - from the Louis Vuitton cake to the exclusive guest list.  And yes, the tension between Sheree and the bigger than life NeNe.
