Sheree Whitfield Gets Testy over Tyrone Question on WWHL + Tyrone Denied Early Release
On season ten of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Sheree Whitfield has been very open about her relationship with Tyrone Gilliams.
Tyrone is currently serving a prison bid for what Sheree calls a “white-collar crime.”
She’s hopeful that Tyrone will be released some time this year.
He himself has proclaimed his innocence but NeNe describes him as a “con artist.”
And NeNe isn’t the only one with some not so nice words about Tyrone.
When Sheree appeared on “Watch What Happen Live” recently, a caller did not hold back.
In fact, they asked Sheree how Tyrone is going to take care of her financially when he’s released (a promise he made during one of their phone calls).
They also asked Sheree if Tyrone has money that he kept from “his embezzling days.”
This did not sit well with Sheree and she was a bit feisty in her response.
She sad the following:
He’s definitely okay. So if I’m not worried about it, you probably shouldn’t be either.
Miss Lawrence was on the show as well, and said:
And you know people that go to jail…that don’t mean that they like broke. You know Martha Stewart went to prison.
Sheree then added:

In related news, it appears Tyrone won’t be getting out of prison anytime soon.
Gilliams was sentenced in 2013 to a ten-year sentence for an elaborate Ponzi scheme that cost investors about $5 million. He was attempting to get his sentence shortened, according to federal documents procured by Radar Online, arguing that he wasn’t the “leader” in his scheme, the government “improperly withheld” evidence, and his counsel had been “ineffective.”
But a New York federal court judge recently rejected his arguments, saying he offered no new evidence.
He is set to be released November 14, 2022, more than four years away, according to Radar. He is at a prison in Yazoo City, Miss., which takes more than six hours to get to from Atlanta.
NeNe threw some shade after the news began to spread. This led to a Twitter beef with Kim Zolciak:
