Sheree Whitfield Talks Mismanaging Finances on BET’s ‘Don’t Sleep’


, host of BET’s Don’t Sleep probes the question “Whose fault is it?” when it comes to financial mismanagement of athletes.

To help navigate the issue, on Wednesday (Dec. 12) night’s episode, Holmes enlisted a panel, all of whom have been experienced the perils of overspending; former NBA player John Salley, Evelyn Lozada’s ex-fiance and former NBA player Antoine Walker and former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield.

When asked if she was the cause of former NFL player Bob Whitfield’s overspending, Sheree responded, “I took over care of the house and Bob handled the finances. I trusted my husband.”

In an interesting turn of events, after Sheree and Bob split, Sheree turned the divorce into a very lucrative TV career. With rumors swirling about another RHOA cast member Kenya Moore’s alleged fiscal woes, the issue of personal finance is an important one for us to discuss, not only in regard to professional athletes, but for everyone.

Press play to listen to Sheree’s response to TJ Holmes about whether or not she left once she discovered Bob was broke.
