The Real Housewives of Atlanta is losing an original cast member.
Sheree Whitfield tells Wet Paint she's exiting the series after four difficult seasons as a Bravo star. And, as you can tell by her statement below, she's doing it with her ego fully intact:
"After four solid seasons of helping Bravo build the show into its most successful Housewives franchise, I have decided to leave. The direction the show is going in is no longer a fit for my lifestyle. I'm tired of the fighting and the cattiness.
"I want to be part of something that empowers and inspires women to not only be healthy, but to treat themselves with respect. I wish the rest of the women the best of luck."
During the recently-wrapped fourth season, Whitfield battled with her ex for child support, while she has memorably clashed over the years with castmates NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak.
