DMX (real name Earl Simmons) ain’t the only one pissy these days with one of OWN’s popular shows, Iyanla: Fix My Life. Last weekend, Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Sheree Whitfield and her ex-hubby, Bob Whitfield, took their problems to TV, for expert advice for Iyanla Vanzant.
And while we were conflicted on whether or not the show helped them co-parent, Sheree is none too pleased about her experience. Reportedly, the ex reality star has released a statement, telling us exactly why she felt the session was ‘one sided’:
I thought it was an opportunity to inspire single parents in our situation. However, once shooting began I felt misled because the line of questioning was centered more on accusations of my shortcomings as a wife versus how we can begin to resolve our issues…Although I was caught off guard by what felt like a very one-sided and judgmental approach to therapy, what I did take away from this experience is that I must continue to take responsibility for doing the work to be a better person. I am completely committed to making sure that I am a positive and healthy mother for my children and being a role model for the young women that I mentor.
Sheree has yet to comment about her experience on twitter, nor has Iyanla defended or responded. But what are YOUR thoughts? Behind the scenes, do you believe that Sheree may’ve been mislead by producers? Or was she unpleased with her portrayal on the show?
