At the season premiere of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Shereé revealed her long-distance romance with Tyrone to the other housewives
After Shereé Whitfield’s boyfriend Tyrone Gilliams threatened to sue The Real Housewives of Atlanta for using his name without permission, viewers wondered if they’d get any more “tea” against him this season. At the season 14 premiere, Shereé admitted her relationship with Tyrone, if only for a few minutes, and shared where the two are currently (or at least when they were filming this).
It was revealed last November that Shereé’s boyfriend Tyrone threatened to sue The Real Housewives of Atlanta for using his name in significant storylines without his permission. Tyrone, it seems, had no idea his name had been mentioned on the show over the years. Tyrone attempts to part ways with the brand after Shereé’s return from prison due to his recent release. Tyrone must not be caught shooting or hooking up with anyone on camera while in domestic custody, and his constant legal troubles have strained his relationship with Shereé.
ON THE SUBJECT OF MATCHING ITEMS
What’s the latest on Shereé and Tyrone’s relationship?
When news of Tyrone’s release from prison broke earlier this year, fans rejoiced. During her final season on ‘RHOA’, In Season 10, Shereé hinted at her long-distance relationship with Tyrone. Tyrone and Shereé had a long history of friendship, and he was once the source of the conflict between Shereé and NeNe Leakes. Tyrone’s name was mentioned in the show’s early seasons, although he never physically filmed a role.
Tyrone’s guest star prospects were thwarted after he was sentenced to 10 years in prison for wire fraud schemes in which he allegedly stole $5 million. Tyrone had been jailed since 2011 and served two years in prison before being sentenced. Tyrone was released from prison in early 2021 after serving 10 years and Sheree was over the moon to see him.
As the girls meet at a dance studio where Kenya Moore was previously seen rehearsing, they all give an update on their lives and share what’s going on at the time. When asked about her relationship with Tyrone, Shereé breaks the good news to the girls that he has returned but is currently in domestic custody in the Philippines. He’s been around for a while, and she explained that she owes it to herself to see where and how their relationship progresses and “when love conquers all.” She explains that he is on probation in the Philippines and cannot visit her in Atlanta. A clip of Shereé chatting with Tyrone on Facetime is also shown, revealing their long-distance relationship.
Upon learning of their plight, the girls immediately questioned them about their sexual relationship and how they were surviving the long distance. Shereé mentions that they fly to his place twice a month and describe their sex life as “fast”. Shereé also talks about abstinence and how she and Tyrone are using it to work on their decades-long estrangement. Even though the other housewives scoff at her decision, Shereé believes it’s crucial for her at this point because she wants to make sure the guy she’s seeing now is the same as he was before he was got into jail.
