Whitfield also experienced changes in her friendships with her co-stars, most notably Nene Leakes after they fell out over a business deal gone wrong. Still, she remained a favorite on the show and fans rooted for Whitfield when she began living independently of Bob’s wealth and started her own clothing company, She By Sheree.
