“Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans were shocked this past season when Sheree Whitfield rejoined the cast and brought back her famous ex-husband, Bob Whitfield, who tried non-stop to get back together with her all season long. Considering their turbulent history together, it was understandable that some fans began to question whether Sheree was really interested in starting over with her ex-husband or if she was just using him to get back on “RHOA.” However, both Sheree and Bob recently spoke about their relationship and set the record straight on how things are going.
The last we saw of Sheree and Whitfield on “RHOA,” the former pair were enjoying each other’s company at Phaedra Parks’ holiday party. And Sheree even gave Bob a kiss after he groped her butt on camera. In her latest Bravo blog post, Sheree confirmed that she and Bob really are definitely back in each other’s lives and she explained that things have been going well between them since filming for the show stopped months ago.
“Bob and I are working on getting to know each other again. We both have grown a lot and are in a different space than we were when we were married. We are in the process of relearning each other. I can say that we are happy with how things are going and our children our happy. #LifeIsGood for #TheWhitfields,” Sheree wrote.
Bob also recently spoke about their second chance with each other and echoed Sheree’s sentiment and they’re taking things slowly now that they’re dating again.
“Here’s the thing, the previous relationship was so damaged,” Bob said in a recent interview. “Two adults, we wouldn’t dare to venture into a relationship, but we are exploring each other’s company, I will say.”
However, he also explained that he’s remaining cautious around Sheree because of their tumultuous history.
“Having been around the person, you can in your mind think about, ‘Hey, it used to be good when it was good, but when it was bad, it was hella bad,’” he said. “So when you get to the person, you might be like, ‘S***, I need to have my knife in my back pocket just in case.’”
Bob also revealed that he and Sheree rekindled their flame while celebrating their daughter’s birthday last July.
“It started because of the birthday party,” he said. “It was kind of a festive occasion and it was a bowling alley party. So now drinks are involved, jokes are involved, different type of mood. So then it’s like, ‘Let’s try breakfast…’ take it easy and just go little bit by little.”
Bob says that he’s not dating other women, but he has no plans on marrying Sheree any time soon either. For now, he’s letting Sheree take the lead as they work to build up their relationship again.
“We had our differences and our problems, but I never just gave up on her,” he said. “I feel like I’ve invested a lot. We’ve invested a lot in each other, so I’m not going to just scrap my investment to her. You kept the name for a reason.”
But that’s not all that the couple talked about. Read what they had to say about Bob’s alleged former mistress, after the cut.
