There's plenty of controversy surrounding Sheree Whitfield's new man, Tyrone Gilliams (who is currently behind bars), and The Real Housewives of Atlanta
is all over it. Just ask NeNe Leakes, who not only has a past with Gilliams but who also called him a "con artist" earlier this season.
When asked about the status of Whitfield's relationship during Leakes' appearance on LIVE with Kelly and Ryan this week, she tried not say anything that would stir more drama and instead said that Whitfield and Gilliams are meant for each other.
"You know what, I think him and Sheree are still going strong," Leakes told Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest. "I'm so happy for her dating a prisoner. I mean, I think that's what I should be saying, because as soon as I say something about it, it's like, 'You're talking about my boyfriend!' No, I think he's the perfect man for her. I do."
Prior to Whitfield's relationship with Gilliams, his name already came up back in season four during a blow up between Leakes and Sheree. It was also revealed earlier this season that Leakes had met Gilliams before Whitfield did. Leakes has since confirmed that he tried to pursue her while she was going through divorce with her husband Gregg.
What are your thoughts on Gilliams? Do you think Whitfield and her new man will make it?
