A positive memo former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Shereé Whitfield posted on Instagram Sunday, July 29 has struck the wrong chord with fans.
“Negative people need drama like oxygen. Stay positive! It’ll take their breath away,” the inspirational message reposted from motivational speaker Tony Gaskins read.
“#postivevibes #postivevibesonly #sheree #shereewhitfield #staypositive #love #light #inspiration #inspirationalquotes #motivation #motivationalquotes,” Whitfield added in a comment.
Yet while the memo should have resulted in overwhelmingly positive feedback, none of those hashtags seemed to have resonated with some of the commenters on Whitfield’s post.
Folks began imploring the She By Shereé creator to heed that advice herself and calling her out for her hand in spreading negativity.
“Make sure you take heed to your own post chile!”
“What you’re saying is true, but you start a lot of drama or used to. So please listen to your own words.”
“@kweenie1736 I was just going to ask if she’s suffocating.”
“Funny you just described yourself.”
“Says the negative person 🤦🏽♀️.”
“@shereewhitfield like how you were repeating everything the girls were saying last season hmmmm 🤔.”
Still, not all fans were bashing the post. Some seemed to have spread love, light and motivation in their responses.
“Truly inspirational with all you have gone through and done for your kids like me , xx.”
“So true pretty peach of ATL Sheree…”
“Love ya sister! Just said this to my 16-year-old daughter.”
Although Whitfield confirmed last week that she’s not returning to RHOA for season 11, during her time on the hit Bravo series, she was known as the bone collector. When issues would arise between the women in the cast, Whitfield would be the first to bring it up in group gatherings, as was the case with Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams’ drama. And she wasn’t shy about embracing her title.
“I love it! Ha! I embrace it,” she told Bravo. “These women have no problem talking about each other behind their backs, so they shouldn’t have a problem saying it to their face. I’m often caught in the middle of all of these women, so for me it’s easier to have everything out in the open.
