ATL 'Housewife'

Accused of Stiffing

Private Eye

11/13/2010 5:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Sheree Whitfield is accused of screwing over the one person you probably don't wanna mess with -- her private detective -- and now the dude is out for revenge.

Sheree hired a private investigator named Dwayne Alexander back in 2005 to dig up dirt on her then-husband, ex-NFL star Bob Whitfield -- but according to a court order obtained by TMZ ... she still owes him $28,858.93 for snooping services and interest.

Now, Alexander's gone way over her head to get the money, firing off a letter to Bravo -- the network behind "Housewives" -- claiming he plans to garnish Sheree's wages from the show to settle the debt once and for all.

Sheree's lawyer claims Alexander's judgment is "void" -- telling us, dude "has no idea what he’s doing in a court of law and what he’s trying to do is improper."

I think the PI is wayyyy out of his league. Her attorney is correct. He's out of order and making a real fool of himself hoping if he exposes her at work, she will just send the check. A good game of smoking her out but really going to net him zip.

She's so low class.
The whole cast of Atlanta is ridiculous. They see the way the women in New York and Los Angeles live, with real photo shoots and real charity events and real work, and they don't have that. So what do they do? They "create" it themselves, like little girls that play dress-up. They "create" photo shoots and "create" events to go to so they can play like they are big important wealthy people. It's sad to watch. They created a photo shoot for some picture NeNe was having made and they posed and acted like they were billionaires and in-demand - getting their pictures taken. Sheree tried to have a clothing line that failed miserably, and had a fashion show to debut it, with no clothes at the event. But they got to walk around drinking champagne!
So ridiculous, like they were the Rockefellers.
It's embarrassing to watch them try to pretend like they are somebody.

I absolutely love Atlanta, (not the show) and I really wish they would have gotten REAL Real Housewives and shown the US how nice, southern ladies handle their families, homes, and careers. These fake@$$ skank ho's ARE NOT representing ANYTHING about Atlanta or the south, in fact, they are grossly insulting to the real woman who call the south their home. Not a single one welcomes guests with sweet tea or a nice cobbler, or maybe a slice of pecan pie. Nothing but drunken, fake bitches who don't know how handle themselves. You won't find any Southern charm on RHoA, ugh!

The only one I like on the show is Kandi, who is not a housewife and that model chick. The rest are personalities created to make the show huge and Sheree is such a .... I don't even have a word for it. So is so full of herself.

What's new!!!??? Never seen so MUCH "Drama," coming from so many "classLess, unprofessional, crass, brass women," in one show. Sad that most are simply "wannabes" --especially the attorney. Please. Someone teach her to speak correctly and NOT split verbs and allow them to be in agreement with her subjects! Exclusion of the recent model, however.

What he just did is illegal. You are not to contact anybody other than the person who owes you the debt. Only have he has a judgment for garnishment should her employer be contacted, and it would not have been by him.
She can now sue him for 3rd party disclousure. He should have read up on the FDPCA.
