'Real Housewives' Star

My Lawyers Sued Me for

$100k ... AND I LOST!!!

EXCLUSIVE

1228_sheree_whitfield_article_getty"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Sheree Whitfield is learning the hard way ... DON'T MESS WITH YOUR LAWYERS ... because they will sue you for A LOT of money, and they will win.

The law firm Weinstock & Scavo sued Sheree back in 2010 ... claiming the "Real Housewife" racked up $165k in legal bills while they repped her in her divorce from former NFL star Bob Whitfield.

According to docs, Sheree coughed up about $69k to W&S for services rendered, but never paid the remaining $96k ... because she claimed the firm was overcharging her.

But a judge recently sided with W & S ... ordering the reality star to pay the outstanding balance, plus interest ... for a total of $119, 674.

That extra $75k is gonna come in handy.

That's the same reason why Pheadra stopped representing her. Remember the beginning of last season when Pheadra was trying to get paid? She dropped her because she didn't won't to ruin their friendship. What about that mansion she's building? Lol... Nene was right!

So how's that dream house coming along Sheree? Hmmm, yeah, I didn't think so. It's called living within your means. As the saying goes..."A fool and her money are soon parted."

Perfect example of what happens when you live above your means and pretend to have more money than you really do.

I used to work for that law firm. It doesn't surprise me that she thinks they overcharged her. Having previously worked there, I wouldn't ever retain that firm for any legal work.

I miss her on the show. It's disgusting that she would have to pay $165K to get a divorce. It seems like the law firm took advantage of her financially. The law firms and judges are making big money off these people who are going through hard times in their life.
