*A month after announcing her “amicable split” from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Sherée Whitfield says she’s spending these days working on a few projects, including a fitness challenge, and also planning her next move.

“I was ready to move, and I don’t need to explain myself to anybody,” she tells Essence magazine, shooting down rumors she was fired from the Bravo reality show. “I am super happy, and I’m moving in a different direction.”

She adds: “I’m not about just being on a show bickering and fighting with women.”

With season four in the rear view mirror, she sums up her “RHOA” experience as “being put in situations with people you normally wouldn’t be around.” She says there are two people on the show she considers friends, and although she isn’t naming names, Whitfield says she recently met up with cast member Kandi Burruss.

Still, “I wish all the girls the best,” she says. “The ones that I like and the ones that I don’t like. I wish everybody the best.”

After a season that followed her battle with ex-husband Bob Whitfield, a former Atlanta Falcons player whom she divorced in 2007, she says they have yet to work out their child-support issues.

“One day, I hope Bob and I can sit down and become good friends,” she says, “and even better parents to our kids.”
