*Things are looking up for former reality star, Sheree Whitfield, after battling it out in court over the custody of her daughter.
She demanded some serious child support from her ex-husband, Bob Whitfield, and was awarded $75,000 in back payments.
According to reports, Bob signed a fat deal worth $30 million with the Atlanta Falcons in 2000. Since then, he managed to miss 38 payments of a measly $2,142.
So now, Sheree and her lil ones (Kairo -13, Kaleigh-10) should be $75,000 richer, unless Bob doesn’t follow through as the court ordered.

Watch the fire works between Iyanla and DMX:
*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.”
*It looks like RHOA star Sheree Whitfield, has gone and messed with the wrong person … a private dick.
According to tmz.com, she hired Dwayne Alexander, a private investigator, in 2005 to spy on her then-husband, ex-NFL player Bob Whitfield. Unfortunately she never paid said detective completely off and still owes him a whopping $28,858.93.
Alexander is apparently tired of waiting for his money and has now gone to Bravo, the network that produces “Real Housewives of Atlanta” series with a court judgment to inform them that he plans to garnish her pay and get his money that way.
However, according to tmz, Whitfield’s lawyer claims the PI’s judgment is “void.” According to the attorney, Alexander “has no idea what he’s doing in a court of law and what he’s trying to do is improper.”
