    Sheree Whitfield has bid adieu to “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” the show that’s spent the last four years chronicling her life.

    It should come as no surprise that Whitfield describes the show as a “whole lot of bickering and fighting.”

    In an interview since leaving “RHOA,” Whitfied spoke with ESSENCE.com about why she left the show and more:

    Is This The Newest “RHOA” Housewife?

    The Final Showdown Between “The Talls” & “The Smalls” On “Real Housewives Of Atlanta Reunion Pt 3″ [RECAP]

    On why she left RHOA
    “I had been thinking about it for a while. We don’t see the show until it airs, or a couple days before it airs. Even when we were taping, there were a few things I wasn’t happy with as far as how I was portrayed. I was going through some really tough things in my life and watching back and seeing how it affected not only my life, but also my kids’ lives, I made a decision that I didn’t want to be selfish. My kids come first.”

    On accusations that she was fired
    “It was an amicable split. I was ready to move and I don’t need to explain myself to anybody. I am super happy and I’m moving in a different direction. This is what I know. I’m not about just being on a show bickering and fighting with women. There are big parts of my life that weren’t shown that I’m ready for everybody to see.”

    On flack about portraying negative stereotypes
    “It’s crazy, the negative stereotype that Black women get about this when it’s not a racial issue; it’s a gender issue. We’re very emotional beings — women period, not just Black women or White women or Italian women or Asian women. We’re all the same way. But unfortunately, [in] the Black community there’s always a microscope on what we do and that’s not fair because you have other shows like Jersey Shore — they’re getting drunk and fist fighting. Then you have Mob Wives and Housewives of New Jersey — they’re flipping tables. Everybody handles things differently. When you have women of other races doing it, they’re not boycotting them. I don’t think it’s fair the stereotype that they put on African-American women, or females period.”

    On what she’s doing next
    “I’ve been spending more time with my kids and my family and planning my next move. I’ve got a couple projects that I’m working on that I’m really excited about. I’ve partnered with a company called Zuma to create a 5 million-pound fitness challenge. We’re trying to help a generation get healthy. I’m really excited about it because this is my realm and what I love.”
