I need to just acknowledge that this is the week of being behind on things I should already know about. First Randy Travis’ arrest and now Sheree’s “music.”
I’d like to bring your attention to a “dance single” by Ms. Sheree Whitfield of The Real (Broke) Housewives of Atlanta.
In Andy Cohen’s book Most Talkative, which I may or may not have read in 2 sittings, he reveals (now it can be told!) that the Atlanta franchise of the show is the ratings title-holder. Seriously, more people watch Atlanta than any of the other real housewives, which is awesome and weird.
But Seasons 1 and 2 were real gems, weren’t they? I’m not sure there’s a more recognizable Housewife line than Sheree’s infamous “Who gon’ check me, boo?” during her showdown with the party planner. When he failed to deliver the level of service this dee-va was expecting for her divorce party (!), Sheree got salty with him. Sassy party planner advised her that she should watch out before she “gets checked.” Oh, you guyyys, Sheree did NOT like that. Take a look. (Sorry for the crummy quality.)
And since I can’t resist a gif, here it is again:
Well, Sheree is an expert gold digger and she doesn’t let the opportunity for a check get by her. So she did what any of us would do to make a little cash: turned her line into a “song.”
This is real. You can buy it on iTunes. We live in this world.
If it weren’t for T.Kyle Mac and his fantastic website, I would never have known. Sigh. I need to step it up.
