Sheree Whitfield from The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Martell Holt from Love and Marriage: Huntsville might be a new couple, but their relationship has been ruffling the feathers of Whitfield’s co-stars and social media users.

People have been bashing the couple, saying it’s a publicity stunt. Others are saying Sheree can do better, including her co-stars Kandi Burruss and Kenya Moore. Whitfield is clapping back at the criticism and says the speculation is similar to what Burruss experienced when she first began dating her now-husband, Todd Tucker.

As reported by Urban Belle Mag, during a recent interview with Us Weekly at 2022’s BravoCon, Moore was asked about her thoughts on Holt. The former Miss USA answered: “I want Sheree to be happy. I want her to pick better. I think she’s a good pick, but I don’t think she’s a good picker.”

While Burruss didn’t speak on her actual thoughts as she had in the past regarding her feelings about the relationship being a storyline and publicity stunt, Burruss did warn that Holt is at the center of drama with her co-stars.

Whifield shades Todd Tucker

When Whitfield spoke with Us Weekly, she had a lot to say, namely about Burruss’ comments. “People wasn’t a fan of Todd when he came around either,” she said about Burruss’ husband, as many believed he was using Burruss for a come up.

In regards to Moore, Whitfield added:

“And it’s so funny that you say Kenya because every time she would text me or I would talk to her she’s asking about him. So then to get to where she is now, you know, some things that happened is kind of crazy to me. But hopefully, everything can be worked out.”
