A week or so ago we watched after 14 years in the making, the She by Sheree fashion show take its rightful place in the RHOA season finale.
The show was amazing and it was great to see her do what she said she would do, after so many years.
Unfortunately the amazing moment turned quickly to skepticism when people started to take a closer look at some of the pieces.
According to Page Six social media users slammed the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, 52, for selling a $130 gray two-piece athleisure set that looks nearly identical to versions sold by Shein and Amazon at lower price points.
“Nah you wrong for these Shein joggers and charging NIKE prices,” one person tweeted.
“Ummm when you can buy it from Amazon without the She by Sheree logo for a third of the price, then I have a problem. #RHOA,” added another.
One fan even lambasted Whitfield for providing such a product after taking more than a decade to work on it.
Now Sheree is speaking out in an interview explaining that she did not design every single piece in the line and it is very likely that fast fashion brands like SHEIN use the same vendors she does.

People aren’t here for her explanation though, one user saying – So why did she tag hundreds of dollars on pieces that she didn’t design???? She was clearly trying to get away with it b/c if they have been sold from other brands wouldn’t that mean lower prices to match other competitors like SHEIN? It just doesn’t make sense. All LIES
Another saying: She didn’t give us a line 13 years in the making. She threw this together and it looks like it.
I wish she would just say she didn’t invest the money and time she should have opposed to trying to gaslight people.. There’s nothing she can say to justify that overpriced cheap and tacky crap..I really don’t want to hear about Sheree or her fictional clothing line ever again pic.twitter.com/BtJen4xIHj

At the end of the day, Sheree is still building a business so we are excited to see what she has in store once WE ALL get past this.
