Fans of Bravo hit The Real Housewives of Atlanta, have been wondering who Shereé Whitfield’s new boo is. Now, the housewife is dishing on her new man, Tyrone.
Whitfield recently told Wendy Williams that she hopes her boo, who is currently behind bars, is released soon. It also turns out that the two have a little history, “This is a guy I dated, back, maybe six years ago,” she told Williams. “We had a really good connection back then, we lost contact —meaning he went to jail. I did not know. He contacted me a couple years ago and we’ve been talking.”
ESSENCE Now interviewed the reality star, where she gave us a few more deets on her new boo and what it’s like to date a man in prison.

He's family oriented, which is huge with me. He's a great communicator. He's very supportive. I mean, I can go on and on. He is So hopefully in a few months we'll see maybe some of that play out on the show. Yes, you will. Awesome. You will definitely see that play out on the show. [BLANK_AUDIO]
