These days, Sherée Whitfield says she's spending time with her family. She's working on a few projects, too, including a fitness challenge, and she's planning her next move.

It's been a month, after all, since she announced her decision to leave The Real Housewives of Atlanta, a move she calls "an amicable split."

"I was ready to move, and I don't need to explain myself to anybody," she tells Essence.com, shooting down rumors she was fired from the Bravo reality show. "I am super happy, and I'm moving in a different direction."

She adds: "I'm not about just being on a show bickering and fighting with women."





With season four wrapped, she summarizes her portrayal on the series as "being put in situations with people you normally wouldn't be around." She says there are two people on the show she considers friends, and although she isn't naming names, Whitfield says she recently met up with Housewife Kandi Burruss.

Still, "I wish all the girls the best," she says. "The ones that I like and the ones that I don't like. I wish everybody the best."

And even though she won't be burning up the small screen with the Atlanta housewives anymore, her life isn't drama-free yet. After a season that followed her storied battle with ex-husband Bob Whitfield, a former Atlanta Falcons player whom she divorced in 2007, she says they have yet to work out their child-support issues.

"One day, I hope Bob and I can sit down and become good friends," she says, "and even better parents to our kids."
