'Housewives' star Sheree Whitfield's foreclosed home sold for $1.1 mil

The Real Housewives of Atlanta viewers apparently won't be seeing any more footage of Sheree Whitfield's mansion on the show's second season.
Whitfield's home -- which sits on 1.8 acres of property in Sandy Springs, GA -- was sold for $1.1 million in a foreclosure sale last month, the Atlanta Journal-Constituionreported Tuesday.
"That's a great deal," Whitfield told the Journal Constitution.
The 5,900 square-foot home -- which includes five bedrooms, six full baths and two half baths -- was purchased by Whitfield's ex-husband Bob Whitfield in 2000.
It was originally put up for sale in 2007 for $2.8 million, according to the Journal Constitution, which added there were no takers due to the down economy.
In February, the house was taken over in foreclosure by Aurora Loan Services and was subsequently placed on the market last month for $959,000. Since multiple offers were received, the Journal Constitution reported it sold above the asking price.
"It did quite well," real estate agent Costa Panos told the Journal Constitution.
Whitfield declined comment when asked by the Journal Constitution about her current living situation -- only stating that she has "downsized."
It is still unknown how Whitfield's living situation will be portrayed in The Real Housewives of Atlanta's second season, which filmed in April and May and is expected to premiere later this summer.
