Sheree Whitfield, a former cast member of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," does not seem happy with her recent appearance on "Iyanla: Fix My Life" where she was scolded by her ex-husband and the show's host and spiritual counselor Iyanla Vanzant.

During the episode of the show that premiered Saturday, Vanzant questioned Whitfield's decision to build her extravagant home, "Chateau Sheree," which was first introduced on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." While the house has yet to be completed and Whitfield has made headlines for issues with her finances, she insisted that her upgraded residence was being built with her children in mind.

However, Vanzant did not seem to believe Whitfield's claims.

"That ain't about your kids," Vanzant told Whitfield on the show. "That's about you."

While the spiritual counselor told Whitfield that she needed to admit her anger about her life's circumstances, Whitfield complained about feeling attacked.

"I felt like I was being attacked," Whitfield told Vanzant on the show. "It was very hurtful ... I didn't feel like questions about whether or not my finances were up to par had anything to do with me as a parent or being a good person."

However, Whitfield's ex-husband and former NFL player Bob Whitfield did question his ex-wife about her character concerning their children. Bob accused Sheree of bashing him as a father and husband to further her stint on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" for the four seasons in which she participated on the program.

"Your whole plot was to point a finger at me, as to catapult yourself into some glory. To take advantage of the stereotypes of the male athlete having kids everywhere, to the bad husband that abandons his family, doesn't take care of them, to the distraught woman that can't meet her bills," Bob told his ex-wife on the show.

"Basically, you took a reality show television show to become your reality so that even when we were going through divorce, that was supposed to be done and finished, you needed something more just for your television cameras," he added.

While the two battled on screen about parenting their children and former marital issues, Sheree seemed unhappy with her portrayal on the show. The former reality television star took to Twitter to re-post a message from a viewer.

"Last week DMX was a deadbeat Dad. This week it's ok to be a absentee if you don't like the mother," Whitfield re-tweeted. "Ratings trump Logic #IylanlaFixMyLife."
