Sadly the the aspiring actress’ photo wasn’t listed in an article giving her accolades for being a stellar thespian, she was actually mistaken for one of the contestants of Rupaul’s Drag Race.
I couldn’t make this stuff up…
Sahara Davenport aka Antoine Ashley, sadly passed away of heart failure at the age of 27. In announcing the death, TV Guide erroneously labeled a photo of Sheree as that of the deceased drag queen.
Sheree immediately contacted the periodical via twitter to notify them of the error and she also lent her condolences to Davenport’s family.
TV Guide corrected the error and posted the following response:
[Editor's Note: A previous version of this story included a photo that was mislabeled as Sahara Davenport. TVGuide.com regrets the error.]
Well the good news is… at least the mistake gets Sheree’s name back in the news. And it’s just in time for her small role in the newest ‘Scary Movie’ saga.
The Atlanta ‘housewife’ made famous for her “who gon’ check me boo?” phrase is set to appear in the upcoming comedy, Scary Movie 5.
A production photo was recently released which features Sheree alongside “Big Ang” of Mob Wives.
Whitfield is said to have a small role in the film and the shot was reportedly taken before “their blowout fight scene.”
Scary Movie 5 is set to hit theaters April 19, 2013 and stars Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Terry Crews, Molly Shannon, and Ashley Tisdale.
