Sheree Whitfield's Doctor Date Is A FRAUD!

 

As expected, the drama of the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" is starting up already.  And we've only seen two episodes.  The "doctor" Sheree Whitfield went out on a date with on last night's episode is a fake doctor.  And he's been fired from jobs and outed as a fraud as far back as 2005.

 

The drama when you read on...

So on last night's episode of "Real Housewives of Atlanta", Sheree's friends set her up on a date with a "psychiatrist" (she said psychiatrist, not psychologist, on the show) named Dr. Tiy-E.  Dude showed up to meet Sheree at some jook joint style place with random bald spots in his head and some "grocery store flowers" (Sheree's words, not ours).  All this after Sheree bragged to her "stylist" Lawrence about this blind date of hers being a fabulous psychiatrist.

Dr. Tiy-E revealed he's a divorced man.  But what he conveniently forgot to reveal is that he's a fraud.  And has been outed as such.  We've learned that this is the same dude who used to be the guest doctor on "The Ricki Lake Show" and a contestant on "The Real Gilligan's Island" as the professor.  He was outed as a fraud in an Atlanta Journal Constitution article back in 2005.

Tiy-E Muhammad claimed to be a psychiatrist and claimed to have a doctoral degree.  Clark Atlanta University fired him from his real-life professor gig after his resume didn't check out and the school he claimed to earn a degree from claimed otherwise.  He ended up removing certain claims from his own website about who he is because reporters started to out him.  Here's the AJC article in full.  And after all this, this dude is still claiming to be a psychiatrist:

 

The former Clark Atlanta University associate professor turned castaway on TBS' "The Real Gilligan's Island" has called himself a psychologist on his Web site and book jacket covers, yet he is not licensed to practice psychology in Georgia or anywhere else.

Kara Sinkule, a spokeswoman for the Georgia secretary of state's office, said Muhammad, known as "The Love Doctor" on a local radio station, could face misdemeanor criminal charges.

Claiming you are a psychologist without a license is illegal, she said.

Muhammad, 35, says he's a doctor, but he didn't earn a Ph.D. in psychology at the school from which he has said he graduated, school records show. In fact, he attended Southern Illinois University for just one semester as an unspecified graduate student, said SIU spokesman Tom Woolf.

Muhammad said he left Clark Atlanta, where he was an associate professor in the psychology department for four years, because he wasn't paid enough and he "no longer felt that spark" from teaching. School officials said he left after they discovered his credentials were bogus.

A nonprofit that wasn't

Muhammad said that in 1999 he founded a nonprofit organization called "Man II Man Inc.," which his Web site states is "dedicated to uplifting, motivating and educating inner city youth." Actually, the organization is a for-profit company, said Cara Hodgson of the secretary of state's office.

Muhammad said he had not "filed the paperwork" to make the corporation nonprofit. "I'm still forming the board of directors," he said. On Tuesday, the Web site was changed to describe the organization as "community-based," rather than nonprofit.

Muhammad has said he was a psychologist in Illinois, where he was originally from, but a search on the state's Financial and Professional Regulation Department Web site and a check with the department's spokesperson revealed no evidence to support that claim.

On Saturday, a nattily dressed Muhammad was signing two of his self-published books, "The Secrets Men Keep," and "My Mind, My Body, My Spirit," at a Barnes & Noble in East Point and dishing dirt on his stint on "The Real Gilligan's Island."

Advice about love

The "Survivor"-style show, which airs Wednesdays on TBS, pits two teams of castaways against each other for a top prize of $250,000. Muhammad fills one of the two "professor" roles. The heavily promoted show debuted June 8 and will run through June 29. It was taped in 2004 and has an average weekly viewership of 1.7 million people, studio officials said.

Wearing crisp white pants, an embroidered denim blue shirt and black leather Gucci sandals, Muhammad signed two of his books on relationships — published under his own Man II Man Inc. imprint — and autographed black-and-white headshots of himself labeled "Dr. Tiy-E Psychologist/Author" in large letters.

"If you go to bed at night not feeling comfortable with who you are, I feel sorry for you," he told the group of about 20 women, flashing a dimpled smile. "Everyone should love themselves."

In an interview with a reporter Saturday, Muhammad said he decided to leave Clark Atlanta in the summer of 2004 to pursue a career in modeling and acting.

"The job became a chore. It was a stale routine. It wasn't a challenge anymore," he said.

Asked Monday if he left the university because officials there questioned his credentials, he hesitated, then said, "I don't have a problem with that."

When pressed about the discrepancies, he said, "That is not anybody's business."

'Ricki Lake' regular

Charismatic and handsome, Muhammad first attracted national attention as a regular on the syndicated "Ricki Lake Show" as a "resident relationship expert" in 2002. He made numerous appearances on the talk show over the next two years while teaching at Clark Atlanta. School administrators would not comment on how Muhammad got his job with a faked résumé or why he was allowed to teach for so long.

Both Jet and Ebony magazines quoted Muhammad as a psychologist and relationship expert in articles dating back to 2001. In 2003, Ebony named him one of 26 "Best Bachelors of the Year." Ebony officials declined to comment this week, saying they had not had an opportunity to check into the matter.

Turner Broadcasting officials released a brief statement: "Tiy-E Muhammad met the professor criteria for the production company to cast him as a contestant on 'The Real Gilligan's Island.' They felt he was a good reality character."

Laura Mandel, a spokeswoman for Telepictures Productions, the show's producer, said, "We do not discuss the casting process."

Deception is unethical

Marietta psychologist Mark Roland, a board member of the Georgia Psychological Association's independent practice division, called Muhammad's use of the term psychologist "the worst kind of betrayal of the public's trust."

"This is the first time I've heard of someone taking it to this level," Roland said. "It raises legal and ethical issues."

Muhammad, who received a master's degree in guidance and counseling from Eastern Illinois University, said Monday he was unaware that claiming to be a psychologist without a license was illegal.

"I checked it out when I moved here. It's not against the law," he said.

But when a reporter read Muhammad the Georgia Law Code that relates to psychologists (Sec. 43-39-7), he said, "I'm a life coach, I say I'm a life coach. It makes things simpler."

On Tuesday, he changed his Web site, dropping the description of himself as a psychologist. He later acknowledged he had not graduated from Southern Illinois but said he had a doctorate from an unaccredited online university. He did not provide immediate documentation.

His own radio show

In the last five years, Muhammad has spoken on dozens of college campuses around the country, from Georgia Tech to Notre Dame. He said he gets 50 to 75 e-mails a day through his Web site, www.onelovepoet.com, asking for relationship advice.

He's turned "Secrets Men Keep" into a play that is scheduled for Sept. 6-11 at the Bois-feuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center, backed by local theater promoter Preston Elliott. Muhammad ran his own casting call in May and will play the lead. A promotional flier says the play is a "Man II Man Development" production.

Muhammad co-hosts with Ramona Debreaux on HOT 107.9 a Wednesday morning radio show on relationships.

General Manager Wayne Brown said the station does not refer to Muhammad as a psychologist or Ph.D. They call him "The Love Doctor."

"I don't think you need to be a doctor to have a male opinion," Brown said.

Former Clark Atlanta University student Ivory Jones, who graduated with a minor in psychology in 2000, said students often questioned Muhammad's teaching methods.

"It seemed more like he wanted to come across as a ladies' man and not as a legit professor," Jones said. "He's really attractive and well-spoken. I guess that's why he was able to carry it off for so long."

Delusion is VERY real in the ATL.

After I watched "Real

After I watched "Real Housewives of ATL", I could not believe these women did not know someone can attain a Psychology doctor degree via online, OMG, come on, are they for real, or was this just for TV? And, I ask, why are these women & Bravo throwing Dr. Tiye under the bus, as we all can see, this man does have a couple of other degrees, a successful life coach, author, does semiars, and he been counseling for over a decaded. " Come on people " Think! What is the real reason someone is trying to destroy this Black man character, treating him as if he is a loser, and all we see his kindness towards Sheree' & her friends. Is it just editing , " Ratings ", or what is the real agenda???? Think People & stop being Program -- TV Programming!!!!

With all due respect.... no

With all due respect.... no one is trying to take what he has accomplished away. He should tell his REAL credentials and leave the FANTASY out because he is a very accomplished man in his own right. No one wants to be lied to about anything (educatoin or where u stay) especially when I let u into the real me, my home and meet my kids.

Beware ladies in Chicago esp.

Beware ladies in Chicago esp. There's a whole group of 30+ year old black men in the Chi with the sexy 'Nation of-' type names who run game on black women and the black community as a whole. Some are already married-but-separated and claiming to be single, some are making kids with the promise to take care of them and the woman as long as they keep their mouths shut while they do what they want. Alot of them are fleecing the community of money by setting up bogus nfp's. and setting up events for people to come out to then cancelling the event without refunding people's money. I work with a couple of them, I dated another...they're all over. This is not a comment directed at any certain faith; these clowns do what they do and use the faith as a backdrop to get people to trust them and think they're 'down'. You notice that 'Dr. Muhammed' didn't dare take his GAME to a white institution of higher learning. He fleeced his own...the HBCU's.

Damn, I love this shit, it’s

Damn, I love this shit, it’s entertaining as hell, but there are many well-educated and legitimate upper class Black women doing the damn thing. Of course they would never subject themselves to such nonsense nor should they. Don’t get it twisted these women are trying to provide a better life for themselves with what they have to work with or lack thereof. I can’t put anyone down because they have families to support. I’m just sad for the children…what about NeNe, Sheree and Lisa do they have education beyond high school? You can’t kick their drive though. Look at the socioeconomic situation in which they came from. Peace,

A PSYCHIATRIST is a medical

A PSYCHIATRIST is a medical doctor who went to medical school, did a residency, and can prescribe medication. a PSYCHOLOGIST has some type of graduate degree but is not a medical doctor and cannot prescribe medications. This fool sounds like he is neither!
allnatural's picture

Thank you I was about to type

Thank you I was about to type the same thing. Psychiatrist spend the last year or last couple years of residency studying mental health usually on a behavioral branch of the hospital a.k.a a mental ward. Psychologist are completely different and in fact most psychologist have a research based background meaning they don't have client's whom they see on a daily basis. For the psychologists who are not research based they usually have a Psy.D degree instead of a Ph.D. NOT TO MENTION ACCORDING TO HOW THEY MARKET THEMSELVES PSYCHIATRIST USUALLY MAKE A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT MORE THAN PSYCHOLOGISTS. Check the record.

I just said the same thing to my aunt while we were watching. Everybody is trying to pretend like they all got it like that. Acting like all their bank accounts got seven figures sitting in it. Even the ones that appear to have money are living beyond their means. About to file for bankruptcy but driving around in a leased Bentley. Everybody is everybody's "friend" but they all plant a knife in the others back as soon as they turn around. Just a city full of movers and fakers.

First of all, I have to say

First of all, I have to say that I love reading the comments, more than the post. You all argue back and forth and say the most hilarious shit ever LMAO ... Second, just for clarification; Psychiatrist hold a PhD and an MD and can write Rx, Psychologist hold a PhD, and do not write Rx, but in some states one can get a secondary PhD in pharmacology and then can in fact write Rx.

Here are my comments regarding last nights RHOA: 1) Phaedra's husband knowing Lawrence would make me nervous if I was his wife. Do you think he is on the DL? 2) Sheree (sp?) can get much better, I'm thinking the date was totally fake... 3) I'm going to still watch RHOA; love the drama!
