The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 14 is here, and this time Shari Richards’ sister Sanya Richards-Ross — the four-time Olympic medalist and track star — is also joining the team. So, this also means the important people around Sanya are bound to be featured on the show as well.
Thus, we bring you this Shari Richards Bio so you don’t have to search all over the internet when it’s time.
Meet Shari Richards, Sanya Richards-Ross Sister
Shari Richards isn’t only Sanya Richards-Ross’s sister. The two have bonds that go well beyond siblings. However, though Sanya has “a lot of cool titles” for Shari, she admits the “sister” definitely is her favorite one.
Even during Sanya’s first pregnancy with Deucey, it was Shari who monitored her cycle, closely. She even would call Aaron Ross (Sanya’s husband) on the days she knew Sanya was ovulating.
Likewise, Sanya was there for her sister during Shari’s pregnancy as well. She was there with her when Shari gave birth. “I was in the room. It was such a beautiful miracle to witness. My sister’s strength and vulnerability were inspiring and I knew if she could do it, and my mother could do it, I was built for it,” the RHOA star recalled.
Also, Sanya shared that Shari was the reason she “lose sleep about Deucey not having a sibling.” Thus, the whole drama on Real Housewives of Atlanta. In addition to having some scuffles with other housewives, Shari was also contemplating if it was the right time to have another child with her husband.
Talking about Sanya, she made history by becoming the first female athlete to win gold in the women’s 4 x 400m relay at three consecutive Olympics as part of the USA’s team in Athens (2004), Beijing (2008), and London (2012) Summer Games.
In 2022, she was even appointed to the Board for the Oregon 2022 World Athletics Championships.

Shari Richards was 35 years of age when The Real Housewives of Atlanta premiered in 2022.
She is over a year younger than her sister Sanya who was born on Feb 26, 1985.
Shari Richards Husband
Shari Richards first met her husband Tyrell Gatewood during their freshman year at the University of Texas. The two always had a great friendship and decided to give a name to their relationship in 2009.
Fast forward to a few years of dating, on Tyrell’s 30th birthday, Shari surprised Tyrell with an early dinner celebration at Eddie V’s. However, Tyrell was one step ahead of Shari. After dinner, in front of all of Shari’s friends and family, Tyrell then got down on his knees and asked Shari to marry him.
The lovebirds then went on to tie the knot in February at The Vista on Seward Hill.
It was always Shari’s dream to have her wedding at The Vista. The location’s natural beauty doesn’t need a lot of decoration and it has separate rooms for dinner and dancing.
Shari and her husband then welcomed two kids named Slade and Shiloh.
Their oldest, Slade turned 5 on Feb 4, 2022, and the youngest Shiloh turned 3 on August 11, 2021.
Besides them, Shari also has two step kids — Tyriel and Armani.
Together, the family of six lived happily in Austin, Texas.
Talking about Tyrell, he is a University of Texas graduate who went on to work as a realtor at Fathom Realy. Also, he was working as the manager of Iccountable, the last we checked.
And not to mention, Tyrell’s an awesome dad.
Even Sanya (who was always judgemental about parenting) admitted that Tyrel’s an “amazing dad.” However, she confessed that she never understood “the depths of Tyrell’s love for his children.” And for this, she apologized to him.
