As Showtime series George & Tammy comes to its conclusion this month, let’s take a look at what happened to George Richey and his second wife, Sheila Richey.

The musical production George & Tammy, which debuted on December 4, 2022, examines the passionately inventive musical and romantic relationship between George Jones and Tammy Wynette. George & Tammy, a musical about the couple behind such successes as Stand By Your Man and D-I-V-O-R-C-E, is based on their daughter’s memoir.

We find out more about Wynette’s prior relationships while watching the Showtime series, which centres on marital conflict. Especially noteworthy was her union with George Richey following her divorce from Michael Tomlin, her fourth spouse.

Where Is Sheila Richey Now?

After Tammy Wynette’s tragic passing in 1998, George Richey, a songwriter in his own right, eventually got married again. So, who was Richey’s last wife, Sheila Slaughter? And where is she now?

George Richey’s fourth and final wife was Sheila Richey (née Slaughter). George Richey and the couple were wed from 2001 till his passing on July 31, 2010. After a protracted struggle with chronic obstructive lung disease, Richey passed away at the age of 74.

Sheila was a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader before to getting married. She apparently cheered for the Cowboys in 1987 and 1988 for two seasons.

Sheila, who is from Madisonville, Texas, has always wanted to be a cheerleader for the Dallas Cowboys. She did, however, also have other aspirations for a future in showbiz. Sheila wanted to be in charge of the show’s backstage operations even though she studied acting and performing at the University of North Texas in Denton and at KD Studios in Dallas.

The Oklahoman published an article in 1994 on Sheila Slaughter Richey’s inspiration for Backstage With Tanya Tucker. The Nashville Network’s programme included her as host and executive producer. Although Sheila Slaughter was immersing herself in Nashville’s music scene as a result of the Tanya Tucker interview, it is unclear how she met George Richey, her future husband.
