If you think losing your cool on national television is well, cool, just ask Lisa Wu Hartwell how it’s done. Though the levelheaded wife of NFL player Ed Hartwell hasn’t exploded on The Real Housewives of Atlanta yet, she surely will in due time. She’s done her best to stay away from the drama, but she assures viewers that she has her limits.
Straight from Lisa herself, news are buzzing with the information regarding the show’s upcoming reunion special. Even if it’s set to air on November 25 on Bravo, the mother of three has already confirmed that her co-star Kim Zolciak has pushed her buttons far too much.
Lisa Wu Hartwell has revealed that there will be “super drama” on the approaching episode. Kim has simply angered her, and Lisa couldn’t hold herself back any longer. She’s been keeping the fury in, and it will only take a bit more for Lisa to finally fly into a rage.
“I’ve been extremely diplomatic and there are horrible things I could have said but I have chosen not to and still do,” said Wu Hartwell. She was interviewed by Essence.com and she added, “When you come after my integrity or my family, then you’re going to see a different person.”
Lisa admitted that fans will find her reunion show outburst shocking. “People will be surprised because I was surprised and somewhat embarrassed myself. But I’m human and you have to let people know that they can’t just say whatever they want to you.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta is rife with tension and drama, practically filling every corner of the town. Throughout the first season, the lives of NeNe, Sheree, DeShawn, Kim and Lisa have been followed and pressure was evident in each episode.
Lisa said that she has learned much from and about the women she’s worked with, and promised herself that she would use the experience in the future. Dealing with the others will be one task that will surely bring out that Atlanta drama.
“I was naïve coming in and I’ve learned some people just have ill intentions, so I will deal with each individual accordingly. But people need to know that yes, I’m a businesswoman but I’m also a sparring woman!” Her boundless energy is no empty threat, as she has a brown belt in Kajukenbo, which she says is a “combination of Karate, Judo, Kimbo, Chinese boxing and Kung Fu.” With that said, Kim and the other cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta better watch out.
