It's the situation with DeShawn Snow all over again, y'all. The "circus" has just dropped another
According to a report by BV Buzz (which was later confirmed by her publicist), Lisa Wu Hartwell, who has been dealt with her share of of personal and financial drama, will be leaving the Real Housewives of Atlanta due to "creative differences."
"They basically wanted to script elements of Lisa's life and make her amp up the drama. She wasn't with that at all. Lisa felt like if her real life alone wasn't enough for the network, then maybe it was time for her to go," a source close the production told BV Buzz. Hartwell, the ex-wife of R&B singer Keith Sweat, will be featured on "as many as three" episodes of the new season; however she will not be featured in the season three photos and opening visuals. "The part where the ladies hold the peaches when the show opens up, she didn't participate in that shoot," the source added. Hartwell I'm told "feels good" about leaving the show – though her rep would not comment on our story – and apparently already has several post-'Real Housewives' gigs lined up.Lisa -- who says the decision to part ways with the girls was amicable, but you know that's not how things went down -- is now pursuing a career in other scripted programming -- like the movies. She has a part in the upcoming film "Black Ball" and will soon begin shooting another movie which stars Robert Downey Jr.
