Lisa Wu Hartwell is Not Dramatic Enough for The Real Housewives of ATLPublished by Dior Noir on Thursday, July 29, 2010 at 3:00 pm.
A source close to the production told AOL’s BV Buzz: “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.”
Lisa’s publicist told the Atlanta Journal Constitution a slightly different story and said “she doesn’t want to just be a reality star.” The 38-year-old real estate agent dabbled in fashion design during the show and has gotten some acting gigs lately (can we call and appearance on Meet the Browns acting?) and just released a fitness DVD. Her publicist also said she’s working on a film with Robert Downey Jr.
As for Housewives Lisa will make a few appearances but two new characters will be introduced next season: Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey. We’re already hearing there was plenty of drama at Bailey’s recent wedding which was reportedly held up for 45 minutes thanks to NeNe’s antics.
Sounds like the makings of a season filled with the drama that Bravo was looking for.
