*Former ‘Real Housewife of Atlanta” Lisa Wu married Ed Hartwell in 2005 and the couple had one son, Ed Jr. before Hartwell filed for divorce in 2011. During their divorce, Lisa and Keshia Knight Pulliam were cool (according to Lisa).
Keshia later married Ed and mere months after they tied the knot, Ed filed for divorce. Meanwhile, Keshia is pregnant and Ed is demanding a paternity test because he isn’t sure the baby is his.
Now, Lisa is clapping back in response to Keshia’s version of their ‘friendship’ amid her divorce from Ed. On an episode of “Hollywood Divas,” Lisa mentioned that she was surprised Ed married Keshia considering their history. Meanwhile, Keshia said on her podcast that she has never been — nor will she ever be — friends with Lisa Wu.
Specifically, Keshia said the following:
Lisa Wu and I have never, will never, be friends. I have no ill will for her, I don’t know her like that it was never a situation of stealing anyone’s husband. They were divorced many years before we even started dating and yes we live in Atlanta, it’s a small town. Have I run into her? Have I taken a picture with her? Absolutely, but I take pictures with people every day. And if you were categorized as friends with everyone you took a picture with, would that be accurate?
I just want to say that I have no desire to continue to be a part of that lie and to continue to be part of a false made up story line that puts me in a defamatory, derogatory light and I don’t have anything more to say about that. But my attorney will be dealing with that from a legal standpoint with TV One and that whole situation, Lisa Wu, so forth and so on. It’s very simple, no need to say my name, because I’m not a part of it. I respect her for being EJ’s mom because I love him dearly and our connection is that we’re going to have the same ex-husband and our children will be siblings, but beyond that, that’s all. I wish you the best, and I’m moving forward.

Lisa Wu has responded to Keshia’s denial of their friendship and basically says that Keshia is thirsty for reality TV. She has also warned the former Cosby kid to keep her name — and her son’s name — out of her mouth.
In a now deleted lengthy IG post, Wu said: “I’ve allowed people to assume as they wish and it’s been hurtful. But It’s no 1’s Biz & there is children involved. Not only her unborn child, but my 9-year-old who can read very well.”
“I wasn’t going 2say anything but enough is enough! It’s ironic that someone is trying 2 avoid “this” type of media & drama when she has been the one that keeps this going. I have said not 1word about this unfortunate situation. This type of attention & media is beneath her? I can’t tell. I do know who’s writing this humorous satire but it is comical and exhausting at the same time,” she added.
