Lisa Wu-Hartwell: Exposing Secrets About Season Three of 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'

Comments (55)


Until now, there's been little news about the upcoming third season of 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta.'

While serving as a panelist at the Essence Magazine/Johnson's Baby Oil-sponsored 'What's Your Beauty Secret?' luncheon in New York City today, entrepreneur-turned-reality star Lisa Wu-Hartwell spilled the beans to the BV Newswire about what viewers can expect for the upcoming third season of Bravo's most popular show.

"We start in two weeks and there's been a little bit of drama already," she confessed.

By drama, the Closet Freak fashion designer is referring to her recent Twitter beef with her cast mate and friend Nene Leakes.

On March 18, Leakes headed to Twitter to voice her disdain with "haters."

"Everybody showing love but I gotta thank the haters because without u, I wouldn't have the publicity so keep up the good work fool," the former stripper and 'Never Make The Same Mistake Twice' author wrote.

"I love chicks that will throw a rock and then hide their hand. Miss wanna be perfect. Oh please," Leakes added.

With there already being some confusion between the ladies about an event appearance, Wu-Hartwell took offense to the tweets and replied directly to her friend, asking if the comments were directed at her.

"I was the coolest with Nene, just a couple of weeks ago, but maybe we aren't close anymore," she confided.

"I care about Nene and we butt heads sometimes, but I was closest to Nene ... [so] I will hold off," the 38-year-old mother of three said, cutting herself off before she over-shared her frustration.

"It was like that last year, before we started taping, I had drama with Kim [Zolciak}. I'm like, 'Are you kidding me? We haven't even started,'"s she said.

And speaking of Zolciak, Wu-Hartwell also had a lot to say about the 'Tardy for the Party' singer's highly publicized "bisexual" status.

"Come on," she laughed. "[Kim will do] anything for attention."

"Come on, you're not gay! I have two gay brothers, come on girl, make up your mind," she added.

Zolciak, who recently told Life & Style magazine that she's serious about her girlfriend DJ Tracy Young, is one of the show's most popular characters.

"She is fun TV," Wu-Hartwell admitted. "She's great TV, she really is. They really cast that one."

Today, she was the first to confirm that Zolciak and Leakes, who had been rumored to be holding out on participating in the new season for more money, will be back for a third go round.

"They are all back [and] we are getting another housewife. So, we will see her thrown in the mix."

Though multiple NAACP Image Award-winning soap star Victoria Rowell and the older, ex-wife of the R&B singer Usher Raymond, IV, was rumored to join the cast, Wu-Hartwell says the two front-runners are not actresses or an athlete wife, like herself.

"I don't know which one got it," the former wife of R&B crooner Keith Sweat said, adding, "there are two girls they were looking at. One was a model and one was a feisty attorney and they are just going to show up and we are just going to interact."

The "feisty attorney" could be entertainment attorney Phaedra Parks, who repped Bobby Brown and Jermaine Dupri.

A former associate of one of the cast members is blabbing that Parks, who was a producer for BET's 'Tiny & Toya' series, has been chosen.

Parks has not confirmed the unconfirmed report.

A rep for Bravo could not be reached today.

In the meantime, Wu Hartwell, who recently appeared on Tyler Perry's 'Meet the Browns' TV show, plans to focus on acting and has landed a role in an upcoming martial arts film, which begins shooting in June.
