What Happened To Lisa-Wu Hartwell?

Ever wonder what happened to Lisa from the Real Housewives of Atlanta? One of our guest writers, from AstroChicks.com, reported the following.

Maybe they should change the shows name to “Broke Housewives of Atlanta.” The only housewife with REAL money is DeShawn Snow. According to news reports, NeNe Leakes has lost her home to foreclosure, Kim is selling her home, Sheree is still waiting on her divorce settlement, and Lisa Wu Hartwell had to file bankruptcy.

Lisa and her hubby Ed Harwell live in Duluth, in the exclusive gated community of St. Marlo Country Club. They own the Hartwell and Associates real estate firm, Lisa has a jewelry line, and a kids fashion line. She even has a business mantra, “If it doesn’t make me money, I don’t do it.” So what happened? Why did she file for bankruptcy?

In 2007, after a bad business investment over a movie Blackball, Lisa Wu Hartwell had to file for bankruptcy. In the bankruptcy documents, it stated she had gone by several names: Sharon Millette Wu, Sharon Lisa Sweat, and Lisa Wu-Sweat. Gosh, why so many names Lisa? Also, it looks like her ex hubby Keith Sweat actually loaned her $150k to make the film. Translation, she filed bankruptcy so she didn’t have to pay him back.
Listen I can understand that Lisa may've been too "boring" for some people, but with all the drama that goes on with each 'Housewives' show, you need a dose of sanity to sort of bring things back to planet earth every now and again. My guess is that Bravo execs feel that Kandi can fill that role now on RHOA without being too bland (after all she does have the backdrop of a hectic music career), but I still miss Lisa and Ed.
