Lisa Wu Returning To Reality TV On Todd Tucker’s Show "Hollywood Divas"
All that time that newlyweds Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker have spent apart since their wedding? It’s all going to be worth it. The mysterious television production that stole the Atlanta Househusband away to L.A. last month has just been revealed, and it’s a reality show starring some of our favs: Elise Neal, Countess Vaughn, and — get this — former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Lisa Wu!

That’s right, our dearly departed Lisa (who left after Season 2) is making her grand return to reality TV. Todd and Carlos King are co-producing the TV One series, titled Hollywood Divas, which is about black actresses living in L.A. and “attempting to stay relevant in the industry.” It’s a spin-off of the network’s already-popular show R&B Divas.

Lisa, of course, is one of those actresses in question, alongside a star-studded cast, including Elise (The Hughleys), Countess (The Parkers), Golden Brooks (Girlfriends), and Paula Jai Parker (Hustle and Flow). Is this not amazing?!

The series will premiere this fall, and as SVP Programming and Production D’Angela Proctor says, it will “share their experiences with inequality and obstacles when it comes to the Hollywood merry-go-round.”
Todd and Carlos also add: “We are excited to be a part of the TV One family on this groundbreaking series about the lives of Black Actresses in Hollywood. Our goal is to continue the success of capturing compelling stories about women from all walks of life.”

Kandi took to Instagram to congratulate both her man and her fellow RHoA alum.

“Congrats to my hubby @todd167 & @kingdomlos on their new show Hollywood Divas that they're producing for TV One!” she wrote. “The show stars Golden Brooks, Elise Neal, Paula Jai Parker, Countess Vaughn and @1lisawu !!!! Tune in this fall and see the REALITY of life as a black actress in Hollywood. I'm looking forward to seeing my girl Lisa Wu back on tv! This show is gonna be soooooo good! Spread the word! #TtuckerProductions #KingdomReign #imsoproudofMrTucker #imsogladtheyannounced theshow soicanstopkeepingit asecret.”
