Real Housewives Of Atlanta‘s Lisa Wu Hartwell Sues Ex-Husband Keith Sweat For Custody

<em>Real Housewives Of Atlanta</em>‘s Lisa Wu Hartwell Sues Ex-Husband Keith Sweat For Custody

lisa_wu_hartwell
The energetic and rabid networker of Atlanta’s Housewives Lisa Wu Hartwell has filed suit to gain full custody of her two sons from ex-husband Keith Sweat citing the “best interest” of the children.

Hartwell and Sweat were married in 1992 and have two sons Jordan and Justin together. She has described the marriage in interviews as an “extremely tumultous relationship” and had been awarded visitation rights to the children in 2003.

The two sons did not appear with Hartwell and her new husband former NFL player Ed Wartwell on Bravo’s Housewives of Atlanta because Sweat would not give legal permission. So, does this mean the two Sweat boys might be making their television debut on Housewives?

Real Housewives Of Atlanta Update: Singer Usher Raymond’s Wife Tameka Asked To Join And Nene Leakes Set To Spinoff

<em>Real Housewives Of Atlanta</em> Update: Singer Usher Raymond’s Wife Tameka Asked To Join And Nene Leakes Set To Spinoff

With “too human” DeShawn Snow being shown the exit on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Bravo has approached R&B singer Usher Raymond’s wife Tameka Foster to join the lineup of lunching ladies.

Tameka confirmed to Essence.com that she was asked to join the show but also says, “Although [Bravo] approached me, and I was flattered by the offer, I will not be joining the Real Housewives cast.”

Too bad! It would’ve been fun to see Tameka show up Kim Zolciak with higher wattage music industry friends, and compete against Lisa Wu Hartwell for the multi-tasking mother award as she juggled her clothing line and five children (two of which are Usher’s). Tameka even has a foundation similar to DeShawn’s that helps build self-esteem in young girls, so maybe diamond galas would’ve been on the menu also.

Nene Leakes, however, is set to return for season two and already working on a spinoff with Bravo that’s slated to air in 2010. Fingers and toes crossed Nene’s “gay boyfriend” Dwight Eubanks joins her on the new show!

Bravo Drops DeShawn Snow From Real Housewives Of Atlanta For Being ‘Too Human’

Bravo Drops DeShawn Snow From <em>Real Housewives Of Atlanta </em> For Being ‘Too Human’

Bravo has dropped the “destined for greatness” Deshawn Snow from the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta for reportedly being too low-key.

Snow tells Essence.com that one of the reasons cited for her removal from the second season of the network’s most popular installment of the Housewives franchise was because she was “too human for a circus show.”

“At the end of the day, I was the same person throughout the show,” says Snow. “I’m not the type to go “television” and start acting crazy…I was authentic and true to myself and I can’t control what other people do.”

Maintaining her ladylike composure, Snow says “They let me go and there are no hard feelings. I am thankful for the opportunity.”

So far the rest of the “circus” players are expected to return – Kim Zolciak, NeNe Leakes, Sheree Whitfield, Lisa Wu Hartwell, and fingers crossed Dwight Eubanks!

A Bravo rep tells PEOPLE “Bravo is bringing Atlanta back for season two but we haven’t confirmed the cast at this time.”

In addition to maintaining the DeShawn Snow Foundation and a monthly column for Streamingfaith.com, Snow is working on a faith based pre-teens and teenagers book series.

Will Sheree Whitfield Finally Debut “She By Sheree” At New York Fashion Week In February?

Will Sheree Whitfield Finally Debut “She By Sheree” At New York Fashion Week In February?

After launching the clothing line “She by Sheree” without any actual clothes, The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Sheree Whitfield may finally debut some garments at New York’s Fashion Week in February.

With an appeal pending on her divorce settlement of $775,000 lump sum, more than $1.1 million in marital property, and $2,142 a month in child support, we hope Whitfield will be able to secure more of that “seven-figure lump sum” settlement money she’s been asking for to help foot the $50,000 tab a runway show at Fashion Week costs. Maybe her “fashion fairy godfather” Mychael Knight of Project Runway can help!

Checking In With The Real Housewives Of Atlanta

Checking In With <em>The Real Housewives Of Atlanta</em>

Bravo has reportedly picked up a second season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but what have the ladies been up to since we last saw them spending money and squabbling?

The blogs are buzzing about Sheree Whitfield receiving only six figures in her divorce settlement and the downgrade of her children’s education from private to public. Her suburban Atlanta mansion, which was owned solely by husband Bob Whitfield, was even put on the market for a little under $3 million, but is now listed as “off market.”

Wig-tastic Kim Zolciak recently launched a blogsite and slapped up some photos of herself from a recent Bahamas trip in (what else?) a bikini. Her country album, which producer Dallas Austin vehemently denies working on in a rant on his Myspace blog, is a “no go for now,” a source close to Zolciak says.

We can assume DeShawn Snow is fully staffed at her McMansion because she has had plenty of time to put up a website featuring an online shop hawking bejeweled t-shirts and hats emblazoned with her fantastic egocentric quotes, “Google me” and “I always knew I was destined for greatness!”

Workaholic Lisa Wu Hartwell whose mantra is “If it doesn’t make me money, I don’t do it,” appears to be still juggling her real estate, jewelry and clothing businesses and denying she threatened to beat down Kim Zolciak for spreading rumours about her losing custody of two children Justin and Jason to ex-husband Keith Sweat because she was a “crack whore.”

Anderson Cooper’s favorite housewife Nene Leakes made headlines when news of her eviction from her rented prefab house got out, which Leakes denies. In an interview with Atlanta’s CBS 46 the “tell it like it is” breakout star expressed interest in doing more TV saying she would “love to do a talk show,” but “not the whole conservative sh** like Oprah or Tyra,” and revealed that she met husband Greg while working as a stripper in Atlanta. And as for all of those “ghetto” accusations the self-described “life of the party” told Essence.com, “I’m okay with it. If keeping it real is ghetto, then I’m ghetto.”

Last but not least, the unofficial sixth housewife, Dwight Eubanks! There is talk of the design maven getting his own reality show, but we haven’t seen anything official yet except the hilarious Behind the Purple Door trailer.

Fingers crossed all six reprise their reality roles in season two of The Real Housewives of Atlanta!

Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s NeNe Leakes Evicted From Her Rented McMansion

<em>Real Housewives of Atlanta</em>‘s NeNe Leakes Evicted From Her Rented McMansion

Bravo’s breakout star NeNe Leakes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta was evicted from her five-bedroom home, according to the New York Daily News.

It seems her hubby Gregg owes $6,240 in back rent and can “no longer afford the house” which they’ve been renting since its construction in 2006, according to the notice, which was filed Sept. 24

“It’s none of your business,” NeNe snapped in an email to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, insisting that she and her husband are “financial able [sic] and stable to live where ever we feel fits.”

We’re pretty sure Kim & Sheree are LOVING NeNe’s misfortune!

The Real Housewives Of Atlanta Reunion!

<em>The Real Housewives Of Atlanta</em> Reunion!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunite at the Biltmore hotel in downtown Atlanta to rehash the drama that went down during seven glorious episodes of back-stabbing, conspicuous spending, fundraising and trash-talking.

Here are Blindie’s highlights from the “Reunion” episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta:

  1. New Looks: Nene Leakes had a cute, short haircut and boasted about her “new look” and “new attitude,” while Sheree took the weave route with a long ponytail and bangs. Kim Zolciak, on the other hand, did not have a make-over but Dwight Eubanks promised to work on her and bring her up to the 21st century.
  2. Truth Or Fiction: Kim stood firm by her age of 29, oh excuse me she’s 30 now, and she also claimed to wear a wig because she thought she had cancer and had been losing her hair and lost 25 lbs. After prodding from host Andy Cohen, she finally admitted she never had cancer.
  3. Team Nene: Yes, we are on Nene’s team! So is CNN’s Anderson Cooper! And apparently Andy Cohen is as well because he totally gave her way more air time than the other ladies -love it! “Fun, exciting, BAM,” that’s Nene!
  4. Rumours: Nene puts those pesky stripper rumours to rest, or does she? When Andy asks if she is an ex-stripper Nene replies, “I’m still a stripper…I am a stripper…I strip for my husband.” BAM!
  5. Kim’s Country Music Career: Nene thinks Kim can’t sing, Lisa Wu Hartwell says she’s pathetic and has no talent, but nevertheless Kim says her album is coming out in early January and her new single is called “Tightrope.” We can’t wait to hear it…oh wait, yes we can.
  6. The Notorious Big Papa: Kim says she is “on and off again” with her sugar daddy Big Papa and claims he is filing for a divorce, while Nene says he is very much married and that Kim should “close [her] legs to married men!” BAM!
  7. Cat Fight: Nene and Kim curse up a storm as they argue and Lisa Wu Hartwell has to hold Nene back, even going so far as to lay her tiny body across Nene to block an altercation. Nene of course gets the last words in calling Kim a “trashy hooker,” threatening to snatch her wig off and saying “I’ll see you outside!” BAM!
  8. Another World: DeShawn Snow does not understand why everyone makes a big deal about her no-cooking, no-cleaning lifestyle and doesn’t know how much she spends on her household staff. Is that why Lisa Wu Hartwell said “you hear crickets” as DeShawn struggled to answer Andy’s other question. We want to know how much DeShawn spent on those Hilary Duff chompers -they are definitely not God given!
  9. Race Relations: Nene calls Kim out on her “chicken” comment from episode six. We called Kim out on that one too!! That felt way too racial and we saw that smirk on Kim’s face when she said it. Kim defends herself with that tired old excuse of “Half of my friends are black.”
  10. The Sixth Housewife: Dwight Eubanks is declared the sixth Housewife! He is in full weave regalia as he joins the women and seats himself in between Sheree and Kim then proceeds to mock them by fawning over them and saying, “Oh, you’re so pretty.” So what does Dwight think of all the catfighting? “Très, très, très dèclassè,” and what does he think about his sexuality, “I never wanted to be a woman, I love my toolbox.” And we love you, Dwight!
