Despite a report by TMZ revealing that Lisa Wu Hartwell and husband Ed Hartwell had their home foreclosed, Lisa is now denying the foreclosure to People magazine. We were “not evicted, it was a short-sell. It was not a foreclosure,” says Lisa.
Lisa, 38, continues, “It was decision that we made and not one that was made for us. But we were not put out.” As for the TMZ report that the couple defaulted on their bank loan, she re-affirms that an attempt to restructure the loan “didn’t work out.” Lisa claims, “we chose to move, we were not evicted.”
It seems short-sell is what they’re calling foreclosures nowadays. I take it she “chose” to move after receiving notification of a foreclosure from her bank. Even her rep confirmed the foreclosure story yesterday. Plus TMZ has documents confirming the story.
Lisa however admits her family has moved into a new “downsized” home in a neighboring community due to the pressure of the recession. This clashes with the comment her rep made yesterday, saying the couple has moved into a new home sitting on 10 acres. Not sure how 10 acres is downsizing.
TELL US – ARE YOU BUYING LISA’S SPIN ON THIS STORY?
TMZ is reporting today that Lisa Hartwelland her husband, former Oakland Raiders linebacker Ed Hartwell, were booted from their multi-million dollar Georgia mansion last week — after the bank foreclosed on the place. The bank sold it shortly after.
Lisa’s rep does not deny the story. The rep claims the couple was in talks with the lender to restructure the loan because the home had lost value — but that failed. They originally bought the place for $2.9 mil back in 2007 but the bank only got $1.9 mil when they resold it this month.
The rep continues, “Ed and Lisa are fine. They have settled in their [new] home, that sits on 10 acres and they OWN it!”
TMZ has managed to do the impossible. They were able to get their hands on a rare photo of The Real Housewives of Atlanta’sKim Zolciak with her infamous and rumored to still be married “Big Poppa.“
According to TMZ, the photo was taken last November at the Hotel Atlantis in the Bahamas. Though TMZ fails to name the man in the photo, he definitely strikes a strong resemblance to Lee Najjar, who has been pretty much confirmed to be Big Poppa.
Kim has claimed Big Poppa was separated from his wife in the past. There has however been no official confirmation on whether or not Lee Najjar is really separated.
A photo of Lee Najjar with his wife, who is also ironically named Kim, below. You be the judge.
We reported a police report filed by Kim Zolciakof The Real Housewives of Atlanta, alleging that fellow castmate, Nene Leakes choked her during an argument. The choking incident allegedly took place back in April.
Nene however denied the accusation yesterday while out with New Jersey cast member Danielle Staub, at the gay club Barracuda in New York.
Kim is now fighting back in a new interview with RadarOnline. “NeNe’s a liar, and I have a police report to prove it,” said Kim. “Violence is not something I support or agree with. And she says she’s an advocate against domestic violence…what, is it a how to?”
“Well I have a police report and two witnesses…so nice try,” Kim told RadarOnline. “She definitely crossed the line. It’s one thing to call me names, but it’s another to put your hands on me. It was incredibly traumatic and I didn’t sleep for three days afterwards.”
A new episode of the Atlanta housewives airs tonight. Will watch to see if the previewed fight between Nene & Sheree versus Kim can top the catfight that took place last week involving party planner, Anthony Shorter, and Miss She by Sheree.
During the premier, not only did we meet Kandi’s adorable young daughter Riley, but also her fiance AJ, a father of 6 kids. Well the news around the blogmosphere is that AJ’s 6 kids are by 4 different women. You read right, 4 different women. Plus both Kandi’s mother and daughter seem to be against them getting married.
In a new interview with Eonline, Kandi reveals information regarding the wedding, and sheds light on her dispute with NeNe Leakes. Read on to find out all the juicy details. It seems Kandi’s wedding to her fiance is on hold for now. Kandi reveals she and her fiance are experiencing some problems.
These are excerpts from the interview.
Will we see your wedding on camera?
No, uh-uh, it didn’t get that far. You will see us trying to plan, but you will see a lot of the problems and the different issues that are going on.
Have you set a date?
We haven’t set a date, and I’m just going to be real with you: We have been having serious issues. My drama has been ongoing since the taping has stopped. We just got engaged right before the taping of the show. So things that I would have to deal with or things I would have to learn about, I had to learn about and deal with it while the cameras were there, which makes things even more tense, you know what I mean?
Of course, but are you still together?
Um, we are dealing with things, but that’s about as far as I can go.
The tweets were flying due to the very heated on-camera argument she had with her party planner Anthony. When Anthony snapped to Sheree, “You better check yourself,” she hissed back with what is destined to be her signature line, “Who’s gonna check me, boo?”
After watching the scene unfold on TV, Sheree says, the incident looked really bad and people like Anthony are opportunists who want publicity. She also adds, “He thinks he’s going to benefit from it, but to me, you look like a fool. You look like an ass on TV. Who wants to be remembered like that?”
Kim Zolciak of the Real Housewives of Atlanta recently filed a police report against fellow cast member Nene Leakes, alleging Nene strangled her during an argument. The Insider is reporting that the Atlanta police have also confirmed that the incident took place, though the case is still under investigation.
According to Kim’s publicist, the police report has been made public about the physical altercation between her client and Nene.
“Mrs. Leakes has now proven to the world that she is not the woman she claims. She has spoken publicly of being a former victim of domestic violence and her charity work to help others that have suffered the same. And then she would have such anger to choke my client instead of acting like a REAL woman and talking their personal conflicts out or simply walking away. Violence is a very serious issue and we are not going to be taking this incident lightly”.
In addition, the publicist hopes that Nene will get the anger management therapy she needs to deal with her emotions.
It’s really sad that these two grown women are fighting- I suspect we will be watching the real show down on subsequent episodes of the Real Housewives of Atlanta series.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s second season premiered with a bang last night. The star of the show was undeniably Sheree Whitfield. Her argument with the most unprofessional man in the history of television was the highlight of the show.
Miss She by Sheree herself appeared on Bravo’s late night show – “Watch What Happens.” Host, Andy Cohen, was able to get party planner, Anthony, on the phone to tell his side of the story.
Anthony admitted what I suspected in saying the party was being offered for free. Anthony however refused to apologize to Sheree for being extremely unprofessional, and even threatening to physically hit a woman on national television. He however decided Sheree’s mother deserved an apology for his “Your mama is a bitch” comment.
It seems Anthony’s plan to offer a free party to Sheree in exchange for free publicity for his company is backfiring. I can’t imagine people will be waiting in line to hire him after the way he treated her. A “professional” man threatening to hit a woman is completely unacceptable under any circumstances. This “man” has no idea what it means to be a professional.
He makes the situation even worse by refusing to apologize to Sheree. Anthony also claimed the free party he was planning for Sheree was worth $60,000. Sure it was Anthony. When asked about the situation, Sheree simply referred to Anthony as being “crazy.” Can’t disagree with her on that one.
UPDATE – This story gets better. Anthony sent an email to SandraRose denying that he is gay. He claims to be married to a woman with children. He sure had me, and all of America fooled. What people think of his sexuality should be the least of his worries.
