Real Housewives: Lisa Wu Hartwell Leaves the ‘Atlanta’ Cast

Fellow fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, it saddens me to report the departure of a fan favorite from the show.

Jawn Murray of Black Voices Web has reported that Lisa Wu Hartwell will leave the show this upcoming season due to “creative differences” over aspects of her presence on the show.

“They basically wanted to script elements of Lisa’s life and make her amp up the drama. She wasn’t with that at all,” a source from RHOA’s production revealed to Murray. The source also revealed that Hartwell didn’t participate in the opening credits or any of the publicity photos for this upcoming season, and will only appear in about “as many as three” episodes this year. Reps from Bravo and Lisa’s private camp didn’t return any calls to Mr. Murray. Lisa will be the second Housewife to leave the Atlanta cast after DeShawn Snow, who left following the show’s first season.

Maybe this can attribute to the show’s third season premiere not being put on the schedule yet?

When filming began earlier this year (in March), reports hit the net about Lisa’s tenure on the show coming to an end due to her new location, which is forty-minutes away from where most of the show is produced, making travel hard on the producers. Other reports consisting of hotshot ATL lawyer Phaedra Parks and model Cynthia Banks joining the cast also surfaced, further airing the flames that Lisa’s time on the show was not long for this world.

Despite her departure from RHOA, Hartwell, 38, has a slew of projects lined up to show that she is more than a Bravo ‘Housewife’. On top of her Closet Freak clothing line, Lisa has had appearances in Tyler Perry’s Meet The Browns, a movie called Black Ball, and a role opposite the new king of cool, Robert Downey, Jr. Not too shabby for a ‘reality star’.

So what do you guys think? Will you miss Lisa as much as I will? Who will be a barrier between the women now?
