lisa wu hartwell says goodbye to real housewives of atlanta

Looks like Lisa Wu-Hartwell is ready to move on!

Here's a statement from Lisa about her decision to leave Real Housewives Of Atlanta:

There comes a time in your life where times change, seasons change and it’s time for something new. On reality television shows, when it gets so popular and hot the desire and the need to be on top is always there. The first season of Real Housewives was very organic. What you see is what you got and that’s exactly how it happened. The second season we had the ratings, so you wanted to keep them there so the producers want to stir the pot a bit. Our ratings—we were killing everybody so it’s like we gotta stay on top so they had an idea of where they want their characters to go and they forget that we’re not characters in a show we’re real people living our lives. And sometimes people want to turn you into a character of your former self and I’m just not willing to perform or create something that isn’t there.

They have an idea of who they want you to be and you can only take that for so long and that’s why I said it’s time to go because I’m not willing to compromise my integrity. It’s like all Black people don’t act this way and it’s unfortunate that we feed into those stereotypes sometimes. I understand you don’t want to watch paint dry. I get it. But it’s a fine line between performing and acting a’fool. I had very real moments, I got upset on the reunion show but at the end of the day there’s a time and a place for everything. I have other aspects of my life that are interesting as you can guess but this is reality you’re not gonna tell me what I should focus on. So it comes a point where the pressure from the producers⎯they want to keep those ratings high so they’re like this is what’s going on this season and I’m like wait a minute, this is supposed to be reality television and some things I’m not willing to compromise. You have to have integrity and stand up for what you believe in and I refuse to create things that are not there for the sake of their ratings because I still have to live my life when the show is over.

Good for you, Lisa! We fully support your decision!

    Thank you Lisa. The Atlanta housewives are a disgrace. Nene is nothing but a thug former stripper married by her former favorite customer.

    Lisa had some class. There are so many black women who are interesting and educated…this bunch (including Kim the wigger) are an embarassment.

    The dumbing down of America continues.

    All the sweetness your spewing now is making my teeth rot.

    From the little I saw of her on the show, and in clips, she was a vacant idiot anyway. She was all silent and baby like the entire season, then on the reunion she threatens to "throw a woman over a couch" to which she never made good on. Her replacements are 5000x more interesting than her, and thats sad, considering one of them is "Supermodel Cynthia."

    That's what Lauren Conrad did. And that's what Spidie, Jess and Nick and many others should have done. It gets confusing and they try to live up and ultimately turn into their characters. Like Spencer. I could bet anything if that boy didn't go on that show, he would have been a normal kid. Still and asshole, but like an average everyday asshole. Not a crazy psychopathic one.

    Lisa..u were one of the reasons why i watched the show. I agree that the show has taken a different turn, trying to stir up drama for ratings. I commend u for wanting to leave and the show is basically like a sitcom now. We don't know what's real and what's reality. And @ Cejers…wow! It's obvious you like fake drama…or just drama and Lisa would have definitely thrown that trick over the couch..I promise you!!

    Good for Lisa. She just got major points from me. She just said what we all already knew….Reality shows are fake…

    Good for you. A wise choice …not many people would have the confidence to move to a higher place. Congrats

    I have watched the 2 new season eppys of RHOA and I'll tell ya it is really boring this year. Really boring. Who cares that NENE's kid is 20 and doesn't work or go to school. He looks like a big fat lazy kid anyways. Kim's hair is ridiculously ugly this season and her assistant Sweetie is a brain dead I don't know what. The tranny Sheree is still as ugly as can be and still looks like a man. Even her body looks more like a man this season. The 2 new girls. OMG The preggers one. She is something else that can go away like right now and the model can be right behind her. If it doesn't start getting interesting I will not tune in any longer. Oh and Kandi needs singing lessons.

AND KANDI CAN SING HER ASS OFF, WHO THE HELL YOU THINK YOU ARE, CAN YOU TOP ANY OF THEM? YOU ARE A HATER,HATER

    Um, yeah, this idiot is delusional. She didn't decide to leave the show. They didn't offer her a contract on a new season. When she LOST her home due to foreclosure (and lied about it if any of you remember and tried to say that they were just "downsizing") they moved a considerable distance outside of the Atlanta area. That is why Bravo didn't have her back. It was no longer convenient to film her. And Bravo announced that quite some time ago. But as usual, she comes out with some bullshit reason instead of the truth.
