The Real Housewives of AtlantaÂ star, Lisa Wu-Hartwell, has reportedly lost her home to foreclosure. As reported by TMZ.com, Lisa and her husband, Edgerton Hartwell, defaulted on their mortgage payments and were thus evicted from their Georgia mansion. Keep reading for more details..
One of Hartwell’s repssaid that the couple was in talks with the lender to restructure the loan because the home had lost value, but those discussions failed. Finally, the bank resold the house for $1.9 million, which was originally valued at $2.9 million.
However, the couple has now purchased a much more affordable home. “Ed and Lisa are fine,” their rep told TMZ. “They have settled in their [new] home that sits on 10 acres, and they own it.”
Lisa isn’t the only housewife having money problems these days. NeNe Leakes also lost her 5,000-square-foot, 5-bedroom home after reportedly owing $6,240 in past rent.
