'Real Housewife' Loses House, Still a Wife

8/11/2009 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lisa Wu-Hartwell needs a "Big Poppa" of her own ... the real housewife of Atlanta just lost her real big house in Atlanta.

'Real Housewife' Loses House, Still a Wife
TMZ has learned Hartwell and her husband, former Oakland Raiders linebacker Edgerton Hartwell, were booted from their multi-million dollar Georgia mansion last week -- after the couple defaulted on their loan and the bank sold it shortly after.

Hartwell's rep tells us 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 says "Ed and Lisa are fine. They have settled in their [new] home, that sits on 10 acres and they OWN it!"

#23 your a moron,

the fact is they were living beyond their means,
mansions, exotic vacays, jewrely,parties designer this & that lots of fancy cars.

she was in real estate & cannot even handle her own home??????

just because a house drops in value does not mean you stop paying..you continue to live & pay & the market will come back..with that warped logic that would mean 100% of America should stop paying..because everyone's home value has dropped


They blew cash on "other junk" rather than paying the mortgage..& besides they should not buy a house that huge unless you can pay cash.....

I don't understand this.They can't make payments on the 2.9m house so the greatest bank in the world,Bank of America forecloses.Then they go buy a home on ten acres and pay for it in cash.What am i missing here?B of A blew this one big time but then they don't care because they have bailout money from the American taxpayers.I HATE BANK OF AMERICA.

They are boring and not news worthy. NeNe and others bring the drama and laughs. Ms. Wu and her husband she LOVES so much can take a hike she's so hyper if I was her man I would have to slap her a@@ to shut the f@ck up.

Wow, I really like Lisa. Guess they're having a rough time since he's not playing football anymore. They're having a tough time just like the rest of us apparently. I wish them the best!

It's not as if they were homeless like so many Americans. They have a new house that sits on 10 acres, please.... They are not struggling, they have plenty of money. People need to live within their means and they have lots of means. They own their new home, implying it's paid in full.

Hmmm.... Your article is misleading. These are NOT foreclosure docs. The story really doesn't make that much sense! They paid cash for a new house on 10 acres?!? Hmmmm..... sounds like a "mad bank" and a short sale. That's done all the time these days with wealthy peeps. Sorry to burst your sensationalism bubble!!!
