Lisa Wu Hartwell Speaks Out!

Lisa Wu Hartwell is FIGHTING BACK!  She gave an interview to Essence.com about Kim Zolciak‘s bullshit allegations that Lisa threatened to kill her!  This whore clearly wouldn’t know a death threat if you put it in a syringe and injected it into her face.  That’s right Lisa, don’t let this no class having trailer park trash ruin your professional name. 

It’s clear to Hollywood and Vine that this bad wig wearin’ ass broad is trying to extend her 15 minutes of fame at Lisa’s expense.  She has to make a dolla somehow now that she and Big Papa are over!  Guess she’ll have to find a new sugar daddy to lay on her back for…

Here’s what Lisa had to say:

ESSENCE.COM: Your costar Kim Zolciak has accused you of threatening to kill her. Is that true?
Never would I threaten to kill anyone. Kim made a very heinous statement about me. She said I was a crack whore [Zolciak denies making this statement.] and that’s the reason I don’t have my kids [Justin and Jason]. Not only did she lie and insult me, but she insulted my children and my integrity. I have never done drugs in my life. I am a businesswoman.

ESSENCE.COM: Wow. Who did Kim tell that you were a “crack whore”?
She was on the set of Demi Moore’s new film “The Joneses,” which costars David Duchovny and Chris Williams [the brother of “Ugly Betty” star Vanessa Williams], and the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast was invited to star in as extras. I declined, but she and Sheree went. She didn’t realize the people she said this to about me were friends of mine. I’m a businesswoman-an actress, writer and producer of movies-and to have her making up lies about me to people I could potentially work with one day is crazy! She said those things in front of Demi Moore.

ESSENCE.COM: Did you leave her threatening messages on her voicemail or text her messages to her cell phone?
Yes, I did call her and told her she needed to call me because I wanted to address the lies she’d been spreading about me. I was never threatening, but I did tell her that I would show up at her house if I didn’t hear from her to talk woman to woman. I believe she’s trying to extend her 15 minutes of fame, but why at my expense? I have a life outside of this show. It’s unfortunate that Kim has made me her target. Perhaps it’s because throughout the whole show you don’t see me engaging in any drama like this. What she said was very hurtful. She insulted me as a mother and a wife. She was once a wife and is a mother, so I don’t understand why she would do this.

ESSENCE.COM: Allegedly she’s put out a restraining order against you. Is that true?
I had heard that, but how could she? I’ve never threatened her or laid a hand on her. In fact, last week we did a talk show together and I didn’t say one word to her. Honestly, I really don’t think Kim is dealing with a full deck. She lies constantly. Of course when I asked her about what she said about me not having custody of my kids she denied that she ever said I was a crack whore. [Zolciak denies filing a restraining order.]

ESSENCE.COM: When we last spoke you said that you were a “sparring woman.” Does that mean you’d be willing to get physical?
Would I engage in any physical activity with Kim? Absolutely not. She’s not worth my time. Do I know how to defend myself if I were attacked? Yes. When I said I was a “sparring woman” I simply meant I’ll spar with anyone in the ring. Martial arts teaches you self-control especially when it comes to your emotions. You can’t just react to everything. I would only use it in self-defense. The weird thing is when I spoke to Kim she said, “Lisa, this is water under the bridge.” And then now I find out she’s claiming that she fears for her life. I wonder if all of this was staged. She knows how I feel about my kids and if anyone were to insult them it would strike a nerve. Again, I didn’t threaten this woman and I only made one call to her and absolutely no text messages. If I did, don’t you think they would have shown it on TMZ.com?

Okay, I know that it’s been a while since anyone has even thought about The Booty and the Beast a.k.a Beyonce and Jay-Z.  That’s why it doesn’t surprise Hollywood that now she wants to talk about her relationship, tattoo and marriage ALL right before her 3rd solo CD is due to be released!  Check out Essence.com for excerpts.

Obviously money, fame and millions of adoring fans can’t buy you confidence.  It’s so sad that after all these years she doesn’t feel that her talent alone will sell CDs, concert tickets, movie tickets, etc.  I love Beyonce, but right now she is on my sit down and hush list!  Boop!
