The Ed Hartwell-Keshia Knight Pulliam divorce has been a mitigated mess and media nightmare for both parties. Since the story broke that Hartwell, a former cast member on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” allegedly secretly filed for divorce in an Atlanta courthouse, the airwaves have been littered with partial stories, lies and innuendos about what really caused this marriage to implode so quickly after they got married only seven months ago.
Pulliam recently spoke about the recent news on her Play.it podcast “Kandidly Keshia” on this week’s episode. She sets the record straight and wants to move forward. Some key quotes from the can’t miss episode below:
ON THE RECENT NEWS ABOUT THE DIVORCE:
Pulliam and her brother, JP discussed the recent and clarified what’s happening. The transcript below:
Pulliam: All is well, you know at the end of the day, I’m good, my baby’s good.
JP: This is nothing new, we’ve been dealing with this for a long time. And dealing with these situations not even this type of situation, just tough situations in general or dealing with the media, it’s nothing new. Y’know, because you’re so private sometimes people don’t see it the way they’re seeing it now but I don’t think this is anything different or anything that you can’t handle or we can’t handle, it’s just part of life, it happens, not just to you, it happens to people who don’t have a microphone in front of their faces. We’re not special this happens every day, all day to women all across the united states, all across the world so we will deal with it and it will be fine.
Pulliam: The show must go on, you just keep it movin’. This isn’t the final destination, it’s a pit stop. No more tears, I’m laughing all the way from this point and enjoying life.
When talking about Hartwell’s ex-wife, Lisa Wu, Pulliam had this to say: “Lisa Wu and I have never, will never, be friends. I have no ill will for her, I don’t know her like that it was never a situation of stealing anyone’s husband. They were divorced many years before we even started dating and yes we live in Atlanta, it’s a small town. Have I run into her? Have I taken a picture with her? Absolutely, but I take pictures with people every day. And if you were categorized as friends with everyone you took a picture with, would that be accurate?”
“So I just want to say that I have no desire to continue to be a part of that lie and to continue to be part of a false made up story line that puts me in a defamatory, derogatory light and I don’t have anything more to say about that. But my attorney will be dealing with that from a legal standpoint with TV one and that whole situation, Lisa Wu, so forth and so on. It’s very simple, no need to say my name, because I’m not a part of it. I respect her for being EJ’s mom because I love him dearly and our connection is that we’re going to have the same ex-husband and our children will be siblings, but beyond that, that’s all. I wish you the best, and I’m moving forward.”
