In an almost embarrassing display of arrogance, RHOA's Lisa Wu Hartwell told Star magazine in a recent interview that she is taking R&B crooner Keith Sweat back to court to seek full custody of their two boys so she can put them on her show.

As you already know, in 2003 Sweat won full custody of their sons Jordan, now 14, and Justin, 11, due to Lisa Wu's unstable maturity and poor judgment. Sweat was able to prove to a judge that she was an unfit mother due to her reckless spending habits. In court documents it was revealed that Lisa Wu routinely stole from Sweat right in front of the children during their "tumultuous" marriage.

The judge wrote:

"Mother has a history of spending money on herself excessively rather than providing for the children… There was some evidence at trial that Mother implicitly participated in robbing Father in the presence of the children." Source

Court documents make it clear that Lisa Wu's current custody challenge is financially motivated. In addition to seeking full custody of the boys, she is also requesting child support to supplement her income now that her husband, former NFL player Ed Hartwell, has no visible means of support.

Lisa Wu tells Star, "I've already been seeing them four or five times a week, but now the time has come when I want to have them with me full-time." She filed for custody in February of this year -- right around the time when she was filming her TV series. Her next court date is in October.

According to Star, "if she's successful, the next step will be having Jordan and Justin appear on RHOA." Hopefully the judge reads the blogs and will see that Lisa Wu is a gold digger who has no problem pimping her children out for television ratings.

As I wrote in an earlier post, Sweat is adamantly opposed to his children appearing in the television series, and in the past he has refused to sign a waiver permitting Bravo to film the boys.

“If Keith has a hang-up about our sons being on TV, I would be fine with that. But Real Housewives is supposed to be a reality series. The reality is that all the fans watching believe I only have one child,” said Lisa Wu who has a 2-year-old son, EJ, with Hartwell.

    The reality could be for her to talk about the kids or talk about her visitation "visits". The kids do not need to be on that show. Keith keep up the good work. I don't want to see the kids on the show. Everyone can change and get better, but there is always a reason why someone does not get custody of their kids.

    wow that first pic of her is gross.



  • pinky2083

    I hope the judge does not give her custody!

    I actually liked Lisa but not after reading this.

    yea anna she doesnt even mention them. thats her fault that the fans dont know she has other kids.

    im guessing that first pic is a promo pic from her line "closet freak"

    Anna While there may always be a reason the reason may not be a good one and I am not talking about this case I am speaking in general. IMO if the mother is not unfit and abusing the kids she should have custody. I know some men esp. with a son feel they should get custody and I dont agree with that. If the mother is ok with letting her ex hubby or baby daddy have custody that is fine that is HER choice but I hate to see men take women to court for custody of the kids when she is NOT unfit or mis treating the kids. Big pet peeve of mine and I dont have any kids yet.

    Lady she does/did mention her kids on the show before but since they arent on the show I guess she doesnt bring them up every 5mins.

    The kids are old enough to decide if they want to be on the show or not. Everybody elses kids are on the show so I dont see what the big deal is about her wanting hers on the show.

    LADIES pay attention ...
    That pic of Lisa and her *cough* man *cough* ... THAT is the look of A REAL PHUCKING LOSER (Real Talk)

  • alexander

    she's boring. i think she could disappear from the show herself without anyone even knowing.

  • Dhoward1913

    That first picture gives so much credit to my new motto.....You can't turn a hoe into a housewife. I have been on a quest this week to find an answer to why good men put so much effort into hoes, but less into real women.

    @ Dbrown

    Its less work.

    @ anna

    I agree with your comment. If she has spoken about her kids it mustve been once because I sure don't agree. I wonder if all of this happened around the time of her brothers death. If so it could explain a lot.

  • LadyJustice

    daisy she said "The reality is that all the fans watching believe I only have one child"

    so maybe she does need to mention them more if she wants us to know she has more kids. i havent heard her talk about them at all. im just sayin

  • miamore73

    From what I understand Keith Sweat is an abusive control freak. He was kicking her ass during that marriage and now he's using his kids as a way to control her. I'd bet there is a document somewhere that prohibits her from speaking about those kids on that show. Anything to try to keep her down cause she finally got rid of him.

    You know when Lisa and Nene are discussing being abused who do you think Lisa was talking about.

    There ain't no money that could have pulled me to Keith Sweat whiney shrivled up California Raisen lookin azzzz.

  • pointhimout

    wow yall are going in on her after a random post? ed's a loser?

    please never pull the covers to my life back and i promise to not pull yours. i usually more judgmental(sp), but man, if that camera was on us at all, or if we were "exposed," we'd all have less to say i think.

    As with any kid, I hope their best interest come first. whoever has to decide that, keep that in mind. yo, ed lost his job; it happens, especially in sports. i never heard of him until RHOA, so i'm not really sure he was ever a beast in football like that.

  • Daisy

    Lady she mentioned them on season one so if you did not catch it then you missed it so you stand corrected lol She said they live with their father and she sees them on the weekends. Since they dont live with her and they cant be on the show I can see why she doesnt mention them as much on this season.

    Sidebar: Lisa and Ed are a cute couple, but Lisa is somewhat stiff and robotic at times, which is just a little annoying at times.
