Pulliam also talks about Hartwell's ex-wife, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Lisa Wu. The Cosby Show star expresses her displeasure with Wu mentioning her during an episode of TV One's Hollywood Divas. In one episode, Wu tells a friend that she was the one who introduced Pulliam and Hartwell, and claims that she only found out Pulliam and Hartwell were getting married through their 9-year-old son, Ed Jr.
"Lisa Wu and I have never, will never, be friends," Pulliam says. "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," she adds. "And if you were categorized as friends with everyone you took a picture with, would that be accurate?"
Pulliam says she wishes Wu the best.
"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," she says. "It’s very simple, no need to say my name, because I’m not a part of it. I respect her [Wu] 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."
"One thing I have found out about her -- and it's not to bash her -- is that she can tell a half-truth to make sure that she seems like, I don’t want to say the victim ... But that she's the one that's right,'" Hartwell said.
