Among all the dueling divas on The Real Houewives of Atlanta
, the energetic, levelheaded Lisa Wu Hartwell
has done her best to stay away from the drama. But even this mother of three has her limits.
In the show's upcoming reunion special (airing Nov. 25 on Bravo), Lisa says there will be "super drama" when she loses her cool after costar Kim Zolciak
pushes her past her breaking point.
"I've been extremely diplomatic and there are horrible things I could have said but I have chosen not to and still do," Wu Hartwell tells Essence.com
. "When you come after my integrity or my family, then you're going to see a different person."
Lisa says viewers will probably be shocked by her sudden outburst on the reunion show.
"People will be surprised because I was surprised and somewhat embarrassed myself," she says. "But I'm human and you have to let know that they can't just say whatever they want to you."
Throughout the first season of the show, which follows the daily drama in the lives of wealthy Atlanta housewives NeNe
, Lisa and Kim
says she's learned a lot about the women and she'll put that knowledge to work when she deals with them in the future.
"I was naïve coming in and I've learned some just have ill intentions," she says, "so I will deal with each individual accordingly. But need to know that yes, I'm a businesswoman but I'm also a sparring woman!"
And she's not kidding. "I have a brown belt, one belt away from a black belt in Kajukenbo," she adds. "That's a combination of Karate, Judo, Kimbo, Chinese boxing and Kung Fu." -- Chris Willard
