Real Housewives of Atlanta star Lisa Wu-Hartwell lost her Georgia home to foreclosure, TMZ.com reports.

Take a look at other reality stars with bad luck.

Hartwell and her husband, former Oakland Raiders linebacker Edgerton Hartwell, were evicted from their multi-million-dollar mansion last week after the couple reportedly defaulted on their loan. The bank sold it shortly after.

Hartwell's rep told TMZ that the couple was in talks with the lender to restructure the loan because the home had lost value, but those discussions failed. The bank then resold the house -- which the couple first bought for $2.9 million in June 2007 -- for $1 million less than the original price.

"Ed and Lisa are fine," their rep said. "They have settled in their [new] home that sits on 10 acres, and they own it." This isn't the first Atlanta housewife to lose her home. NeNe Leakes lost their 5,000-square-foot, 5-bedroom home shown on the hit Bravo series in November -- a month after an eviction notice was filed, claiming they owed $6,240 in past rent.
