Actress Keisha Knight Pullium has a new man, and this time he's not a celebrity. Keisha was most recently in the news after being impregnated and then dumped by former Atlanta Housewife star Ed Hartwell.
Before dating Ed, Keisha was in a long-term relationship with radio legend Big Tigga. That relationship ended abruptly, when Keisha asked to get married.
Now Keisha is trying something new. Her new man isn't famous, or rich. But the two of them have a real GENUINE love and respect for each other. And in the end, that's what counts most of all.
