Two sides to every story.

Keshia Knight Pulliam
 shared hers in her first interview since her estranged husband, Ed Hartwell, blindsided her with divorce papers earlier this year, breaking down in tears on ET. The former Cosby Show actress said there's a lot more to the story than Hartwell let on, and dropped a couple of bombshells of her own.

Asked about the paternity test Hartwell asked the pregnant start to take, Keshia clearly denies any infidelity on her part, saying she "never cheated on him during my marriage." She continued, "That's not who I am. That's not an issue. There's no problem. I've never been unfaithful to my husband. This is his daughter."

Instead, she said Hartwell was the one who was unfaithful during their short marriage. "When earlier in my marriage I was faced with this, I was ready to leave," she said. "I had divorce papers ready. I presented them to him. He begged … He said: 'Please, I want my family,' he said all the right things. Once I was pregnant I decided to give him another chance."
