Keshia appeared in her first commercial – for Johnson & Johnson – when she was only 9 months old. When Pulliam was three years old she became a part of “Sesame Street”, and the movie entitled “Polly”. After that Keshia’s net worth started to grow quickly – one of her most famous roles was that of  Rudy in “The Cosby Show” created by Bill Cosby, Michael J. Leeson and Ed. Weinberger from 1984-92. Other movies and shows that Keshia has appeared in include “The Last Dragon”, “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court”, then in 2002 Pulliam participated in “Fear Factor” and “The Weakest Link,” and won both of these shows. In 2004 Keshia appeared in Chingy’s music video for the song entitled One Call Away, and  all these projects added steadily to Keshia Knight Pulliam’s net worth.

In addition, the following year Keshia acted in the movie entitled “Beauty Shop”, directed by Bille Woodruff, in which she had an opportunity to work with such actors as Queen Latifah, Alicia Silverstone, Alfre Woodard, Adele Givens and many others. In 2008 Keshia became a part of “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” through 2012, which also gained a lot of success and boosted Keshia’s popularity, not to mention  that it had a huge impact on the growth of Pulliam’s net worth. There are more movies that Keshia has appeared in, including “Death Toll” in 2008, “Madea Goes to Jail” 2009 and others among over 20 TV productions. All these appearances increased Keshia’s net worth  – additionally, Pulliam was a part of “Splash” in 2013, and “The Celebrity Apprentice Season 7” in 2015, but was the first eliminated in both TV shows.

Just to mention that despite her acting commitments, Keisha didn’t neglect her education, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology from Spelman College in 2001.

In her personal life, Keisha Knight Pulliam married American Football player Edgerton Hartwell in 2016, and their daughter was born in 2017; however, meantime Hartwell had apparently filed for divorce, apparently a somewhat acrimonious situation still to be resolved, including custody of their daughter!

1[on her personal life]: My parents and my family really tried to maintain as much of a normal environment as possible. When I went home it wasn't Keshia Knight Pulliam the actress, the glitz, the glamour. It was Keshia the daughter. Oldest of four children, who washed the dishes and did everything she was supposed to do.
2[on Bill Cosby, who played Cliff Huxtable]: This is my return to prime-time television since The Cosby Show. There was no better foundation than to work with the talented cast with Mr. Cosby leading the way. I got my start with the best and learned the best from the beginning without picking up bad habits coming into the game and making sure I was on top of everything as it concerns my craft.
3[on her favorite The Cosby Show (1984) episode of all-time with Bill Cosby]: Mr. Cosby and I, we had a competition going on to see who would do a better job at lip-syncing. That was our little inside thing. I think I did a better job.
