LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Marlo Hampton of RHOA is back tonight joining I Dream of NeNe’s cast. What happened to Marlo Hampton, why did she leave Real Housewives of Atlanta, and will she be coming back to RHOA for a new fall 2013 debut season? Days ago, Kenya Moore tweetd an image of her hanging out with Marlo in New York fueling speculation that Marlo make return to the upcoming Real Housewives of Atlanta upcoming season.
In 2011, LALATE first exclusively reported a secret project underway at Bravo called I Dream of NeNe. By fall of 2012, NeNe said that she and Marlo were still close. And then before the start of the last RHOA season, NeNe hoped that Bravo would sign Marlo as a full housewife. “Marlo will be on the show; she’s going to show up at an event. She’s just as fabulous as she was last season.” She added “I hope that she’s back next season … I think Marlo is a perfect Housewife, I really do”, Leakes tells news.
But it never happened. So will Marlo join RHOA for the 2013-2014 season? Marlo Hampton didn’t win any favorites with the smalls during the 2012 reunion show. Marlo, in fact, drew anger from Kandi Burruss during the telecast. Andy Cohen at the time told news that the confrontation between Marlo and Kandi left him surprised. “I didn’t see this fight town Marlo and Kandi coming”.
The feud between Marlo and Kandi was one of the best spats of that year’s reunion. Marlo questioned Kandi during the exchange if she was a “sugar mama” at the time. “I wasn’t even going to be mean … but now you wanna come at me?” Kandi fumed back.
