We haven’t heard too much from Marlo since Kenya Moore took over the “crazy” role on RHOA, but she reportedly gave 20 families turkeys along with meals through her ‘Simply Giving’ campaign during Thanksgiving this year.
For Christmas, Hampton says she plans to do it all again…
It’s my way of “Simply Giving Back” to families during the holidays or a special time of the year. I was able to bless 20 needy families for Thanksgiving with a full meal and all the fixins.
I will also be giving back during Christmas and recruiting my Glam It Up girls to show them what it means to give back and do good service at at a soup kitchen.

So what or who made you love fashion as a teen?
As a teen I was in and out of foster care; so having the best fashion was something that seemed unattainable. I didn’t win Best Dressed, but I understood at an early age I couldn’t afford certain kinds of clothing when I was growing up. But, what I do remember about my mother was that she loved nice things. At times, when we did get clothes; we would get them from a second hand store. And she always kept us clean and extremely polished.
What designers can you not live without?
I think this may be sort of obvious, and a little birdie might have let you know… all things CHANEL. I am very partial to their clothes because CoCo Chanel was an Orphan. I can relate to that. She didn’t have parents to raise her, but look at what she’s overcome. Her story reminds me of mine. She had humble beginnings but Chanel is the Queen of Fashion, all of their pieces are classy and timeless!
What designer would you want to collaborate with on a collection? Would it be high end or price friendly?
I would love to work with the designers of J. Crew. Their pieces are simply stunning and they have a good mix of everything. Our collection would be what I call “Fashion Affordable.” Nice pieces, for an affordable price, with great style, trend but quality material.
There would be something for everyone. We all deserve a piece of Marlo.
What fashion accessories does a women need to be fabulous?
The one accessory that EVERY women needs to be Fabulous is CONFIDENCE. it’s the one accessory that’s Priceless. Money can’t buy it and as long as you wear that; nothing else matters!
Since we are in your closet right now give me one fashion secret that you can’t live without?
ELECTRICAL TAPE. It’s an instant breast lift without surgery. Makes your Breasts look real nice and perky!
