It’s no secret that NeNe Leakes is the ‘Queen Bee’ on The Real Housewives of Atlanta and being that she brought former RHOA B-lister Marlo Hampton back into the fold on her spin-off show, she’s feeling some kinda way about Marlo’s recent actions.
It was just last week that Nene’s friend Diana Gowins brought up the fact that Marlo is a known opportunist and Nene even admitted that she’s aware of that fact.
Apparently appearing on ‘I Dream of Nene’ has sparked Marlo’s B-list aspirations and with the power of Nene behind her, Bravo Andy finally gave a lil and allowed her to appear on Season 6 of RHOA.
But wait… now that Hampton has her size 12 Loubou’s in the RHOA door, she’s determined to make her mark!
Mugshot Marlo has been reportedly buddying up to Koo-Koo Kenya Moore behind Nene’s back, in an effort to get more camera time and mother Nene is NOT amused.
To refresh your memory, Marlo is a convicted felon who violently slashed a friends face during a fight over a man. The disfigured friend subsequently committed suicide by jumping off of a Florida bridge.
Word on the curb was that Marlo’s criminal history paired with her “rumored’ ratchet escort activities led Bravo execs to the decision that they didn’t want her marred image as a part of their brand.
As proof of their prior decision, last season Marlo was blatantly edited out of RHOA footage as she attended Kenya’s ‘Forever Relevant’ costume party. Marlo actually won a prize for ‘best costume’ at the event and even appeared onstage with all of the ladies.

Nene is apparently VERY territorial about her friends. While she admits she wants them all to succeed, she takes loyalty and honesty very seriously.
That being said… Kenya Moore desperately needs a friend and Marlo desperately wants a job that doesn’t involve swapping bodily fluid, so they’ve apparently decided to help one another out.
Moore also needs a stylist, and from what I understand, Marlo’s been helping her up her style game. The pair have also been plotting and planning behind NeNe’s back and I guess she’s understandably upset.
From Nene’s perspective, Marlo is an opportunistic backstabber, who she’s opened reality doors for and even fought to get her back in the Bravo fold. Nene feels betrayed by Marlo’s secretive behavior and her tweets Friday evening said it all.
Marlo on the other hand seems to have that ‘money over everything mentality’. Since she’s a convicted felon who can’t get a ‘real’ job… and with this 2nd shot at stardom, now that she’s in, she’s willing to do whatever it takes to STAY in.
Juggling all the random men from those dating websites clearly can’t last forever, right?
Truth be told, that actually makes Marlo and Kenya the perfect ‘opportunistic’ pair.
So, Marlo fans…. your wish has finally come true. Marlo’s not a ‘housewife,’ but you’ll get to see her fashions in more that a few RHOA season 6 scenes as she kisses Kenya’s silicone filled “A”zz for camera time.
