There are whispers that Marlo Hampton may have been fired from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” after an explosive run-in with NeNe Leakes.
It sounds like things may have gotten really ugly at the Bailey Bowl in Atlanta over the weekend. Supposedly, tempers flared off-camera as NeNe and Marlo got into a verbal spat and NeNe accused Marlo of “putting on” for Bravo cameras.
Once very good friends, NeNe and Marlo got in each other’s face during their altercation, but things didn’t get physical. However, one insider claims that Marlo will no longer be filming any episodes of “RHOA” following the incident.
TheJasmineBrand.com reports that producers for the show may have been trying to promote a storyline for season 6 of “RHO” that’s centered around the pair’s falling out. There are also reports that NeNe confronted executive producer Carlos King, who has also worked on “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,” because she believed has was instigating the altercation for potential ratings.
If the rumors are to be believed, this would mean that Marlo has hired back onto the show as a supporting cast-member at least. After her run filming “I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding,” she was spotted having a kiki with the rest of the Atlanta housewives.
Since filming for for “RHOA” season began, Marlo and Kenya have gotten pretty chummy. Knowing that Kenya and NeNe have gotten loud with each other at least once since returning to work on the show–and given NeNe’s disappointment in Marlo–it stands to reason that the pair may not have been on the best of terms when they ran into each other at Cynthia Bailey’s recent athletic event.
Marlo has not spoken on the gossip at this time, but NeNe has denied that she ever raised a hand to anyone on the set. In tweets following the incident, whatever it may have been, NeNe was definitely aiming some shade at Marlo and her extensive rap sheet.
“Some people just belong n jail! See u court…I don’t regret when I do things out of the goodness of my heart! It’s sad when ppl can’t see ur heart & all that you’ve done 2 help them,” Nene tweeted. “I don’t know 1 person on this earth that is worth me hitting! The most I will do is hit u wit the court system…U can’t throw every dog a bone because they might bite your hand. #lessonlearned”
NeNe then pointed out that accusations like this are nothing new to her, writing, “Every season they claim I hit somebody but u haven’t seen it yet have u! That’s because it never happens.”
