Contrary to popular belief, Marlo Hampton said she has no desire to upstage her friend and “I Dream of NeNe” namesake NeNe Leakes.
“I would never do that to a friend. I’m just Marlo. It just is what it is. I’m not trying to upstage her at all. I’m not trying to upstage anyone,” Marlo told V-103 DJ Egypt Sherrod.
Marlo is just one of NeNe’s nine bridesmaids, and the others accused her of trying to steal NeNe’s shine, especially when Marlo deviated from the group and decided to do her own thing.
All the ladies were asked to wear blue dresses to an event during NeNe’s bachelorette party. Though Marlo’s dress had blue in it, it was not a solid color like the other bridesmaids. So, instead of NeNe standing out from the crowd, both she and Marlo stood out.
“I could have worn the blue dress, but don’t come to me asking me to wear the dress the day before. You’d already told me a week before, something blue. I went and found that dress, I had it altered,” explained Marlo who also wasn’t a fan of the garment.
“They left the ugliest shade of blue for me,” she said.
Before Marlo apologized to the ladies, NeNe wondered whether her “Real Housewives of Atlanta” friend would also attempt to stand out at the wedding. Fans will have to watch the two-hour wedding special Sunday to find out how that all goes down.
