Marlo Hampton is rethinking some of her recent actions in her ongoing feud with NeNe Leakes, and she’s sorry.
Marlo and NeNe have been hurling insults at one another for well over a week via social media. Things between the pair have been tense since Marlo served as NeNe’s bridesmaid on “I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding.” It’s unclear what’s behind their falling out, but they got into a huge argument on the latest episode of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
The show, where NeNe and Marlo were seen arguing at Cynthia Bailey’s event, sparked a nasty online battle between the frenemies. NeNe’s accused Marlo of not being a true friend, and Marlo has accused NeNe of wearing a bad hairpiece. Now, however, it seems that Marlo’s not exactly proud of her mean-girl antics.
“Whether I want to be or not, I am a role model to my glam it up girls, nieces, goddaughters and other young women who are watching and imitating my behavior,” Marlo wrote in her blog.”I need to do better. I can’t promise you I’ll turn the other cheek if I’m slapped, (don’t suggest anyone try me, I’m not there yet).”
Taking responsbility for her part in the flame war, Marlo offered her regrets and asked for forgiveness from her Bravo co-stars.
“To all the RHOA/Bridesmaids I have offended: Phaedra, Kandi, Kim, Sheree, Diana, Pat and NeNe, I apologize,” Marlo stated. “We may never be friends or see eye to eye on anything, (and I’m cool with that!) however, I don’t need to tear you down to build myself up. I know who I am–The Diva, Marlo Patrice Hampton and I am the spotlight, but so are you. Let’s all bask in it.”
She added, “I apologize for my part in this shameful drama that reinforces stereotypes about who we are as black women. And pray that one day we’ll realize nobody wins when even one of us loses.”
