Marlo Hampton joined the Season 4 cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta as a “friend” of the ladies, but despite her penchant for drama, producers elected not to make her a full-time cast member in Season 6, instead hiring Porsha Stewart and Kenya Moore to fill the opening left by Sheree Whitfield.
Marlo may have been passed over as a Housewife, but she’s still kept in close contact with several of the RHoA gals, most notably NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey. Those of you who caught NeNe’s spin-off last fall, I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding, know that Marlo was one of NeNe’s more difficult bridesmaids. The always fashionable gal clashed with NeNe’s BFF, Diana, who thought Marlo was just using her bestie for attention.
Ms. Hampton did try to upstage the bride on more than one occasion and NeNe admitted that she wasn’t the easiest person to get along with, but it looks like the pair are still friends. In fact, Marlo makes her return to RHoA this Sunday when the ladies head to a wine tasting. It’s like the mothership calling them home!
Kenya confirmed Marlo’s appearance this on Sunday’s show when one of her Twitter followers wondered how Marlo and Kenya would get along. “You’ll find out next week!” she tweeted back, Now that’s something we’d like to see!
However, you may be surprised to know that this time Marlo isn’t the one causing drama. Another new face, Natalie, takes care of that this time around.
