Real Housewives of Atlanta Catfight of the Week: Marlo Hampton vs. Kandi Burruss

Anticipation was high with NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak in the same room for the first time on this season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, yet the claws came out elsewhere during Cynthia Bailey's School of Fashion opening, as newcomer Marlo Hampton and Kandi Burruss engaged in their own shouting match.

This little face-off started during last week's episode when Marlo appeared as a guest on Kandi Koated Nights. We thought it was a bit bold of Kandi to ask Marlo how she made all of her money, but apparently Marlo had told her that she could ask her anything. Of course, that didn't mean that Marlo was going to give honest answers.

When Kandi posed the personal question, Marlo replied that she made her money from God. Hm. When Kim got word of this, she snarkily commented that God gave her a "hole" to make her money from, since Marlo has a reputation for dating rich guys who take care of her. Gee, who else has that reputation?

Kandi was so unsatisfied with Marlo's response that she felt the need to once again confront her about the situation at Cynthia's grand opening. This time, Marlo was a bit more prepared. First, she explained that she felt the question was extremely inappropriate for a public discussion. Then, she accused Kandi of being a Big Momma — someone who takes care of guys. (Really?)

As the rest of the Housewives enjoyed the sideshow — except for Kim, who left in a huff after having to hear Big Poppa's name repeatedly — Kandi and Marlo were interrupted by Cynthia making a round of toasts.

This is a toughie, but I think we're going to have to go with Marlo on this one. Gasp!

Basically, we tend to agree that the question is somewhat inappropriate. Clearly, Kandi is just trying to stir up dramz. More than that, though, who cares how Marlo made her money? It's really her business.

The main reason Marlo gets the edge, however, is because she handled herself with poise when she was confronted by Kandi and her cronies. Yet when she turned things around on Kandi and called her a Big Momma, Kandi was all steamed and furious.

Sounds to us like someone can dish it but can't take it.
