Once upon a time, Marlo Hampton may have had aspirations of becoming a star on Real Housewives of Atlanta. However, after the always impeccably-dressed gal failed to register with viewers in Season 4 — during which she was billed as a “friend” of the Housewives — that dream was dashed. Sure, Marlo popped up as one of NeNe Leakes’ bridesmaids on the OG H’wive’s spin-off, I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding, but she and NeNe have since had a falling out and we doubt Marlo has much of a future of reality TV.

But believe it or not, Marlo’s life doesn’t seem to be lacking much of anything, even when it comes to reality TV stardom. Yes the RHoA stars are currently enjoying an all-expenses-paid vacation on some picturesque island, but so is Marlo! OK, so Bravo isn’t footing the bill for Ms. Hampton, and we don’t know that she’s on an island per se, but girlfriend is still soaking up the sun nonetheless.


For the past day or so, Marlo has been sharing several photos from her own beach getaway, with many pics showing her rocking a basic-but-sexy scalloped white bikini. It’s no fringed number, a laPorsha Williams, but NeNe’s former pal still looks damn good! In the photo above, Marlo puts her killer abs on display and stays protected from those harmful UV rays, thanks to stylish sunglasses and a cute hat. And don’t think we can’t see that drink in your hand, girl!

While Marlo may longer be a part of the RHoA cast, we will get to see two new faces this season, as Demetria McKinney and Claudia Jordan have joined the cast and are currently vacationing with the ladies.
