As the only original member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta still in the cast, NeNe Leakes is kind of a H’wives expert. So, which lady does NeNe consider to be a perfect Housewife? Her answer may shock you!

According to NeNe, that high honor belongs to Marlo Hampton — her bestie and a brief RHoA cast member. During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live last week, NeNe revealed that her relationship with Marlo hasn’t suffered, even though the controversial gal is no longer a permanent part of the cast.

And she also let it slip that Marlo will be making an appearance toward the end of the season!

“Marlo will be on the show; she’s going to show up at an event. She’s just as fabulous as she was last season,” NeNe dished. “I hope that she’s back next season … I think Marlo is a perfect Housewife, I really do.”

Whoa. That’s high praise coming from Ms. NeNe Leakes!
