It’s no secret that NeNe Leakes has had trouble getting along with the other housewives this season (with the exception of Cynthia Bailey) so it’s understandable that she had reservations about heading to South Africa with the gals.

However, the always resourceful NeNe saw an opportunity to bring along an extra friend, and took it upon herself to invite pseudo-housewife Marlo Hampton on the vacay.

Normally we wouldn’t think much of NeNe’s choice to invite a friend along (she brought her BFF, Diana, to Miami last season) but NeNe purposely chose not to tell the other ladies — again, with the exception of Cynthia — that Marlo would be joining them on their African getaway.

Was it fair for NeNe to invite Marlo along without telling the other housewives?
