‘I Could See Why She Was Not A Housewife:’ NeNe Leakes Says Working With Marlo Hampton Was ‘Super Difficult’
When it was first announced that Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes would be starring in her very own wedding spin-off show and a crew of her fellow reality star gal pals would be standing in as her bridesmaids, we knew that drama would be inevitable. During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Glee star dished on some of the difficulties she experienced with her bridesmaids and had a few things to say about her homegirl Marlo Hampton.
“The most difficult people were Marlo Hampton and Diana Gowins. When I say difficult, it was unbelievable that they could not step outside of themselves and say that this is a wedding for NeNe, our friend, and let’s just be here to support her. They argued most of the time, they were never really satisfied. They were very difficult in different ways.”
She went on to say that working with Marlo offered her a lot of insight into the thoughts of RHOA producers and why they never made Marlo an actual housewife.
“After working with Marlo on the show, I could see why she was not a housewife, because she’s super difficult. She’s super extra. When Marlo and I worked on Real Housewives, she was just appearing here and there. When we worked on I Dream of Nene, I could see her business sense, and it just wasn’t attractive.”
Ouch! And they’re supposed to friends. But maybe it’s true what they say about mixing business with pleasure— even if it is for a wedding special.
