Marlo Hampton Says Bravo Hasn’t Made Her A “Housewife” Because She’s Not Married… Even Though Kenya Moore Is Pretty Single, Too
Earlier this week Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes revealed that working with her so-called pal Marlo Hampton on the set of her wedding spin-off, I Dream of NeNe, was a total nightmare.
“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, NeNe said.
Though NeNe is known for keeping it real, her comments were a little surprising because she and Marlo seemed like they had such a great relationship. During an interview with Radar Online, Marlo responded to her co-star’s claims, insisting that her unattractive business sense is not what’s keeping Bravo from making her a full-time housewife— it’s her marital status.
“Everyone loves my personality. The producers love me. Which producer wouldn’t love me? It would be a fool not to, right? It just would be friend of the housewives, [but] I always just say a cast member because I’m on it. I’m being called to tape… so I would definitely say I’m a cast member with Bravo,” Marlo said.
“I have no husband, so I can’t even be a full-time housewife. There’s nothing normal about me — I love being extra and I own it. That’s part of Marlo. Me being normal, you wouldn’t see me every week being on the show and I’m sure she wouldn’t have asked me to be in her wedding if I wasn’t extra,” she continued.
Honestly, her explanation would make tons of sense if it weren’t for one thing. Kenya Moore is a full-time housewife and she’s as single as it gets. I mean, I’m definitely not implying that NeNe’s claims are accurate about why Bravo hasn’t hired Marlo full-time, but it doesn’t appear that singleness is the reason either.
