Marlo Hampton may think she deserves a full-time spot on the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ but one person who doesn’t is her own friend Nene Leakes.
Full story below…
The RHOA original – whose messy split from the show is well-documented – sat down for a candid chat with Hollywood Unlocked and didn’t hold back when it came to key topics – including Marlo.
Many will recall the fashionista joining the series as a “Friend Of” Nene and eventually the wider group. The latter being a role she still occupies.
When asked whether it’s overdue for Marlo to receive a peach (aka a full-time role), Nene flat out replied: “No, I disagree.”
She went on to add:
“The reason I disagree is because if you’ve been doing something for so long (being in a supporting role), I don’t see the network giving you a peach. I just don’t.
I’m just speaking from my eyes and the way I view the network and the way television works. You have given them everything for this amount of pay, why do they need to give you a peach? For what?
What’s gonna change? They getting everything they need right now. What are they gonna get when they get a peach? All they gonna get is a photo of you holding a peach. What is actually going to change? “
When host Jason Lee suggested that perhaps we’d see Marlo dating and more about her family, Nene doubled down on her stance replying:
“If they wanted to see it, they can see it now. And she would show it – and they know that. They actually have shown it. They show you her personal stuff. She has two nephews and they’ve shown her two nephews. That’s it.”
Granted Nene made a few points, who needs enemies when they have friends like this.
