If Kenya Moore had her way, Marlo Hampton would be a cast member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. On Friday, during a Twitter Q&A session with her followers, Kenya revealed how things are between her and NeNe Leakes’ former friend.
In response to a fan who asked her how she and Marlo are doing, Kenya replied that they’re “cool” and that she believes Marlo should be an Atlanta housewife.
Marlo appeared on the show quite a bit in previous seasons as NeNe’s good friend. Marlo even appeared on the season four reunion show, where she called Kim Zolciak a “wh**e” who “ruined a happy home” and said that her husband, professional footballer player Kroy Biermann, doesn’t have any real money. Even NeNe looked uncomfortable and shocked by Marlo’s attack. Marlo also appeared on NeNe’s wedding spin-off show and was in her second wedding to Gregg Leakes.
The friendship between NeNe Leakes and Marlo Hampton has since deteriorated. In an interview with Essence in March 2014, NeNe said that she would never be friends with Marlo again. NeNe didn’t reveal exactly what happened between them but did say that Kenya was not the cause of the friendship’s demise. NeNe also said that no one person on the show, and not even Andy Cohen, wanted Marlo around but NeNe convinced them to let her film.
“I supported her when nobody supported her. As in, not one housewife wanted her around. Not Kandi, not Sherée, not Kim Zolciak, not Cynthia, not Phaedra, Andy Cohen, Bravo, or True Entertainment. In fact, Bravo said she was not their brand…I called Bravo; I called True Entertainment trying to ask them to let her be on the show. And all I can say is what you see on the show is not what happened to Marlo and me… She knows, I know, Cynthia Bailey knows what happened between me and Marlo is way deeper…I do wish her the best, but I will never be friends with her again.”
Kenya also said during her Twitter Q&A that she’s ready to face off against the other women at the upcoming The Real Housewives of Atlanta season seven reunion show. One person she’ll likely argue with is Phaedra Parks. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Phaedra recently said that Kenya’s behavior on a recent episode “corroborate the affair between her and Apollo.”
On the season six reunion show, Kenya Moore was physically attacked by Porsha Williams after yelling through a bullhorn that she wasn’t faithful during her marriage to Kordell Stewart. As the two stood up and yelled at each other, Porsha actually grabbed Kenya by her hair and dragged her down to and across the stage. After that experience, Kenya’s likely hoping that no one touches her on this reunion.
