Marlo Hampton is one of the most controversial figures in Real Atlanta Housewives. The reality star has been fueling the drama for years but has never received a catch as an official housewife. After Nene Leakes has declared that Eva Marcille should be removed from the Bravo cast, Hampton is mixed about whether she will take her place.
What did Nene Leakes say?
Atlanta’s “tastiest peach” doesn’t hold back its opinions on its co-stars. In a recent interview, she said that she would scare Marcille from RHOA because it didn’t add anything to the show.
“We have a big cast right now, except for one person, I think,” Leakes told Entertainment Tonight. “I think that one person in this cast does not seem to have carried any weight this season. And I think it’s very obvious who that person is, and I don’t think they’re really good at casting. “
Leakes believes the former model has “not carried any weight this season.” She missed an epic trip to Greece because she was pregnant and was only seen by a FaceTime video call.
“I don’t feel like Eva brings that much to the cast,” added Leakes. “I’m just being honest. It’s really like, when you watch a show like, everyone – like the whole cast – is absent, and you don’t miss the person at all, it’s kind of like, we didn’t even know you were here, you know? And the whole season, doing a lot of FaceTime scenes, it’s been the last two seasons … So if I had to change, I would change it. “
Marlo Hampton would she like to be promoted?
Leakes also suggested that it was time for Hampton to get a fishery and be promoted full-time instead of just being a friend. When asked if she would like the idea of becoming an official housewife, she replied that she would, but not if it posed difficulties for Marcille.
“Look, I don’t like that someone doesn’t have a job but, I’m not going to lie, I would like to take their position,” Hampton told Entertainment Tonight. “I certainly would – my fans would be so excited, they would love it. But I don’t want Eva to lose her job. I don’t want her to be in financial trouble again and I’m glad she has her job. “
Hampton reiterated what Leakes said about Marcille and even said that she was actually a backstage diva.
“But, yes, NeNe really does feel that way,” she added. “She just feels like she doesn’t bring it like the rest of us. Eva is no longer a diva with the producers. Like in “I’m doing this …” or “I’m not doing this …” or, “No” She’s just … it’s like, girl, it’s not L.A. it’s ATL, you know? We have a little hood in us, a little. We bring it. “
Season 13 of RHOA was supposed to start filming soon, but with the coronavirus pandemic, which was postponed. Even the reunion of season 12 has been postponed and it could be a video call this year.
Real Atlanta Housewives broadcast on Sunday evening at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
