If there’s one thing for sure, Marlo Hampton is going to make an entrance. We first got wind of our girl in season four of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reality show when she came bustling in with drama and the killer fashions to match. Not much has changed ten seasons later, except that she now wields her own peach as a full-time cast member. Of course, this promotion is fantastic news for franchise fans, but the OG viewers know that Hampton earned this moment a long time ago.
Whether it was passionately defending her source of income or fixing her castmate’s hair mid-argument, this diva has always brought the heat. So much so that we’ve compiled a list of the many times that she’s more than proved she’s deserving of joining the full-time ranks alongside veterans like Kandi Burruss and Kenya Moore. Check out our list of eight moments where Marlo proved she’s a force to be reckoned with on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
1. Marlo vs. Sheree Whitfield
How would you react if you were on a trip with a divided group of friends and weren’t invited to an outing? Like Miss Hampton, you will let the coordinator know precisely how you feel in an explosive argument. Sheree Whitfield, the coordinator in question, got a mouthful from the Florida native for not inviting her out, and we’re still talking about it years later.
2. Marlo vs. Kandi Burruss
We still don’t know how Marlo gets her money, but we’ve learned from her previous spat with Kandi Burruss, not to ask. When questioned about the source of her financial gains, Marlo quickly threw shade the singer’s way, which led to an argument.
3. Marlo vs. Kenya Moore
What was supposed to be a lovely night in the wilderness turned into a battle of the queens as Marlo let Kenya Moore know exactly how she was feeling. The cause of the spirited discussion? Kenya didn’t invite Marlo to her housewarming party, which rubbed her the wrong way.
4. Marlo vs. Porsha Williams
What is it with group outings and reality television shows? When Marlo urged Porsha to confront Kim Zolciak-Biermann about an incident involving Nene Leakes, it went completely left. The shouting match erupted like a volcano and overshadowed the entire dinner.
5. Marlo vs. Eva Marcille
If you wear Birkenstocks, you might want to exit stage left, considering Marlo’s shading of Eva‘s preference for them launched a full-on war. While on a cast trip to Japan, these two beauties duked it out in a way that can only be described as catastrophic.
6. Marlo vs. Nene Leakes
Can’t we all just get along? In what seems like the twilight zone, Marlo and OG castmate Nene Leakes had a bit of tension that escalated quickly. The most shocking part of the entire clip is that Marlo and Kenya seemed to be, dare I say, friends? The tea of it all!
7. Marlo's love of family
A lot can be said about Marlo and what we adore the most is her love for her family, especially her nephews. It’s a beautiful sight to see her loving them and giving them the affection that they deserve. Can she be our ‘munty’?
8. Marlo's fashion sense
Marlo is one of the best-dressed housewives in the history of the franchise, and we love to see it. Anyone who can effortlessly throw verbal jabs in haute couture deserves a spot in the housewife hall of fame. Period!
Whether you love or hate her, Marlo is the moment and has been for quite some time. We’re so proud of her for finally getting that peach, and we can’t wait to see what this season holds. We’re expecting a whole lot of fabulousness, a little bit of shade and a few laughs in between. Congratulations, Marlo!
