“I told her about her first Birkin,” Marlo Hampton tells Atlanta radio V103. “She asked me what diamond studs were, I told her to get diamonds studs.”
In her full interview, Marlo dishes on why she wasn’t invited to Kandi Burruss’ wedding and why she is so thirsty for screen time on ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’.
V103: When did you feel like it started to go left with Nene?
Uh, at the wedding. Three days before her wedding, when I walked in…you know I’m always dressed to the nines; it’s just something I do. The other young ladies had on sweats and I just felt tension from the other bridesmaids. And I’m like ‘What’s going on? The energy isn’t right.’ I went to go check in and I upgraded my room to a suite so one of the girls went and told that… So I was up in my room getting comfortable, I’m just sitting there for hours, didn’t get a phone call so I text Nene, ‘Hey, I’m here, I checked in…’ [then] some of the producers came in and said ‘Oh, the girls are over at Del Friscos eating.’ I’m like ‘huh?!?! No one called me’ So I was like Okay, I knew something was up then.
V103: Why do you want to do that show?
Why not Ryan? It’s a job. It’s a legal job, I don’t have any children, and it’s a great platform. I mean, why I wouldn’t do it? I’m not married, I don’t have any kids I have to worry about going to school and being picked at or breaking up my happy home, it’s just me. I mean I’m doing great. I’m getting appearance 2 to 3 times a month, I’m getting speaking engagements, and it’s just great.
V103: Did you teach (Nene) her how to dress?
I mean I feel that I definitely did influence her fashion. I definitely know I told her about her first Birkin. She asked me what diamond studs were, I told her to get diamonds studs. Well, she didn’t know when I first met her, you know Nene always wear big earrings.
V103: So she asked you what diamond studs were?
Mhm, one day when she saw me at taping she was like “What are those things?” I was like uh, omg diamonds. Something you need to get, something a rich b*tch needs. I’m just saying…and she has them, they’re beautiful now, and I love her ring.
V103: If the RHOA ship was starting to sink…and you could only save one person, who would you save?
It would be Kenya..Kenya and Nene would be tied, they’re both great for TV. Nene is a fool to me because if she was smart, I would be like ‘Marlo, Kenya, let’s make a show.’ Like you too emotional and in your feelings about me boo, you making people think we done dated or something it ain’t that serious. I’m saying, ‘What are you mad about? What is wrong with you girl?’ You need to be getting a production team and say Marlo and Kenya come on my team and stop hating and say we all good TV.
