The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Who Was Marlo Hampton’s Sugar Daddy?

February 01, 2012 12:39 PM by Martha Zaborowski

Real Housewives of Atlanta fans know that “friend of the Housewives,” Marlo Hampton, had an 80-year-old, billionaire, white, sugar daddy in Atlanta. Such a specific profile really narrows the options. So who was Marlo’s big poppa?

According to a source for Jacky Jasper, of Diary of a Hollywood Street King, Marlo’s big poppa was none another than Ted Turner! The source says: “Ted Turner was Marlo’s sugar daddy. My understanding is that Marlo is one of the reasons why Jane Fonda divorced Ted Turner. Ted Turner is the ‘sponsor’ who financed the The Red Carpet Boutique Marlo had at the Perimeter mall in ATL. Marlo knows how to get money, she’s a true hustler.”

It doesn’t seem incredibly far-fetched that Marlo was Ted Turner’s mistress. He is close to 80 (74-years-old, specifically), white, and one of the few billionaires in the country (and the only Atlanta billionaire I know).  No comment from Ted Turner or Marlo Hampton on this rumor.

Marlo has been in the press a lot lately. It was revealed that she has been arrested seven times (once, many years ago, for slashing a woman’s face who has recently committed suicide) and for yelling “f****t” word on a recent episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and consequently apologizing on her blog for it.

What do you think or Marlo Hampton? Do you like her on Bravo? Does her past taint your association of her now?

    Ghetto! These people should not be allowed on t.v. They set black folk back 100 years. It’s a minstrel show. It’s like Bravo is telling the world that it doesn’t matter how much money they have the ignorance is ingrained.

    Marlo does not need to be on Atl Housewives. No class. Bad influence. Broke up a marriage. NeNe needs to watch out. She is trying to make it in Hollywood. Watch the people you run around with.

    Sherrai is a big hater and just thinks she is all that and she isn’t her and Kandi are big haters,Kandi does not like Marlo because she is just jealous of Marlo I think Marlo should be on the show permanently. I am happy for Kim that she has found love hope it works out. Nene is my favorite girl.I love Phedra she has style and class happy she is not allowing herself to get into those squabbles very embarrasing. Love Cynthia and Peter hope she does not allow her family to come between them both her sister is very jealouse of her. Very entertaining show.
