The Real Housewives Of Atlanta’s Marlo Hampton’s Criminal Past

February 26, 2014 02:30 PM by Suzy Kerr


Looks like “Bailey Bowl” wasn’t the first venue for a fight involving Kenya Moore’s pal, Marlo Hampton. Marlo, who appeared on Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, showed her nasty side at Cynthia Bailey’s party, and now we’ve got the scoop on her criminal record – as well as a clearer understanding of why NeNeLeakes wants nothing to do with her.

Sunday night, Real Housewives of Atlanta fans flocked to Twitter to discuss how one of the show’s veteran stars, NeNe Leakes, got thisclose to throwing down with her old pal Marlo Hampton. Marlo, who attended Cynthia Bailey’s “Bailey Bowl” as a guest of Kenya Moore used to be BFFs with NeNe Leakes, but the two had a major falling out and obviously FRIGGIN HATE EACH OTHER now.

After Marlo taunted NeNe, invaded her personal space and THEN threw a water bottle at her, NeNe had had enough. But instead of engaging in a full-on battle with Marlo, she decided instead to walk away and avoid what might have been a very nasty altercation.It was probably a wise decision, too, as we now know that Marlo is capable of serious physical harm.

RadarOnline obtained the arrest records – all 7 of them – for Marlo Hampton, and let’s just say girlfriend does not play when it comes to “protecting” herself. As NeNe posted in her Bravo blog this week, Marlo’s first arrest stemmed from an attack where she “slashed a friend’s face with a knife and disfigured her over a man.” Um, can you say crazy town, Facebook friends?

However, after the news got out, Marlo took to the interwebs to defend herself. “I am shocked and saddened to hear of the recent distortions of events and false accusations disseminated over an altercation I was involved in over a dozen years ago…” she said.“I was in my early twenties, and what took place started out as an argument with someone who was once my friend, over the phone. As disturbing as the carrying of a weapon may seem, it was quite common in the environment in which I was raised, and not only I, but also the person involved in the altercation, had each brought weapons to protect ourselves. There was a confrontation, her knife dropped, mine did not.”Whatever.Still crazy.

That also doesn’t explain the six other arrests that happened after the knife incident, and so far Marlo hasn’t tried to justify those. All I gotta say is, thank goodness for NeNe’s face that Marlo only had a water bottle handy at the Bailey Bowl.

So what do you think about Marlo Hampton’s lengthy arrest record? Do you think NeNe made a smart move in walking away? Tell us in the comments!

    I think Nene knows who to mess with and who not to. And it doesn’t necessarily mean that she kept walking because her son was there. Brent has seen Nene act a fool many times on T.V. and I’m sure in person also. I think that Nene was scared to deal with Marlo because she knows that Marlo can go toe to toe with her, vocally and physically. When has anybody ever seen Nene say nothing when someone is
    is taunting her and talking mess to her..son or no son. She was scared of what Marlo was capable of doing to her. She finally met her match.

    Marlo should be taken off the show completely. NeNe has grown in so many ways and I feel that she did the right thing by walking away and it doesn’t matter if she was afraid of Marlo or not. She walked away like a lady should have. Marlo needs to go and Kenya’s fake butt injections make me sick.

    Kenya is Fake and Marlo should have known better than to get involved with her. I don’t blame NeNe for not wanting to associate with the two of them. When will someone reveal the butt injections on Kenya. Kenya is very ugly and her voice makes me shiver. Nothing about Kenya is real. She loves to stirr up drama and then run away. She is so very jealous of NeNe.

    Well said ‘Shining Star’. . . NeNe was scared because only God knows what a ‘bridemaid’ is capable of- – especially one with a rap sheet as long as Marlo’s.

    Someone needs to slap NeNe back to reality, she thinks WAY more highly of herself than she ought. Contrary to popular belief, the masses do not tune into the show to see her and what her over-exaggerated-in-her-mind acting career is NOT doing. Conversely, I would like to ask Greg: “Are you checking for polyps while you are up there” The emasculation seems to get progressively worse with each episode.

    Once RHOA is over, Nene will still be as irrelevant (as Phaedra put it on season one’s reunion) as she was prior to the start of the show except she will have bad dental work, bad weaves and bad plastic surgery as a reminder of her 15 minutes of fame! For longevity’s sake, she may want to take some grammar classes. BLONK!!

    Marlo goes after rich white men for the obvious reason. I would knock her off my friendship list just as NeNe did. Get Marlo and shady Kenya off show – fast.
