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!
