EXCLUSIVE: ‘RHOA’ Inside The Fallout of Kenya Moore & Marlo Hampton’s Friendship!

Posted on Jan 5 2017 - 12:16pm by Dani-K

Kenya Moore was on the inaugural Watch What Happens Live show recently which displayed Andy Cohen’s newly designed clubhouse. During the show we learned that Kenya and Marlo Hampton are currently “butting heads.” Further into the season, Marlo makes an appearance on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but apparently Kenya and Marlo aren’t friends anymore.

During the after-show portion of WWHL, Marlo sent Andy a tweet clearly meant to embarrass Kenya. “Can you ask Kenya if her butt is real because everyone keep saying it’s botched I would like to know the truth?”

After Andy read the tweet, Kenya’s response was classic Mariah Carey, “I don’t know who that is. I really don’t know who that is.” And when Andy expressed his surprise that the two weren’t getting along, once again, Kenya played coy. “I don’t know her.” Press play to watch the clip below.

Marlo was not going to let the alleged botched bootie question go and tweeted the following message. “You know how that goes that Fried word on this show (emoji) I want to know for real though friend or not.”

Marlo has had up-and-down friendships with not only Kenya, but NeNe Leakes as well. In a December 2015 appearance on WWHL, NeNe also pretended not to know who Marlo was either.

The dismantling of the friendship began months ago — a source spilled the tea to AllAboutTheTea.com. Apparently, later in the season, the ladies go on a cast trip and Sheree Whitfield invites Marlo — which creates major tension between Kenya and MarloMarlo took Sheree’s side in Chateau Sheree versus Moore Manor feud — and things come to a head between the ladies on that cast trip. Adding fuel to the fire, Marlo threw Twitter shade at Kenya over her relationship with Matt Jordan, “I don’t understand how a woman can’t keep a man longer than a season.” Marlo tweeted.

Who’s looking forward to Marlo Hampton’s appearance on RHOA? Sound off in the comments — tell us what you think.

  • Missyrocks

    Love Marlo.

  • Damn…Damn…Damn!!! I like both Marlo and Kenya. Why do these two have to fight.

    • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

      Very similar to the Kenya/Vivica situation (on CA) … I guess it’s just the (ratchet) reality TV way; never can there be room for TWO beautiful women of color at the same time. Kenya doesn’t strike me as a girl’s girl in any way, shape, or form.

  • The Champ

    Now I’ve always loved me some Marlo, ever since she stepped foot on rhoa. But, it seems to me she has a pattern of latching onto anyone who can get her the most camera time at the moment. I guess she’s figured she had a better chance fighting with Kenya than befriending her. One thing is for sure, she will always be Peachless in Atlanta. 🍑🍑🍑🍑

  • Bryan

    I heard she was in Prison?

  • Sugar in my tank

    I am luke warm on Marlo..she’s coming off like an opportunist because I enjoyed her energy but she’s messy..Marlo called Kandi a sugar momma, fell out with Nene, had issue with Sheree and now Kenya next…

    • The Champ

      Hey Sugar 🙋 Call a spade a spade.

    • ScrappieONE

      Let’s not forget Marlo also cut a woman in the face with a blade or knife and left a horrible scar. The lady later ended up committing suicide. I”m sorry but this woman is disgusting.

      • Sugar in my tank

        Wow, didn’t know that one..

        • ScrappieONE

          Yup you can google it but let me warn you you’ll need time to flip through all her mugshots.

          • Sugar in my tank

            I knew she was a thief but she’s violent too? I see why they didn’t give her a peach, she would probably appreciate holding a bullet better..

      • GetReal2014

        Wow, I had heard that but hadn’t read it for myself. That’s horrible.

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        Amen. This is why I never could understanding why everyone was so in love with the face slasher, just because she was going after Nene.
        Kenya was her biggest supporter. What does that say about her character?!? The company you keep…

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    One of the funniest scenes ever is when Sheree and Marlo got into a fight on a cast trip (might have been Africa) and they were both speaking in tongues.

    • the underground train

      Yes it was in South Africa. All you could make out was Marlo shouting “One Rolex!”

      • wellWellwell

        LOL! What did she mean by that? Did Sheree swipe her Rolex..I never understood what was going on with those two.

        • the underground train

          They started arguing because Sheree was going to a party but only inviting Kandi and Phaedra. Marlo was offended and called Sheree broke. Sheree retaliated by saying Marlo sleeps with rich old white men for money. Then Marlo was like you need a rich man. You want his number? Or something like that. And Sheree was like I don’t need a man to buy me things. Marlo retorts something like why are you always returning things to the store? Sheree is like I can afford my stuff. I got a Rolex and shoved her watch in Marlo’s face. Then Marlo is like “one rolex!? Is that all you got?! One Rolex?!”

          • Sandy Wood

            Your memory is phenomenal tut, I didn’t see the episode but am laughing my head off as if I had been right there. Thanks for sending me off to bed laughing.

          • wellWellwell

            Lmao, thanks underground, I remember that now. Omg the things they fight about. I do love when Sheree throws shade, she cracks me up.

  • the underground train

    I don’t find Marlo that attractive but she is always put together or on fleek. Best dressed, best hair, best make up.

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      Marlo certainly looks better than Wesley Snipes in a wig… oh wait… that’s Kenya. LMAO!!

  • Sunflower

    Before I respond to this hot Tea… I am going to search for Marlo’s 42 MUG SHOTS and related charges.
    Will see if she was best dressed, best hair, best make-up… all-in-all best put together on the MUGS!!

    • the underground train

      Porsha looked great on her mugshot.

      • Sunflower

        We are living in an Era… where we are talking about women looking great in MUG SHOTS.

        Thank God for the REGAL IMAGE of President Obama’s wife, Michelle Obama.
        She is the best example of Brains, Beauty and steadfast Grace.
        AMEN… to ALL OF THAT!!!

        • GetReal2014

          Girlllll.

          Not something I would be thinking about. I hope I never have a mugshot in my life.

          • Sunflower

            Me neither ….

          • GetReal2014

            🙂

        • the underground train

          You started that conversation.

        • Lynne

          I don’t know any First Ladies that have mug shots. But Hillary Clinton may break that barrier!

          • Sunflower

            I believe Tr.ump is more in line to get a mugshot… if he keeps messing with Rus.sia.
            “Poverte Mne” = Believe me… in Russian!

          • Lynne

            Well, perhaps Hillary can give him some pointers on how to get away with it. :))

          • Sunflower

            He has the Russians for that…

  • classycns

    So Marlo turned on Kenya the for the same reason the landord did. Because they wanted to film and be apart of the show via Kenya. Look anyone can get you an interview put they CANNOT make the boss hire you. I had a similar problem with an acquaintance. Got her the interview but she was pissed at me for not getting her hired. LOL.

    • GetReal2014

      So glad someone else knows the landlord story.

  • Gingertee

    Considering that Kenya acted like a 1st class rat whenever they hung together, I have no sympathy for Kenya and Marlo is being who she always is

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      Precisely.

  • Sunflower

    Kenya could never conform a Jailhouse Rat like Marlo… “she is indeed who she is – another poster below this thread pointed that out”…!
    From what I remember Kenya tried very hard to mend the fences between Marlo and Nene when they had a fallout… to no avail.
    Marlo cried like a baby… chasing Nene around.
    Thank Heavens Kenya was around back then… to lend a shoulder for Marlo to cry on.
    Kenya mark my words… “You live and You learn”.

    • GetReal2014

      Kenya’s always trying to help those folks mend fences, but most times it’s not in the cards. She needs to realize that it’s how they operate; drama, backbiting, lying, etc. If you don’t roll like you’re not going to fit in. This is where Kenya can take a page from Cynthia’s book, be friendly with all, but friends with no one.

      Cynthia was friends with Nene, but no one else.

      • Sunflower

        I never warmed up to Marlo.

        • GetReal2014

          Me either. I thought she was extremely childish. Now I did laugh when she was chasing Nene. That was hilarious. Nene waited until the coast was clear and threw an empty water bottle. I LOLed for a long time over that one, but Marlo is just too high school and she’s too old for that kind of behavior.

          • Sunflower

            Oh yeah… Nene was stepping it out of there …. dragging Gregg along!
            Oohh… and Marlo’s crying face… not funny!
            LOL

          • GetReal2014

            Bobbi mentioned Marlo crying too. I don’t remember that part at all. But, why do these women want to be Nene’s friend so much? I don’t get it. She’s as mean as a junkyard dog. IDGI.

          • Sunflower

            They are chasing their 15 minutes of fame.
            After all… Nene did coin “the thirst is real”!!

          • GetReal2014

            You never know with her. She takes a lot of people’s sayings as her own, but if she did actually do it, that one was funny.

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      Kenya tried to mend fences between Nene & Marlo?!? Never happened.
      Kenya tried to exasperated the tension between them. Even Steven Wonder could see that. Dust Mop is the one that kept trying to say that Nene was no longer Marlo’s friend because they had become close & it never had anything to do with her.
      Now, Marlo is going to expose Kenya for all the shyt she said about every last one of them. I bet Kenya won’t try pulling Marlo’s chair from under her. She’s not that stupid.

      • Sunflower

        I am no Steven Wonder so I did see that Kenya was trying.
        Remember at that time Nene was walking around with her “I’mma Rich Bitch” BLINDERS and nobody was good enough to be her friend.
        Kenya is still standing and both Nene and Marlo are gone… Not Heard Of…!!

        Note.. Who is that FAMOUS Dust Mop you are talking about…??
        LOL…

        • BetteDavisEyez1

          Would you please give an example of when Kenya aka Dust Mop was trying to mend fences?!? Thanks in advance.

          • Sunflower

            We need to ask Nene why she was walking away and couldn’t have a conversation with Marlo at Kenya’s request.

            See… Kandi has conversations… sitting down or on the phone… SPEAKS HER MIND….
            …. and then WALKS AWAY!!

            That’s exactly what you need to do if you signed up for Reality T.V. – Hash it out whether you’re right or wrong.

            Remember how Kandi left Phaedra sitting on her Soap Box…. and Phaedra speechless
            …. sipping away her poisonous drink..?
            That was EPIC.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            So why didn’t KM get the two together for tea?!?
            Nene didn’t ask Marlo to be on her team. Wanted nothing to do with Marlo, so Kenya takes Marlo over to Nene. That is trying to mend fences?!?
            Nene threw the water bottle & tried to hightail out of there. LOL!!
            Not once did KM try to resolve their issues. If anything, she tried to make it about herself.
            ETA: Yes Kandi’s move was EPIC… an EPIC FAIL. This is why Kandi has now admitted she was wrong for saying what she did. The backlash was swift & it was sharp. Not a lot of people agreed with what Kandi did to Phaedra.

          • Sunflower

            The audience to these shows are always divided.. just like the commenters on the boards.
            Kandi and Phaedra’s sit down was necessary.
            Backlash comes from the people who do not agree… the rest are quietly Sipping Their HOT TEA…. waiting for the next Episode!

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Now that we can both agree on.. sipping our tea with our pinky fingers up…😉☕️
            However, to paint a lying, shyt disturber as a peacemaker is a little more than I can stand.
            Whenever it’s something/someone against Nene, Phaedra or Porsha, anything goes. But if those same situations/people go against Kenya, then all bets are off. Do you not see a pattern here?!?

          • Sunflower

            Pinky fingers up, hot tea and Eclairs…
            Yummy…
            If there is no pattern… there is no snarking …. we don’t need “dead” blogs!

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            In that case… These loons are doing their jobs & no other franchise does it like the ATL. LOL!!

          • Sunflower

            Agreed…
            We have our own families to take care of and cannot dwell on these reality people.
            They remind me of “Snap Chat”…
            View… then move on!

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Never done snap chat… but I’m always down for a HW thread… LOL!!

          • classycns

            Well according to Marlo(if you believe her) Nene didn’t want Marlo to film with Kenya. Nene, Phaedra and Porsha formed a truce to refuse to film with Kenya in an effort to get Kenya fired. They tried to pull Cynthia and Kandi in but they both refused. Quiet as it’s keep this is another reason why Phaedra turned on Kandi. But that may be revealed at the reunion if Kandi is mad enough to spill the beans. So basically it was some high school mean girl “bs” all while trying to get the Star fired. Yes I said Star. LOL. If Kenya is gone then so will the haters. The haters even know that show would be boring without Kenya. Y’all will deal!

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            I am going to have to disagree. Nene tried to get Marlo hired as a HS but she is a liability. Bravo refused. During Nene’s wedding spinoff, one of her bridesmaids/bridemaid (LMAO)pointed out that Marlo is an opportunist.
            Nene & Marlo fallout. Kenya conveniently sidles up to Marlo. Nene wants nothing to do with her & Kenya tries to act as if it was because of her. Cynthia explained that it had nothing to do with Kenya but infact Marlo could not film with both Nene & Kenya. The lines were drawn.
            No one refused to film with Kenya. If they all had banned together, her non SL having ass would have been toast after her second season. Even Nene said that Kenya made good tv & CB is the one that should be fired.
            I don’t have a clue where you get your info but I’m just telling it as it was on the show.
            No one wanted anything to do with Marlo but Kenya gave her camera time just to get back at Nene. Now, it’s coming back to bite her in her square ass. That is what you call KARMA & im here for that. Bloop.

          • the underground train

            Oh yeah I remember that. Nene had the hour long one one special with Andy.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Thank you, TUT. I dont know what it is about this show that has people rewriting history, just to make their favorites out to always be right.
            That hag is going to regret the day she befriended Marlo. And I bet she won’t dare try any of her bullying antics that she has tried to pull with the others. LOL!!
            Marlo, miss check my charges would beat the brakes off of Miss Twirl.

          • classycns

            Well from what I remember Kenya didn’t side with Marlo, she in fact tried to get their friendship back on track. At this point Nene wanted nothing to do with either of them. If you believe Marlo, Nene told not, ask but told Marlo not to film with Kenya while on a 3-way call with Cynthia. Cynthia reluctantly confirmed that it was true. I had heard those rumors prior to Cynthia confirming and that is why they had to bring Claudia Jordan on the show to give Kenya someone to film with.

            Other franchises have done this as well. If you recall Bethenny tried to do this with LuAnn and Sonja with the Mexico trip and that’s why the trip was cancelled all together.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Cynthia said at the rerun that Nene told Marlo she could either film with her or with Kenya & she should stay over there because she cannot carry everybody.
            Cynthia then said their relationship (Nene’s & Marlo’s) relationship was already strained before Kenya came into the picture.
            I never once saw Kenya try to get them back on track. Quite the opposite. Kenya & Marlo sat around bad mouthing Nene everytime they were together.

          • classycns

            At this point Nene was pissed at Kenya and that is why she told Marlo not to film with Kenya if she wanted to continue a friendship and film with her. Marlo said that she was grown and no one was going to tell
            her whom should could film considering Marlo and Kenya were friends and Marlo still wanted a spot on the show. Marlo didn’t fall in line. Nene ended the friendship.

            Kenya tried to get Nene and Marlo to talk at Peter’s B-day party and at the Baily bowl.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            I am inclined to believe Cynthia’s version.

          • classycns

            Fair enough. LOL.

          • Bobbi

            Preach, preacher! You said it all and this is why Marlo is now mad with Kenya – because Kenya has made amends and is hanging out again with Nene. She sees that as betrayal. Probably too, because she hears Kenya saying she wants Nene back on the show and Marlo thinks Kenya should do HER that favor.
            The plan to get Kenya fired was as plain as day. When Apollo switched it up on the ratchets they started the infamous; “he lied about the lie” and Kandi laughed in their faces. It’s how Kandi ended up on “team pretty” by default. Phaedra put Kandi down the minute she apologized to Kenya and Nene was all too happy to rub it in Kandi’s face. It didn’t help that Kandi sympathized with Apollo over the kids situation. The Apollo bs in her garage was a distraction. Add Kandi getting close to Shamea and that was the last straw.

            Hail yeah, Kenya is the star. Kenya incurred some bruises along the way but she played her cards just right and now these tricks are imploding. All their dirt is coming to a head and Kenya has a front row seat to watch them scratch each other’s eyes out.

          • Sunflower

            Oooooohhhh….
            Forgot about the filming boycott!
            See… my girl Kenya tried to help the underdog!!
            Kenya should be singing the “Star Spangle Banner” every day… 24/7… being rid of Marlo..!!

          • Bobbi

            Lmao @ poisonous drink. All truth here. Say what you want about Kandi she doesn’t run. She’s going to face the music head on. Nene has never been able to face the music because she has always been as wrong as two left shoes. If she doesn’t face it, she’ll never have to admit it. It’s why she talks over everyone all the time.

            The fact that Kenya is still standing and these two jailbirds are on the outside looking in says everything. Treachery is self ensnaring and its thevreason they take 2 steps back for every accomplishment. It is hilarious that anyone would think Kenya needs to be afraid of Nene finding out what she has said about her with all that Nene has said and done to her. Kenya has never been afraid to tell Nene exactly how she feels. She did it at the last reunion even though they had made up.

            Marlo has no credible reason to be mad at Kenya. I believe she’s upset because Kenya has forgiven Nene and is rekindling a friendship that had begun when she first came on the show before Nene became paranoid about Kenya coming for her “queen” title. Marlo may see that rekindling as a betrayal since Nene stopped speaking to Marlo over Kenya. Kenya would do well to leave them both alone. She bonded with thise ladies because like her, they have both been hurt by their mothers. Kenya has stray kitten syndrome but she can’t help these damaged women. They are dangerous because they have a “hurt you before you hurt me” mentality. The second they perceive they will be hurt they try to ruin you. Kenya needs to step off of that crazy train.

          • Sunflower

            Read your post 4 times.
            You have described their mentality to a T.
            If Kenya did not join RHOA… she would have NEVER met these people in real life.

            Gosh.. I love your post!

          • Bobbi

            Thanks Sunflower, you’re right. If not for this show Kenya would never have crossed paths with these ne’er do wells.
            Nene has always wanted to be Kenya’s friend even though she walks around playing big Willy. She admitted as much last season. Her ego and low self esteem are double edged swords. It’s why she so easily turns on the people she admires and aspires to be. Good, beautiful girls like Kenya and Cynthia validate Nene and serve as beautiful window dressings for her otherwise shabby interior. Exterior too. Nene is an opportunist and a dangerous “friend” to have.

          • Sunflower

            See… you could put together a TV SERIES with snippets of all the scenes from Season ONE to date… of the rifts leading up to the breakdown of these relationships.

            You also have great insight into their mannerisms, character flaws, deceit and destructive behavior.
            It would be great viewing pleasure.
            Commenters like myself have forgotten about a lot throughout the years.
            Oh… how excited we were to watch the first Episode.

  • GetReal2014

    I guess I’m going to be out here on my own. I can’t stand Marlo. And when her and Sheree got into that argument I started to really despise her. First of all, Sheree is a grown woman and she can invite anyone to any place that she chooses. I thought Marlo was being childish, and when they started speaking in tongues I wanted to kick both of their behinds.

    How are you going to get mad because you weren’t invited somewhere? Girl, sit down with that elementary school BS.

    And it must be me because I don’t think she’s on fleek, is beautiful, or has any pizazz at all. She’s looks like a regular hood girl to me. I see nothing there. At all.

    • Sunflower

      Nothing-at-all…

      • GetReal2014

        🙂

    • the underground train

      And was caught lying red handed. Remember she said the “f” word on their trip? When they got back to Atlanta when confronted by Sheree and Miss Lawrence she lied through her teeth. Smdh. I kept thinking to myself she does realize she was caught on camera saying that.

      • GetReal2014

        You have quite a memory. I saw a post of yours and you recalled an incident exactly the way it happened. That’s amazing. I have no recollection of this event at all.

        • the underground train

          I am actually ashamed of how much I remember, lol. Yet things like this sticks in my mind because I thinking at the time how can you outright lie like that. Besides the violent criminal history I think that was another reason why she was never cast as a housewife. Andy held her feet to the fire for that comment during her brief appearance on the following reunion.

          • GetReal2014

            Never! I wish my memory was that good. When I was younger my teacher used to say “If your head wasn’t attached, you’d lose it.” I thought that was so stupid, but as I got older I realized it was true.

            Some things I remember verbatim, but I can also forget something said ten minutes ago. I would love having that memory retention like that.

      • Sunflower

        Heard Ms. Lawrence is currently part of a TV Series or a Movie…. not sure which!
        See… good people move on and are blessed by the Heavens!!
        Go Ms. Lawrence….

        • the underground train

          Yes Lee Daniel’s Star. Haven’t watched it yet. But I am happy for Lawrence. I remember when she was recording a song on the show. It would have been better for Kandi to work with her than wig and cig.

          • Sunflower

            Thanks for Info.
            We both have to check out the rerun..
            Happy for Lawrence.
            I would have loved to see him as a judge on a show like American Top Models.
            Hopefully this new role could be a break-out into a real singing career or steady acting gigs..!!

      • Bobbi

        Yeah, itv was bad enough she has a voilent crime in her history….she sealed her fate with Andy for sure with that comment.

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    This is exactly the definition of KARMA. Dust Mop sidled up to Marlo to get under Nene’s skin & now it’s coming back to bite her in her square ass.
    Whatever happened to “Marlo’s a good girl & we all have a past!!”?!? We all watched Kenya & Marlo key keying about Sheree & Nene. Everyone was cheering the face slasher. Now that Kenya & Marlo are on the outs, she is public enemy #1. GTFOOH

    The best part of this story is that Kenya doesn’t give a chit. lol. Marlo is pissed that Kenya and Nene are hanging out and mad that Kenya voiced her opinion that they should let that snake oil dr back on the show. Marlo is spitting fire and Kenya is throwing dust in that street walkers mouth. This trick has been trying to get on the show for what- 6 seasons now? Is she slow or what? Bravo said no go hoe.. Stand down!
    Kenya needs to leave both of those damaged jailbirds alone.

    Marlo is an attention seeker, desperate for fame or a spot on the show. No one likes her

    I thought Marlo was back in prison?
