Damn! Marlo Hampton Gets Dragged on Twitter Over Vicious Attack On Kenya Moore’s Childhood Abandonment

Posted on Feb 13 2017 - 9:48am by BeachSpin

Marlo Hampton was on a nasty roll during last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta — stunning even scorched earth reality fans.

Viewers are crying foul after Marlo hit Kenya Moore way below the belt, going for the jugular over being left out of a couple of Kenya’s parties. Marlo hit hard, dragging Kenya’s sad estrangement from her mother into a  petty dialogue — and the scene was a messy one.

Fans weighed in on Twitter, blasting the Bravo drop-in for twisting the knife so hard into Kenya. 

Some viewers pointed out the obvious — that Marlo is slinging the mud hard to score a peach. Is Marlo so thirsty for the Bravo cameras, that nothing is off limits? Was Marlo spitting nails because of a party diss, or because she missed a few golden nuggets of camera time?

Kenya handled Marlo’s venom like a pro — and did not feed the beast.

Marlo will cross any line to score a spot on the Bravo stage — will her no-boundaries viciousness win her a peach?

    I don’t recall Sheree being dragged like this when she told Kenya “at least my mother loves me”

    • ALegWithWings

      I’ve been thinking the same thing.

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        What Marlo said was low but that is what Dust Mop gets, because when no one wanted anything to do with that hateful bish, Kenya kept bringing her around to get under Nene’s skin.
        Remember Kenya saying, “Everyone has a past & Marlo is a good girl!!”?
        Now look. The scorpion has stung the frog.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Marlo is an insufferable soul that been dragged up by a drug addict mother. She needs a lot of therapy to get over her insecurities and her own issues with abandonment. She’s such an incredibly sad soul.

  • Champagne Hangover

    Good. She deserves it.

  • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

    Is a social diss faux pas like not being invited to a function that big of deal; one that warrants such a cruel punch to the gut? This is not the first time we’ve seen Marlo go from zero to 180; I recall (seemingly out of nowhere), she called Kim Z. a whore at a reunion a few seasons ago. Although she did apologize, Marlo’s mouth is very Brandi-esque, and it’s going to get her into trouble one of these days.

    • Authentic

      Well, she went hard for Sheree in S Africa for not being invited to a party so maybe it is a big deal to her!?!?

      • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

        Obviously … mi$$ed opportunitie$ to film hit her in her pocketbook. Poor thang will have to do some extra BJ’s work extra hard for her coins.

        • Authentic

          Haha!

  • Sunflower

    Marlo felt confident gunning for Kenya in such a foul manner, because she has been listening to the chirping of Sheree, Phaedra and Porsha.
    Phaedra pretending that she brought the group together to reinforce woman hood… was a lot of horse-shizz!
    Pre-meditating circumstances are her forte!!

    • GetReal2014

      I wouldn’t be surprised, SF if Phaedra didn’t set it up. That’s how she works with her evil self, but the responsibility for uttering those words are Marlo’s. God don’t like ugly. So many people forget that.

  • Deanna777

    I don’t like Kenya at all, but that was a totally effed up thing for this peach-hungry bitch to say.

  • italiano bambino

    Google my charges 🍑

  • JC

    I love me some shade but I take back my vote about having Marlo on the show as a permanent cast member; because what she said about Kenya’s mom was a shade too dark for me

    • MicheleJss

      She didn’t throw shade, she picked up the whole tree and threw it.

  • LuxLuxLux

    That was truly nasty, the other women should’ve said something. Poorsha just as bad sitting there lapping it up. Sad bitches.

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      Why should any of them have said something?!? None of them ever steps in to diffuse situations.

      • MicheleJss

        I don’t even know them and I would have said something like. WTF is wrong with you????

        • GetReal2014

          Me too, Michele. No way would I have sat silent in the face of such cruelty. I felt sick to my stomach to even hear some sick chit like that. I don’t know people like this, and I am grateful for that.

        • BetteDavisEyez1

          Ditto. Most of the interactions between these nitwits would have had my head spinning. There are plenty of situations where I’d step in.
          …But at the end of the day, they are probably told ahead of time to let potential arguments play out. Let us all keep in mind that most of what we see is scripted. The more drama the better. So these women are not encouraged to shut arguments down as us normal ppl would do in real life.

        • BetteDavisEyez1

          Not a damn thing is wrong with me. I would not have sat there & let Marlo say what she said but there are a lot of things that loon, Dust Mop aka Kenya has said that I would have nipped in the bud. All of them just sit there like they are watching a tennis match.
          What the hell is wrong with you, with you’re aggressive self?!?
          See?!? I don’t tolerate it from not no one. Take a chill pill.

          • MicheleJss

            OH MY WORD yes something is wrong with you sense I was talking about Marlo not you. LOLOLOLOL!!!!!

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Oh. My apologies then. I must have misread your post.

    • GetReal2014

      Amen. There are lines in life that you do not cross and that can’t be justified. Period.

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    It was an absolutely disgusting comment. I hope Andy does NOT give Marlo any time on the reunion to talk about it.

  • Poo

    You all are talking as though Kenya is some sort of saint. She is more vicious than Marlo could ever be. Just remember how she used that young man as a storyline. She had ALLOWED Peter to invite him to the Charlotte club opening and then decided he could.t come because he hadn’t WORKED on himself enough to suit her. After hearing her say that, all I could hope for was that his family intervened and got him out of her sick clutches. She is the bitch from hell.

    • Why is that wrong? Like you said she didn’t feel he was stable enough to be near her or on film. She cancelled his ticket to NC. HE choose to work with production to get there and made an ass out of himself! She was right, he should not have come and he definitely should not have been on film. I get there are times she says crazy things but even when when she is right in her judgement or tried to protect him from acting a fool on camera she still gets flack!

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    I make no secret that I cannot stand Kenya but Marlo really went there. Funny how Kenya loves to play billy bad ass knew not to jump up in Marlo’s face.
    Those were fighting words but Dust Mop stayed firmly planted in her seat. Why didn’t she try what she did with KimF?!? She knows better. Just proves that she only plays crazy but she’s not stupid.

    • Authentic

      Oh Kenya picks her battles wisely. She ain’t that crazy! Marlo would beat the crap out of her. Hmmm, I’d like to see that one day

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        Precisely & she talks big shyt in her TH. Was there no sceptor for her to poke in Marlo’s face?!? Why didn’t she go snatch her chair from under her?!?
        Of all times for her to act a fool, she sat there like the punk that she truly is. Even though what Marlo said was very mean spirited, it just goes to show that Kenya is really just a bully towards people she knows she can pull that mess with.

        • I think she was as stunned as I felt! It was very hurtful and Kenya makes it no secret that she has been struggling to deal with the rejection her entire life. Plus Kenya loves her job and risking it to fight crazy Marlo would not be a smart move. She has apologized repeatedly for getting physical with Kim and has said that she would not make that mistake again. She needs to take the Nene approach and refuse to engage
          with those women when she comes to film. That is how Nene got rid of her.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Rid of her until Dust Mop sidled up to her to get under Nene’s skin. That is why I cannot even pretend to feel sorry for her.
            Nene had washed her hands of Mugshot Marlo but Kenya kept her around. Now, one of her dirty deeds has finally come back to bite her in her square ass. Like Nene said, you never win when you play dirty. Bloop!!

          • Dayle Hudson

            Who did Nene get rid of?

          • GetReal2014

            Kenya’s smart. Marlo is not worth the effort and she’s working for free. Talk about desperate and thirsty, Marlo’s picture should be next to it.

          • Hehe word!

          • GetReal2014

            I actually feel sorry for Marlo. Anyone who goes that deep over not being invited to job related reality TV show events has a deeper problem than we can even imagine. There is no excuse for that type of cruelty, especially when your own behavior and past is still haunting to this day.

            Marlo of all people should talk about abandonment and being evil, selling herself like a parcel, leaving home at aged 11, a drug addicted mother, time spent in the system, and no father to even speak of. I’m glad I’m on the other side of someone like her. I don’t want to identify with a person like that. Ever.

          • MicheleJss

            Well yeah!! And it was obvious what Marlo said was to hurt Kenya not make her angry. When someone goes deep like that to hurt you, anger is not what you feel. Deep hurt is what you feel. Holding back tears is what you are concentrating on not thinking about gee I want to punch her but Im a skerd. What the OP said was ridiculous.

          • GetReal2014

            It’s obvious that Marlo is a deeply wounded person. I hope she gets help. No one deserves that type of treatment for something as innocuous as a dang party invite, or lack thereof. There is something really wrong with a person like that.

            I wonder what the woman who’s face she slashed did. Another possible lack of invitation. Sheesh, this woman is crazy.

          • MicheleJss

            And that isn’t anything you can just say you’re sorry for it you were caught up in the moment. That is deep ugliness that you can’t get rid of or take back.

          • GetReal2014

            Exactly. To take something as insignificant as party invites and turn it into something that evil and vile shows who Marlo is at her core. That is the sickest crap I’ve ever seen.

            I don’t invite my friends to every event that I attend and vice versa. All of us are mature to understand that these things happen. But, I’ve noticed on SM that Marlo never has any friends, just makeup artists and help. I see why now. She’s a miserable human being.

          • Dayle Hudson

            Kenya has deep ugleness. The way she treated Kim showed that.

          • MicheleJss

            Who gives a crap about Kim???? Kim is a stuck up prude.

          • Stacy Johnson

            I love NeNe but she was sacred just like Kenya. She wanted to fight pregnant Phadrea and she wants to fight Porsha, she ran up on kim f.and her husband but didn’t check Marlo please. What Marlo said we’re fighting words and she did nothing give Marlo her peach.

    • MicheleJss

      Kenya has never went the route of being physical. Not sure why think she would. She has never been that way.

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        Nene had to physically restrain her when she tried to attack Porsha in Anguilla & she tried to snatch KimF chair from under her. My question is why she didn’t try all that crap with Marlo?!?
        Kenya threatened to knock a pregnant woman’s teeth out but she knew better than to go there with Mugshot Marlo.

        • MicheleJss

          Oh stop. She has never went to blows. Kenya has never acted like Porsha or Kandi. She has more class than that. Why in the world would she go after Marlo for what she said? Marlo said what she did to hurt her not make her angry. GET IT?

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            So you missed the “gone with the wind” episode?!? Did you miss the sceptor/bullhorn reunion or her snatching KimF’s chair episode?!?
            Say whatever you want but Kenya has invaded other’s space in an aggressive manner, more than once. She is just lucky that she has only gotten dragged only one time.
            Let her try that shyt on the subway in NYC or walking down the street anywhere on the planet.
            That is how you know her vibrato is all for cameras. Because in RT she would have been caught a beating.

          • Dayle Hudson

            Kenya has no class. People with class don’t do what she did to Kim. She is mean.

      • GetReal2014

        Too much class.

  • HearWhatISay

    as a child Marlo Patrice Hampton was a ward of the state who grew up in
    the foster care system due to her mother’s drug addiction and abuse.

    ………………FROM MARLO’S OWN WEBSITE
    ……….. so how can she even talk about Kenya?

    • GetReal2014

      She also said that she left her home at aged 11 because of her mother’s crack addiction. How can anyone, in good conscience think that dogging her out about what her mother did to her is justified? Some people are scary.

  • Tiffany

    Can’t feel sorry for evil Kenya unstill she starts treating people the way she wants to be treated.

    • Kenya does Create drama she knows her job as they all do. She is not getting in shady fights with some weaklings. ALL the ladies of ATL can all handle what she throws at them and she handles what they throw at her. This is what makes them all fun to watch. Going into the dark space Marlo went to last night was evil. Kenya does not do that. She could have brought up the fact that Marlo herself was a foster care baby but she did
      not. There is a difference between reality TV villain and reality. There is a line they should all not cross. Marlo crossed it last night as had Sheree on WWHL.

      • Poo

        You are are aware that Kenya Chose to make her relationship with her mother part of her storyline. Her mother has never gone to social media but Kenya chose to film her “visit” to her mother. We would never have known about their dynamic if Kenya hadn’t chosen to make it quite public. She will say or do anything to “keep her brand” relevant to Bravo.

        • MicheleJss

          So this is your justification for Marlo being a cold hearted B? Wow, just Wow. We can see who are also low life just reading these comments.

          • delaney

            Differing opinions does not make someone a lowlife.

          • Dayle Hudson

            Not calling opinions low life. Calling Marlo low life. GET IT?

          • MicheleJss

            Exactly and anyone that doesn’t see that what Marlo did was so wrong must think like her! I mean what does her bringing up her Mom on the show have anything to do with what Marlo did?

          • delaney

            I GET that some people GET awfully bothered by differing opinions. But thanks for asking.

          • MicheleJss

            Justifying Marlo because of some dislike for Kenya is not an opinion. It shows a person character. And then saying well Kenya brought her Mom up as if Marlo didn’t know about here as being friends. What the OP said has nothing to do with what Marlo did.

          • Poo

            If stating facts makes me a low life, so be it.

          • MicheleJss

            What does that have to do with what Marlo did?

          • Dayle Hudson

            I don’t think you were able to understand what was written. Read it again and.mabe you will get it

          • MicheleJss

            I did read it. They were putting it on Kenya like she deserved it. And you don’t see a problem with that?

          • delaney

            Not at all.

          • MicheleJss

            Wow. well that says your character also. Kenya was a child when she was abandoned. It wasn’t her fault. To now act as if she deserved that comment is as low as you can be in life. Well think what you want but it only hurts you. I can’t imagine being that miserable in life.

          • delaney

            You may want to stop judging other’s characters because your opinion is different. Can you move on, please? Bye.

          • MicheleJss

            This is about a person character not a stupid opinion.

        • She is supposed to share major life events or things that shaped her life. Her mother’s abandonment is a major part of Kenya. She is in no way responsible for how her mother behaved over the years. To imply that she somehow is the reason her mother choose to pretend she didn’t exist as a baby is cruel. It’s not like Kenya had any say or could be the reason. If you can’t see why Marlo is wrong because you dislike Kenya so much then there is not much I can say. But it’s wrong to attack people for something they didn’t create like being disabled, race…this to me falls in a category of things people are dealt in life to overcome.

          • GetReal2014

            Love this post.

      • delaney

        Kenyas crossed lines. Her attack on Kim Fields husband for starters. No sympathy for Kenya here ever.

        • Dayle Hudson

          I agree. That’s why I want Kenya and Marlo go.

      • Authentic

        You do realize Kenya is afraid of Marlo, right? That’s why she didn’t do anything.

        • The point of the article or my comment had nothing to do with who is afraid of whom. Marlo has been arrested on charges of assault several times so a smart person should be worried and cautious. No I don’t believe Kenya is scared of her but she also doesn’t want to get in altercation and risk being fired so glad she kept herself firmly sitting where she was. Marlo doesn’t need more air time to spew her venom.

          • GetReal2014

            It was a good shut down, and it worked.

      • GetReal2014

        Great post.

  • HearWhatISay

    I think Kenya knew that Marlo’s role was to bring drama and she really could care less about Marlo

    • GetReal2014

      She just pooh-poohed Marlo away. There was a lot she could’ve said about Marlo’s own mother situation, but she didn’t.

  • Sugar in my tank

    Puhleeze, I can’t expect anything from a felonious theiving desperate prostitute but this. This is just how corner hoes behave..no news here. See when you come for someone, leave their mamas and kids out of it because that can cause you to get a speed knot..

    • GetReal2014

      Not surprised at Marlo’s trifling behavior at all.

      • Sugar in my tank

        Grrrll, when a skunk feels threatened we know how they react…

        • GetReal2014

          Skunk describes her perfectly. Nasty azz, both literally and figuratively.

          • Sugar in my tank

            Double bloop..

          • GetReal2014

            🙂

        • GetReal2014

          They followed their nature and have stunk up RHOA. Foul odors everywhere.

          • Sugar in my tank

            Okay…

  • Authentic

    I have no sympathy for Kenya and rather enjoyed seeing her terrified as Marlo spoke. The eyelash comment was funny. It was obvious Sheree prepped her for this attack.

    • DANI

      Totally agree, Kenya has said so many disrespectful and hurtful things. She just got back all she has dished out. Did eveybody forget how she picked at Kim Fields the entire season for no reason at all. I have no sympathy for her.

      • Authentic

        No reason whatsoever!

  • Sandra Oh

    I don’t have a dog in this bitch fight, sorry. Both of them have hit so far under the belt so many times that I’m immune to being shocked.

    • Dayle Hudson

      There is no right in this but to go as low as Marlo did showed she is a low life. Kenya should always be in therapy. This remark could effect Kenya. I don’t like her for how she treated Kim and I think she should be off the show. Marlo I’d disgusting. If she stays on no matter how nice she tries to get I won’t like her. Let her and Kenya go

      • Sandra Oh

        I wouldn’t shed a tear if either one or both don’t come back. #byebitch

    Karma is always a beotch!

  • delaney

    What I wonder about is the truth of kenyas mother because we can’t believe one word out of kenyas big fugly mouth. Ever.

  • Lillian Witt

    Sheree is just as sad…She starts trouble and keeps her ex in the picture for a storyline! She needs the money so needs to stay on the show! All she is is a parrot…Repeating everything she hears but, never adds anything! Viewers will b on to her soon.

    • Trice Taylor

      She throws a rock and hides her hand. A dog that brings a bone carries one too. I don’t like Kenya but Marlo was dead ass wrong.

    • GetReal2014

      I’m surprised they haven’t caught on yet. That’s what she’s done from day one.

  • KittyInTheCity

    Going after Kenya’s abandonment is not OK, however I can’t deny I believe at least 80% of her nasty behavior stems from that. At 45 she should take some responsibility and have some real therapy. I’m not at all surprised she can’t get anyone to stick around.

    • MsNiagaraFallsNYUS

      Kenya prob has deep-rooted trust issues cuz of what happened with her mother.

      • KittyInTheCity

        It’s not just trust issues. Look at how she constantly treats other other women like trash. I’m not a Sheree fan, but when she came back Kenya went after her without any provocation in their FIRST conversation. It took her like 2 minutes to start being nasty. I think her antagonizing others (another example is chasing Porsha down the street after claiming she’s afraid of her) is her way of getting the attention she desperately wants.

        I get she’s a very damaged person, but for me there’s a certain age cutoff when I stop feeling bad for people like her. She is old enough to take care of her issues and stop hiding behind people like Cynthia who enable her bad behavior.

  • Dayle Hudson

    I could not stand Marlo from the very beginning. All she knows is gutter trash. Renna did the same thing to Kim. She said she went low so I went lower. Money doesn’t by c!ass and these two have none

  • first page

    No one had the nerve to ask Kandi if she is a lesbian so they knew Marlo would cause she has nothing to lose.

    • GetReal2014

      Right. What does she care? Just being nasty for no reason. If she can sell herself to old men, Kandi can sleep with whoever she wants to. Marlo is not the judge of anything.

  • WeCouldBeHeroes

    That was fatal shade from Marlo.
    Kenya can be nasty as well.

  • donna

    I don’t feel sorry for Krazy K, she stay coming for people & being nakky & rude. So what if Marlo hurt Krazy K’s poor wittle feelings, maybe she’ll think twice before running her mouth about other people!

  • GetReal2014

    What I find odd is that so many people grow up in single parent homes, usually the dads are the absent ones. Should we as children accept that we’re evil if a parent abandons us? People have so much hatred inside of them that they can’t see straight. Kenya has her father. Where are their fathers? Nene, Porsha, Cynthia, Sheree, etc,? Why does no one go after them? Hate is a negative emotion. It’s not pretty in the least.

  • Susan Rider

    Marlo went to far with Kenya. So Kenya didnt invite u to her housewarming etc etc so u THAT hurt bout it to the point where u want to bring up family issues pertaining to Kenya nd her mom. A lot of children grow up in single parent homes for many reasons, and wateva those reasons r, are we to blame the children for them?!?! Marlo is evil and vicious and she has to b the most needy nd insecure woman Ive seen. She is so thirsty to get picked up by Bravo bcuz shes tired of escorting but coming after Kenya that way was so disgusting and so desperate. I mean seriously Kenya apologized, wat more do u want? Marlo Im gonna need u to take several seats and get ur life girl smh Nenes friend once said Marlo was an opportunist, I guess I can see that now. A person not inviting u some where duznt warrant that response, unless Marlo is doing ALL that for shock value bcuz she wants a peach, shes being a tampon and inserting herself into the show, trying to do the most but she needs to stay wrapped, what Bravo should give her is a rotten egg cuz she is trash!!

  • Geraldine Johnson

    Marlo was raised in foster care, she had a nerve to say something about kenyas mom. At least Kenya was Miss America. Marlo was the queen of Prostitution.

    • GetReal2014

      Marlo is a nasty piece of work.

    • J Linda Jones

      Hummmm did you sleep with her ???

    • Yvette

      Kenya was Miss USA, never the first rate Miss America. She’d be as mad at you as she was at Porsha. Porsha upgraded her too and called her Miss America. LOL Kenya is the Baby Jane of reality TV.

  • Remote

    The cruelty of Marlo’s words were beyond vile and yes, almost made me want to cry for how low our society keeps going. Kenya handled that vicious stab with impressive grace and aplomb. I applaud her composure over what surely is a deep, deep wound in her heart.

    • GetReal2014

      Vile is right. What a filthy heart she has. Our society is indeed becoming depraved. People have no morals, compassion, or kindness anymore. Can you imagine the next generation. This is getting out of control.

  • Orlando Chan

    Yes what Marlo said was bad but Kenya has said some awlful things over the years as well.

  • Jenniffer Fry

    I like kenyas clap back NO ONE WANTS TO BE A PROSTITUTE…..😂😂😂😂

    • GetReal2014

      That was funny. Seriously Marlo? Nobody wants to willingly live your lifestyle, hooking and thieving. This bich is crazy.

  • Carol Unfiltered Mouth Hunter-

    I don’t feel sorry for Kenya she finally met her match

    • Yvette

      Yes girl! All she could do was call her a prostitute, something Kenya has been herself according to the same rumor mill she got that info about Marlo from. When that didn’t work she tried to look shocked like it was below the belt. Please the way she treated Kim Fields was below the belt. She got exactly what she does to everyone else and she deserves it.

  • GetReal2014

    Ironically, Marlo’s cruelty may have had the opposite of her desired effect. She wanted to be on the show so bad she tried to cut deep, but instead she got dragged mercilessly on SM. The majority of fans did not appreciate her evil act, so it’s doubtful that she’ll ever get a peach. Instead of wounding Kenya, she sliced her own self with the knife.

    Kenya’s been on the show long enough to know how low these skanks are. I doubt Marlo’s words affected her in the least. Kenya looked calm and not angry as this was no more than what she expected from a low life like Marlo. Hell, Marlo isn’t the only cruel person on the show, you can throw in anyone who has brought family issues to the table, that includes Sheree and Porsha, two known whores.

    So, of the women who have been that cruel, Marlo, Sheree, and Porsha. What do people expect? In retrospect, such comments are worthy of their lack of character.

    Well I don’t see what Marlo did as anymore cruel than any of the nasty things Kenya does on a regular basis. Kenya tried her best to get everyone on Porsha on the bus trip hours before Marlo went in on her. Saying the same things she said before to trigger the attack that Porsha walked out on. She is a beast when it comes to younger and more attractive women.

    Kenya is closer to 50 than 40 and she has known her entire life that her mother didn’t want her. It wasn’t a secret to her, she is a nasty bitter ass aging spinster that takes every opportunity to hurt other people. Then whines about her mother to get sympathy. Why should her feelings be off limits? I don’t feel sorry for her at all. She just knew she had better not antagonize Marlo any further because she would get dragged. She does that with everyone that goes in on her with the capability of tearing her ass up.

    And didn’t Kenya talk about Sheree’s mom and Kandi’s mom? But no one can comment on the reality of her relationship with her mom? Bitch always crying about what someone says to her but she always saying things about everyone else. But when she does it we’re supposed to think it’s cute and funny but when it’s done to her we’re supposed to be appalled? Well I’m not.
