Marlo Thompson Offers Heartfelt Apology to Atlanta 'Wives
"I don't need to tear you down to build myself up," she says of her screaming match with NeNe.
NeNe Leakes and her erstwhile bridesmaid and friend Marlo Thompson had a major falling out on last week's episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, which ended with Marlo hurling insults at NeNe in a parking lot.
Now, Marlo has taken to her blog to write a long apology about the incident. "I realize how we women sometimes tear each other apart in anger when in truth we're really just feeling hurt or betrayed. But that's not the woman I want to be," she writes.
"I can't fake hurt or anger because I'm human and I'm always going to be real. When I care for someone, I'm doing so without any ulterior motives. And, while being betrayed by family or friend can take you 'there,' retaliating with an equally inappropriate verbal or physical assault can never be justified. So I'm checking myself," she continues. "I need to do better."
She concludes the post with a heartfelt and personal call-out to many of the RHOA ladies, writing "To all the RHOA/Bridesmaids I have offended: Phaedra, Kandi, Kim, Sheree, Diana, Pat and NeNe, I apologize. We may never be friends or see eye to eye on anything, (and I'm cool with that!) however, I don't need to tear you down to build myself up. I know who I am - The Diva, Marlo Patrice Hampton and I am the spotlight, but so are you. Let's all bask in it. God made sure there would be enough shine for all of us."
