Marlo Hampton

Marlo explains why she wasn't honest with Miss Lawrence about her fight with Sheree.

on Mar 12, 20120

Today I learned a new word, schadenfreude \SHOD-n-froy-duh\ , noun: A malicious satisfaction obtained from the misfortunes of others. I learned that when people around you do not mean you well, you must not give them the tools with which they can trip you up.

Some time had passed since my mistake. To be honest, I had hoped that with it all taking place on a different continent, maybe it would not have traveled back home. There I was, all dressed up and ready to play -- I expected the evening only to be fun. But Sheree had been waiting. To look at it now, she had it all planned out. She had as fast as she could made sure to tell on me, and like a vulture circling its prey, she had chosen the optimal time to strike -- when I least expected it and was defenseless.

Marlo, Good response. I do believe that move was calculated and Sharee was on a "Throw everybody under the bus" roll. She was thirsty when she threw Kandi under the bus with that " afrikan baby" remark.That chic is ruthless! I would never want a encounter with her phoney, sneaky azz.

Marlo what you were really saying is that you wanted to cut the bitch, but I love the way you handled and you are a true lady for doing so.

Oh, Marlo, u 1 though chick and I couldn't stop watching that epic fight between u and that sorry excuse of a woman, Sheree. Finally someone put her in her place. Go Marlo, maybe you'll replace her next season. High time for her 2 be dropped from the show. She has nothing more 2 offer 2 this show other than heaps of emberassment on her part and bucket full of lies and jealous rages.

MARLO I AM APPALLED AT YOUR BEHAVIOR. I THINK YOU SEEM VERY UNEDUCATED, SELF ABSORBED, AND YOU ARE NOT GOING TO GET TOO FAR IN LIFE. YOU MAY HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ENJOY SOME LUXURIES. GOD DON'T LIKE UGLY. I DON'T LIKE THE WORD, FA**** BUT I WILL ADMIT THAT SOMETIMES PEOPLE SLIP AND USE THE WORD AND DO NOT MEAN IT FOR ITS ACTUAL DEFINITION. WHAT I CAN'T STAND IS YOU LYING WITHOUT ANY PROBLEM, YOU STOOD THERE AND LIED AND THAT CLEARLY SHOWED THE WORLD WHO YOU REALLY ARE AS A PERSON. THE WORLD SHOULD HAVE ALREADY KNOWN THIS BEING YOU HAVE A CRIMINAL RECORD LONGER THAN PEOPLE STILL IN JAIL TO THIS DAY. ANDY COHEN GAVE YOU A CHANCE TO BE ON THIS SHOW AND THIS IS HOW YOU REPAY HIM? I HOPE YOU ARE NOT INVITED BACK NEXT SEASON BECAUSE YOUR BEHAVIOR CANNOT BE REWARDED. IT WOULD BE ONE THING IF YOU APOLOGIZED AND OWNED UP TO IT WHEN CONFRONTED BUT YOU ARE A COWARD AND YOU ARE NOT SMART AND THAT IS WHY YOU BLATANTLY LIED WITH A SMILE ON YOUR FACE AND LOOKED DUMB AS ROCKS. NICE WORD, SCHADENFREUDE - THANK YOUR PUBLICIST FOR HELPING YOU WITH THAT ONE.

To Miss Lawerence: I thank you for your willingness to forgive Marlo for what she said in anger. We all have said things we were sorry for after the anger have subsided. I know you were hurt when that buzzard told you what was said and made it seem as if you were the one being targeted. It takes a big person to forgive someone after they have hurt your feelings and cut you so deeply. You, Miss Lawerence, are a big person, with an even bigger heart. I hope to see more of you in the future.

Girl, I can tell you are highly intelligent and very articulate, honey you wrote that thing in suspense and brought it on home busting Shehee's bubble when she didn't get what she thought she was going to get. You need to go on and write that book, you definately got it in you, I really enjoyed your blog, Go Marlo!!

Marlo didn't have to admit to anything in front of messy Sheree. Sheree put Marlo in an awkward position at Cynthia's party and Marlo had every right to deny it to avoid further conflict at an inappropriate time and place. Kudos for Marlo being accountable for what she said and apologizing to Lawrence in private.

Marlo...you are actually growing on me. I did not like your shady background but only God never made a mistake. I like you just don't like the dropping of designer name every second. If you have to drop the name you shouldn't have to pay so much for it.

Well, Miss Marlo looks like you set your self up with the little episode that happened last week. Have you ever heard do unto others as you would have them do unto you. My how the tables have turned The expensive designer labels you where look good on you but sista you got some deep issues. Advise listen before you speak or react because . Your on tv teach your sista's something else other than how to lay on our backs and buy labels. Once you open your mouth it was embarrassing.

The show is called: "REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA". Ms. Hampton has never been a housewife nor, has she ever maintained a housewife's household. She certainly should not become a regular on a show that is geared for the purpose of revealing the activities of "HOUSEWIVES". She can be a guest (like Lawrence etc.) maybe? but not a housewife. As far as the LV designer bags she brags about, fashionable women stop carrying them because everyone start carrying the fake, and they look just as good as the real ones. Material things have nothing to do with the success of a person. "COMMON SENSE" good ole "MOTHER WITT" will carry you through

You made yourself look absolutely foolish by lying. Sheree did what most would have by telling Lawrence and he would have seen it anyway. You're a coward for lying but at least you did fess up in the end.

You said it, you own it. Everyone makes mistakes, however lying about instead of admitting what you said a apologizing for this. You lied. For someone who was so was so interested in etiquette, I guess you didn't finish the book.

FYI. Designer clothes can not buy you class. It does not matter what you wear, it's who you are and what you stand for, not what you wear. This comes for a women who dresses extemely well (designer clothes) and has class It's not because of what I wear.

Marlo, I think you seem too eager to argue...these ladies keep their own ish going, I think you need to lay back and watch how they work first...Sharee is a shit starter , she has something to say about everyone...but is the first to take some ish back that someone else said...what was said in Africa between the ladies about kim should have been a conversation left in Africa, who do she suppose to be? kim's liaison ? Sharee keep's shit stirred up...why because you're scared someone is gonna out do you...sorry thats been done already...them lil fashions you had wasn't good enough to go any further than your closet! Phaedra is the classiest and the smartest one, Cynthia the pretty one, NeNe the funniest, Kandi the most straight forward one, and smart..Sharee is the nosiest one, very boring without gossip, shit stirrer...Marlo the loudest ..Kim is boring also!

I think you have a lot of class to come back and talk to Lawrence one on one. Sheree is definitely a big mouth and don't ever take that heifer to Vegas.

Well, I don't think you wrote this blog yourself, it sounds like you have a little sense. Also, no one invited you on the trip. You should have stayed your butt home. Nene said "Drama!" after inviting you on the trip, therefore, that's what everyone got. I just wish on that trip everyone showed their sensitive side. It came out a little, however, showing off with all the expensive shoes and argueing was not good at all. I also think Sheree is a troublemaker.

I feel like you didn't step up to lawrence like you should have and told sheree with her scary ass what was she on because as you can see she don't like you nor do Kandi no singing ass like you they are scared walking around talking about you behind your back showing you criminal act and mug shots so when it's all said and done I think you need to get away from the show cause it's becoming more ghetto as the days go by

I did like you handled the incident with Lawrence. It wasn't Sheree's place to bring it up and then be there while you talk to Lawrence, how tacky was that. I'm impressed that you realized saying it then would have caused stupid drama that Sheree instigated. It was classy of you to go ahead and lie, but then pull Lawrence to the side to talk to him one on one. When you first asked Lawrence to come with you to talk, Sheree just ran behind. You should have told her, not you, just Lawrence. I liked how you handled it.

Is someone else writing this for you? You communicate so much better in writing than you do speaking. You seem to be very thoughtful and not so materialistic. I get knowing designer names, but who cares what you're wearing every hour, every day. I agree with Cynthia that mixing designer pieces with items you find in boutiques or at a bargain store really make the look unique and personalizes it. Anyone can buy something off the rack, but making the look just for me is more satisfying and happen to like bargains. I worked at a high end store in the '80 (Neiman-Marcus) and I saw the mark up. So what you think you're buying, your just putting more money in their pocket. the item really didn't cost that much. I'm starting to like you Marlo.

Marlo, When I first saw the clip, I was like.....Marlo, you are lying. Then I saw how you turned your head and touched your hair. At that moment, I knew that moment you would be speaking to Ms. Lawrence "without Sheree" to apologize.

I've read many comments that you should have owned up to it. You did, just not at the party. I think you did the right thing by waiting. And, I saw the apology to Ms. Lawrence.....no more drama.

I agree it was not the time or place. Sheree has shown up at the last few events and all she does it b%tch, b@tch, b*itch. If she doesn't have anything to say, she shuold keep her mouth closed. Peter's grand opening, Cynthia's grand opening, the anniversary party, Ayden's party. Stay your miserable self at home and we all (viewers included) will all be happy.

The only reason that you have now owned up to it, is that it is on tape, you cannot deny it!

If you didn't want to lie then you should not have put yourself in a position to have to lie. Regardless of that snake named Sheree gloating the onus was on you. You said it and therefore you should have apologized immediately. Why try and grandstand for that snake's benefit. You're better than that!

Marlow, I respect that fact that you did apologize. If Sheree wanted to confront you with Lawrence that was the wrong time and place and I like how you handled that siutation. You did not direct your comment at Lawrence so, Sheree is a stuff starter. Don't worry girl she is trying to stay relevent and keep her only income coming in. (Rumor has it she is being dropped for next season) So I can see the desperation in her eyes! Don't sweat the small stuff and keep showing up looking glamorous and show that chic po (with her last year fashions). Everytime you show up she is always looking like fool because she knows you are looking fly. It's funny to watch her in the background checking you out with disgust in her eyes (it looks like good old jealousy and envy) Calm down the label name dropping because whatever you wear you always look gorgeous. I think if you do that you will be more likeable. We already like you and I want to see you shut Sheree down over and over and over agian. (Her head is too big for no reason) She's so tired still talking about that child support she aint never gonna get. Anyway love ya toodles

Sherree actually gets off making trouble for others. She obviously has that vicious streak and has too much time on her hands. What does she do all day?????? She has no career - has no life - doesn't work - insinuates herself into every other person's life. All the other ladies are successful - all she has is the Housewives' show. We, the viewers, see her true colors and just how twisted she really is. She is so over the top jealous of everyone else that it's pathetic. I love the way you stand up to her, it's great. She has instigated trouble between just about everyone on the show and has fought with just about everyone too. The fact that she feels she can critique everyone's behavior is laughable. She wouldn't know class if it came up and slapped her. She really needs to get a life and get out of everyone else's.

Lying is lying...and, yes, you did. Then, to his face you denied it, when we all know it's on tape. You got caught behaving badly. What happened to being upstanding, apologizing, taking your medicine, and learning a lesson?

Sheree is an awful, heinous person. Don't feel bad about lying in that situation. She didn't deserve the satisfaction! Love you Marlo...mean it. Hope to see you in the new season.

Marlo,

We all make mistakes but there is room for forgiveness!!! Marlo, you should clear the air with Lawrence...and if, he can't accept your apology to then, so be it. You really should do clear the air and let Sharee run and tell that.....

Marlo,

You played Sheree out and that is exactly what she gets. I would have denied it too.She is broke and jealous and is trying to stay relevant on the show.

You said it well Marlo. Not a Marlo fan but I do believe Sheree is a trouble maker this season. The look in her eyes with this and the Kandi thing makes me wonder what kind of friend she really is. Advise Sheree, people in glass houses should never throw stones.

If you want to be on this show so bad, you'll have to learn that you can't say something so inflammatory and not expect it get around. You had no choice but to take responsibility for what you said because it was filmed. Also filmed was that you showed up uninvited and unannounced to the airport, then act like an honored guest and got into fights with the Real Housewives, during which you used the word that got you into trouble with the ladies and Lawrence.

You should be treading much more lightly, if you wanted to extend your time with the H'wives (and with the cameras), Which means that you should operate from a place of humility rather than behaving the way you did. Especially when you've got bigger problems-specifically, the details of your criminal history. "They need to check my charges" is what you said. Well, pretty much everyone did..and you are in no position to be getting high and mighty with these women. Stop wasting everyone's time, get her off the show.

Marlo, Marlo, Marlo........I gotta say I love it that you are blogging and giving us an in site into who Marlo really is. I must say I was a bit confused as to why you didn't anty up with Ms. Lawrence at Cynthia's Anniversary Party. But your blog explained it all. Girl, you broke it down.

You are a bit over the top, but that's what I like about you. You keep it 100% and that I can respect. BRAVO-----Give Marlo & NeNe their own show pleeeeeaaasssseeeee!!!!

It really shows how sorry you really are by trying to blame Sheree, when of course she is going to tell her friends what you said, no matter what their sexual orientation is. You were wrong plain and simple, it doesn't matter if you were referring to Lawerence or not. It was a place you shouldn't have taken it.

Marlo, I hope you show up to the Reunion Show because I want to hear what excuse you're going to say for flat out lying to Lawrence's face. He's a nice guy and if he is a friend then how can you do that to him? Granted in a way it didn't give what Sheree wanted which is more trouble but you should not have lied on national TV. I can't wait for the Reunion because there's going to be alot of battles because of all the back stabbing that went on this season. I really hope that you do not return next season because you are as FAKE as they come!! Stop throwing labels around and stop having people do stuff for you (remember, Blue Eyes?)

Marlo,

As horrible as it was seeing and hearing you calling homosexual men the "F" word....it's even worse that you are trying to spin the blame onto another person for getting called out on it. Add that to the fact that you lied into the face of one of the homosexual men you were referring to...and it just can't get any worse. Now you want to publicly defend yourself when you simply can not in this issue. You should have just sucked it up, made an apology and moved on. Don't blame Sheree for relaying information that was filmed and that was going to be displayed for all to see anyway. You just didn't like her tactic....well....viewers did not like YOUR tactics either.

A real woman would have just owned up, apologized, sip some wine and went back in the party and started dancing with Lawrence like nothing happend....I like all you ladies, just watch your words and action and pick your battles.

Marlo ou were right to try to avoid the drama, maybe to lie was not right, but at that time that was the best thing to do or mabe ou could have asked L to step outside and away from Sharee, You knew Sharee wanted the drama glad you didn't fall into that. Now I reall Don't get Kandi, When Sharee came to her to back her up,she should have said I really can't remember that I only remember how you twisted my words to Kim. I do beieve had it been another place and time ou would have admitted to Lawrance the truth. I love ou and NeNe.

Marlo threw a temper tantrum that night in South Africa, acted like a juvenile at the club throwing money in the air trying to be impressive, invited women over to her hotel room to show off her show collection, used a derogatory term and then lied about it to save face. (The mature thing would be to humbly admit to the mistake, accept the inevitable humiliation that comes with making the mistake, and apologize. Instead, she lied in order to avoid the humiliation of owning up to a mistake in front of a gloating Sheree. It may be the truthful excuse, but nonetheless a bad excuse.) Anyway, this is not a woman I want to watch because I don't see a single quality, other than her taste in dresses, that I respect. Please don't bring her back on the show next season.

Marlo you make my sister and I laugh! We call each other up quoting you! Our favorite is "Hell naw be QUIET!!!!!!" We love how you embarassed the hell out of Sheree! She looked so silly repeating herself over and over about you being with a "80 year old white man!" And why isnt anyone "verbally beating up" Sheree about making it seem dirty because you used to have a relationship with a white person? We all say things in the heat of the moment sometimes that we unfortunately can't take back. The only difference is your on television and are constantly reminded of what you said and the rest of us aren't! Anyway, I'm glad your on the show and I hope Andy Cohen brings you back next season!!

Marlo! You won me over in the very moment you denied saying the f word. Now I agree you should have apologized to him and then said, "lets gets back to the party"- but not giving that moment to Sheree was hilarious. Thanks for the laugh hon.

Thank you Marlo. You saw right through Sheree's BS. Too bad Lawrence didn't pick it up sooner. The anniversary party was not the time nor place for a confrontation and I'm glad you squashed it right then and there. Why did Sheree wait over a week to bring this up to Lawrence? She was trying to ruin Cynthia's party and get Lawrence acting like a fool. She needs to be kicked off the show because she offers nothing of substance to the show.
