Marlo Hampton dropped a surprising tidbit about Kenya Moore’s love interest, Roi, on Episode 10 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 15: Not only did she know him, but they had even gone out on a date in the past.

Reflecting on the moment when Kenya introduced her castmates to Roi via FaceTime, Marlo said on Episode 10 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 15 After Show, filmed earlier this season, “When I saw his face, it was just like, that shocked me.” 

Marlo then proceeded to tell the ladies that she and Roi had gone on a date after he apparently slid into her DMs. Drew Sidora said on the RHOA After Show that she saw this as Marlo “kinda being messy a little bit,” but Marlo insisted, “I didn’t even try to make it something major. I just told what it was.”

“I had the whole texts from however long ago,” Marlo explained. “[I] went to eat with him … [we] ate at the Mexican restaurant [and] both of us, in our G-wagons, parked next to each other.”

Kenya Moore’s Response to Marlo Hampton and Roi’s Past

Telling her side of the story on the RHOA After Show, Kenya claimed that Roi “did not slide in her DMs.” 

“They originally met in the restaurant — Marlo and a friend of his were in [Roi]’s restaurant — and that’s when he first met her,” Kenya explained. “And then, you know, they took a lunch, is what he calls it. And it was like, that wasn’t a damn date. And as soon as I heard, I was like, girl, that wasn’t a date. You did not get a steak. You did not get a callback. That was a meet and greet.”

“But if it had been a date,” Kenya added, “thank you, because you showed him you ain’t the one. So now I got him, so thank you for that.”

Shereé Whitfield

Shereé Whitfield had a lot to say on the matter because of the previous drama surrounding Shereé’s boyfriend, Martell Holt, allegedly DM’ing Kenya at one point in time. As Shereé told Marlo on the RHOA After Show, “What’s funny was you went on a date with him before and he was in your DMs, when they made such a huge deal about being in a DM.”

But when Marlo brought up her and Roi’s past, Shereé added, “They didn’t talk about that DM.”

“The double standard of it all,” she continued. “We can tear down or try to tear down [and] ambush somebody about a DM, but then here we are with a DM from a guy that you’re dating, and a date, and you don’t wanna acknowledge it.”

Kandi Burruss

Kandi Burruss didn’t address the Martell drama and instead pointed out the differences between how Marlo and Kenya each met Roi. “Marlo says that he slid up in her DMs, right? And with Kenya, they were genuinely introduced by a mutual friend,” Kandi said. “So it wasn’t like he just so happened to be going after two women that are a part of the same TV show, you know what I mean?”
