Marlo Hampton Explains What She Does for a Living

Marlo Hampton definitely has an air of mystery about her. Ever since she first appeared on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the Georgia Peaches and fans alike have had a lot of questions about Marlo's life, from what she does for a living to who she's dating.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

Hoping to get some more clarity on the subject, one caller asked Marlo to describe her job during her appearance on Sunday night's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen (clip above). And in the process, we actually got another one of our burning questions about Marlo answered: whether the rumors that she once dated Ted Turner are true. "My grandmother told me at a young age how to invest in property. I've owned properties for years. I also dated a billionaire," Marlo said of how she makes her money, confirming that said billionaire was not the famed media mogul. "And to sum it all up, I'm sitting right here with Andy Cohen. This platform allows me to make plenty money, posting my businesses, Arie and Emma, named after my mother and grandmother where I sell jewelry, I have stores. I have a lot. I'm an entrepreneur. I'm a hustler."

Marlo previously revealed that she once dated a billionaire during the RHOA Season 10 reunion. When Andy asked if he was the CNN founder, Marlo said in response, "No, I don't tell all my tea now."

The RHOA fashionista has never identified the billionaire she once dated. However, she did reveal during an interview with The Daily Dish last year that her home and her mother's home were gifts from him

Nene Leakes came to Marlo's defense when she appeared on WWHL on March 3, praising her hard work and entrepreneurial spirit. "Marlo is not a broke B, OK?" Nene told a caller. "You see what she wears and you see what she drives and you see how she lives. So she does a lot of things." 

Nene chats more about Marlo's extensive resume, below.
