Earlier this week, there were reports that veteran “Real Housewives of Atlanta” supporting cast mate Marlo Hampton had returned to the show for another guest spot, after appearing on NeNe Leakes’ “I Dream Of NeNe.” But it looks like Hampton’s “RHOA” guest spot has ended just as quickly as it began and she’s allegedly been fired from the show after a squabble with Leakes.
As most fans of the show already know, Hampton and Leakes have been involved in a growing public beef after Leakes claimed that Hampton was never made a full cast member because she’s difficult to work with. However, Hampton replied that she’s not a cast member because she’s not married.
Although many assumed that the beef between the ladies would become at least a minor story arc on the upcoming sixth season, According to The Jasmine Brand, things between the two women blew up at Cynthia Bailey’s bowling event this past weekend.
Sources claim that Hampton and Kenya Moore, who also recently had a falling out with Leakes, have become chummy lately. Sources also claim that producers of the show, namely former “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” producer Carlos King, have been instigating a beef between Hampton and Leakes, and they finally got what they were asking for when the two women got into a verbal altercation at Bailey’s event. Leakes reportedly claimed that Hampton was showing off for the cameras.
And things didn’t end there. Sources claim that Leakes confronted King about instigating the fight and poured water all over him before claiming that either Hampton needed to be fired or she would leave the show. Of course, producers chose to keep Leakes and Hampton will allegedly no longer appear on “RHOA.”
Separate reports claim that Leakes also hit Hampton and a producer, but Leakes recently share her side of the story on Twitter.
