There were ample speculations about who would be returning and who would be added to the cast of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” season 11. The show has returned but Marlo Hampton still hasn’t snagged a permanent peach and according to the latest reports — she never will.
Marlo Hampton has been a friend to the show on and off many years now. Nene Leakes’ bestie has become a fan favorite and a fan foe during her multitude of appearances.
Since she was spotted more than often hanging out with the Atlanta gals while filming, rumors started to circulate on if she was given a peach-holder position.
A source told The Jasmine Brand that Hampton will never be able to hold her own on Bravo’s top-rated show because of the horrible things she’s said in the past.
In 2012, the woman who holds many jobs got into a heated argument with Sheree Whitfield where she let out a homophobic slur.
“And anyway, that’s why you don’t have a man, Go and hang with them f*** with your ugly, stupid a**.”
Later in the season, she did the same during Cynthia Bailey’s anniversary party while her hairstylist, Miss Lawrence, was present.
Marlo posted an apology on her blog that read: “I would like to offer from the bottom of my heart the fullest and most heartfelt apology for my recent use of an anti-gay slur. When I used this word, I was not mindful of the demeaning connotation that this has in the gay community. My speech was irresponsible, thoughtless and said with the intention of conveying anger rather than as a statement on my feelings towards the gay community as a whole.”
That wasn’t enough for the show’s executive producer who is an out and proud gay man, Andy Cohen.
The source explained: “Not only was Andy upset, but it was damaging with the LGBTQ viewers and execs at the network”
