Are you ready for some reunion gossip? It’s just about that time for the Real Housewives of Atlanta, who just wrapped a reunion special so intense that host and Bravo exec Andy Cohen left to go on vacation immediately after. If you’re a seasoned fan of the housewives, you know that every season there is always the same line about how it was the best ever, so I’ll believe it when I see it. In the meantime, we can do what we do best and speculate!
It appears that “friend” of the housewives and lover of luxury goods Marlo Hampton was brought on to the reunion to stir up drama. Per “insiders,” Marlo made a scene when she called out Kandi Burruss as a “sugar mama.” It’s interesting that Marlo sees this as an insult, since she’s been living off of the kindness of generous rich folks for quite some time now (allegedly). Kandi made her money and if she wants to spend it on some hot young thing, why not?
Next up, and a bit funnier, is the rumor that Marlo ends up accusing Kim Zolciak of using that enormous ring Big Poppa bought her a few seasons ago, to help pay for the new ring that husband Kroy Biermann got her. While, that’s a unique way of discarding presents from ex-boyfriends, it’s also not true.
Kim immediately headed to Twitter to clear up the allegations with a photo, posted below, of both rings side by side. Why buy a ring when Bravo can get a product placement deal from a jeweler? Since Kim’s wedding became fodder for her spin-off special, I don’t doubt that is what happened. I also don’t think Kim needed to trade in any jewelry. If there’s one thing we know about Kim, it’s that she’s actually not too bad with money. You can check out the picture below. Apparently, the ring does mean a thing.
The final rumor, and one that’s been floating around for some time now, is that Marlo will not be invited back to the show due to her criminal background. One report on PerezHilton alleges it’s due to “her past as an escort.” Marlo has had several documented run-ins with the law for check forgery and assault. While, nearly all the housewives have had legal issues, mostly relating to real estate and bankruptcy, the only other housewife who has had a truly checkered past is Danielle Staub, and we all know what happened to her. No one likes a lawsuit, so I bet Marlo (and her designer clothing) won’t be returning.
The only thing Marlo really contributed to this season was drama, with no fun to back it up. I get the impression she was supposed to be a sidekick to NeNe Leakes, someone else with a big personality who could create interesting scenes. Instead, there was major diva attitude and a homophobic slur.
“For some reason no matter what we do, Sheree never has a good time at our events. I’m not really sure why she even bothers to come. Oh, maybe since she had already decided that she was going to have a horrible time, it would at least be a great opportunity to bring Lawrence to confront Marlo about the whole F-word issue. From the look on her face, she clearly enjoyed every single minute of it.”
Cynthia weighs in on Kim’s absence from the party. She wasted no time expressing how she truly feels about Kim, and it’s not surprising:
“It was not exactly a shocker that Kim did not attend the party. She is an associate, not a friend. The invite was a courtesy, same as the baby shower invite. I often get invited to outings amongst the girls that I choose to attend out of respect, not desire. In hindsight, Kim’s absence was actually a small blessing. I’m sure nothing would have been good enough for her, and she would have brought her own bottle of wine.”
