According to a new report, Marlo Hampton is the newest castmember of the Real Housewives of Atlanta!

The StraightFromTheA blog broke the news this week as Marlo stepped out to attend an event with RHOA alums Sheree Whitfield, Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey.

And in case you’re wondering, pictured above with Marlo is her fiance NFL Player Charles Grant. And if that names rings a bell to you, it’s because Charles has been heavily rumored to have had a fling with a certain Ms. Nene Leakes. In fact, Nene was rumored to have gotten pregnant for Charles just back in December.

Both Nene and Charles denied the rumors back then but with Bravo’s strategic casting of Marlo, one has to wonder if those rumors were true after all. The StraightFromTheA blog speculates that Marlo was brought on to stir up some trouble with the Nene. Even more interesting, Marlo is said to be a stylist who has styled Nene in the past plus she has an arrest record for assaulting anther female, reportedly over a man.

And as was reported a while back, all of the Atlanta housewives from last season are returning this season so Marlo is not replacing anyone on the show. There had been some rumors that she was brought on to replace Nene but those are false. Marlo’s casting also makes sense as a report came out a month ago stating Bravo is seriously in talks with both Nene and Kim Zolciak to give them their own spinoff shows a la Bethenny Frankel. And we all know what happened with Bethenny as she ended up not returning to the Real Housewives of NYC.

While Bravo has yet to officially confirm Marlo’s casting (they never do until a series is ready to debut), it’s safe to say Marlo is the newest Atlanta Housewife! That is unless Bravo has a change of heart and decides to give her the Fernanda Rocha treatment, aka demote her to an extra because she ended up being too boring. But judging from Marlo’s storyline, that is highly unlikely.

The Real Housewives of Miami

An all new episode of the Real Housewives of Miami will air tonight on Bravo.

On the 2nd episode of the season titled, “Black Ball’d” Lea and her husband host an annual fund-raising gala featuring A-list guests and celebrities. The evening appears to be a shining success, yet tension rises when Cristy arrives with two guests lacking an RSVP.

The new episode airs at 10/9c.

Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight are Miami housewives Marysol Patton and Cristy Rice.

In other MIA news, Larsa Pippen and hubby Scottie Pippen have put their Miami mansion up for sale for a mere $16 million! The 13,500 sq ft home has 6 bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms. The annual taxes alone? Over 85k.

Many however feel the Pippens’ home is grossly overpriced. For one, they only paid $1.34 mil for the home back in the year 2000, $14 million less than what they are asking for today. Plus a number of real estate experts estimate the home is worth no more than $5 million at best. The home was in fact assessed and valued at $4.8 mil back in 2009.

Perhaps the Pippens are trying to use their celebrity to their advantage or they just feel their home is worth that much, it will be interesting to see if it sells for that price. A few photos of the home exterior are below as well as a preview clip of tonight’s episode.
