Marlo Hampton

Real Housewives Of Atlanta in Japan

It’s been a while, but finally it’s time for some Real Housewives Of Atlanta updates. First of all, the ladies are in Tokyo, Japan for their big cast trip. It’s unusual for Bravo to recycle locations – last season some of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills traveled to Japan, but maybe because it wasn’t the official trip, Bravo decided double-dipping was OK.

Second of all, by now everyone knows Kenya Moore is not coming back. Probably a good thing considering she’s pregnant and who needs all this stress while also percolating a baby. I don’t doubt that at some point Kenya will reemerge, but for this season she’s on personal leave. In Kenya’s place is Eva Marcille as an official Housewife (she is getting married next week and it will be featured on the show, probably as the season finale party).

Sightings: NeNe Leakes, Carole Radziwill, Kristen Taekman, And More

In our latest edition of reality star roundup, we have Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes and her sometimes sidekick Marlo Hampton at the 2018 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta. The show is currently filming so it’s possible we’ll get a behind the scenes glimpse of this outing they went on together.

Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent hit the red carpet for the first since announcing her engagement to Randall Emmett.

Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof and her ex-husband Dr. Paul Nassif continue to be the friendliest of exes, posing for photos with their dates at an event over the weekend.

Check out all of the latest reality star sightings below, including Farrah Abraham, Kathy Wakile (who must be taking a break from all of those epic vacations!), Kyle Richards and so many more!

Instagram Roundup: Brittany Cartwright, Lisa Rinna, Tinsley Mortimer, Gina Kirschenheiter, & More!

Apparently mirror selfies are still going strong. New York Housewife Tinsley Mortimer recently posted one with her on-again-off-again boyfriend Scott Kluth. So it’s safe to assume that these two are “on again.” Real Housewives of Orange County new girl Gina Kirschenheiter also shared a photo of post-glam session look.

Below Deck Mediterranean cast member Jamie Jason showed off her bikini body with a mirror selfie of her own. And then there’s  Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent, the queen of the mirror selfie, serving up a super casual (and most likely super expensive) look.

Sheree Whitfield

Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? I hate that phrase, but I have to imagine that’s the mentality the casting department had when they wanted to demote Sheree Whitfield to a “Friend of the Housewives” on Real Housewives of Atlanta. They could get her to instigate some drama between the cast without giving her the salary of a full-time cast member. After years away, the OG cast member made her return to the show as a “Friend of the Housewives” before she got upgraded to full-time again.

Sheree is great for stirring the pot and bringing issues to the forefront, but other than that she had pretty much no storyline on her own, hence the possible reason she was asked to downgrade her role on the show. Sheree’s pride got the best of her and she turned down that secondary role. Personally, I’m concerned about how she’s going to afford the baseboards and trim for that unfinished basement at Chateau Sheree. I’m also worried that there are no instigators left on this show.

Instagram Roundup

This week, your favorite reality TV stars were all about their love lives on Instagram.

Million Dollar Listing star Fredrik Eklund and his husband Derek Kaplan had an elaborate breakfast with their twin babies. Real Housewives of Potomac star Ashley Darby went rafting with her husband Michael Darby. Vanderpump Rules cast members James Kennedy and Raquel Leviss went to lunch with a friend. Terry Dubrow shared a selfie with is wife Heather Dubrow.

Real Housewives Of Atlanta Cast In Miami- Photos

The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast has begun shooting for Season 11. As of this moment, it’s a little bit unclear if Kenya Moore is in or out next season, but most of the Atlanta ladies went to Miami to support NeNe Leakes at her store opening.

Longtime Housewives Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, and Porsha Williams and previous Friends of the Housewives Marlo Hampton and Eva Marcille made the trip. Marlo and Eva have attended “cast” trips before even though neither of them has been a full-time cast member, so it’s tough to know who is a Real Housewife and who is along for the ride as a Friend of the Housewives. The casting mystery will not be completely solved until the season wraps and the first trailer is released. In the meantime, the fans are just left to speculate.

Reality Star Sightings

Happy Tuesday! We have an all-new group of reality star photos to share with you this afternoon!

The caption on this photo was just so good that I had to include it here. “Real Life Princess, Carole Radziwill Takes The First Ride In Dunkin Donuts Royal Carriage In Celebration Of The New Royal Love Donut In New York City on May 14, 2018 in New York City.” How lucky is RHONY to have a “real life princess”?

Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix enjoyed a little date night out at the KROQ Weenie Roast 2018 in Carson, California.

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss attended Exhibit Gray in Atlanta while her new reality TV cohort Marlo Hampton was seen at a Prom Giveaway at W Hotel Atlanta Midtown, as well as attending the Tammy Rivera EP Release Party for “FATE” at Dazzle Me Parties. 

Report: Kandi Burruss Producing Reality TV Show Staring Marlo Hampton

If Marlo Hampton ever opened up about her mysterious life on Real Housewives of Atlanta, it would make for a very interesting show. Unfortunately, there are just no straight answers with Marlo. Ever. Any time she “answers” a question, it just leads to more questions.

After all these years of making appearances on Real Housewives of Atlanta as a Friend of the Housewives, we still know nothing about her, let alone what she actually does for a living. Unfortunately, it just doesn’t look like Marlo will ever become a full-time cast member. Why hand her a peach when she’s willing to stir things up at a discounted rate? Fortunately, Marlo might be starring in a whole new reality TV show.
