Real Housewives of Atlanta star Marlo Hampton has secured her peach as a full-time Housewife during Sunday night’s premiere of season 14. The reality star also threw shade at fellow cast members Kandi Burruss and Kenya Moore while dishing on former friend Porsha Williams’ engagement to Simon Guobadia.
Hampton seemingly criticized her castmates at a high-fashion event for the Le’ Archive clothing line, saying that Sidora wouldn’t “understand” the exhibit. However, she was surprised “money girls” Burruss and Moore had questions about it.
The reality star also appeared on Instagram Live, where she discussed the validity of her former friendship with Williams and her relationship with her fiance Guobadia.

“I don’t f*** with her, but I don’t think that’s real,” said Hampton. “Porsha likes fine [men], but guess what? Good storyline. That’s like me dating Dennis. That’s some s** you just don’t do.”
One fan asked Hampton her thoughts on the couple after reaching their 1-year mark in the relationship.
“Well, as long as his money doesn’t run out, they definitely have what it takes, ” said Hampton. “That’s just what I think. You asked what do I think. I think as long as this money keeps flowing, they’re good to go.”
Hampton and Williams were no longer friends after their falling out in season 13 after she accused Williams of being the “fakest of them all” following her accusations with Strippergate.
Williams hasn’t publicly commented on Hampton’s recent statements regarding their friendship and her engagement.
The 46-year-old former supporting cast member recalled the moment she received her peach during an exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly, her expectations for the new season, and family life.
When asked what took so long for her to receive the long-awaited recognition, Hampton responded, “I don’t know, but it happened. It happened and let’s just be thankful we got it, okay? [Laughs]”
Now that viewers can see Hampton as a full-time cast member, she said fans are “going to be excited to finally get to see everything. You get me being a full-time muntie. You see me as a sister, as a daughter, as a friend. You just get all of Marlo. I mean, is that not something amazing?” she said explained.
During the interview, Hampton opened up about her new role as a “muntie,” a term she coined by taking on the responsibilities as a mother while gaining full custody of her older sister’s children.
According to previous reports, Hampton’s older sister was admitted to a mental hospital for bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, and Hampton was awarded full custody of Michael, 14 and William, 13. She explained how her life has been as a full-time “muntie.”
“Oh my god, what has it been like?! What hasn’t it been like? It’s been amazing. It’s totally different,” she explained. It’s opened me up to see that there’s just so much of Marlo I didn’t even know existed. It’s like I’m doing everything a mom does, but I’m an auntie: “Say your prayers. Brush your teeth. Did you take your vitamins? Have you turned in your work? Did you study? Did you drink your water?” I think it was much needed. Because now, when I make decisions, I always put Michael and William first. So it’s a great thing, and I’m just happy to be where I’m at right now.
In the meantime, Hampton said her sister “has to work on herself. So we’re just letting her work on herself, so she can get back strong and hopefully come back and get involved in the boys’ lives.”
