Marlo Hampton is defending herself following Sunday’s dramatic episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Hampton, who is a friend to the show, is receiving heat for choosing to share some gossip told to her by one of Eva Marcille’s bridesmaids. Apparently, the bridesmaid’s name is Seannita, a former friend of Marcille’s, who claimed the former Next Top Model and her new husband were broke. The rumor eventually reached Marcille later in the episode, forcing her to snatch off her mic and flee filming.
NowHampton is claiming that she did nothing wrong by choosing to share what she had learned with the group.
“So because I bring info to the group I’m messy, unhappy & jealous, PLEASE! I stated what the streets was saying, just like these girls have done to me for the last 6 years,” Hampton stated Monday in a lengthy post on Instagram.
”However this tea came with RECEIPTS, so why would I not bring it to her Big Sis who could let her know her business was being spread by her supposed best friends & bridesmaids. Even some of her so-called new friends were giggling when they heard the tea, but so concerned when spilling it to her,” she added.
Hampton further went on to defend herself against some of the rumors that have been spoken against her by other RHOA co-stars over the years.
“I’ve endured so many nasty LIES about me in this group of women, I date old white men, I’m a prostitute,” she wrote. “NO — What I am is a single woman that dates men that I’m attracted to of any color!”
Hampton also seemed to defend the reason that she was not married yet, adding that she has “survived this far & doing damn good.”
“I’ll take that step, when the time is right, for the right reasons,” she added.
