Real Housewives of Atlanta guest star Marlo Hampton does not understand why Nene Leakes no longer wants to be her friend, and is hurt by Leakes' decision to cut her out of her life.
While Nene Leakes, who was just announced as a new contestant on ABC's Dancing With The Stars, seems to be moving on from her friendship with her bridesmaid and longtime gal pal Marlo Hampton, her friend has not taken things so well.
In a new interview with Sister 2 Sister, Marlo Hampton revealed what may have been the initial cause of her explosive fight with Nene Leakes on the last episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, and how the two feel about each other now.
"I feel like I've been used; I really do. I was angry, but I'm hurt about it, too," Marlo revealed.
Just days before on her blog, she defended her actions during 'The Bailey Bowl' brawl, writing, "I wanted to initiate a truce... I have said many times I looked up to her like a big sister and valued our relationship, so I wanted to break the ice, kiss and make up. However, when the water was thrown at me, along with the nasty attitude, I wasn't having it!"
Hampton feels that she and Leakes' troubles started during New York Fashion Week, when Kenya Moore attended the BCBG fashion show that Leakes could not attend because she wasn't in town. Hampton did not know that Leakes had a problem with Moore at the time. "It wasn't like they were enemies; they talked. When I went to the fashion show, come to find out [it] was a problem," she said.
Now, after a vicious Twitter war during the last episode, it seems that the two will never quite be the same. Marlo confirmed of their last exchange a few days ago, "It ended with, 'Don't call me anymore. You're blocked,' from both of us."
Leakes tweeted on Feb. 24 after it aired on Bravo, "I will never have anything 2 do wit Manlow (Marlo) or Krayonce (Kenya) again n life! NEVER."
Fans can watch the rest of the drama play out on the new episode this Sunday, on Bravo at 8/9c when the cast goes to Mexico. Drama, indeed. Check out the preview, below.
