Real Housewives of Atlanta’s top dog NeNe Leakes decided to throw around her star power, when she allegedly demanded that Bravo not invite her former BFF Marlo Hampton to the reunion taping, RadarOnline.com has been told.
According to production sources, Leakes refused to attend if Hampton had any involvement.
“NeNe wants nothing to do with her, so she made a few phone calls and demanded that Marlo not be there,” the insider told Radar.
A Housewives pal added: “It’s a shame, but she always gets her way… By cutting off Marlo, she’s able to keep telling her side of story [about their feud] and doesn’t have to confront any of Marlo’s questions or allegations.”
As fans witnessed this season, Hampton confronted Leakes at The Bailey Bowl over their fallout and hurled a water bottle at her former BFF, looking to fight. To the surprise of many viewers, Leakes chose not to retaliate and walked away.
“Perhaps it’s a good thing Marlo wasn’t there or maybe there would have been two brawls at the reunion,” the source joked.
As fans witnessed Porsha Williams violently attack on Kenya Moore during the first part of the reunion. The fight resulted in Moore charging Williams with battery and a subsequent arrest warrant being issued. Williams turned herself in and was booked not long after.
