AceShowbiz - NeNe Leakes wouldn't let a friend taking a verbal beating, even if it comes from another close friend of hers. After Marlo Hampton told Eva Marcille to "take off 10 pounds" just before her wedding, the 51-year-old cast member of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star was quick to put her co-star back in her place.
In the latest episode of the reality series, the 51-year-old TV personality could be seen berating her good friend after the latter fat-shamed their co-star Eva. "B***h you need to f**king stop b***h with your big a**, ginormous a**, humongous-a** hips," she fumed. "B***h eating cake, sandwiches, ice cream late at night. Going to the gas station for potato chips, lollypops..."
The episode aired on December 30 saw Eva trying on wedding dress for her upcoming nuptials to Michael Sterling, and NeNe brought along Marlo to the dress fitting. Instead of helping, Marlo was quick to offend Eva by pointing out the flaw in the latter's long-sleeved brocade dress. "I just want ten pounds off," she said.
NeNe expressed her regret over Marlo's insensitive comment in the After Show segment. "Eva was getting married. I had my huge wedding and I got married and that wasn't that long ago. I knew Marlo knew fashion because Marlo helped me with my wedding and the looks that we should have. I knew she had a good eye," she explained. "[But] Marlo was giving a lot. Every bride wants everything to be perfect and Marlo doesn't even understand that."
Eva herself didn't hide the fact that she was hurt by Marlo's comment. Sitting down with co-star Tanya Sam for an After Show session, the former winner of "America's Next Top Model" roasted Marlo back. "I was smaller than Marlo at my heaviest than Marlo was at her smallest, but she thinks that I need to lose 10 lbs? The circumference of her a** is the size of this table, and I reminded her of that right there because I guess she forgot putting her pants on that morning," Eva sarcastically said.
