Marlo Hampton Sends Support for BFF NeNe Leakes Following 'RHOA' Lawsuit

Also responding to the legal drama is the former 'The Real Houswives of Atlanta' star's off-again friend Kandi Burruss, who is reluctant to comment on the matter.

AceShowbiz - Marlo Hampton reacts to NeNe Leakes suing the team behind "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" for alleged racism. When asked about the matter, Marlo appears to keep tight-lipped even though she shows support for her friend and former "RHOA" co-star.

"You know, we're going to leave that where it's at," the 46-year-old reality TV star told Extra during an interview on Wednesday, April 27. "Just sending my sister some love and kisses, and we're gonna keep talking about me and my peach and how it's my time to shine, baby."

Also responding to the legal drama was NeNe's off-again friend Kandi Burruss. Refusing to comment on it, the XScape singer told Page Six on Tuesday, "I don't think anything [of it]." The 45-year-old musician continued, "I don't have anything to say about it. Never! Absolutely have no opinion."

Earlier this month, NeNe, who left "RHOA" back in September 2020, filed a lawsuit against Andy Cohen and Bravo as she accused them of "encouraging" racism on the show. In the docs that she filed on April 20, the TV personality, who is black, claimed that the team ignored her complaints about years of racist remarks from her former co-star, Kim Zolciak-Biermann.

She alleged that during the fifth season in 2012, Kim made "racially offensive and stereotypical" comments about her and Kandi, calling her neighborhood a "ghetto." In the same year, Kim reportedly used the N-word to refer to the "Glee" alum and other black housewives in a dispute.

NeNe shared in her suit that she sent complaint to the executives about Kim's behavior. Despite her complaint, they "did not terminate their relationship with Zolciak-Biermann, nor take any other meaningful action to put an end to her racially-offensive behavior" and rewarded her own spin-off series instead.

She also claimed that the executives stopped her from showing her support for the Black Lives Matter movement by keeping her off episodes where the housewives addressed the matter. "As the Black Lives Matter movement swept our nation, Mrs. Leakes - Bravo's historically most successful Black female talent - should have been embraced by NBC, Bravo, and True," the suit read. "Instead, NBC, Bravo, and True forced her out of the 'house she built,' denying her a regular role."

NeNe is suing for an unspecified amount to be decided upon during trial.
