Who is Marlo Hampton? One thing is certain, Ms. Marlo cannot be summed up in a word although stunning, dynamic, resilient, brave and determined are few descriptions that fit this super star in the making. We all know her as the sassy and self-assured fashion maverick on Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta and the girl we loved or loved to hate on I Dream of NeNe. But her portrayal in these roles barely scratch the surface of who she is and the star power she exudes. Once you meet Marlo you know there is something special about this southern beauty from St. Petersburg, FL. She is very comfortable in her skin. Although one look in her eyes lets you know there’s more to this diva than a great wardrobe and a bright smile. She’s been through some things and life hasn’t always been kind. But she’s a fighter and more importantly, a shining example of what it means to be a true survivor. As a child Marlo Patrice Hampton was a ward of the state who grew up in the foster care system due to her mother’s drug addiction and abuse. However, even this did not dim her light. To cope with her situation she developed a love for fashion and a sense of style that has made her one of the most sought after stylist on the fashion scene today.

“‘The Hamptons,’ my home, it’s just Marlo,” she told Home & Design. “It’s sexy. You have black flowers, you have black candles. It’s just a groovy, eclectic style. Like, you don’t know what you’re going to get. You’re going to come over here and see a tree branch. You might have a ham hanging over here if I could’ve gotten that blinged-out ham from Barcelona, that would have been amazing. So my home is just all over the place, like me. But it’s amazing. It’s a piece of art.” (Source: www.wiki.ng)
