Perhaps the most impressive thing about Marlo Hampton is that she revealed her criminal background on live television. Now, at first glance, one might not have expected such an admission from the new breakout star of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta. In spite of that past she’s done pretty well for herself. Life hasn’t been easy for Marlo, who grew up in St. Petersburg, FL. But instead of waiting to be rescued, she rescued herself. Her confidence shows on screen as one of the members of “The Talls,” a group comprised of the tall women of the RHOA cast – NeNe Leakes, Cynthia Bailey and Marlo. Recently, UPTOWN got the chance to speak with Marlo about her new status on the show and her fashion – but we didn’t dare ask her where her money came from.
