RHOA guest Marlo Hampton keeps conversation in the closet

Marlo Hampton, a sometime guest on RHOA Season 8, has taken matters into her own hands and launched her own show on YouTube.

Hampton claimed earlier this year that former cast member Nene Leakes had contacted Bravo to prevent her from appearing on the show during season 7. She did re-appear on the season 8 premiere as a guest.

Rodney Ho says on the AJC Radio and TV Talk Blog that she was considered for cast membership in season 4 but didn't make the cut .

So she has launched her own show and she's the star.

Marlo's Closet launched last week featuring Hampton talking about friendship with two of her buddies in her closet. She also had her hairdresser on the show to reveal her hair secrets. The series is filmed in her closet where she sits and sips adult beverages as she interviews friends and colleagues.

In addition to her part-time appearances on RHOA, Hampton is also a fashion contributor for 11Alive’s Atlanta and Co.

New episodes of #MarlosCloset are supposed to air every week following The Real Housewives of Atlanta but so far there only appears to be one episode available. Here's a look:

Season 8 of RHOA kicked off earlier this month with a few new cast members including Kim Fields. Read all about it and get a recap of the most recent episode here:  ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ (‘Duking It Out’): season 8, episode 2
