Marlo Hampton

*Marlo Hampton is now apologizing for her behavior against former BFF NeNe Leakes, which played out on Sunday’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

The socialite felt NeNe was jealous of her budding friendship with Kenya Moore and confronted the fellow “tall,” comparing her hair to Donald Trump’s and even tossing a water bottle at her.

“I realize how we women sometimes tear each other apart in anger when in truth we’re really just feeling hurt or betrayed. But that’s not the woman I want to be,” Hampton wrote on her personal blog.

“Whether I want to be or not, I am a role model… I apologize for my part in this shameful drama that reinforces stereotypes about who we are as black women. And pray that one day we’ll realize nobody wins when even one of us loses.”

Hampton explained that her reaction was the result of feeling “knocked down.”

“I can’t fake hurt or anger because I’m human, and I’m always going to be real. And, while being betrayed by family or friend takes you there, retaliating with an equally inappropriate verbal or physical assault can never be justified. So I’m checking myself.

“Don’t get me wrong, I’m not backing down, giving up or punking out. Trust and believe, I will NOT be bullied at anytime by anyone! At the same time, I don’t want to BE a bully either,” Hampton added.
