‘Housewives’ continues ‘faggot’ debate [video]

Add this share

Never mind Marlo Hampton’s gay apology tour of sorts. Now, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” sidekick has to explain that she not only yelled “faggot” during a TV fight but that she lied about saying it after she apologized for saying it. We’re confused, too.

Hampton dropped the anti-gay f-bomb on the show’s Jan. 29 episode. It wasn’t until after the slur aired that Hampton apologized to the show’s gays, along with her gay supporters, and tried to walk it back. The gay sidekicks, Miss Lawrence and Derek J, came to Hampton’s defense.

Hampton continued her apology tour on Saturday by hosting the Labels Party for the gays. But on RHOA the very next day, there’s Hampton denying to Sheree Whitfield and Miss Lawrence (photo) that she ever said “faggot.” Watch the drama unfold in the video above, which also includes the original slur by Hampton.

Goodness, girl, really? You didn’t notice the cameras in the room either time? Of course, Hampton is apologizing again.

I did not want to lie. I wanted the opportunity to explain and to say sorry. But I couldn’t, because she was there, gloating, so eager to bring my mistake to light. I felt ambushed, backed into a corner. Her smiling face was so hateful, so cunning. What strikes me, is that her friend is not even her concern. In her enthusiasm to set me up, she actually delighted in causing him pain, by stating it was him I had directly talked about, when it was not. And as I watched her eyes sparkling with the taste of revenge, I chose to take her sense of schadenfreude away a little bit by denying what happened. I could not, in front of her, so thirsty to embarrass me, admit to my mistake.?

Think this subject came up during Bravo executive Andy Cohen’s trip to Atlanta – and stop at Blake’s — to tape the RHOA reunion? They should all just be like Kandi Burruss.
