Leakes posed with her pal, Hampton, along with newcomer to the series Shamari DeVoe, for a mini photo-op inside Leakes’ store. As the ladies posed inside Swagg Boutique on Tuesday, Oct. 30, fans praised but largely panned Hampton’s look.
“I love Marlo’s hair!”
“Nene is a true friend she came up and brought her bestie Marlo along with her ✌2 beautiful black queens👑”
Then, some hate came through.
“Marlo still look like James Amos tho 🤷🏽♂️”
“Either Marlo got a new face or she needs to fire that makeup artist for contouring her nose like that😂.”
“Is that Marlo? Why can’t I tell if that Marlo? 🤔”
“😲The hell marlo do? I didn’t even recognize her …”
“That’s is not know damn Marlo @marlohampton is that you sis😳🧐”
Fans also speculated the stylist had gone under the knife.
“When you get light skin Marlo😕🤔🤷♀️??”
“I did not recognize Marlo..sniff sniff…i smell face lift and skin bleaching in the air.”
“Did marlo do something to her face?”
“Got that nose pinched huh Marlo??”
“What has Marlo done to her face”
Hampton’s look certainly is a significant change from her typical long, dark hair. But the star has also switched up more than just her wigs. She’s embarked on a weight loss journey that saw her drop some major pounds.
“@marlohampton has been training about 3-4 times a week, intermittent fasting for 16 hours a day AND eating a high protein diet, mid/low carbs & low fats; not to mention wine daily & occasional fried food meals ,” Hampton’s trainer, @iamthekingoffitness, wrote on Instagram Oct. 21. “😡 🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️HOWEVER, In less than 30 days, she’s made a noticeable difference on the scale, in her face, her arms & her DEFINITELY some definition in her midsection. 🔥🔥🔥 #teamlovelybodies #revengebodyexpert #lovelybodiesatlanta #WNM.”
