Leakes shared a photo of the two ladies appearing to be filming green screen shoots for the long-running Bravo series.
In the caption of the duo embracing each other, Leakes indicated Hampton is her ace with the caption “♠️♠️♠️♠️♠️ @marlohampton.”
Fans commented about the duo’s enduring friendship.
“True Definition Of Ride Or Die @marlohampton ❤️”
“Y’all two have and will forever be my FAVS! I LOVE ME SOME NENE & MARLO! #RHOAATL #FloridaNative #ATLresidence @neneleakes @marlohampton ❤️🌹”
“@neneleakes can we get a spin-off with you and @marlohampton. Okrrr.”
Bailey and Sam eagerly shared the pics the trio snapped together on their respective Instagram pages that night. But Hampton didn’t upload hers until Tuesday. Several fans warned that Hampton would get a strict talking-to from Leakes since she played nice with the women. Leakes famously relegated Sam and Bailey to simply being her “co-workers” rather than her friends or “sister,” as Bailey used to be considered.
“After 11 seasons I finally realize that these girls are my co-workers,” Leakes explained on Instagram Live in March after the tense “RHOA” reunion filmed. “They all were trying to secure the bag because half of them are boring so they had no other choice but to come for me — they tried to come [for me], how ’bout that.”
Yet, throughout the tense reunion, Hampton remained by Leakes’ side, even when she told her guarded pal she should hear out the other cast members.
But Leakes stuck to her guns, and after taping concluded she went and unfollowed each one of her co-stars except for two: Hampton and Shamari DeVoe.
“They all needed to say something … And they only way of thinking they can step up is to step to me … [to] make the executives pay them some attention,” she said on Instagram Live, explaining why she cleared her cast members from her feed. “So a lot of the girls tried to secure the bag because their bags are just not quite secured. I don’t have to follow them on social media. It’s not that big of a deal to me. I don’t want to see their s—.”
