The stars of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” posed side-by-side in complimentary outfits outside Leakes’ store, Swagg Boutique in the city of Duluth, Georgia, which is a suburb situated northeast of Atlanta.
“Just me and my ♠️” Leakes said in part of the photo caption in which she tagged Hampton, a longtime friend of “RHOA.”
Leakes also posted another set of photos outside the shop and teased in the caption, “Just a little photo shoot fo ya.”
In no time, fans heaped on the praise for the dynamic duo.
“Y’all look so good! 😩🔥”
“The new updated Frick and Frack 😂😂😂.”
“Squad. Love y’all. 👑”
“Y’all flexin on us🔥”
“They look good and if you think otherwise you’re a hater 🗣”
“You both look gorgeous in every pic 😍😍”
Hampton and Leakes go way back. While Leakes is the sole original housewife to have retained a spot on the show beginning in season 1, Hampton joined the longrunning series halfway through season 3 as a friend of the show before fluctuating between episode cycles as a guest in seasons 5-9. After that, Hampton reclaimed her friend of the show status and has stuck by Leakes’ side even when tensions flared during the season 11 reunion.
“After 11 seasons I finally realize that these girls are my co-workers,” Leakes said. “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.”
And while Leakes distanced herself from the majority of the cast, Hampton remained a constant in her life. Indicating Hampton was her ace, Leakes captioned a pic the pair snapped together in May, “♠️♠️♠️♠️♠️”
Fans immediately recognized what Leakes meant by the symbols.
“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 ❤️🌹”
More recently, however, it appears Leakes has begun to let bygones be bygones as Burruss told HollywoodLife the O.G. star has initiated patching things up with her cast mates.
