Recently, Moore has been making it made it clear that she’s not a fan right now of her co-star, Marlo Hampton.
Despite Hampton finally becoming full-time in season 14 after 10 years on the show, Moore doesn’t feel the peach is deserved. In fact, Moore thinks Hampton is a copycat of previous housewives.

Hampton and Moore’s fallout will play throughout the current season but it appears it began when Hampton felt Moore was too critical of her business launch event for her fashion showroom, Le’ Archive. During a recent appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, Moore spoke about why she feels Hampton opted to become her nemesis this season.
For starters, she says she misses some of the OGs of the franchise because they were their authentic selves. “I definitely miss Porsha in general. What she brought to the show was different. What NeNe [Leakes] brought to the show was different and it’s unique, you can’t duplicate that,” she said.
Hampton on the other hand is not being herself and is instead trying to copy what’s been done before, at least according to Moore. “I think the problem with some of the girls this year, well I can just say one, like Marlo,” she explained. “You know, it’s trying to be like a NeNe, and you’ll never fill those shoes, so just stay in your lane. Or, you know, behind your bars.”
Marlo Hampton previously said Kenya Moore wasn’t happy about her getting a promotion to full-time status
Hampton has been on the show since Season 4 as a friend. Her relationship with Moore has been a rollercoaster but ahead of filming Season 14, it appeared they made peace. Clearly, it didn’t last long.
According to Hampton, Moore displayed behavior that made her feel like she was not happy about her being on the show in a full-time capacity. The Jasmine Brand reports that she said in one social media video: “Kenya, dagger to the heart. I’m here b*tch, move over, Moore! Make room diva! I feel that Kandi is happy but I feel that it was a shocker. I feel that Shereé is super excited about me having a peach.”
