The cast members of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” are taking over the promo this season, and it’s just getting started. Season 14 of “RHOA” features veterans Shereé Whitfield, Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Drew Sidora and new housewife, Olympic gold medalist in track and field, Sanya Richards-Ross.
Ahead of Sunday’s premiere, the cast reportedly self-funded its promotional campaign which disputed the amounts paid by Bravo. And now the new Georgia peach has done the same. Fans have shown Marlo Hampton nothing but love since he transitioned as a supporting cast member for 13 seasons to officially get his peach in Season 14.
On Monday, the reality star shared a promotional video that shows her pushing a shopping cart full of peaches. In the short clip, she paired metallic Louboutin heels with a custom dress filled with images of some of her most memorable black-and-white “RHOA” moments.
‘I’ve always had the Juice, but now I have the Peach. #zoomin,” Hampton captioned the post. She also credited her entire glam team, including the dress designer Dana Dalton.
The 55-year-old linked the same caption to another image of her souvenir dress. “If doing the most was a person,” she captioned a separate Instagram post featuring behind-the-scenes footage.
Fans in the comments to Hampton’s post gushed about her creative dress, including Tami Roman, who said: “ATP [At this point], you are the most creative person I know. WOW, this dress. Here’s what others had to say.
“Oh you are the epitome of class and creative design. Come on @marlohampton.
“Marlo is making up for all the years she was denied fishing.”
“Marlo said I’d take all the peaches, thank you.”
“Just before the MET…ok Marlo.”
“Marlo has always been ahead of his time!!!!! #RHOARoyalty.
Some people took it further by referencing Kandi Burruss’ comments about how Hampton collects its parts. One person said, “Chili yes mum and keep Kandi funny wondering about your plays. No matter how much money they have, you still make them sweat.
The ladies brought sunshine and shade to the season 14 premiere of “RHOA” which aired on Sunday, May 1. Throughout the episode, teammate Kandi Burruss asked how Hampton supported herself financially. Discussing Hampton in her confessional, she said, “You must be better at handling money than her because you still have your billionaire boyfriend’s coins from ten years ago.”
Hampton was able to respond to the singer’s shady comments when she appeared on “Watch What Happens Live on Andy Cohen” later. She said, “You know what, Kandi, at the end of the day, it’s archive money. I know how to invest. It’s like that.”
“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” airs Sundays at 8 p.m. EST on the Bravo Network.
