Former “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Marlo Hampton has quite the reputation when it comes to her romantic life and it’s safe to say that most people associate the name Marlo Hampton with, well, being a gold digger. However, according to Hampton, she is not an opportunist and she’s not looking to take a man for everything he has.
All season long on “I Dream Of NeNe,” Hampton and her fellow bridesmaid Diana Gowins have been at each other’s throats and Gowins has claimed on many occasions that Hampton sleeps with men for money. But in a recent interview with CocoaFab.com, Hampton denies the claims and says that she simply has high standards.
“Diana says I just sleep with such and such for my lifestyle. It’s not that sweetie, I just have standards. I can do bad my my d— self,” Hampton said, although she advises women to appreciate the finer things in life as well as a man with money.
“When you look like money, you attract money. Hand out at nice locations where you will attract nice things,” she explains. “I’m a five star chick and I’m gonna hang out at all five star.”
However, Hampton says that money isn’t everything when it comes to relationships.
“I’m gonna tell you this. If I find a guy and he’s broke and I really love him, I hope he has fashion sense. I’m OK with it if he has that drive to get out there and work,” said Hampton.
The fashionista even took it a step further and claimed that she was actually a sugar mama at one point.
“When I dated Charles Grant, he wasn’t loaded. I had more money than he did at the time. I was taking care of him,” she revealed. “I was really attracted to him and we related on a different level.
However, Hampton now says that her sugar mama days are over.
“I don’t want a broke man to sit at my house all day. I’m not gonna be taking care of a man,” she said. “He better be able to at least feed me and pay for a roof over my head.”
Well, that still sounds dangerously close to the descriptor of a gold digger or at least a woman with the highest financial standards. Check out some other celebs who have been accused of being gold diggers below. – nicholas robinson
