Few “Real Housewives of Atlanta” blowups have been bigger this year than the one between former BFFs Marlo Hampton and NeNe Leakes, who began feuding on camera after Hampton befriended Leakes’ latest enemy, Kenya Moore. But after hurling online jabs at each other for weeks, Hampton recently decided to bury the hatchet and apologized to Leakes for the beef.

Hampton apologized to Leakes late last month via her blog, explaining to readers that she was ashamed of her behavior and how it’s influencing other young women.

“I don’t want to be a diva who seeks to destroy another with words or “reads” while the crowds cheer on our blood sport ratchetness. No one wins, except the ratings of course! Believe me, I’m not mad about that, (no ratings, no show)! I just think we have more to offer. Don’t you agree?” Hampton wrote.

“Whether I want to be or not, I am a role model to my glam it up girls, nieces, goddaughters and other young women who are watching and imitating my behavior. I need to do better,” Hampton added. “I can’t promise you I’ll turn the other cheek if I’m slapped, (don’t suggest anyone try me; I’m not there yet) but be patient y’all, God is still working on me!”

Hampton then went on to apologize to Leakes and the entire cast of “RHOA” for her bad behavior.

“To all the RHOA/bridesmaids I have offended: Phaedra, Kandi, Kim, Sheree, Diana, Pat and NeNe, I apologize. We may never be friends or see eye to eye on anything, (and I’m cool with that) however, I don’t need to tear you down to build myself up. I know who I am – The Diva, Marlo Patrice Hampton and I am the spotlight, but so are you. Let’s all bask in it. God made sure there would be enough shine for all of us,” Hampton wrote.

Leakes has directly commented on Hampton’s apology, but on the same day Hampton posted it to her site, Leakes posted this tweet online.

Well, we doubt that Leakes and Hampton will ever be friends again, but we hope they at least stop tearing each other down in public. Check out some other broken reality TV friendships below. – nicholas robinson
