Marlo Hampton… finger pointin’ at Sheree Whitfield. Is that the correct, proper etiquette way to point a finger while screeching at a fellow Housewife… in the stairwell of the nice hotel that BravoAndy is payin’ for???
From VibeVixen (great site for the ATL Housewives!):
It is with great disappointment in myself and sincere regret that I would like to issue to my friends, my most ardent supporters, and my followers, this statement:
I would like to offer from the bottom of my heart the fullest and most heartfelt apology for my recent use of an anti-gay slur. When I used this word, I was not mindful of the demeaning connotation that this has in the gay community. My speech was irresponsible, thoughtless and said with the intention of conveying anger rather than as a statement on my feelings towards the gay community as a whole.
My first action, after the incident was to contact my closest friend and assistant of 8 years and to confess what I had done, to express my sadness and regret, and to ask him for his forgiveness. I was devastated at the thought of having hurt or embarrassed him as well as any member of the gay community and relish this opportunity to publicly apologize. My friends have embraced me, supported me, withheld judgment of me and have meant a lot to me over the years. I would never abuse their kindness and friendship and would never want to hurt them or demean them in any way.
I applaud and admire this community for their triumph over a sometimes harsh, mean spirited society that discriminates and even violently attacks those who are different. These are obstacles that I relate to and that I have been inspired by them to overcome. I celebrate this community and am saddened by any indication otherwise, that my actions may have caused. More from Marlo’s boudoir … here.
NOTE: Certainly Miss Marlo meant no harm! Miss Marlo probably just let it slip her lil mind that her boss, Miss Andy Cohen, is an outspoken member of the community which she insulted. Poor Marlo!
