The newest addition to the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” clan is speaking out before the season even gets started. Marlo Hampton, who is dating and reportedly engaged to cast member NeNe’s alleged ex boo, Charles Grant, is addressing the reports of her past 7 arrests. Read on…

Marlo speaks out regarding the charges of weapon possessions, probation violations, and assaults.

“It has come to my attention that some of my past indiscretions have come to light. Let me first state that I am not ashamed of my past as that has helped me become a better woman today. We all have a past and my hard-knock childhood in and out of the Foster Care system is a reflection on a bigger issue we are faced with here in America, a broken Foster Care system. My present charge in life is to live with God in my heart and help young women especially from the foster care system avoid the challenges I faced. I’m more then just what is being said of me and I have a story to tell.” — Marlo Hampton
