Carlos King says Marlo Hampton and Kandi Burruss Beef are forced

Former The real housewives franchise producer Carlos King went to YouTube to share his take on the heated argument that turned almost physical Atlanta Stars, Kandy Burruss And Marlo Hampton. The dispute began after Burruss received word that Hampton had issues with how she had dealt with the murder of her nephew Quinten, who was working at Burruss’ restaurant at the time of his death in 2020. King expressed the opinion that the sensitive topic unfairly resurfaced was a ploy to upset Burruss and create a headline-worthy moment for the Bravo reality series.


The episode revealed previously unreleased footage from 2020 showing Burruss offering her condolences to Hampton shortly after the tragedy. At the time, she failed to make it clear to Burruss that as a friend or as Quinten’s employer, she felt that she hadn’t done enough to support her in her grieving process. The subject has not been discussed on camera since, leading King to believe the interaction was planned in advance to create drama with Hampton and the production.

“Marlo’s grief is hers, and it’s not our job to tell her when or not to get over something,” King said in a video posted to YouTube. “…Well, based on everything presented tonight, I don’t think Kandi did anything wrong.

He said that while Burruss is Hampton’s nephew, she bears no responsibility for what happened to him outside of work. Therefore, Hampton’s argument that Burruss should have had a financial stake in the burial proceedings is not only disingenuous but also confusing.

King said it seems like producers are looking for “low-hanging fruit” to use against Burruss. He also added that many of her castmates would be more than willing to throw Burruss under the bus because they’re reportedly unhappy with how much money she’s making from the show — and that Burruss doesn’t bring enough consistent drama to the table, to earn so much . “Based on my experience as the king of reality TV, I’ll tell you all grasp at straws because everyone wants to see Kandi enabled. I don’t want her activated because of her grief,” the former producer said.

King added that RHOA and its sister series aren’t meant to be gritty, and taking the drama to such a serious place isn’t what fans want or what Burruss should reasonably expect during filming. He gave examples like No Leakes When Burruss was late leaving for her trip to Savannah, Georgia in Season 6 and the shadow that followed, this is an example of the type of bickering that the show is so well known and loved for. This topic, on the other hand, went far beyond the limit.

He added that next week’s episode preview doesn’t give him the impression that the rest of the season will go in a direction that he’ll enjoy as a viewer, but he hopes he’s wrong in that assessment The real housewives of Atlanta We will find a way to fix this incident in the future.
