'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' Season 14: Marlo disputes with Kenya about her nephews throughout their trip
Viewers have seen a lot this season, from the vibrating underwear fiasco to Shereé Whitfield and Drew Sidora's fight. A preview of 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' Season 14, Episode 11 reveals that the dispute between Marlo and Kenya is getting nastier as viewers prepare for a new episode on Sunday, July 24.
Kenya Moore and Marlo Hampton have been at odds for so long that pinpointing when and how things went wrong is tough. Marlo and Kenya were best friends in Season 6, unsettling NeNe Leakes, and ultimately causing the infamous Bailey Bowl incident. NeNe tossed a water bottle at Marlo and Marlo put an end to their years-long friendship. However, they subsequently reconciled. But Kenya and Marlo's relationship had reached an all-time low by season nine.

Marlo stated, during the season's glamping vacation that they fell out because she was not invited to Kenya's birthday and housewarming parties. To make matters worse, Kenya invited NeNe to her birthday party and uploaded a photo of the two of them together. Blasphemy. Marlo hurls comments after stating why her feelings were slighted, Kenya is unhappy, her lashes are a catastrophe, she needs a dermatologist, she can't retain a boyfriend, and so on. But Marlo's comment that “if a person’s mother don’t want to be bothered by them, you know something ain’t right … that’s how I know she’s evil” was the final nail in the coffin. Kenya and Marlo's relationship died in episode thirteen of season nine, and it will be remembered forever.
Marlo's friendship with Kenya is evolving into something more than invites to birthday parties and marching bands spoiling wig launches now that she is a full-time peach bearer rather than simply a "friend of." Marlo hit the ground running this season, spewing sh*t about Kenya, and practically every time they were at the same gathering, voices were raised as well as shots were fired. Kenya can do nothing right in Marlo's eyes, and even catching a cold has been used to declare Kenya a liar. Kenya isn't entirely blameless in the back and forth, but Marlo is usually the one who takes things too far.
Marlo leaves it to Kenya after giving her the ultimatum that if she does not stay with the girls at Marlo's place while they are on vacation, she will be barred from engaging in any other activities. A teaser of the forthcoming episode shows Marlo standing by her words that if Kenya does not show up at her house, she will not hesitate to cut her off from the entire vacation. Kenya, who reveals that is living just down the street at her own lake house in Blue Ridge, makes her way to Kenya's place early in the morning. She tries to remain calm and act as if nothing has occurred, but things quickly turn sour.
Things get heated when Sanya informs Marlo that Kenya has an opinion about her and her nephews and that this causes her to avoid her. As heated words are exchanged, Kandi confronts Kenya about why she is purposely poking people to irritate them when she complains about not liking being treated that way herself. Kenya expresses her displeasure when others insult her. She goes on to say that as long as someone is courteous to her, she will respect them.
Marlo lashes out at Kenya for speaking about her nephews while she is away, as well as going up to the place by herself, although she is the one who invited everyone and drove them there. As Kenya proceeds to leave, Marlo reminds her to not speak of her nephews ever again. She further adds that no one in the group will take her away from the boys when Kenya reverts, saying it can't happen because she already gave them away (referring to Marlo kicking her nephews out in the earlier episodes). This further irks Marlo, and she calls Kenya "bit*h" and "trashy."
