Could it Be?

Marlo-Hampton-in-Gucci-Color-BlockGucci Spring 2011

Don't you love it, the beginning?  The early parts of a relationship, when it's new and unknown and every day is a revelation?  Did you see the look on my face, walking into the Bar One Party?  There is a calm that comes over you when you are with someone you care about and you feel safe with them.  When you've got your sexy dress on and you love being on his arm.  The beginning, when you want to support that person in what they do, nurture them, yelling at them to move away from the food so they can reach their fitness goals!  Were you laughing at that too?!  In the beginning, it feels just like,

You move me... I'm burning
Such passion I'm yearning
One thought keeps returning
Could it be... I'm in love?

~Minnie Ripperton

I like the beginning, it's what comes after that I sometimes don't like...You'll find the dress in my closet, waiting for one of you to wear it for someone worthy.

I know I have not yet answered your question.  Who is Marlo Hampton?  I promise that I will, if you promise to stay with me.  If you promise to be patient, I will reveal many things to you.  Like the fear of seeing yourself in a way you never have before.  Sleepless nights over not always being the best that you can be.  I wonder what you thought about it, what did you see that I could not see?  What would you like to see?

All I can say in my Rachel Zoe voice," I die" that outfit was gorg!!!
We all have a past but some are afraid to own it. You own your past and show women like myself and others that we dont have to be forever tied to our past. We can break FREE and become the person God always called us to be!

I had started a non profit years ago for young girls and became discouraged but after looking through your pictures you have inspired me to pick it back up and run with it.

Thank you Beatrice! That warms my heart and gives me courage. I wish you the best with your non-profit, young girls need you!

I must say when I first saw you on the show I thought, wow, another fake sistah looking for a come up. But I immediately thought, it's ridiculous to judge someone so quickly, so harshly with little or no inside information.

The biggest challenge with these reality shows is you never know what to expect. And I think that's the biggest problem you reality stars face when you make the decision to put your lives on notice for the world to see.

On the surface you definitely appear to have your stuff together, and from what I've seen on some of these sites, that is in fact, the case. My only advice would be to stay true to yourself.

Your new beau was spot on when he said the ATL was a fake city. If I were you, I'd do my best to show the world that you don't ascribe to that same creed.

I look forward to seeing more good things from you.

We do sign up for the criticisms don't we? You don't even know what you're in for until you see yourself on the screen and you want to just die! I want you all to get to know me. I promise, we will go deeper than fashion and reality tv soon...

Hi Marlo, I just stumbled across your blog through a link from Style me Prissy. I must say that I am very impressed with who you are. You seem to be a very real, warm and loving person. Not that you need validation from anyone.

I just wanted you to know since you have put yourself out here, we see you and we like what we see. Everyone has a past, the people who are turning up their nose at yours....let's just say, theirs has yet to be discovered. Continue to be the positive person that you are and inspire those who choose to follow your path.


P.S. There are no words for your style and you're my size!

Thank you Sheila for your encouragement and openness. It is wonderful to know my story might help or inspire others. I will definitely continue to stay positive even though it can be hard sometimes....
