What Does Marlo Hampton Do For A Living?



BravoTV.com:
For years, one question has plagued fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta like no other: What exactly does Marlo Hampton do for a living? Many have posed that question since we first met Marlo on RHOA, including her fellow Georgia Peaches. However, we haven't really been able to get to the heart of Marlo's career — that is, until now. 

When The Daily Dish caught up with Marlo earlier this season, she called the speculation surrounding her occupation "just crazy." She also has an explanation for why it may seem like she has a multitude of diverse interests. Marlo has described herself as everything from a style maven to an etiquette expert over the years, after all. "I'm an Aquarius. You always have to have 50 different things going on — not one, two, three, four, five," Marlo explained. "If it ain't 50 or more, something's wrong."

Well, Marlo doesn't have quite 50 jobs, but she's pretty darn close. Find out all of the ways that Marlo spends her days, below.

She's a Designer

Marlo doesn't just wear other people's clothes; she also designs her own. She's launching an accessories brand called Arie and Emma, which is named after her grandmother and mother, respectively, that will include sunglasses and jewelry. You can get in touch with your shady self by purchasing some fierce T-shirts that feature the words "The Shade Is Real" and Marlo's fabulous face through her website now.

Marlo thanks her grandmother Arie and mother Emma for her passion for fashion. "Both of them are always fabulous at church with the big hats, the jewelry, so it's literally in my DNA," she told The Daily Dish. 

Marlo has been sharing her sartorial expertise with the world as a stylist with the majority of her work being done as a "ghost stylist," kind of like a ghostwriter where it's not publicly known that you're providing styling services for an individual. "I like that better. I feel good when I see my work out there," she said. "I just give them a wink, 'Hey, thanks for the check. You look fabulous.'" 

She Owned a Boutique
