Eva Marcille Reveals Why She Joined The Real Housewives Of Atlanta!

As previously reported, Eva Marcille will make appearances this season on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Now, the former America's Next Top Model winner gets candid and reveals why she decided to be a part of the Bravo hit reality series and how she fits in with the group.

“I thought it was kind of cool to be a part of a world where I am different and show a different perspective,” she said. “I’m a young mom, and aside from Kandi Burress, no one has a kid as young as my daughter, and now I’m expecting a new child. And then I turn 33-years-old on the show, so I’m extremely young trying to figure this thing out,” she told OK! Magazine. “I’ve met the love of my life and trying to make things work things out between he and I, so I thought it was cool to be part of this circle because I did bring a different dynamic than already existed. I think we meshed really well.”

Eva reveals that her friend NeNe Leakes was the one who encouraged her to be a part of the show.

“I’m good friends with NeNe Leakes and I was one of the girlfriends that she would call when she came to LA,” Eva told OK! Magazine. “All these years later, we have kept in touch and become good girlfriends. I started dating a guy in Atlanta and found myself here often and decided to move here. So in making that decision, I remember talking to NeNe and letting her know that I was looking to move and get her assistance to help navigate through the city as a young mom and a newly taken woman. So she jumped to the challenge and introduced me to a couple of her friends, and I was extremely fortunate to have a group of girls to learn from and hang out with.”

shocked fans when it was revealed she would be joining the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Season 10 already was highly anticipated due to popular former housewives NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak announcing their return to the franchise.

So news of Eva making appearances throughout the season made things even juicier! The model and actress spoke with OK! Magazine exclusively about her latest television gig and how she feels about being a part of the cast.
