According to sources, there’s a shake-up over at ‘The Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ and it involves Eva Marcille.
TMZ reports that producers for the show’s highly anticipated 10th season are keen on the ‘America’s Next Top Model’ winner. So much so that she’s already filming “test scenes” with a returning NeNe Leakes.
A selection of prior recruits have had suspect/non-existent ties to ATL pre-joining the show, but Eva’s connection is rock solid. The LA native has been in a long-term relationship with Atlanta based politician Michael Sterling.
The idea, production sources say, is to have her potentially replace Cynthia Bailey or Porsha Williams – two names said to be in danger of reduced roles due to a lack of storyline.
It’s worth stressing that there have been many a lady who’ve filmed with the cast, sometimes for much of the season, only to be edited out almost entirely come airtime.
That said, Eva would make an excellent addition. At least on paper.
She’s sassy, intelligent, and has an established profile. Crucially, from a storyline standpoint, she also has a lot going on too – namely her budding acting career, a bae, a daughter, and a touch of “baby daddy drama” with Kevin McCall.
It’s a hard call establishing who she’d be a good replacement for.
At 32, she brings the youth appeal Porsha is loved for; while her ‘ANTM’ background makes her a natural successor to former model Cynthia.
Whatever the case, we’d love to see Eva The Diva on the ‘Housewives.’ Would you?
