Just when we thought Real Housewives Of Atlanta was only bringing back oldies but goodies like NeNe Leakes, come rumors that casting is in full force and at the top of the list is former America’s Next Top Model winner Eva Marcille!
According to sources producers have asked Eva to do some test filming with the cast to see how she fits in, re: can she cause drama or not?! Apparently they’re bored with the directions of Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams‘s storylines, and Bravo is considering replacing at least one of them with someone fresh, new, and young.
Actually Eva, who used to go by Eva Pigford, sounds like she leads an interesting life! She’s in a serious relationship with Atlanta politician and mayoral candidate Michael Sterling. She also has a daughter, Marley, with her ex-boyfriend, singer-songwriter Kevin McCall. It seems like Eva would have genuine social connections with many of the current cast, which is refreshing.
Sources share that so far Eva has shot some scenes at NeNe’s house and the ANTM season 3 winner was reportedly getting along great with the queen peach.
TMZ reports that the producers are looking for natural “chemistry and drama” and they’re expecting Eva’s volatile ANTM personality to transition to Bravo. Well, if they’re looking for exciting it seems like Cynthia would be the most likely Housewife to replace, however conundrum: Cynthia is once again NeNe’s main sidekick! Also an interesting aside – Eva also owns an eyewear company, like Cynthia does!
NeNe has made no secret that she wants Porsha gone, but for whatever it’s worth Porsha has caused plenty of drama over the seasons and after the insane way last season ended, I simply cannot see producers letting her go yet!
TELL US – DO YOU THINK EVA WOULD BE A GOOD FIT FOR RHOA?!
