During the last RHOA episode, Eva told Porsha Williams that she couldn’t invite any of her friends around. Specifically, Eva alluded to Porsha’s friend Shamea Morton. Just in case anyone forgot, Shamea spread rumors that Eva was in a relationship with Missy Elliott last season. Shamari DeVoe officially joined the cast during that episode as well. She got the seal of approval from Eva. Eva should have just stopped there. Instead she ended up majorly shading Shamea.
During the episode, Eva declared, “I like her friends. Kandi [Burruss] can always invite the friends.” Well, Kandi didn’t exactly invite her friend. Shamari signed a contract to be a Housewife. She had to appear at some point.
Anyway. NeNe Leakes pointed out to Eva, “Shamea is [Kandi’s] friend.” Porsha told Eva, “You don’t know her yet.”
Eva responded, “I don’t, but Blaque is cute. She’s black. She’s snatched. She’s married. Shamea black too. She ain’t Blaque with a ‘q.'” For the record, Blaque is the name of Shamari’s girl group.
Kandi called her out immediately. Kandi told Eva, “You are being shady as f*ck right now.”
Kandi wondered “What did you mean by ‘Shamea is black, but not with a q’? I’m hoping she did not mean because she’s dark skinned. I did not like that. I like you, but I did not like that.”
Eva denied this in an Instagram post. She wrote, “Saying she’s not black with a Q clearly means she’s not in a singing group. Never in 1 million years was I talking about skin color and how Kandi got that from what I said I’m still confused.”
Eva added, “Colorism is a huge issue in the black community. It is extremely irresponsible to insinuate that what I was saying had anything to do with skin color.”
As of this moment, no one else in the cast has addressed Eva’s remark. Maybe they will at the Season 11 reunion.
TELL US- DID IT SEEM LIKE EVA MARCILLE WAS TALKING ABOUT SKIN COLOR? DID KANDI BURRUSS JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS? IS EVA A GOOD HOUSEWIFE?
