Real Housewives Of Atlanta is returning for the 10th season, and as many of you already know, Eva Marcille from America’s Next Top Model is making her way onto the show. In a statement to Us Weekly, the reality star said she “was so excited to join NeNe and the ladies for the 10th season of Real Housewives Of Atlanta!”
The newest season will see the return of several original cast members including NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak.
As for the former Top Model competitor, Marcille has a daughter with her ex-boyfriend, Kevin McCall, who she broke up with back in 2015. She is known for winning the third round of America’s Next Top Model in 2004 before she started her acting career.
Fans might remember her on The Young And The Restless as Tyra Hamilton from 2008 until 2009. She also appeared in Crossover; I Think I Love My Wife and Sister Code.
Even though Marcille will only be a housewife for a short time, The Jasmine Brand reported that she would make approximately $100,000 per episode.
According to reports, her husband, Michael Sterling, is currently running for mayor of Atlanta and they don’t want her role on the series to distract him from his campaign.
It makes sense that Marcille won’t make herself a full-time cast member because the drama perpetrated by the RHOA cast-and-crew often includes, divorce, cheating, rumors, and more. BET reported that producers are crossing their fingers in the hope of Eva becoming a permanent member during the 11th season.
