In spite of their differences, Eva Marcille would hate for NeNe Leakes to no longer be on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. In fact, she made it very clear during a new interview that her co-star would be greatly missed if it so happens that she exited the show.
This also comes as Kenya Moore stated that NeNe had been cut out of a lot of the season 12 episodes.
Eva thinks it would be no short of a ‘sad day’ if NeNe left and she really hopes that the other Housewife is not being ‘phased out’ although she really thinks she is!
This is what Eva revealed while chatting with Bravo boss Andy Cohen on his Watch What Happens Live talk show earlier this month!
Now, she tells HollywoodLife that ‘I pray not. I hope not. Now that would be sad [if NeNe left]. That would be a sad day for Housewives, because NeNe is NeNe.’
It was clear that even the idea in itself was hard to consider and felt upsetting to her.
After all, she has been part of RHOA ‘since day one,’ as Eva put it, so ‘Ups, downs, and round and round, the role has seen NeNe grow and evolve, and they root for her, and they laugh, and they know her and that’s their girlfriend. And so I think she would be extremely missed. I don’t want to see her go, because who’s going to fill those kind of shoes?’
The site wondered if anyone part of the cast is worried about being fired from the series after a couple of OGs from the franchise have left their jobs already, including Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson.
Eva responded that ‘You know what, it’s all about your contracts and what you’re trying to do. I think it ends up being, there are so many franchises, and there’s so many girls involved. You hear about all their contract stuff, and then the speculations, but I think Atlanta’s solid.’
