Shakeups have been rumored regarding the cast of RHOA and now we’re getting some confirmation. After three seasons on the hit Bravo show, Eva Marcille has announced her departure. So what went into her descision?
The Atlanta Star announced her decision on the “Ricky Smiley Morning Show” where she shared:
“I appreciate the bond of friendship that I’ve made with my castmates and strong personal relationships I have with numerous executives and producers of Bravo. I am thankful for the opportunity I was provided, however, after speaking with my family and representatives, I believe that what I hope to accomplish for the culture and community will be better served by focusing on other opportunities. I look forward to serving the community on ‘Ricky Smiley Morning Show’ and finding other ways to be a voice during this transformational time during our country for people of color.”
It seems that Eva had both political and personal reasons as she added: “I believe my time is up. I have a 6-year-old daughter and two young boys still in diapers. They are 24 hours a day and there is a lot of work to be done. I decided to spend my time and energy focusing on my kids and my community and not so much reality show business.”
Despite her departure, Eva has nothing but love for the ladies stating: “I love every single one of those black women. They are all queens all in their own right. They are stars and I wish them the most successful season and transformational Season 13 that the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ has ever seen.”
She concluded with, “The time that I spent on ‘Housewives’ I enjoyed myself. I cried, I laughed, I obviously fought. Most importantly, I made some great friendships with some beautiful women.”
Wishing Eva love and success in her next chapter!
