After testing the waters as a “friend to the show” during Season 10, Eva Marcille has reportedly bagged her peach, joining The Real Housewives of Atlanta full-time for Season 11, according to Us Weekly.
The news comes days after the reported firing of Kenya Moore, who was absent much of Season 10. Moore and Marcille also didn’t see eye-to-eye on the few occasions they did hang out together.
“She was gone for most of the season,” Marcille told Us Weekly of Moore. “And I thought mean girls died in like high school like, I didn’t realize they were knocking on 50 but hey girl live your best … I thought like she’s on this whole other space you know … I get her irritation towards certain people that she’s had history with.”
Shereé Whitfield and friend Kim Zolciak-Biermann have also not been asked to return. Other cast members who have officially been called back include Cynthia Bailey, Nene Leakes, Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams.
