It looks like the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) better make room!
The popular reality show, already filming its 10th season, will welcome model Eva Marcille to the fold before shooting wraps, the beauty shared with Us Weekly.
“I’m so excited to join NeNe [Leakes] and the ladies for the 10th season of RHOA. Atlanta and America, get ready!”
The star was reportedly asked to join the series before the season began filming, but Marcille was hesitant because her boyfriend, Michael Sterling, is running for mayor of Atlanta, according to sources at TheJasmineBrand.
@michaelforatlanta has a level of passion and commitment that I extremely admire. His daily fight against the status quo along with his vision for the beautiful city of Atlanta are only a couple of reasons he has my full support. Take a minute and check him out and see if he could earn yours?! #nextmayorofatlanta @michaelforatlanta #startathome
“She was apprehensive because she doesn’t want any distractions for Michael.”
The former America’s Next Top Model winner was also unsure about joining the show because it would require relocating 3-year-old daughter Marley Rae, whom she shares with ex-boyfriend, singer Kevin McCall.

In the end, good friend Leakes and a hefty paycheck were the reasons she made the mid-season move.
“She’s making close to six figures for doing Real Housewives of Atlanta. Getting that paycheck helped convince her,” concluded the source.
Marcille will be joining RHOA vets Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, Shereé Whitfield, Porsha Williams and Leakes. Kim Zolciak has also returned to the series part-time.
How do you think she will get along on the show?
