Eva Marcille teases about what really "shook out" between Nene Leakes and Kandi Burruss during her wedding and how her mother played a role in it. 


Fans are in for some juicy viewing when Season 11 of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” premieres this week. According to Eva Marcille who’s a series regular in the new season, viewers can expect her recent wedding to be featured as well as “what actually shook out” during the lavish occasion. 



Eva opened up to Hollywood Life recently about the rumored spat between her co-stars Nene Leakes and Kandi Burruss that allegedly went down during her wedding to Michael Sterling. The reality star acted clueless about it, but she did hint at something shaking down that day.

“You would be telling me the news! I am not aware of anything of the sorts at all.  All I remember is a magical day, however, you will have to stay tuned to what actually shook out.”


Eva added that fans will get to see her life unfolding on the show.

“The world will get an opportunity to go on this new journey with my now-husband and I, mostly me, as I get ready for my marriage.”

Eva confirmed that her entire wedding was filmed for the show. If there was a fight that transpired between Nene and Kandi, it’s bound to reveal itself in the coverage. 



Previous reports suggested Eva’s mother intervened to pacify the situation. When asked about this, Eva replied,

“I'm her only daughter so this is her first really big wedding so she took the mother of the bride job very seriously. I know my mom put out a few fires! I heard of a few and I'm sure there are a few that I don't even know about!"



Of the show’s brand new season, Eva says fans can expect it to be “unpredictable.” According to the newlywed, tension between the housewives is inevitable. 

"You put every personality and strong women together, you're going to beef with a little bit of everyone so you’re going to have to tune in on November 4th and see where the relationships are and how they grow and evolve in certain instances."


Eva feels honored to have been offered to be a full-time cast member of the Bravo show. She’s also looking forward to sharing her life to the world completely.

“This season you get to see my whole life. I have a husband, a new child, and my work. I’m also integrating with these different women.” 


Though she knows to be on reality television comes with a certain level of stress, she sees the bigger picture.

“As a brand, you want everything attached to you to come off porcelain and perfect. The beauty of ‘Housewives’ is all that stuff goes away. You have good days. You have bad days. I feel the world relates to that.”


Eva married her husband in a lavish ceremony in Atlanta last month.  She shared a series of photos on her Instagram revealing her beautiful wedding dress and lovely candid moments. 


Five months before they tied the knot, the couple welcomed their first child together. Their son they named after his father is now a brother to Eva’s daughter, Marley Rae, from her previous relationship with Kevin McCall.
