On the latest episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Marlo Hampton “spilled some tea” on Eva Marcille, accusing the model of “staging” her house and hiding her money problems from the rest of the girls. However, Marcille was quick to clap back, explaining why her particular living situation.
Eva Marcille is a newcomer on “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” but she’s already dealing with the shady actions from other cast members.
On the last episode of the Bravo series, Marlo Hampton spread some rumors about Marcille’s financial and living situation to the rest of the cast.
According to Hampton, she received the information from someone in Eva’s close circle, and she even got the woman —who Marcille later identified as estranged bridesmaid Seannita Parmer—to tell Nene Leakes and Tanya Sam over the phone that Marcille was shooting the show on a house that wasn’t her.
“The house that she’s in is not actually where she lives,” Parmer claimed.
“She lives in a raggedy little house across the street from the golf course. The house is in somebody else’s name that they live in over there because her credit is too bad. And then his stuff was messed up ’cause they couldn’t even get it in his name either.”
After learning about the rumors that were being spread about her, Marcille was quick to identify Marlo’s alleged anonymous source, telling the viewers that “Seannita was literally one of my best friends in the world. She was more than a friend; she was a sister. But after my wedding, we fell out horribly.”
“She called the world and spoke my name and tried to spit venom and lies and take a fraction of the truth in any story and spin that and make it as disgusting as possible.”
Even though Eva refused to give explanations about her life to the rest of her cast members, she and her husband Michael Sterling were honest about their situation to good friend Nene Leakes.
The 34-year-old says that, because of her ex-fiancé’s antics, safety is very important for her family.
The man, Kevin McCall, shares daughter Marley with Eva, but he’s considered as a threat to the family, so they have to split their time in between several homes to trick him.
“I still feel a sense of threat,” said Marcille, referring to McCall as “Marley’s donor” only. “I have had to move five times, and I still feel a sense of uneasiness. He’s just so petty sometimes. I’ve walked outside of my balcony before, and he’s been standing in the dark. And it is the scariest feeling ever.”
“Every time I move, he finds me,” Marcille said. “Because of that, I live in multiple places. Safety is a priority for me.”
Sterling added, “We don’t reveal our address. We have multiple addresses. Some are under aliases. We’ve got to move around.”
Despite Eva’s confession, Marlo remained unconvinced. “I believe that your baby father might be a little cuckoo but girl, he ain't after you like that,” she said in a confessional.
Hampton received a huge backlash from Eva’s fans after the episode aired, but she sticks by her decision of “spilling the tea” and doesn’t think she did anything wrong on spreading those rumors about Marcille.
“So because I bring info to the group I’m messy, unhappy & jealous, PLEASE! I stated what the streets was saying, just like these girls have done to me for the last 6 years,” Hampton wrote on an Instagram post on Monday.
“However this tea came with RECEIPTS, so why would I not bring it to her Big Sis who could let her know her business was being spread by her supposed best friends & bridesmaids.”
Eva, on the other hand, called Marlo’s actions petty, shady and beyond messy.
Is not the first time in the last weeks that Marcille has to address her financial stability. Just a few weeks ago, the former "America's Next Top Model" took to Instagram to clap back at people criticizing her decision to spend over $350,000 on her dream wedding.
Marcille, fed up with the questions that people were asking about the funding for her wedding, decided to set the record straight once and for all.
“There’s this big curiosity about how much money I spent for my wedding, and how much per plate, and all this good stuff. Let’s be very clear – I paid for my own wedding," she stated and continued:
"There were no loans. Nothing was done on barter. And I don’t know about the rest of you guys, but if you’ve ever planned a wedding – it’s per person, not per plate. [...] When I say it was $1000 a head, it was $1000 a head- not $1000 a plate. Get your life together. And how about we start minding business that we invest in? How about that for starters? Have a good one!"
In total, she revealed to Essence that she spent well over $350,000 after believing she could plan a beautiful wedding with a budget of just $80,000-100,000.
