AceShowbiz – In the aftermath of part 1 of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” explosive season 12 reunion, Eva Marcille is weighing on the attacks she got from co-stars NeNe Leakes and Porsha Williams. In a new interview with HollywoodLife.com, Eva shared she thought that nothing about the confrontation was spontaneous.
“I feel like NeNe and Porsha were on one,” she said in the recent Instagram Live TVTalk. “I don’t know what their deal was, but it felt very planned. It’s easier to derail a plan when you’re in person. They were just mad the whole time. They were just mad.”
“Porsha and NeNe came in there guns blazing,” Eva went on to say. “They were nasty!”
“I think that just the ability to be able to read off of each other’s body language. You have to remember, these reunions start at old dark 30. It’s at the crack of dawn and they were on 10 from the beginning until whichever was their end,” she continued saying about having to film a reunion separately due to COVID-19 pandemic.
Eva later hinted that she wasn’t planning to rebuild a friendship anytime soon. “I definitely am down to co-exist,” she shared. “I can definitely do that and I’ll always be respectful where it is warranted. I will always offer respect first, however, I’m no doormat. I’m no one’s lapdog and all the just be nice because I expect someone else to be nice to me, that’s out the window. We shall see!”
During the reunion, which aired on May 10, NeNe and Eva were arguing after the latter confronted NeNe about her comments in which she called for Eva’s firing. The two got into a screaming match with NeNe yelling, “Nobody cares about you being on a carpet 17 years ago,” referring to Eva’s “America’s Next Top Model” win back in 2004.
The two continued to take a jab at each other. Eva claimed that she was “the face of a cosmetic line,” but NeNe said that Eva was “broke” when she came to Atlanta. “All you can talk about is ‘Top Model’, and that was the last time you was on top. You’re a freshman, b***h. Remember that!” added NeNe, before demanding that Eva respected “the elders” and went “back to L.A.” At the end, host Andy Cohen muted NeNe’s video feed.
As for Eva and Porsha, the tension rose up after Porsha went after Eva for saying that her daughter, Pilar Jhena, looked like “Dennis [Porsha’s fiance] with a bow.”
