Eva Marcille is leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta after three seasons.
Eva delivered her announcement via ‘The Rickey Smiley Morning Show’ this morning.
“I appreciate the bond of friendship that I’ve made with my castmates and strong personal relationships I have with numerous executives and producers of Bravo,” co-host Gary With Da Tea read on behalf of Eva. “I am thankful for the opportunity I was provided, however, after speaking with my family and representatives, I believe that what I hope to accomplish for the culture and community will be better served by focusing on other opportunities.”
“I look forward to serving the community on Rickey Smiley Morning show and finding other ways to be a voice during this transformational time during our country for people of color,” she added.
Elaborating on her prepared remarks, Eva said:
“I believe my time is up. I have a 6-year-old daughter and two young boys still in diapers. They are 24 hours a day and there is a lot of work to be done. I decided to spend my time and energy focusing on my kids and my community and not so much reality show business.”
