On last night’s episode of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ things got messy as Marlo spilled all the alleged tea about Eva Marcille’s financial situation.
Here’s a brief recap:
Marlo Hampton invited NeNe Leakes and Tanya Sam over for girls night. Marlo told the girls that Eva’s friend Seannita had contacted her after the wedding to spill all kinds of negative tea on her former friend.
Among the claims were that Eva’s a “fraud,” that her husband’s also broke, that her credit is so terrible she has to rent their home in someone else’s name, and that they have to move imminently because they’re being kicked out. NeNe was legitimately screaming. Tanya’s mouth was on the floor.
Marlo then called up Seannita and put her on speaker so she could back up what Marlo was saying. She did, gladly, then added that Eva’s car had been repossessed.
Fast-forward to Kandi’s Old Lady Gang II opening. Tanya said hello to Eva and almost immediately pulled her outside. Tanya ended up telling Eva everything Marlo had told her. Eva was visibly hurt but wasn’t terribly shocked. She knew immediately who had been spreading the gossip and also knew why they went to Marlo with it.
She went back inside, said hello to NeNe, asked for her purse and stormed out of the restaurant. Producers were seen and heard apologizing to Eva, who had already made up her mind that she was leaving. She ripped off her mic, got in her car and peeled out of the parking lot.
Back inside, NeNe ripped Tanya a new one for telling Eva. She didn’t feel it was Tanya’s place to fill her in on what Marlo had said, but Tanya begged to differ. NeNe ended up calling Eva and urging her to come back to the restaurant so that she could control her own narrative and address the conversation head on.
Eva and Mike drove back to the restaurant, where they met up with NeNe in the parking lot. Mike was just as upset. According to both Mike and Eva, Eva’s ex — the father of her first child — follows her everywhere she goes. He was abusive to her and is a constant threat, so they have to move around constantly and rent out homes under aliases.
With NeNe’s guidance, Eva went back inside and explained herself to the ladies. Marlo told Kandi she didn’t believe any of it.
Marlo hopped on Instagram to clap back at those criticizing her for being ‘messy’

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, 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. Even some of her so called new friends were giggling when they heard the tea, but so concerned when spilling it to her ?. … And to show y’all how messy I’M NOT, I didn’t even share all the documentation/proof I was given. I’ve endured so many nasty LIES about me in this group of women, I date old white men, I’m a prostitute, NO — What I am is a single woman that dates men that I’m attracted to of any color! I came on RHOA with a Black Man, Charles Grant, I was the breadwinner in the relationship ? the white billionaire they love to mention was my boyfriend for over 4 years, he courted me for 6 months while I ran my store the Red Carpet Boutique, we were in love, it didn’t work out, he broke my heart. … Please give me a receipt, a picture, a screen shot of me being a Ho, Prostitute, Escort… I’ve been waiting for 6 years, seriously, show it! I’m a #FactStater, I say what they’re thinking and do what I want. Is my delivery the best, No, I’m working on that, but it’s always truthful & without malice. …. Having a husband & family is important to me, but I grew up without a father and half of a mother, I know how to survive. I take care of me, I’ve survived this far & doing damn good. I’ll take that step, when the time is right, for the right reasons. … Not because society says so, not because it’s the trend & definitely not because a group of bored, bitter women with washed up careers think I should because they are threatened by a confident, sexy, educated, hard working & fashionable Single Woman… #Periodt And don’t get it twisted I don’t date broke, go purchase one of my t shirts if you feel me, 10% now using code “FactStater” never jealous of a ? cause the ?is secured, half the work, double the pay, winning ?????.
As for Eva’s explanation, last night on RHOA she said that she and her family have had to move five times to flee from allegedly abusive ex Kevin McCall and that’s why she lives in multiple places now.
“I still feel a sense of threat,” said Eva, referring to Kevin 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.”
Eva claimed that she now lives in more than one house to make it harder for Kevin to track her and 5-year-old Marley down.
“Every time I move, he finds me,” Eva said. “Because of that, I live in multiple places. Safety is a priority for me.”
Kevin didn’t take too kindly to being featured as part of Eva’s storyline.
It’s sad when she gotta keep using my name for her story line, if I was the husband I would be like “Real hoe of Atlanta is you out your mind, or is you still obsessed with your child’s Father? Why is he in our story line so much ain’t I enuff headline for our relationship?” ?
