If you've been paying any attention to The Real Housewives of Atlanta news, you've heard that we're welcoming some old friends back. But there are also some new faces in the mix this year and Eva Marcille is one of them. Here are the six things you need to know about the latest addition to the Atlanta Housewives' friend circle.
1. She's a Top Model
No, literally; Eva won the third season of America's Next Top Model. Remember that stunning picture of her posing with a tarantula on her hand? We sure do — iconic.
2. Her Daughter is Her Mini-Me
Eva and Marley Rae have the cutest relationship, and Marley looks just like her mama. We wonder if she and Kandi's son Ace have playdates...
3. She Was Almost the Next First Lady of Atlanta
Eva's engaged to Michael Sterling, an activist and politician who recently ran for mayor in Atlanta.
4. She Acts, Too!
Eva has acted in several films and TV shows including The Young and the Restless (for which she earned two NAACP Image Awards nominations) and the TV One series Born Again Virgin. Currently, you can see Eva getting spooky on the new VH1 show Scared Famous.
5. She Knows Everybody
Besides being close with several of the Atlanta 'Wives, Eva is friends with a lot of other notable celebs, such as Brandy Norwood.
6. She Slays All Day
This hazel-eyed stunner really knows how to serve a look from head to toe, and honestly, we're not suprised. She is a top model, after all.
