Actress Eva Marcille broke onto the pop culture scene in 2005 during the relatively early days of reality TV, winning the third season of "America's Next Top Model." Twelve years later, she is doubling down on the world of reality, landing on the cast of VH1's "Scared Famous" and becoming a recurring character on the upcoming season of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," returning Sunday, November 5.
The long-time Los Angeles resident and mother of a three-year-old daughter is dating former Atlanta mayoral candidate and attorney Michael Sterling and decided recently to move to Atlanta for good.
"I was afraid coming to Atlanta, I wouldn't find the liberal pocket. Lo and behold, I've found that there are plenty," she said in an interview today. And hanging with Sterling has immersed her quickly into Atlanta attending debates, forums and neighborhood meetings.
The shrimp-and-grits-loving gal chose East Atlanta as her home. "It's very United Nations," Marcille said. "The schools are very cool. I love the area. And what I love most are the big, huge Craftsman homes. I'm in a quintessential Southern home with two fans on my front porch and a gorgeous backyard that spans five hours long. I love it!"
