RHOA Newcomer Eva Marcille Talks About That 'Beyond Awkward' Moment She Outed Cynthia Bailey's Boyfriend
Eva Marcille shook things up on her debut on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Now, she has spoken on the drama that was the highlight of Sunday night's episode.
Eva Marcille Didn't Come To Play
Marcille might have meant well when she came on the show, but it didn’t take her long to ruffle Cynthia Bailey’s feathers. The ladies were at an event to celebrate Kandi Burruss' cover of Essence magazine when Marcille was reacquainted with Bailey’s boyfriend, Will Jones.
She pointed out that she and her longtime fiancé Michael Sterling had just met Jones and his alleged girlfriend at a campaign for Sterling, who was running for mayor of Atlanta at the time. It was also just before Bailey went public with her romance with Jones. Let’s just say Bailey wasn’t up for hearing the news and Jones initilaly acted like he didn’t know what Marcille was talking about.
“The situation with Will and Cynthia is beyond awkward,” said Marcille in the show’s BravoTV blog. “Never did I intend to cause any kind of drama between them. I honestly expected Will to be truthful about the young lady he introduced me to and tell us that he had moved on. At no point did I expect that Will would act as if none of this happened. The denial of the incident is what makes this all so messy.”
Does Cynthia Bailey's Boo Really Have A Girlfriend?
In the episode, Marcille confronted Jones. She maintained that when she met him, she also met his girlfriend. He somewhat went around the accusation and said he was not expecting that, considering his support to Marcille and Sterling at their event.
Marcille took things a step further and said Jones attempted to flaunt on Instagram like he was closer friends with Marcille and Sterling than he really is. At this point, the situation started to escalate so NeNe Leakes, who brought Marcille on the show and is good friends with Bailey, walked over along with Bailey’s co-star and friend Kenya Moore.
Jones later said he was “no longer dating” the other woman. Still, he seemed to have left a sour taste in Leakes’s mouth. Moore called him out and said she “didn’t believe he was being 100 percent honest” while Kandi Burruss just gave him the side eye.
Leakes also let him know he was getting too aggressive with Marcille before she told him she believed her story over his.
It’s not clear whether Bailey and Jones are still an item. She did post a snapshot of him on Instagram to wish him a happy birthday last month.
