Eva Marcille rocked the boat on her debut episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Heads turned when the RHOA newbie exposed Cynthia Bailey’s new beau Will Jones, as a cheater.
The “girlfriend” Eva exposed is pictured below in a now deleted snapshot posted on Will’s Instagram account. Will claimed to be campaigning with Eva and her fiance, Michael Sterling, who was running for the mayor of Atlanta at the time.
Cynthia, 50, addressed Eva’s allegations in her recent Bravo blog. The 50-year-old admits that she initially did not believe the newcomer’s cheating claims about her new man.
“I didn’t believe it,” said Cynthia to Bravo. “He was very clear about not having a girlfriend or being in a serious relationship with anyone, and I believe him. Obviously, a girlfriend is a deal breaker.”
According to Cynthia, the news was not a surprise and she and Will are not dating each other exclusively.
“I assumed Will was dating people before we met — why wouldn’t he be? It would actually be kind of strange if he wasn’t. He is a great guy. I’m also dating, and we aren’t dating exclusively. I’m not ready to be exclusive with anyone yet.”
Cynthia’s ex-husband, Peter Thomas, also attended Kandi Burruss’ Essence party, making things quite awkward with her new boyfriend in attendance.
“I was shocked to see Peter at the party, because I didn’t know he was going to be there,” shared Cynthia. “I never actually got to really see him (or speak to him), which felt kind of weird. I love the friendship we share now, so I never want to be in the same place with him and not be cordial. We have both moved on, and I never want it to be awkward between us.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Sunday night’s on Bravo, at 8:00 p.m. ET.
