Atlanta’s own “America’s Next Top Model” is crossing over.
Eva Marcille, best known for winning cycle three of the Tyra Banks-hosted reality competition in 2004, has joined the Bravo series for season 10, Us Weekly reports. Although Marcille, 32, isn’t an official housewife, she will be featured as a friend.
“I’m so excited to join NeNe [Leakes] and the ladies for the 10th season of ‘RHOA,’ ” Marcille told the entertainment news outlet. “Atlanta and America, get ready!”
After nabbing the coveted “ANTM” title, the 32-year-old kicked off her acting career. She starred as Tyra Hamilton on “The Young and the Restless” from 2008 to 2009 and appeared in films including Crossover, I Think I Love My Wife and Sister Code.
Bravo dropped the first trailer for the upcoming season just days ago. In the short clip, viewers got a glimpse of fan favorite Leakes’ widely anticipated return since she last signed on the dotted line for a full-time season in 2015. Marcille has her hands full with a 3-year-old daughter, Marley Rae, who she shares with her ex-boyfriend Kevin McCall, from whom she split in early 2015.

As previously reported, Phaedra Parks was cut from the reality series, after the fourth and final part of the season nine reunion aired, when it was revealed that Parks was responsible for concocting the rumor that fellow cast mates Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker wanted to drug and rape Porsha Williams.
Meanwhile, “RHOA” veterans Sheree Whitfield, Kandi Burruss, Porsha Williams, Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey are all expected to return. Kim Zolciak-Biermann is also expected to make a few guest appearances, where she goes toe-to-toe with Kenya Moore.
