Eva Marcille is not happy about the way NeNe Leakes acted during the Season 11 reunion of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. During an interview on Watch What Happens Live, Marcille blasted her co-star for acting “cold” and said believes she came ready to pick a fight during the reunion.
“I was really surprised about how cold NeNe was,” Marcille admitted. “It was sad. It just seemed like she just came out there with a thick shoulder and daggers. She was just ready.”

Marcille, who first appeared as NeNe’s friend in Season 10, was also asked if she felt indebted to NeNe for bringing her on the show. According to Entertainment Tonight, Marcille assured her fans that NeNe was not the person who got her a spot on RHOA. Marcille admitted that they were friends last season, but NeNe had zero involvement in her casting.
The comments come after NeNe opened up about her marital issues with husband Gregg NeNe. Following a dramatic season, the two shared how their marriage is on the rocks and that they are now currently sleeping in different rooms.
Despite their obvious struggles, the two are doing their best to salvage their relationship and have been undergoing counseling.
During the reunion, Gregg admitted that he hopes they can stay together. NeNe, on the other hand, is unsure about their future. In fact, NeNe told Cohen that she has no idea what she plans on doing and is feeling enormous pressure to stay in the relationship.
Gregg and NeNe have had marital woes in the past. The pair tied the knot back in 1997 and were going strong until 2010. At the time, the couple experienced a few explosive fights and ultimately separated. They officially called it quits in 2011 and filed for divorce.
Cancer affects the whole family, Not just the person with the disease! Sharing what we’ve been goin thru publicly has been hard. The criticism hasn’t helped but it has definitely made us stronger n every way. Thank u to America Cancer Society who has supported us relentlessly

They rekindled their romance in 2013 and tied the night that summer. Their second wedding was televised in the special, I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding.
NeNe Leakes has not said anything about Marcille’s comments. Gregg is currently fighting stage 3 colon cancer, which has not made their situation any easier.
