As an outspoken fixture on the award-winning Rickey Smiley Morning Show, Eva Marcille contributes a relatable woman’s point-of-view, with a sharp wit…and sometimes a challenging position. The fashion model, actress, TV host, and entrepreneur broke onto the scene and into pop culture’s heart as “Eva The Diva,” winner of the third season of America’s Next Top Model (ANTM). She is mom to daughter Marley Rae and sons Michael Jr. and Maverick. The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star is married to Atlanta politician and lawyer, Michael Sterling.
Eva literally became a “top model” appearing on covers for Upscale, Brides Noir, Women’s Health, Fitness, King, IONA, and Essence magazines. She has also modeled for brands including Cover Girl and DKNY, and has walked the runway for Marc Bouwer, ELLE Girl, Ed Hardy and many more. The Los Angeles native extended her brand to the small and big screens amassing credits for television (Everybody Hates Chris, The Game), feature films (I Think I Love My Wife, Miss Me This Christmas), and music videos for Jennifer Lopez, Jamie Foxx and others. Eva is also a lead cast member and fan favorite on Bravo’s hit show Real Housewives of Atlanta!
