Eva Marcille Has Some Words for Kandi Burruss in Recent Interview

When it comes to being accused of being a colorist, Eva Marcille has had about enough.

She’s already denied that her remark about Shamea was rooted in colorism.

The RHOA newbie even called out Kandi Burruss for making the accusation on social media.

Now Eva has more to say in a recent interview.

This is what she told Mara, The Hip-Hop Socialite, when asked about it:

That was recklessly irresponsible, recklessly irresponsible. To make an indictment like that that’s so sweeping to say that I have an issue with color is a huge problem. Furthermore, not to clarify it, but even if you had that notion, which I gave you no reason to have that notion, but if you have some type of past issues growing up in the south and being a beautiful, darker complexion black woman and that’s your hang-up – you know what I’m saying – then I appreciate that, but that’s not my issue. I never had that issue, and I definitely know it exists. It’s a huge problem in communities of color, and not just African Americans, but in the brown community, in the Middle Eastern community, you know, and so to make an accusation like that, I think it is very irresponsible for someone who does not like false accusations said about her. I think it’s disingenuous because she knew what she was doing, and even if she didn’t say the exact words ‘she doesn’t like dark skinned girls’, to make that assertion of maybe she was saying – I made no assertion that way at all. Unless she said something, no one would’ve thought that – “black with a q”, are you serious? I don’t know, but I’m definitely a black woman with black parents, and I never associated “black with a q” to mean anything about dark versus light, so I think it was extremely irresponsible.

    Of course Eva wouldn’t have a “hangup” over this because she’s light skinned. What an insensitive response this was.

      Yall leave Eva alone. She trying to fit in with all those haters anyway on the show. Marlo especially have been giving Eva a hard time. I feel Marlo just mad cause she can’t get a peach!! but producers keep her in company so she can keep the mess going!!

        No one is jealous of Porsha and her short fat man. Todd is not poor. He’s just not rich like Kandi. Are doctors poor? Diamonds aren’t actually that expensive. Porsha is pathetic. Pregnant after 5 or 6 months trying to get him to marry her. Just because someone is rich doesn’t mean they’re a good man. He stole a company from an ex and he had a girl when he met Porsha.

    Kandi wasn’t being malicious. She just gave her opinion on what it sounded like to her.

    I don’t think Eva was being colorist. She was just saying that Shamari is a somebody because she is a part of Blaque (blaque with a q) and Shamea is a nobody because she doesn’t have a notable career (just black with no q).

      Thank You for explaining what Eva couldn’t bcuz I took it the same way Kandi took it, as an insult. This may be her first and last season due to being boring?

      Hi I’m with you I don’t know why everybody misinterpreting what she says maybe because they looking at her light skin and feels like oh she said something negative towards people of Darker complexion all she said was she wasn’t black from the group she just a black woman that’s a lot of us I didn’t take offense to that I’m dark-skinned myself I’m not black from the group but I am black

    This is what happens when you try too hard to shade and read people. You end up saying some dumb sh-t and offend people in the process.

      It really was a dumb comment, not a colorist comment, just a dumb comment and she can’t even explain it properly months later. Duh!
