‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Star Eva Marcille Addresses ‘Nappy Heads’ Comment

Eva Marcille has been getting a lot of backlash from RHOA fans for the current season. They feel as if she crossed the line with some of her comments about Kenya Moore, Porsha Williams, and Marlo Hampton. However, Eva firmly believes that anything she says will be completely dissected, while this isn’t really the case for the other women.

At her gig on, “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show,” Eva addressed her controversial comments. On the topic of calling Kenya and Porsha nappy heads, Eva said, “Well, we all have…I am definitely head of the nappy head committee, my momma and my daughter. Anybody that identifies with us, welcome. And if you don’t identify with that then that’s totally fine. I mean nothing offensive. I happen to be a black woman.”

Eva doesn’t feel like saying Kenya had a later in life baby was a jab. She said, “But when it comes to having a later in life baby, anything after 35 is clinically considered a geriatric pregnancy. Anything after 35. So to say someone is having a later in life baby is a very nice way of saying that you’re having a baby after the clinical time that doctors think is the optimal time to have a child. No one’s throwing a dig. Now if you are offended that you had a baby later in life, then that’s your personal beef. Not mine.”

The nappy heads comment was discussed again. And Eva doesn’t understand why it’s wrong for black people to use the term. She said, “I’m not offended by the things that make me beautifully black. I guess what perturbs me is that we as a community are offended by the things that identify us.”

She also doesn’t regret what she said about Marlo. Eva felt it was best to walk away from drama while pregnant. And Marlo called it “running away” but Eva wanted to avoid stress. She still believes Marlo doesn’t understand this because she’s not a mother.

    I personally am not a fan of the term nappy but I do think people do the most to blow up everything Eva says and does. Kenya just got on TV and called another black woman bald headed like that’s not a harmful stereotype. These women say the most awful things about each other but the only people ever called out by the fans are Eva and Nene.

    I just don’t understand how Kenya calls herself the shade assassin but she can’t take Eva’s shade.

    Eva is black. Did people forget that? Some people act like light skinned people can’t have kinky hair too.

        No. Eva’s parents are black. People didn’t start calling Eva mixed until recently. And I’ll keep my thoughts to myself on why that is.

    I think this might be my last season watching RHOA; these grown women act like they are still on high school with the constant tearing each other down! If there isn’t a beef between one or two of the women or a group of women against one, then they have nothing to their story line! Mind you it’s reality tv but it’s not real stuff!! Everything is scripted fior ratings!!! Now as a black community we are going to let non black producers get us all outraged and stuck on colorism amongst ourselves!!! It’s called slave mentality and anyone who isn’t black knows how to capitalize on the ignorance that exists in our own community!! Everyone can see it but us!! SMH!!!

      That is the most sound comment I have ever seen. I love every word you stated and could not have said it better myself . Well said. That’s why I don’t watch it either… Not do I eat h basketball wives or love and hip hop. Done with proving the stereotype.

    This is offensive. As a black women you should be more intelligent and not blaming your blackness to be stupid. Sorry but we see you. A simple sorry would have been more appropriate.
