The TV and radio personality surprised many when she announced her departure from the reality series after its 12th season concluded. Although some fans aren’t ready to see her go, others are already starting to think about who they’d like to see holding the peach when the show returns.
Williams fanned the flames of the online conversation by posing the question “Who should replace Eva Marcille on the Real Housewives of Atlanta?” to her audience on social media. With no shortage of opinions, followers left over 1,000 comments about who they think should be next on the list to receive the coveted peach. Names on the list included Marlo Hampton, Phaedra Parks, LisaRaye McCoy, and some even suggested not adding anyone new to the mix at all.
“Tiffany “New York’s” mom, Sister Patterson,” suggested one fan.
“Bring back miss Phaedra,” wrote another.
“Nobody they need to fire the whole cast and start over!!” a third enthusiastically encouraged.
“Give @marlohampton the peach,” said a fourth.
“Sorry no Phaedra or Lisa Raye 🤔 maybe just leave the damn slot vacant,” a fifth follower wrote. “I’m tired of all the arguing and bickering. Just for one season I’d like to see them getting along having fun amount themselves.”
Marcille joined the “RHOA” cast during the series’ 10th season. She announced her departure from the show on June 16 with a statement saying that while she’s thankful for “the bond of friendship” that she’s created over her two years of involvement with the series, she’s ready to move on and feels that what she hopes to “accomplish for the culture and community will be better served by focusing on other opportunities.”
