Eva Marcille is showing people how to throw down in the kitchen. The former reality star of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” recently shared a video on Instagram that showed her cooking fried ribs, corn, cornbread, rice, and collard greens.
Eva, a talent on “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show,” explained that she learned how to make the Southern ribs from a chef on the radio program. At the beginning of the June 26 clip, the 35-year-old California native gave fans a glimpse of a slab of ribs that were marinating in a freezer bag. She moved toward the stove and revealed a pot of collard greens, sharing that she makes her greens a little spicy. The mother of three set a 15-minute timer on her smart refrigerator. “Oh, gotta love a fancy fridge,” she said at the 3:12 mark.
Rumors spread at the beginning of last year that Eva was struggling financially after she revealed to her former co-star Kandi Burruss that she and her husband were moving from their rental townhouse into another rental home until they could buy and renovate a new place. Eva reportedly purchased her family a five-bedroom, five-bathroom home in an Atlanta suburb last November for $780,000.
She opened up about her finances during the season 12 reunion, explaining that she did not know how she could be labeled broke when she had just purchased an estate. Bravo star Porsha Williams quipped that everyone on the show has a home, insinuating that Eva’s large accomplishment was not a big deal.
Eva’s high-end refrigerator retails for $1,790, which led some fans to believe that the supermodel is struggling with her finances. One IG user wrote, “She still in debt, girl bye!” Someone else said, “😭🤣All I can think about is when when Porsha said girl everybody got a house🤷🏽♂️😭😭😭🤣🤣😂😂.”
Other followers expressed that they purchased the same fridge, hinting that Eva does not have much money. “I have that refrigerator and my account was just in the negative 🤔,” another fan commented. Eva has yet to respond to the gibes.
