Hot on the heels of the news that The Young and the Restless' Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott) has thrown in the towel at The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills comes word that another star from the CBS soap is joining the franchise -- albeit in another city.
Eva Marcille, who played Y&R's Tyra Hamilton from 2008 to 2009, has been cast for season ten of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
“I'm so excited to join NeNe [Leakes] and the ladies of the tenth season of RHOA,” the actress told Us Weekly. “Atlanta and America, get ready!”
The actress, who shares a three-year-old daughter named Marley Rae with her ex-boyfriend Kevin McCall, is no stranger to the entertainment world. In addition to her Y&R gig, she appeared in movies like Crossover, I Think I Love My Wife, and Sister Code. She also won cycle three of America's Next Top Model in 2004.
Check out a teaser trailer of the new season The Real Housewives of Atlanta below and let us know what you think about Marcille joining the Southern ladies.
