RHOA’s Eva Marcille moved five times to avoid stalker ex: ‘Every time I move, he finds me’

The more we hear from famous women who suffered abuse, the more we learn about how scary, isolating and devastating abuse can be. The fact that these women with large platforms and so many resources can be trapped in the cycle of abuse speaks to how insidious it is, and how it’s in no way the victim’s fault. I’m thinking of Mel B, Amber Heard and Jennifer Farley from Jersey Shore, who posted a chilling first person essay about spending years with her abuser, her children’s father. Actress Eva Marcille (Young and The Restless, House of Payne) has been on The Real Housewives of Atlanta the past couple of seasons. In the most recent episode she revealed that her ex, the father of her oldest child, daughter Marley, 5, has been stalking her. She said that she’s moved five times but that he keeps finding and harassing her. Eva has sole custody of their child and married Michael Sterling last year, with whom she has a one-year-old son.

Eva Marcille got candid about her contentious relationship with ex-boyfriend Kevin McCall on Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, claiming that she and her family have had to move five times to flee from him.

The 34-year-old model — who split from McCall back in 2015, a year after giving birth to their daughter, Marley Rae — said she’s taken multiple restraining and protective orders out against McCall, alleging domestic abuse.

“I still feel a sense of threat,” said Marcille, referring to McCall as “Marley’s donor” only. “I have had to move five times, and I still feel a sense of uneasiness. He’s just so petty sometimes. I’ve walked outside of my balcony before and he’s been standing in the dark. And it is the scariest feeling ever.”

Speaking to PEOPLE late last year, Marcille said that she doesn’t have any contact with McCall.

“There’s no co-parenting, I’m the parent,” Marcille said. “He’s not in my life, and he’s not in Marley’s life. I have full custody. Michael is Marley’s father. [Kevin] ain’t nothing but a memory.”

We don’t reveal our address. We have multiple addresses. Some are under aliases. We’ve got to move around.”

Apparently there’s drama between Eva and another woman on the show, Marlo Hampton, who claims that Eva has money problems and that she’s not really being stalked by her ex. I’m not going to excerpt all that but you can read about it on People. It sounds like typical Real Housewives BS. They need storylines and you never know how genuine the conflicts are. As for Eva’s situation, I can’t imagine how scary and creepy it must be to have a stalker and to think that he can find you at any time. Again, this is a woman on television with 2.8 million followers on Instagram. That doesn’t protect her from an obsessed abusive ex.

    That is really scary to be stalked by an ex.

  2. CharliePenn says:

    Horrible. So scary. Someone was saying recently “I don’t get why women stay with an abuser, just leave!”
    But leaving is the most dangerous time and the time when the chances of getting straight up murdered by your abuser are highest.
    Abusers don’t just let you walk away. They get violent, they start stalking… it’s very scary.

  3. Veronica S. says:

    One of my coworkers goes by a public nickname because of a stalker and has to consistently caution people against giving information out about her location in the store. It’s scary stuff, honestly. It gets played down way too much until it becomes dangerous.

  4. Cindy says:

    Unrelated but it’s so funny to see Eva being referred to as a cast member of RHOA or by her acting gigs. She’ll always be ANTM’s Eva the Diva to me lol.

    • frankly says:

      I was coming to say the same thing! Then I was like, is she the most successful ANTM alum? I know a few have landed a few things here and there, but who besides her and Niles is still visible?

      • Steff says:

        Winnie Harlow is probably the most visable and successful ANTM alum. I watched her season and it’s so weird to me to see her now rubbing elbows with Bella Hadid and other huge celebs.

      • frankly says:

        You’re right. She’s on like 15 pages in this month’s Vogue which I just read and was like “Check out Winnie Harlow!” all 15 times. Derp.

      • Alyse says:

        Annaleigh Tipton has done relatively well as an actress, she was the ex-ice skater.

        Pretty sure whoever gets robbed that season is most likely to do the best irl!

      • Dazed and confused says:

        Yaya Dacosta was a runner up on ANTM and she’s doing well. She’s been on Chicago Med since it started.

  5. elimaeby says:

    She looks really happy in the picture with her current husband. I hope she’s able to keep that stalker-ex out of her life for good. It’s such a scary situation to be in.

  6. eto says:

    Not to mention that Kevin is trying to get back in his daughter’s life after saying on social media that she (yes, the daughter) was dead to him and posting pictures with her face crossed out.

  7. Original Jenns says:

    I read her creep ex posted on social media that their drama was just for her story line and that they split the money 50/50. So not only is he harassing her and stalking her, but he’s trying to mess with her financial situation and get people to not like her on RHOA.

  8. Louisa says:

    I honestly don’t trust a word this woman says. I remember her from
    ANTM and she was nasty, manipulative and had zero scruples. I’m not saying it isn’t happening….. but integrity counts and she is highly suspect.
