Model and reality Tv star Eva Marcille stopped by the Breakfast Club this morning to promote her new show “Girlfriend Confidential” on Oxygen. I actually got to see two episodes, Terrell Owens make random appearances there too. I wish them all the best with the show, but it’s definitely something I will NOT watch in the future.
Anyway, during the interview this morning, Eva talked about her engagement to Lance Gross and why they broke it off eventually. She also talked about hooking up with Flo Rida and her current relationship.
Read the highlights of the interview and watch the video below.
On her new show:
“The show is about four girls in LA, trying to live our dreams. It’s real life and I’m gonna be real. [..] This show is just a different show and it shows women of color all together, in a different light that you see. Not saying that the light you see is currently bad. I think it does represent a certain amount of people, it’s just not me. Life is controversial, there’s drama, we’re girlfriends, so Imma give it to you real. But it’s like resolution with class. It’s about supporting each other.”
On how she likes to be approached by men:
“I’m a real bossy woman so I like men with even bigger balls. I like very confident men. I like the man that comes over like, ‘Look this is what you need in your life.’”
On why her engagement to Lance Gross didn’t work:
“We were together for 5 years. When I started dating Lance, I was young and we were definitely in love, but I don’t think either one of us were really ready to get married. I know that we were both committed to each other and he didn’t want to be with anyone else. I didn’t want to be with anyone else. So, naturally, you feel like the next step is, ‘Let me propose’. When he proposed, I definitely wanted to be with him, but I wanted to have a long engagement. And then, a year and a half, the wedding is coming up and I just wasn’t ready. He didn’t do anything wrong, he never cheated on me, I never cheated on him. He’s still a great guy. Whoever ends up dating him is gonna be very lucky. It just wasn’t my moment.”
On meeting Flo Rida:
“I do this thing for BET every year that called the Coca Cola lounge…Anyway, I was in my little Coca Cola lounge and he came up to me and we had to do a little interview together and he stuttered a little bit, but he kind of bossed up and he thought I was attractive. So he asked if we could hang out while he was out here. I was extremely single, so I gave him my number and then we were suppose to go on a date and my car caught a flat coming over the canyon in LA and he literally like came over there to fix my tire, get the whole moment, and he had been waiting for me at dinner for like an hour and a half, two hours…and from there, just a friendship blossomed.”
On if Flo Rida left her for Melyssa Ford:
“Never. No. She realized that he had money after I dated him and decided that she wanted him. Not too much. [..] I’m saying that a lot of times women don’t give guys the credit necessary until they understand their bank account. And seeing that obviously I dated him, to other women that tells them that he must have money, or that he must be more successful than you thought. So now he’s eligible.”
On why she broke up with Flo Rida
“I didn’t want anything too serious. Flo is a great guy..but I had just come out of a very serious relationship and he got really holy on me and wanted to go to church all the time and I was just trying to kick it. So, then he wanted to take me to church. Then the preacher was like, ‘You guys are gonna get married,’ and when I heard the marriage line I was just like, ‘WHOA.’”
On who she is currently dating
“I’m dating this guy, He is from Jamaica. He lives in LA. Very regular guy. Super regular; gold teeth, tattoos. He is a music producer. He is just grinding out. He is on the come up. In his mid 20′s. [..]
I was hosting at a club and you guys know when you host a club, you don’t need to buy me a bottle, because they bring those bottles. It’s part of my contract. So he is sending bottles over to my table and I’m there – I was single at the time – with friends, like guys that were good looking and big, so I was wondering who is this dude to send me bottles of drinks when I don’t need them. I can get them for free. And I’m with men and anyone of them could be my boyfriend, so that kind of stuff intrigues me. I wanted to know who had those big balls. So I sent my assistant over to find out who that guy was and got his number. So I texted him and said, ‘Thank you for the bottles, I really appreciate it,’ and then the next day, he asked me to dinner. We went to BOA in LA. I realized that he was younger than I thought. I didn’t know what age he was, but I usually don’t date younger guys. He closed BOA (Steakhouse) down, he got a little respect in the city.”
