Eva Marcille will appear on the upcoming season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta in a diminished role, and is expected to be phased off the show by the end of the season, MTO News has confirmed.

This will be Eva's last season on Bravo's most popular TV show.

But unilke the other housewives who were fired by the network, the choice to leave the show is EVA's, according to people close to the situation.

A person close with Eva explained to MTO News that Eva recently agreed to move to Dallas with The Ricky Smiley show. The radio show - which was located in Atlanta - will be moving to Dallas at the end of the year, replacing the Tom Joyner show nationwide.

And Eva signed a multi year six figure contract to move to Dallas with Ricky and the crew.

Our insider explained, "Eva loves being on the Housewives. But she also loves radio, and spending time with her family. The Housewives is a 12 hour a day job for 6 months out of the year."

Also, the insider explained, "Eva would like some privacy back."

Eva fans - don't worry, she's not gone yet. We're told that the former America's Next Top Model will have a diminished role next season - but she'll still be around to bring the drama.
