Eva Marcille from the Real Housewives Of Atlanta has been accused of having a "problem" with dark skinned women - and Eva was confronted on the issue during the Housewives Reunion show.

Andy Asked Eva, "What did you mean when you said that Shamari was Black, but without the 'Q'." 

Before joining the Atlanta Housewives, Shamari was a member of the 2000s group Blaque.

Eva responded with a ridiculous answer, "I meant that she was not in a singing group, even though she was an aspiring singer."

Everyone looked puzzled by Eva's response because it didn't make any sense. Here are the faces of Porsha and Kandi when Eva made that statement:


Eva then continued saying, "Colorism is an issue in communities of color. And to think I don't like dark skinned people . . . "

Kandi interrupted Eva saying, "Nobody said you don't like dark skinned people."

Eva then interjected, "But that's the way it was interpreted."

And Kandi responded, "Because that's the way the comment came off."

Shamari them chimed in saying that she thought that Eva was complimenting her:
