Eva Marcille has never been one to shy away from speaking her mind, and yesterday the Next Top Model winner called out her former colleague Winne Harlow for shading the platform thrust her into the limelight.
Recall that Harlow Andy told Cohen on WWHL that the competition show doesn’t really “do anything” to propel the models, but rather, just places them on reality TV.
“So I really started after the show because that really didn’t do anything for my career, which it doesn’t do anything for any model’s career, realistically,” she said. “But a photographer from London hit me up. Major photographer, Nick Knight, and he was like, ‘Hey, I’ve seen your photos online and I want to do a shoot with you.’ It went viral, I got campaigns from there and it hasn’t stopped since.”
Tyra took the diss in good stride. But not Marcille who has called Harlow’s comments “wack.”
“You know what? It amazes me that people get opportunities and they totally forget who gave them those opportunities,” she said. “Winnie Harlow is a beautiful girl, but let’s be clear: we know her because of Top Model. The world knows her, Drake knows her, Wiz Khalifa knows her because of Top Model. So to diss Tyra, who gave everyone this huge platform, I think it’s really wack.”
