Prior to the premiere of Season 12 of 'RHOA', in an interview, housewife Eva Marcille revealed that there would be a "snakegate", which would "fracture" several relationships on the show.

In the interview, Eva said, "There's definitely a snake in the group, and a lot of this season you see us trying to figure out who the snake is. And it's like so unassuming and kind of catches you off guard."

"Literally, no one expected it. At some point, you'll find out who it is, but you couldn't guess it. They just created so much discord between the girls, and different relationships and friendships were severely fractured from this snake," she added.
 While fans immediately began speculating who the snake might be, the latest episode has given us some hints as to why we think newcomer Yovanna Momplaisir might be the snake Eva was referring to.

In an earlier episode, we saw Yovanna tell NeNe Leakes what her friend-turned-foe Cynthia Bailey told her about NeNe. Yovanna tells NeNe that when she attended Cynthia's wine cellar party, Cynthia apparently called NeNe "toxic" and "a burden".

When she was asked if she had receipts, Yovanna replies that she has them all. On the latest episode, we see NeNe telling Kandi about how one of their mutual friends has "secret recordings" of Cynthia speaking ill about her.



We see Cynthia and Kenya wondering who that "mutual friend" might be, and Cynthia defends herself by saying that although she doesn't know what the recording says she is sure that whatever she might have said would be in defense of what NeNe must have said about her.

Kenya Moore then adds that this person who she addresses as a snake must come in front of everyone and share their recordings.


Since Eva mentioned that the snake managed to create "discord" between them, we can't wait to see what other trouble Yovanna might cause and all the drama that will ensue.

Who do you think is the snake of this season? Let us know. 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' Season 12 airs every Sunday, at 8 pm ET/PT on Bravo.
