Will stumbles over his words as he tries to prove to Cynthia that Eva's the one who's lying.
NeNe Leakes and newcomer Eva Marcille were on their way to Kandi Burruss' Essence cover party when Will came up in conversation. Eva told NeNe she had met Will and a woman he introduced as his girlfriend just a few months prior. In fact, it was only four days before Will and Cynthia's relationship went public. Eva even recalled Will telling her that this girlfriend of his was good with his daughter.
Once they got to the party, NeNe and Eva told Kandi and Kenya Moore, who immediately went to Cynthia. Earlier in the evening, Cynthia had asked Will how long he had been single, to which he responded, "Like two-and-a-half years."
Kenya pulled Cynthia outside. "Listen, I don't want you to be ambushed, but they're talking about Will, and they're saying that Eva was out with him and another woman a couple months ago, and he introduced her as his girlfriend. And it was the photo of the girl that NeNe said you saw."
By this point, Eva and NeNe had joined the conversation.
"I've only met him once," Eva said. "This all happened that one night. I've never seen him before, I've never seen him after."
Cynthia was calm, cool and collected, telling the ladies, "I don't know the timeline, but I completely receive this. I receive it. And I assume that it's coming out of love and concern for me."
Will ended up coming outside, and Kenya pulled him aside to grill him about what she had just heard.
Contrary to the story Eva told, Will said he did not introduce this woman as his girlfriend and that the encounter took place seven months ago, not two.
Will and Cynthia then got a chance to talk. "I know we're not exclusive," she said. "I know we're just dating, but I don't want to date you if you have a girlfriend."
"We've talked about that, and I've been clear about that, and I don't like being ambushed in this, and I told you that at the very beginning," Will said before calling Eva over.
Will stumbled over his words as he tried to shade Eva for not having his back.
"I had a woman with me, and I said that," he admitted.
"And was it your friend or was it a girl you were dating?" Eva asked.
"I am no longer dating that woman," Will said, adding that what Eva said about the woman having been around his child was a lie. "I really wish you would have spoke to me first, and you would have had a different answer because everything was perfect with us until this came along. And I think that hurt me because the perfect gentleman that I was to her -- thank you. You showed me that I have to be more better at other things."
NeNe, Kenya and Kandi later told Bravo cams they felt Will was lying -- and that he was lying "with an attitude."
