Eva Marcille shared a cryptic post on Instagram following the news that she’s divorcing Michael Sterling after 5 years of marriage.
The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum filed the paperwork last week, saying their union is “irretrievably broken” and that “there are no prospects for a reconciliation.”
Taking to her Instagram story Tuesday, the Bravolebrity sat beside a friend before flashing a smile at the camera, saying, “Tues-yay.”
“That’s a fake ass smile, but it’s okay,” she went on. “Smile anyway, right?”
Earlier in the day, the reality star posted a painting that showed a ballerina wearing a point shoe on one foot, with the other covered in blood and bandages.
“The pain under the beauty,” the image was captioned, seemingly a subtle reference to her current situation.
The 38-year-old tied the knot with trial lawyer Sterling in 2018.
Marcille also shares 9-year-old daughter Marley with R&B singer Kevin McCall.
However, Sterling raised the little girl as his own and even gave her his last name in 2020.
In her divorce filing, Marcille demanded legal and primary custody of the children as well as child support.

As for the couple’s assets, the “America’s Next Top Model” winner said she wants everything to be divided equally.
“This has been one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make, but sometimes life takes your journey in a direction you were not expecting,” she told People in a statement.
“Our children remain our biggest priority, and the eight and half years we have spent together will always be cherished. We ask that you respect our privacy at this time.”
In 2017, the pair got engaged on Christmas Day but have since come to live in “a bona fide state of separation,” according to Marcille.
Sterling made appearances on “RHOA” in Seasons 11 and 12 when Marcille was a main fixture on the hit Bravo show.
She has not returned to the show since Season 13.
