America’s Next Top Model winner Eva Marcille Pigford stopped by Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” and during her chat explained the fallout of her relationships with Lance Gross and rapper Flo’Rida. On the latter guy, she took a mighty dig at video model Melyssa Ford while giving herself quite a pat on the back.

Why did her engagement to actor Lance Gross end?
“We were together for 5 years. When I started dating Lance, I was young and we were definitely in love but I don’t think either one of us were really ready to get married. I know that we were both committed to each other and he didn’t want to be with anyone else. I didn’t want to be with anyone else. So, naturally you feel like the next step is, ‘Let me propose’. So when he proposed, I definitely wanted to be with him, but I wanted to have a long engagement. And then, a year and a half [later], the wedding is coming up and we just wasn’t ready. He didn’t do anything wrong, he never cheated on me, I never cheated on him. He’s still a great guy. Whoever ends up dating him is gonna be very lucky. It just wasn’t my moment.”
How did she meet Flo’Rida?
“I do this thing for BET every year, it’s called the Coca Cola lounge. I was in the lounge and he came up to me and we had to do a little interview together and he stuttered a little bit but he kind of bossed up and he thought I was attractive. So he asked if we could hang out while he was out here. I was extremely single, so I gave him my number and then we were suppose to go on a date and my car caught a flat coming over the canyon in LA and he literally like came over there to fix my tire […] and he had been waiting for me at dinner for like an hour and a half, two hours…who were over it. From there, just a friendship blossomed.”
Did Flo’Rida did her for Melyssa Ford?
“Never. She realized that he had money after I dated him and decided that she wanted him. A lot of times women don’t give guys the credit necessary until they understand their bank account. And so, seeing that obviously I dated him, to other women that tells them that he must have money, or that he must be more successful than you thought. So now he’s eligible.”
Why did she break up with Flo’Rida?
“I didn’t want anything too serious. Flo is a great guy [….] but I had just come out of a very serious relationship and he got really holy on me and wanted to go to church all of the time and I was just trying to kick it. So, then he wanted to take me to church. Then the preacher was like, ‘You guys are gonna get married,’ and when I heard the marriage line I was just like whoaaaa.”
