#Roommates, “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star Sierra Gates is no stranger to sharing the ups and downs of her life with fans and following a recent messy breakup, she’s moved on with a new love…and now a brand new home! Sierra gave us an exclusive first look at the lavish home 8,000 square foot home she and boyfriend Eric Whitehead just purchased in Atlanta.
While Sierra and Eric haven’t shared the full look at their new 7-bedroom/8-bathroom home, they did provide us some details about what we can expect to see when it’s completely revealed. Speaking about how they were able to merge their design styles in their new mansion, Sierra explained that she lets her boo Eric take the lead.
“The craziest part about it is that I’m the simple one in this house decoration situation. I just need a bed, a couch, and a place to make some money. He has a lot of ideas, so I’m just letting him do his thing…He’s definitely taking the lead. This is Eric’s third house and his New York house is decorated so nicely, and is so comfortable. Because of his New York home, I let him take over, ‘cause baby I just need my Sade, my candles and the pool,” she said.
Sierra also explained the lengthy and stressful process of looking for a home for the two. She elaborated, saying “We were looking for our house for months and it was a crazy process. The house we wanted suddenly went under contract, then the contract fell through so we were able to buy the house. It took a lot of patience but we knew this wasn’t a small decision. Ultimately it was long but the process was worth it. This is my first home so I wouldn’t change anything about what we’ve been through.”
Now that they officially have their new love nest, we had to get the tea about the state of their relationship—specifically how Sierra knew that Eric was the one and if we can expect an engagement or wedding bells in the future. She told TSR, “Eric and I met each other when he delivered my new Bentley truck from his car dealership. From the moment I met him, it was an instant connection. He was so attentive, and had such a strong personality I was immediately attracted to him, no lie. I remember one moment when he picked me up to put me in my car for a picture and I was like BOO BOO, this the one!”
As for those potential wedding bells, well Sierra is leaving it up to Eric but made one thing clear, “Babyyyy you’ll have to ask Eric that question; but if there’s one thing you know about me is that I can get a ring!!!”
