Eboni K. Williams will join Real Housewives of New York. Eboni, who is a television host and attorney, is the first Black New York Housewife.
“I’m excited to join this legendary franchise as the first Black housewife. Can’t wait to share a slice of life in this city that hasn’t been seen before,” Eboni stated. Eboni has already confirmed that the issue of race will be addressed on the show.
Eboni is already tight with RHONY co-star Leah McSweeney. However, she’s having some trouble bonding with Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan. Shocker! We all know how much Ramona adores the newbies.
Of course, there were some openings on the franchise since two Housewives departed after Season 12. Tinsley Mortimer moved to Chicago to be with her boyfriend (and now fiancé) Scott Kluth.
