In October, Eboni K. Williams was announced as the first Black co-star on Real Housewives of New York. Former RHONY star Bethenny Frankel has said that she suggested several African American women’s names to join the show.
Leah McSweeney, who is going into her sophomore season, is a long-time supporter of the Black Lives Matter Movement. She also spoke out hoping to bring some racial diversity to the show.
People reported that Eboni discussed how race will be part of RHONY during an interview with SiriusXM’s Bevy Smith on Bevelations.
Eboni stated, “Race is absolutely discussed, I think in responsible, but very authentic ways on this season. It’s already happening. I can tell you that much.”
