Who’s happy that Real Housewives of New York is back? I know I am! The girls looked amazing on the premier episode. Say what you want about these women, but Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, and LuAnn de Lesseps look better than ever. Leah McSweeney looked great as well, but I was most impressed with Eboni K. Williams.
Eboni made a statement in her first few seconds on screen, without saying a word. In the scene, Eboni and Leah walked through Central Park together for a chat and Eboni was wearing a sweatshirt with the names of the Central Park Five. This is the kind of perspective that’s been glaringly absent on RHONY for over a decade. Overall, it seems that Leah and Eboni have a nice energy together on screen that also translates to print.
In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight, Leah and Eboni interviewed each other about their experiences filming this season. Leah pointed the conversation directly towards the dramatic, asking Eboni who she thought she’d “go head-to-head with,” and whether or not she was right. Eboni replied saying, “yes, I was right.”
However, the person she bumped heads with was not Ramona, even if “the world expected that to happen.” Eboni shared, “I did expect to go head-to-head with Ramona Singer.” She explained that they’re “both very alpha women. We both say it like we mean it, and sometimes that can ruffle feathers. Of course, we know that that does happen through periods of the season.”

Eboni indicated in the interview that her relationship with Ramona actually surprised her. “I think what’s surprising is [Ramona] wasn’t the first woman in this group that I go head-to-head with.” Then she asked if this shocked Leah, who replied, “I was. I was like, ‘Oh, wow, it’s her? Damn, I thought it was gonna be Ramona first’.”
We still don’t know who “her” is exactly, but Sonjarita and Lu both make sense. Plus, all Eboni is saying is that she butt heads with someone before Ramona, so we will definitely see her take a ride on the Ramonacoaster.
For instance, Leah added, “honestly, in the trailer… when you’re like, “You’re gaslighting me,” and [Ramona’s] like, “You’re gaslighting me,” I’m like, oh my god. It’s the battle of who’s gaslighting who. Ramona doesn’t know what gaslighting means, for sure. She’s just saying it because you said it to her. I died.”

Eboni summed up Ramona’s strategy in arguments, saying, “I know you are, but what am I?” That statement pretty much sums up Ramona’s strategy in any argument. The showdown will be good, for sure!
TELL US- WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THE PREMIER? DO YOU THINK EBONI IS A GOOD ADDITION TO THE CAST? WHO DO YOU THINK SHE BUTT HEADS WITH BEFORE RAMONA?
