Eboni K. Williams Wants “More Glamour” And “More Good Times” On Next Season Of Real Housewives Of New York

Season 13 of Real Housewives of New York was a snooze fest. Newbie Eboni K. Williams joined the cast as the first Black Housewife on the franchise. Eboni forged a strong friendship with Leah McSweeney. Their bond was so strong in fact that they both got tattoos in memory of their grandmothers who had recently passed away.

But Eboni’s RHONY debut was a bumpy one. Luann de Lesseps called Eboni “angry” and ordered her to leave her house. Luann took a lot of heat for her comment. Some viewers, and cast members, felt that Eboni was “too preachy.”

In an ominous sign, the Season 13 reunion was canceled, which was shocking news. It turns out that the reunion was scrapped because Eboni reportedly lodged a complaint against Ramona Singer. Eboni alleged that Ramona said something that was “racially motivated.”

A third-party investigated the allegations, but by time the investigation was over it was too late to air a reunion. Ramona was cleared of the allegations. Before Eboni filed her complaint, a crew member also filed a complaint against Ramona for a similar reason.

So, what did Ramona say to trigger the investigation? She allegedly remarked, “This is why we shouldn’t have black people on the show.” She supposedly made the comment about Eboni during Eboni’s argument with Luann when Luann kicked the lawyer out.

Of course, Ramona denied making the comment. “I never said that. It’s a terrible lie,” Ramona stated. There was talk that Ramona was fired. There were whispers of a major cast shake-up, and that the show was entering “permanent hiatus” territory.

There were rumors that Ramona, Leah, and Luann made a pact to leave the party for the tell-all book, Not All Diamonds And Rose: The Inside Story of The Real Housewives From the People Who Lived It as soon as Eboni arrived. That’s cold.

The plot thickened when Leah said that she hadn’t “heard too much” from Eboni. Meanwhile, Eboni referred to her relationship with Leah as “friendly colleagues.” Ouch.

Page Six reported that Eboni wants to return to RHONY whenever production begins again. Eboni is looking forward to working with her co-stars, even Ramona, who Eboni said she “really connects with.” Did Eboni watch last season? The attorney has remained close with Sonja Morgan, which isn’t surprising. I’m still shook about Eboni and Leah not being besties.

“I want more glamour, more style, more indulgence and more good times,” Eboni explained of what she would like next season. “And more women in the cast!” Eboni stated that stylist June Ambrose would make a “great addition.” She would like to see members of the LGBTQIA+ community represented on RHONY. “I would love to see that type of visibility increase on the show,” Eboni added.

And if Eboni doesn’t land back on RHONY, she could still pursue her dream job of co-hosting The View.
