The next season of the Real Housewives of New York is sure to be a wild ride. Leah McSweeney is returning for a sober second season. Eboni K. Williams is joining the cast as the first Black RHONY housewife. And she’s got a thing or two to say about Ramona Singer’s tone-deaf attitude and offensive comments that she gives half-hearted apologies for. Oh, and Holla Heather Thomson is returning to feud with Leah.
We know that race will be a major topic next season, according to Eboni and other new friend-of Bershan Shaw. It’s “unavoidable” as Eboni puts it after a year of racial reckoning that has touched nearly every new season of shows on Bravo. Corona Singer has a problematic past with doing whatever she wants, acting however she wants, and saying whatever she wants without repercussions. Except for this year, at least Gizelle Bryant hopes.
After coronavirus outbreaks and major cast shake-ups, the Real Housewives of New York is returning to our TVs this spring. And while the girls won’t be wreaking havoc in the Berkshires with Dorinda Medley this year, the show will introduce its first Black housewife and feature a few ghosts of RHONY past.
On Tuesday, People premiered the first trailer for Season 13 and it truly encompasses everything we love about RHONY. Ramona Singer avoids responsibility at every turn. Sonja Morgan and Luann de Lesseps argue about men. Everyone drinks a little too much. And even Leah McSweeney gets naked in a pool again. All is right in the world.
After months of speculation, it’s officially official. Bershan Shaw will be a part of Real Housewives of New York Season 13. At this moment, it’s unclear if she secured that apple as a full-time Housewife or she’s part-time, but we will find out soon enough.
We haven’t seen Bershan on screen yet, but based on her recent comments, she’s excited to join the group.
Production on Real Housewives of New York has shut down in response to a coronavirus diagnosis for the second time.
The first time around, a crew member contracted the virus. This time, a cast member has coronavirus.
The Real Housewives of New York is welcoming their first black cast member in their newest season. That’s right! Eboni K. Williams is officially joining the RHONY crew! There are other rumors that Bershan Shaw may also be joining…but we’ll have to wait and see.
For now, let’s just get excited to add a Housewife who Gizelle Bryant already stans. Giz has recently made comments that Eboni will know how to cope with the likes of Corona-Ramona Singer. And lucky us! Eboni is already sharing some thoughts on the infamous Ramona-coaster.
It was rumored that entertainment news correspondent Alicia Quarles would be the first Black cast member on Real Housewives of New York. Then, there was speculation that Bershan Shaw would join the cast.
As of this moment, it doesn’t look like either of them will be on the show, but there is a new addition to the show that has been officially confirmed.
When Bethenny Frankel announced that she was exiting Real Housewives of New York before Season 12, viewers were stunned. Since her RHONY departure, Bethenny has been busy. She has been on the front lines with her efforts to help those affected by the coronavirus.
Bethenny had a role in getting Leah McSweeney cast on RHONY. Leah and her naked tiki torch throwing shenanigans made a big splash on the show. Leah has been attending protests and posting on social media in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. The RHONY newbie has been vocal in her belief that the show needs diversity. And it turns out, Leah isn’t alone in her calls for diversity on the franchise.
