Eboni K. Williams Becomes First Black 'Real Housewives of New York City' Cast Member

The attorney and TV host will try her hand at reality programming.

The Real Housewives of New York City has announced its newest cast member, attorney and television host Eboni K. Williams. The reality show’s first Black “housewife,” Williams replaces recently departed regular Dorinda Medley.

“NYC is filled with successful and dynamic Black women. I’m excited to join this legendary franchise as the first Black housewife,” she said in a statement, reported by People. ”Anyone who’s aware of my work knows I don’t hold back. I’m going to keep it just as real here as I do everywhere else.”

Williams, a North Carolina native, hosts and executive produces Revolt Black News, a current events talk show on Sean “P. Diddy” Combs’ cable network REVOLT TV. Before working in television, Williams practiced family law and civil litigation. In 2017, she released a book, Pretty Powerful: Appearance, Substance and Success.

In case you missed it, we spoke with breakout Real Housewives star Leah McSweeney about mental health and fame — as well as her 2016 essay disclosing her diagnosis with bipolar II disorder.
