The Real Housewives of New York City is a popular series that shares a slice of life of every housewife in this city. Recently, the show added another housewife to their rooster for the 13th season.
And it will be the first time in the history where a black woman will get featured in the series. Eboni K. Williams is officially set to appear as other housewives in the series.
The 37 years old is an executive producer as well as the host of Revolt Black News. She told a source that as a first black housewife she is excited to join the franchise. She continued that she doesn’t hold back, and she will keep it real for the viewers.
She also added that the series was never seen through a black lens, but she hopes that her presence in the series does justice to their culture and black women.
Let us find out more about this incredible housewife of NYC:

Why do I do what I do? How do I do it? A Story About Taking Up Space Since I was kid I knew I wanted to become a lawyer. I didn’t know if it was the deep boom of my voice or the unbothered way I asked question after question in the classroom. But for some reason when I spoke, my teachers, and more important to me, my peers listened. They listened acutely and intensely to me, a little black girl from the south, born and raised by a single mom. I decided way back then that I would use my gift for good. I would be a voice for the voiceless. I would boldly and unapologetically represent the rights and best interests of folks that were typically dismissed, overlooked, marginalized and flat out ignored. I would be their happy, but badass warrior. And I would take up ALL the space needed in order to do so. From public school, to college and especially throughout law school, taking up space was essential to my process. In order to be a fierce advocate for anyone else, I had to first learn to be a fierce advocate for myself. Boldly taking up space in classrooms, led to be confidently and without apology, taking up space in courtrooms throughout the country as I fulfilled my childhood dream of being a trial attorney. Then a strange thing happened. I decided I needed even more space. I needed my voice to be amplified so I could empower and impact more people. So I took my gifts and skills to Los Angeles and eventually to NYC where I developed a successful career as a television broadcaster and bestselling author. So everyday whether I’m Co-hosting my @revolttv show, signing copies of my bestselling literary debut, Pretty Powerful, or interviewing top newsmakers, I proudly & unapologetically do the thing that put me on course to do my life’s work….I take up space.

She’s a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha, Inc. sorority
Just like VP candidate Kamala Harris, Eboni is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha. Check out the post below where she celebrates AKA anniversary with other members.
Eboni wrote a memoir about beauty and success
In 2017, she also released a book titled Pretty Powerful: Appearance, Substance & Success. She has written powerful and impactful words in her memoir. She talks about women with beauty and the brain is not taken too seriously. People think, if a woman is beautiful, then she lacks in smartness and leadership qualities in many endeavors. It is a great read that every woman should read.
She appears to be single—at least on social media
Eboni has told a source that she is not married. She has admitted that she is not going to be a typical housewife. And she isn’t dating anybody either. Or maybe she wants to keep her dating life under wraps.
However, that doesn’t stop her from having a family of her own. She revealed that in this pandemic, she has learned that family is the single most important thing in the world.
Eboni is still realizing what is family to her because the concept is still new for her. In the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New York City, viewers will get to ride the journey with her. She will look back to her past to see what is it for her and begin to create a family of her own. Her journey of transforming into a full woman will be explored in the series.
Stay tuned for more updates.
