The first Black member, Eboni K. Williams, is an impressive woman who expresses much success in her career. She practiced law in Charlotte, North Carolina, and then worked as a host at Fox News. A piece was written by Revolt in September briefly explaining her career at Fox News.
“While Fox News has proven to be a go-to outlet for news, the company also comes with its own baggage. For Eboni, she walked into the workplace with the knowledge that she wasn’t going to be comfortable and was more than willing to take on the challenge. After joining the team in 2015, she made the bold decision to walk away (at the) end of 2018 to pursue new opportunities.”
Williams is now the host and executive producer for Revolt Black News. She is now focusing on her new position for the hit reality show. She looks forward to joining Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Luann de Lesseps, and Leah McSweeney.
William said in a statement that “NYC is filled with successful and dynamic Black women. I’m excited to join this legendary franchise as the first Black housewife.” Fans are excited to know that Bravo is diversifying its brand image.
I am absolutely here for all the real housewives franchises to get some black women on their cast!

The new 37-year-old housewife continued in her statement saying that she “can’t wait to share a slice of life in this city that hasn’t been seen before. 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.”
A premiere date has not yet been announced. However, make sure to keep your eyes peeled for this exciting breakthrough for the show.
