Eboni provided a statement to Page Six. “NYC is filled with successful and dynamic Black women. I’m excited to join this legendary franchise as the first Black housewife. 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,” she said. “I’m going to keep it just as real here as I do everywhere else.”
RHONY fans react:
DIVERSITY is what RHONY fans (and Leah McSweeney) were craving, and that’s just what Bravo is serving up for RHONY season 13.
An Instagram user wrote, “Considering how diverse NY is, this should’ve happened years ago. 👏🏻👏🏻”
Hope she buries Ramona. https://t.co/hUXpCGzv1X

Eboni Williams will be the FIRST black RHONY! The fact that we still gotta say first black is insane but I’m happy its her.
