Eboni K. Williams Confirms There Will Be a 'RHONY' Reunion, Says Joining the Show Was 'Worth It'

Eboni K. Williams is the most recent addition to the Real Housewives of New York City cast

Eboni K. Williams is reflecting on her debut season of The Real Housewives of New York City.

The lawyer and TV host, 37, joined season 13 of the Bravo series as the first-ever Black Housewife on the New York installment. Her costars include Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Leah McSweeney and Sonja Morgan.

In a recent interview with Variety, Williams looked back on her experience on RHONY — including some of the more "difficult" parts — and addressed the reports that there won't be a reunion due to scheduling difficulties.

"I was told a time. I was told that we're having a reunion," she told the outlet. "I was told what to wear to said reunion."

Williams also said that certain episodes were "really difficult to watch" over the past few months, noting her drama with de Lesseps and Singer in particular.

In one June episode, de Lesseps, 56, called Williams "angry," later leading Williams to have to sit down with her and explain "why it's unacceptable to call a Black woman angry in that context today."

"I was proud of a lot of that conversation. I was proud of the listening that all the women did, I was proud of myself," she told Variety.

Aside from the difficulties, Williams said her time on RHONY has been "worth it."

"It's absolutely worth it. I think that this has been a growing opportunity for me personally. I mean, my God, I found my father," she said, referencing her search for her biological father in this season.

"My representation on this platform is really important," she continued. "It's so much bigger than me. It's been fun. I mean, listen, it was COVID. You know, is it more fun when we get to take really big international trips, and kind of lean into the glitz and glamour of 'Housewives'-ism? Yeah. And hopefully, that lies in front of us."

As for whether she'll stay on for another season, Williams said she doesn't deal "in speculation."

"Until there's a renewal contract to consider, I just can't really think about that too much," she said. "I've got a lot of other stuff on my plate. But, of course, when and if that offer to do this again comes, I will give it very serious consideration."
