Bershan Shaw Is Officially Joining ‘RHONY’ For Season 13; Says She’s “Thrilled” And “Thankful” Being “Part Of The Bravo Team” And About “The Diversity And Inclusion This Season Brings”

After months of speculation, Bravo has officially confirmed that Bershan Shaw is joining the cast of The Real Housewives of New York City for the show's upcoming thirteenth season. 

"I'm thankful to be a part of the Bravo team and I'm thrilled about the diversity and inclusion this season brings," Shaw told E! News. "I am a warrior for all people and so are the ladies."

Bershan is a business coach, motivational speaker, author, and host of the podcast Buckle Up with Bershan. Shaw and Eboni K. Williams will be the first Black women to be featured among the RHONY cast. 

Shaw and Williams will be joined by returning cast members Leah McSweeney, Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, and Sonja Morgan.

The network previously announced in October that Eboni would be joining RHONY for Season 13. "NYC is filled with successful and dynamic Black women. I’m excited to join this legendary franchise as the first Black housewife," Eboni said in a statement at the time. "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."

The news comes after Dorinda Medley announced her exit from the series. Tinsley Mortimer quit the series mid-season as she moved to Chicago to be with now fiance Scott Kluth. Friend of the show, Elyse Slaine, confirmed that she was not returning to the series.
