Luann de Lesseps And Sonja Morgan Gush Over ‘RHONY’ Newbie Eboni K. Williams!

Luann de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan gush about their new Real Housewives of New York City co-star Eboni K. Williams and reveal what viewers can expect from the newbie.

“When I first got to know her, I was like, ‘Wow, she’s like a serious lawyer. She’s one powerful girl!'” de Lesseps told Page Six. “She’s very impressive and well-spoken and I like that. I like that she kind of fit right in.

She added, “I feel like she’s a powerful character and we live in a diverse city, so I’m just I’m glad that she’s part of the cast and I think she’s here to stay.”

Meanwhile, Sonja Morgan revealed that she appreciates Williams’ drive, which served as a motivator for her.

“Eboni, of course, has been inspiring to me and she’s given me a power to speak out to get my words back,” she said. “I want to start doing my PSAs again for the LGBT, children suffering from AIDS, animals and artists … Eboni got me instantly.”

“All of us love her so much,” she continued. “I always welcome new cast mates with open arms, but it wasn’t hard with her. She’s very intuitive and feeling and she has empathy for other people. And at the same time, she has her mission that she carries with her everywhere. So it worked out really well for all of us.”

In October 2020, Bravo officially announced that Williams was the newest cast member to join RHONY following Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer’s departures. Eboni is the first black woman to join the series as a full-time cast member.

“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 to Bravo’s The Daily Dish at that 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,” she added. “I’m going to keep it just as real here as I do everywhere else.”

Williams, who is an attorney and a television host, is making history as RHONY's first Black Housewife. She is currently the host and executive producer of Revolt Black News. She also has hosting credits on Fox Sports, Fox News Channel, NBA 2K, and more.

Before becoming a television star, the North Carolina-native earned her law degree at school at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law. After receiving her Juris Doctor degree, specialized in family law and civil litigation. In 2017, she released her book titled Pretty Powerful: Appearance, Substance & Success.
