Heather Thomson Says She Was On Eboni K. Williams’ Side In ‘RHONY’ Fight With Luann de Lesseps!

Heather Thomson is sharing her thoughts on the drama playing out in the current season of The Real Housewives of New York City between Eboni K. Williams and Luann de Lesseps.

“I was on Eboni’s side,” Heather told Us Weekly after Williams accused the former Countess of labeling her an “angry Black woman,” during the Tuesday, June 1, episode of the Bravo hit reality series.

“Luann should know better based on where we are today and based on what her experiences have been — you know, showing up in blackface, these sort of things — to have sensitivities toward a trigger word, which is calling a Black woman angry.”

Heather encouraged both women to listen to each other when their fight unfolded during last week’s episode of RHONY. 

“I did my best to explain to both sides, both of the women, you know why this is bigger than us,” she said. “Like, we have a moment here.”

During last week’s episode, Williams engaged in a heated and racially sensitive exchange with co-star Luann de Lesseps over education. The argument began after Ramona Singer and Leah McSweeney had a debate about whether it's appropriate to candidly discuss sex among friends, leading de Lesseps to step in and suggest that using vulgar words did not align with their conservative values. Williams chimed in and disagreed with de Lesseps.

“I don't subscribe to the fact that to use those words means you're unclassy or not a lady,” Williams said as de Lesseps replied, “It has nothing to do with class, it has to do with education.”

When Williams said that she's the “most educated person in this group,” de Lesseps argued that her co-star's degrees don't make her more educated. “That's probably the stupidest thing I've ever heard somebody say,” she said.

As the pair continued to go back and forth, Singer told her castmates to “bring it down” because her “ears are hurting.” Williams then told Singer that her “white fragility is killing me right now,” leading de Lesseps to warn the lawyer to not “go after” Singer's race since they didn't attack hers.

Williams later grew frustrated as her costars failed to see her side of things. “If you don't want me here because I'm not free to express how I feel about things, I will leave your property," said Williams. “I think you should go," de Lesseps quickly agreed. “You need to calm down and think about what you just said was very offensive to us.”
