Andy Cohen is sharing his excited reaction to the news that Eboni K. Williams will join The Real Housewives of New York City for Season 13. The Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host took to Twitter on Thursday, October 8, the same day The Daily Dish confirmed the big news.
"Welcome to #RHONY, @EboniKWilliams!" Andy, who serves as executive producer of The Real Housewives franchise, shared shortly after the news broke.
In a statement on Thursday, Eboni opened up about joining the RHONY cast. "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. "Can’t wait to share a slice of life in this city that hasn’t been seen before."
She added, "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.”
Season 12 of RHONY concluded earlier this fall with a three-part reunion in September, followed by a special "Secrets Revealed" episode featuring never-before-seen footage from the season that aired in the beginning of October.
