The returning cast for Season 15 of RHONY was confirmed earlier this year and now we're learning more about Racquel's impressive career and life as she readies for her RHONY debut in the upcoming new season.

“It’s exciting,” Racquel told GLAAD. “I honestly didn’t think they would be interested in me in the end because they already had a queer woman. I wasn’t sure if they were going to want two queer women on a franchise that has historically been about married heterosexual women. I think it was a bold decision and honestly a more authentic representation of NYC.”

“My family and I really had to think about it; in the end, it made sense,” she added in a conversation with GLAAD. “My entire adult life has been about representation and using whatever platform I have to get the voices of queer folks of the diaspora out there. What better way to do so if not as a member of this iconic franchise.”
