Spilling the tea!

Real Housewives of New York newbie Eboni K. Williams is dishing about everything that’s gone down so far while filming season 13.

In a new interview with RealiTea With Derek Z, Eboni opens up about attending her first Real Housewives cast trip as well as Sonja Morgan’s season 13 drama.

She also reveals which former RHONY star reached out to her via direct message.

To start, Derek asked Eboni: “You were just in the Hamptons for your first weekend getaway with the girls. I need to know – Are they giving you a warm welcome, or is there a little drama?” 

“I can tell you after this trip in the Hamptons; there’s enough foundation with every single one of them. Will we get there? I don’t know,” Eboni confesses. “Like I honestly don’t know. You know, we’re early in the filming process.”

She continued, “The opportunity is there. This is going to come down to everybody staying their authentic selves, everybody having the willingness. You know, that’s a big thing for me. Willingness. Who wants to be in a relationship with me? Who do I want to be in a relationship with? You know, kind of if we will, remains to be seen. But I’m excited. I think I see parts of myself in each one of these women, which might surprise some viewers.”

“But and let’s say they kind of surprise me on some level. But a really pleasant surprise. I think what I’ve already learned in the brief amount of time we’ve been filming is that just when you really take the time to talk to people, I mean, really talk, you will be shocked as to how much you have in common versus your differences. That said, there’s a lot of differences. There’s a lot of differences between me and a lot of these castmates.”

She explains that so far, she has really great connections with the entire RHONY cast beyond just her good friend Leah McSweeney.

“I mean, Leah McSweeny and I have a really special relationship already because we have a lot of organic things in common beyond the age stuff. It’s just shocking how much Leah and I are alive and connect. I’m very deep spiritual levels, and it’s a lot, and I can’t wait for everybody to see that. But in addition to Leah, you know, there’s some really amazing things I have in common with Ramona Singer. There’s some pretty cool things that Luann [de Lessesps] and I share by way of background,” Eboni explains.

As for Sonja Morgan, Eboni said, “And then with Sonja Morgan, I’m going to say that about me, and Sonja is you got to watch that. You got to watch me in this all the time. Sonja has surprised me is all I will tell you.”
So, does this mean there’s drama browsing between Sonja and Eboni? Eboni wouldn’t confirm or deny this but instead told fans they will have to wait and “watch this play out.”
“Sonja has totally surprised me. And y’all got to watch this season. I can guarantee you, and I promise I’m not saying this because I’m on it. I halfway wish I wasn’t, just so I could sit back with y’all and drink wine and watch this play out. This is going to be unlike anything during this franchise has ever seen,” she admits.

Meanwhile, Eboni also reveals that several Housewives, including one former RHONY star, have reached out to her after joining the season 13 cast.

“Yeah, so Gizelle Bryant from Real Housewives of Potomac reached out,” she said. “I’ve not met Gizelle personally, but she is my sorority sister. We’re both members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. She reached out with a beautiful text message. She got a hold of my number and again says, ‘This is incredible. It’s a lot. If you need support, you want feedback. You want advice on the phone call the way.’ And I appreciate that about Gizelle.”

However, Eboni was even more surprised when Dorinda Medley reached out to her and congratulated her on joining the RHONY franchise.

“The most surprising reach out I had was from Dorinda Medley. Dorinda actually slid in my DMs to just simply say congratulations. I think it is wonderful you’re being added to this cast. I hate that we won’t get to work together. But go get it. And I thought that was extremely classy. I think I’ve always enjoyed Dorinda on this franchise. I’m a fan of the franchise. I’ve seen every episode, some of them twice. And I thought for her to say that was just really, really a classy move.”

RHONY will return to Bravo for season 13 in 2021.
