Eboni K. Williams dishes on reports the Real Housewives of New York season 13 reunion has been postponed indefinitely.
As we have previously reported, this rumor came to light after Bravo postponed the reunion twice.
“There is still no confirmed date to shoot the reunion show after it being postponed twice. First, August 5th is canceled, and now the September date has been canceled too. But even more concerning, there is no date to start filming season 14 on the books and talk about putting the show on permanent hiatus,” a source recently told Radar Online.
However, the RHONY newbie told Entertainment Tonight that the reports of the RHONY season 13 reunion taping being postponed indefinitely is “ridiculous.”
“Everybody’s incentivized to make the reunion happen,” she says. “I’m looking very much forward to this reunion. I think my castmates are, too, because a lot of crap went down this season. And it’ll be great, I think, for everybody to be able to express how they feel, how they felt watching it back. I mean, for me as a newbie, I mean, it was a lot.”
“I think it’ll do us all tremendous good to sit down as grown adult women and have this big, open conversation so that everybody can, as we say in the Southern church, all hearts and minds can be clear,” Eboni notes before adding, “Amen.”
Meanwhile, Eboni’s made it clear she’s not taking the heat for the current ratings slump affecting the franchise.
Many fans are blaming the ratings slump on Eboni since she’s the newest member of the cast however she thinks the burden should be falling on the show’s veteran cast members.
“From my experience in television, any expectation to carry ratings around a program will go to the veteran talent. So I think it’s nonsense to correlate the ratings performance of a 13-year series to a freshman talent,” she told Insider in an interview last month. “I just don’t buy it.”
The Real Housewives of New York City airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
