Eboni has come under increasing scrutiny since her time of “Real Housewives of New York.” The attorney has been blamed for the slump in ratings and for trying to make the show too “woke” — whatever that means.
“I love the law. I loved my career as an attorney. I loved practicing law. I no longer practice law. I’ve not practiced law in a full-time capacity in the state of North Carolina since 2011 and thus I have chosen voluntarily not to pay those assessments,” she explained.
“I want to acknowledge something. As a person who’s very much now in the public eye and doing work that is hostile to many, I should have anticipated that there would be this kind of desperate attempt to discredit me. And by the way, good luck with that,” she continued. “You gon’ have to come harder than an inactive bar license to come for me. Because the reality is I’m one of the most credible people in the world, and I say that humbly. So good luck trying to discredit me. And we all know this is the desperate times calls for desperate measures.”
“The effort to discredit is based solely on the fact that I am having the audacity to bring to light and center issues that disrupt the status quo that has been the beneficiary of systems for generations that are no longer acceptable.
“I will not be deterred. Y’all keep digging. Keep looking. Your girl understands,” she quipped.
