New York Housewives Eboni K. Williams was recently dragged into a drama that really has nothing to do with her, and when she tried to remove herself from it — she was labeled a “race baiter” for her trouble.
Heather Thomson responded to a fan who wrote: “Eboni needs to go. She doesn’t fit in and she’s a race baiter.”
“I have to agree with you,” Heather replied. “Hers is not a class I want to take.”
Heather was upset because Eboni did not come to her defense when Leah McSweeney snapped on her.
Eboni has something to say about it.
“Somebody sent me screenshots of Heather liking and agreeing with the race-baiter comment and then going on to say a paragraph [claiming I was] in some conspiracy alliance with Leah to make Heather look bad. There was just so much untruth in that that I picked up the phone,” she told The Jasmine Brand.
Eboni continued: “We had a tense, hour-long conversation… I said Heather actually did more harm than good in the way she was, to me, whitesplaining my feelings to these women. I found it problematic. We got through all of that explanation, we agreed to disagree about some of it, but… it was productive,” she explained.
Eboni disagrees with viewers who say there have been too many discussions about race on the show. Eboni is the first Black Housewife on the show — and it’s revealing some of the cast member’s ignorance.
And they don’t like that.
Last week, Eboni even alleged that Bravo had cut out many of the other racial comments the Housewives have made on-camera.
“As long as I hold the apple, I’m going to use the platform according to my discretion,” she asserts. “And my discretion is that they were allowed to have an all-white, pretty ridiculous f***ing show for 12 years, that I enjoyed, too! But now I’m here. Imma talk about Black excellence all day.”
