Eboni K. Williams Says Reality TV Was “Built On The Backs Of Black Women”

The “Real Housewives of New York” star and “State of the Culture” co-host chatted with “The View” about why she decided to appear on reality TV.
Attorney Eboni K. Williams is known for sharing the State of the Culture stage on Revolt, but she also has joined the cast of Bravo’s megahit series, Real Housewives of New York. Williams visited The View where Whoopi Goldberg asked her why she would want to make the shift to reality TV, especially given its reputation.
“I think that reality TV owes everything to Black women. I think it’s built on the backs of Black women and I think that Black women actually have so much to gain from the medium, if used properly,” said Williams.
“I think that, for better or worse, there is nothing like the impact of reality television. I think we all thought that it would be a hit it and quit it thing, maybe fifteen years ago. We’re on thirteen seasons of [Real Housewives of New York]. Fifteen seasons, sixteen seasons of [Real Housewives of Orange County]. It’s not going anywhere, so if you can’t beat ’em, maybe it’s time to join ’em.”
