The “Real Housewives of New York” star Eboni K. Williams says all of her talk about racial issues on the show has nothing to do with their poor TV ratings… she says it’s all up to the producers.
Eboni tells TMZ she shouldn’t be the scapegoat for a declining TV audience just because she doesn’t make final decisions about what ends up airing… but the producers do.
The way Eboni sees it … ‘RHONY’ has tackled tons of sensitive issues over the years – like mental health, alcoholism, bankruptcy, and divorce – so race shouldn’t be any different.
If you didn’t know … ‘RHONY’ ratings are going down, and fans have been speculating all season, it’s because Eboni seems to have too much.
Sources close to the cast tell us that some cast members are also tired of this story coming up with every episode. We’re told they think ‘RHONY’ should be light, fun entertainment… with a little drama, of course – but Eboni says it’s not up to her or her castmates.
There is clearly a growing rift, as Eboni says she feels demonized by some of the “housewives” and some viewers. She adds… if some of her castmates didn’t show up for micro-aggression shoots, there wouldn’t be a need for constant talk about the race.
