A new report has emerged alleging that Real Housewives Of New York star Eboni K. Williams was detained 19 years ago for shoplifting as rumors are flying that the season 13 reunion has been "indefinitely postponed" due to the other cast members' rift with Williams.
According to a police report obtained by the Daily Mail, when the now attorney at law was only 18-years-old, she was allegedly detained after trying to snatch a $245 pair of Stuart Weitzman pumps from a mall in Durham, North Carolina.
The outlet reportedly claims that fortunately for the former Fox News correspondent, the judge decided to dismiss the case all together. If the case had not been thrown out, it could have kept the 37-year-old from the ability to practice law.
A source explained to the Daily Mail, "Look, nobody's perfect. People are allowed to change their minds and make mistakes but don't make yourself out to be someone you're not and don't build your own brand on the backs of others and then trash-talk them all over town."
This report comes as the brand new housewife has had quite an interesting season on the Bravo show. Once one of the most loved shows on the network, the New York franchise has now had a season of low ratings and complaints that newbie Williams comes off as "too preachy" or "woke."
"All of the women work hard on this show and Eboni's come in and walked all over it and them," a source stated.
According to an insider who spoke to the British outlet, the producers have reportedly decided to postpone the reunion "indefinitely because the rift between Williams and key cast members has grown so toxic, they fear there is no going forward and no coming back."
"I don't know how they sit down together and figure this out. I don't know if it's even possible."
As the Revolt TV star has stated that the season's poor performance is due to production and editing, even the big wigs at Bravo are at a loss of what to do next.
"[The women] were under attack and the network was shocked. She has put everyone in a really s****y position," the source went on, also citing that this situation left show veterans LuAnn De Lesseps and Ramona Singer "reeling." The source noted, "What makes it even harder to stomach is the level of her hypocrisy."
