"NYC is filled with successful and dynamic Black women. I’m excited to join this legendary franchise as the first Black housewife," Williams said in a statement at the time. "Can’t wait to share a slice of life in this city that hasn’t been seen before."

The 37-year-old beauty is currently the host and executive producer of Revolt Black News, where she has been a fierce advocate for women — especially women of color. She has also appeared on Fox News Channel and is a former WABC radio host.

Williams' hiring came after multiple cast members made it clear that they want more people of color on the show. Newcomer McSweeney was one of the first ladies to make her opinion heard. The Married to the Mob founder told Page Six last year that she hoped that there’s not only diversity of race but an even deeper diversity of where someone lives or what their interests are."

"I hope that there’s just more diversity all across the board because New Yorkers are not a monolith, obviously. I think that it is gonna head in that direction," she shared.
