The Real Housewives of New York City is ready for season 13. A new cast member and a premiere date for the reality series have now been announced. Eboni K. Williams is joining Leah McSweeney, Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, and Sonja Morgan on the series, which will return with new episodes on May 4th.
Bravo revealed more about the upcoming season and the new addition to the cast in a press release:
“With a new apartment and the addition of a furry friend, Leah McSweeney is on a mission to continue elevating her life. Embarking on a journey to convert to Judaism, Leah’s newfound spirituality helps guide her as she faces the challenges of co-parenting her daughter and the devastating loss of a family member. No longer the new girl on the block, Leah is delighted to welcome Eboni to the group and have a good time with a fellow boss.
The Upper East Side welcomes back Luann de Lesseps, who is excited to settle into her new space, be closer to friends, and even spark up a new romance. Luann is thrilled to be cooking up a new single and video with the help of the ladies – her support system as she gets back on a path to sobriety following a small slip up over the summer.
After spending much-needed quality time with her family in Florida, Ramona Singer has returned to the city and is gearing up for her latest venture in real estate. She once again plays host to the women at her house in the Hamptons and finds herself at the center of old and new tensions among the ladies.
Sonja Morgan is embracing a new chapter centered on self-love and self-care. With her friends by her side, she is encouraged to discover all she has to offer, and what the future looks like when she commits to prioritizing positive energy. After going off the grid for a bit, Sonja is back in the Townhouse to ground herself, move forward, reconnect with old friends and explore her dating options.
New housewife Eboni K. Williams is the definition of a multi-hyphenate as a successful attorney, broadcaster, producer and author. Dedicated to empowering the voiceless, Eboni spent much of her career in the courtroom, but now brings her expertise and passion to working for REVOLT TV and hosting her own podcast. After ending her engagement at the beginning of the year, Eboni is ready for a change of scenery. Not only is she on the hunt for new real estate, she’s also on a journey to learn more about her family history and how it has inspired the woman she is today.

Williams” by her production company, Uppity Productions.

Positioned for disruption, she enters these opportunities representing Black excellence intent on demonstrating and inspiring what is possible for Black people in America. No longer in the courtroom, Eboni remains a fierce advocate for liberty and life. With the lens of a legal scholar, she educates and inspires audiences, exposing institutional racism, breaking down controversial issues such as judicial discretion and expertly analyzing culturally relevant topics.
