The ‘RHONY’ Intro Features the Women in Black, White, or Silver Gowns With Gold Apples
The theme for the new season of “The Real Housewives of New York” appears to be glitz and glam. The ladies are all dressed to the nines in gorgeous gowns of the same color palette.
Sonja is in a white gown with one shoulder exposed and a high slit that hits her thigh. Ebony appears to be wearing a black leather number that also exposes one shoulder and features a thigh-high slit. Luann is in the middle of the group in a white gown that is covered in sequins or gems. Luann’s dress features a slim strap on one shoulder, and is the third dress to have a thigh-high slit.
Leah is the only “housewife” wearing a mini-dress. Her black lace number features long sleeves, and has less fabric across her midriff. And, lastly, Ramona is in a long silver gown that has a very deep V-neck that exposes her cleavage.
All of the women are posing holding gold apples in their hands.
Eboni K. Williams Is the First Black Cast Member on ‘RHONY’
Eboni is the first Black woman to join the cast of “RHONY.” According to her Instagram page, she is the host and the executive producer of “Revolt Black News” and “Holding Court with Eboni K. Williams.” According to her IMDb page, she has hosted several shows, including “The Real,” “Access Hollywood,” and “The Wendy Williams Show.”

Can’t wait to share a slice of life in this city that hasn’t been seen before. Anyone who’s aware of my work knows I don’t hold back. I’m going to keep it just as real here as I do everywhere else,” she previously told People magazine.
