‘RHONY’: Sonja Morgan ‘Shocked’ Eboni K. Williams the Most, Says She Was Treated Like a ‘Hurt Dog’
Eboni K. Williams reflected on The Real Housewives of New York City, sharing that Sonja Morgan shocked her the most. Williams experienced an unexpected connection with Morgan, but she was also shocked with the way some of the cast treated her, particularly how Luann de Lesseps came for Morgan, especially during a van ride this season.
Eboni K. Williams shares why Sonja Morgan shocked her the most
“Sonja Morgan shocked me the most,” she admitted on the Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef podcast in June. “And it wasn’t the townhouse first episode. She shocked me because as you’re seeing in real-time, like where we are right now, episodically. This Hampton’s trip is where I started to see Sonja and she started to see me.”
Williams said she truly felt a connection with Morgan, especially during a tough moment in the van ride. “I’ll tell you where I think it really started,” she said. “It was in the Sprinter when we were all going to the wine tasting. And, you know, I don’t know any of these women that well, other than Leah. So I’m getting to know them. And I’m listening to this conversation between Lou [de Lesseps] and Sonja and it’s kind of breaking my heart.”
Eboni K. Williams doesn’t like how Luann de Lesseps came for Sonja Morgan
Williams also didn’t approve of how de Lesseps came for Morgan and the comments she made about Morgan. “You know, that Lou is just really coming for this woman who just clearly to me, is suffering from broken heartedness and sadness around loss of love, loss of her marriage, all these different things,” Williams observed.
“And Lou is just really going for the jugular,” she asserted. “You know, calling her, you know, a one-night stand, small-brained, all this. I’m like child. Now, I don’t know what went down with the Toms and dis and the Harry’s and it ain’t my business. But what I do know is even if she, you know, gave him a b–w job on Fifth Avenue, she’s a grown woman. And she gets to do that without her friend of 20 years … that’s what y’all told me. Y’all were shaming her around that. And making her feel even worse than she clearly already feels.”
Sonja Morgan was treated like a wounded dog, Eboni K. Williams says
Williams likened the treatment to kicking a wounded dog. “It’s like kind of kicking a hurt dog, you know?” she said. “And it wasn’t about protecting Sonja. I want to be clear at that point, cause I didn’t know her that well. It was just about doing what I felt like morally was the right thing to do, which was support. And you know what? This is probably the lawyer in me too, right?”
“This is the naturally trained advocate that says when someone can’t like use their words because they’re caught up in a, in a sad emotional state, let me offer up my advocacy skills to, to use my words for them,” she added. “And if it had been Luann that was being called small-brained and a one-night stand and a side piece of low value, I would have done the same thing.”
