Williams has another high-profile gig on the way. The attorney was recently announced as the newest member of The Real Housewives of New York City, making her the first Black castmember, theGrio reported.

“[I] can’t wait to share a slice of life in this city that hasn’t been seen before,” she shared. “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 said.

Williams believes her background as a lawyer prepared her for a career in television. During an interview with theGrio, she revealed that both professionally and personally, she operates freely and with intent.

“I’ll speak for me. One thing I’m able to do because of the sacrifices of my lineage is I’m able to be way more intentional about romantic partnership, for instance. Right? I’m able to be way more intentional. My mother raised me as a very confident, very business savvy, brilliant, single Black mother. It’s a beautiful thing, but I am in a position now where I can choose to do that, or I can choose to do it a different way. So that’s an opportunity there for me.”

Williams is also currently the host & executive producer of Revolt Black News.
