It looks like Ramona Singer IS going to the ‘Real Housewives of New York’ reunion after all — but she’s afraid Eboni K. Williams will make her look like a racist.

TMZ claims Singer, 64, approached producers about the possibility of her not attending due to Williams, 37, potentially attempting to paint her as a racist during the Bravo special, even asking if they can avoid the topic of race altogether.
Production reportedly refused, saying that’s something they would never consider. It would also be difficult to avoid the topic, as this is Williams’ — the first Black cast member of this franchise — first season.
Singer has reportedly accepted their decision and will still be in attendance, though she felt it important that producers were aware of her concerns ahead of the event.
Singer and Williams have clashed several times throughout the season, beginning when Singer referred to her house staff as “the help” in front of their fellow cast mates.
“Honey, nobody is the help,” Williams said in a confessional that episode. “It’s derogatory and it’s demeaning.”
The pair also butt heads when Williams attempted to talk politics with Singer, which she repeatedly stated makes her uncomfortable, calling Williams “preachy.”
There was also a moment where Singer told Williams that she doesn’t understand how the attorney and successful media personality, can talk about “suffering.”
“You said you’ve suffered. I said, ‘Looking at you, I don’t think you suffer,’” she told Williams.
The reunion was scheduled to film in early August, but has been bumped to September due to “scheduling conflicts.”
It sounds like the powers that be let Ramona know if she quits, she’s out, and she decided to stick around.
