Williams went on to say that reality TV as a genre is an undeniable force in television, and in her eyes, it’s better to be part of it than to be overrun by it.
“For better or worse, there is nothing like the impact of reality television. I think we all thought it was gonna be a ‘hit and quit it’ thing, like, maybe 15 years ago,” Williams said. “We’re on 13 seasons of ‘New York,’ 15 seasons, 16 seasons of ‘Orange County.’ It’s not going anywhere. So if you can’t beat ‘em, maybe it’s time to join ‘em.”
The “RHONY” star also added that in “joining them,” she’s been able to help Black women who she says make up more of the viewership than people think.
“I do think that it has been an opportunity to show a different kind of Black womanhood. I think Black women are some of the most misunderstood demographics in our nation,” she said. “And to be able to represent the kinds of Black women that I know, the kinds of Black women I am in sorority with, the kinds of Black women I went to school with, it’s been an honor.”
