RHONY's Eboni K. Williams on If She'd Date Captain Glenn, If She's Met Dad, and Ramona on RHUGT, Plus Sonja Following Luann With Cabaret and "Overrated" Austen Kroll

Eboni K. Williams is looking for romance. And as she revealed on Wednesday night’s Watch What Happens Live, she’s willing to do so in the Bravo universe.

As The Real Housewives of New York City remains in hiatus following a lackluster 13th season, Eboni shared her thoughts on dating a number of personalities from the network, including Captain Glenn Shephard, who recently said he’d date her, before offering an update on her family and reacting to Sonja Morgan‘s new cabaret show.

“I’ll swipe right. Absolutely. He looks very sweet,” Eboni revealed of Captain Glenn on WWHL on March 16.

She would also give a chance to Dolores Catania‘s ex-boyfriendDr. David Principe, saying, “He’s a very nice man.”

“That’s more important than anything else, as long as Dolores doesn’t mind,” she continued.

As for who she wouldn’t “swipe right” for, those honors went to Dennis McKinley, John Mahdessian, and Austen Kroll.

“I really revere [Porsha Williams] and I think that would be messy,” Eboni noted of her potential romance with Porsha’s former fiancé.

And after noting that John “doesn’t need to be anywhere without [Dorinda Medley],” Eboni quickly shot down Austen.

“No, next, next, no, overrated,” she proclaimed of the Southern Charm cast member.

When a fan then asked Eboni if she felt Sonja’s new show would cause a rift between her and Luann de Lesseps, who has been doing cabaret for years, Eboni made it clear she was unconcerned about how Luann would react.

“I don’t care whether or not it causes a rift with Luann. I’m very excited for my friend Sonja Morgan to be relishing in her light,” Eboni declared. “I’m just extremely happy. She’s doing a burlesque cabaret so I’m here for Sonja and all her success.”

Eboni also named Sonja as the RHONY cast member she’s still in touch with.

“That’s my girl,” she confirmed.

While Eboni did not tune into the debut season of Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip, she said her mother was a fan of Ramona Singer‘s performance.

“I did not but I shelled that out to my mother who did watch. And Mama Gloria is a Ramona fan. She is. She says, ‘I don’t care what nobody say, honey, Ramona made it, baby,'” Eboni shared.

Although Eboni skipped RHUGT, she did tune into the Nicki Minaj-hosted Real Housewives of Potomac reunion.

“Nicki killed it, she was fabulous, as I would expect from the queen,” Eboni said in response to the rapper’s performance.

Following the 13th season of RHONY, during which Eboni was able to learn the identity of her father, Eboni confirmed she has “still not met my biological father.” However, she is loving the time she’s gotten to spend with her sisters.

“I haven’t talked to him much but my sisters are fantastic. I met them. They are beautiful… [And] they’ll fight somebody in the streets for me now on Housewives,” she shared.

Amid the RHONY hiatus, Eboni took a guest hosting position on The View and hopes to be asked back soon.

“I hope to return in any capacity they would have me,” Eboni admitted.

She also appeared on Beyond the Edge, a celebrity survival series based out of the jungles of Panama, which she compared to RHONY, saying, “I probably cried more on Beyond the Edge, but I’m going to say RHONY emotionally, Beyond the Edge, physically.”

As for the status of her love life, Eboni said, “Well, I’m not married.”
