    RHONY's Eboni K Williams

    RHONY's Eboni K Williams

    EBONI K WILLIAMS IS IN THE HOUSE! RHONY newcomer and TV royalty (Fox News, CNN, Revolt TV) joined The Take On. Eboni is such a breath of fresh air and is as real as she is on RHONY. The New York Housewives franchise definitely needed a refresh and Eboni really understood the assignment. She had a lot on her shoulders coming into this season and she did it with so much grace. We broke down her freshmen season and how she navigated race when it comes to LuAnn and Ramona. We also talked her relationship with Leah McSweeney and where their friendship is at today. The tea was spilled so much it almost ruined my mic! Of course we also dived into why a RHONY reunion ain't happening, which is a historical first for a housewives franchise. Eboni made it so easy to have a conversation it felt like I was talking to my girlfriend at our favorite bar. This is the juiciest BUT also the most educational episode of both seasons of The Take On, but then again what else do you expect from EBONI K WILLIAMS?! If you love Bravo TV and love RHONY, then this is the episode for you!

    Jake Hunter // @JakeHunterOfficial // TikTok Finds

    Jake Hunter Joined The Take On and we talked all things being an influencer and mental health. Jake understands that have millions of followers or an Emmy will NOT necessarily bring you happiness (btw he has both those things). We talk about happiness and how it’s more of a process rather than a destination. Jake is all James Dean exterior (FYI he’s gorgeous!) but all marshmallow and sweet on the inside. Jake created hilarious TikToks but has an amazing energy on Clubhouse and creates safe spaces for people to be their most authentic selves. If you’re feeling down and need a quick pick me up, then this is the episode for you.
    More about Jake:
    Jake Hunter is an Emmy winning actor and producer with over 1.5 million social media followers in Los Angeles, CA. Jake acted alongside Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones in The Comeback Trail, slated for release later in 2020. He is also producing the Shakespeare adapted play King Lear starring Al Pacino.
    On the digital front, Jake has showcased his comedic side on TikTok where his “Karen” themed series received over 125 million views. He was recently recognized by the Washington Post for his videos and currently has brand deals with Bang Energy, Draft Kings, and Raw Sugar.

A Little Self-Awareness Please

First time listening. Maybe you’re unaware but at times, most of people on this podcast episode sounded like the racist Meghan-haters in the UK. Predicting divorce was a low. Unsubscribed.
