Eboni searches for her father
Eboni has decided to work with a woman – an investigator – who is helping her in the search for her biological father.
During the midseason trailer, she reveals that she is “working to find the answers to her father’s story”.
While looking at test results, she is in shock that one of three specific men is her father, who she never knew growing up.
She was later told that the three men who could potentially be her father are “still alive”, despite thinking he had passed.
The investigator said there was one man in particular, married with two daughters, who seemed to be the best match “based on his age”.
Who was Eboni K. Williams’ father?

A woman called Ashley initially reached out to Eboni to tell her she believes they may share the same father, a man called Kenneth.
Eboni explained in a confessional:
Kenneth is Ashley’s father. I did not have a relationship with Kenneth. My mother, during our trips to see her family in Louisiana – knowing that he could potentially be my dad – we had a handful of visits.
Since having a call with each other, Ashley agreed to do a DNA test to find out if Eboni and her share the same father, but there was not a match.
But after finding out her potential dad is still alive, Eboni was told: “The youngest daughter bears a very strong resemblance to you, as does who I believe is your father.”
As reported by She Started It, an online source claimed that Eboni’s father is called Gary, but the RHONY star herself has not confirmed this.
The same source reportedly said her parents split up while she was young.
Some fans have been left confused about how she does not know his name. Since finding out he may be alive, Eboni said she wanted to “sit” with the news before deciding if she would ever want to reach out to him.

RHONY: Eboni’s childhood and roots
Eboni was raised by a single mother during her childhood.
She grew up in Louisiana alongside mom Gloria J. Williams. Eboni’s mom and grandmother were the “only family she had”.
Eboni told Bravo Insider:
I think I carried a lot of shame around family coming into that experience with the healer, because I grew up with a single mother. I never knew my father; not only didn’t know him, didn’t even know who he was. So I had no identity as it related to my paternity.
She also revealed that her mom empowered her as a kid, and said reading books about the Black experience was a big part of her life as a kid.
