Bershan confirmed the news to E! News on Tuesday as she told the outlet: "I'm thankful to be a part of the Bravo team and I'm thrilled about the diversity and inclusion this season brings.

"I am a warrior for all people and so are the ladies."

Bershan will be joining the ladies for the 13th season of the Bravo show.

Back in September, rumors had started to circle that Bershan could be joining the cast as a friend of the New York City ladies but it's still not known whether she will hold an apple or simply appear in a couple of episodes.

Sources close to TMZ revealed at the time that RHONY began filming its 13th season despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and Bershan has been spotted filming with the cast.

However, sources couldn't be sure whether Bershan will just be a friend of the show or if she's been offered a spot as a new housewife, especially with Leah's future still unclear.

Bershan, 44, is a two-time breast cancer survivor, a motivational speaker, and a former cast member of Love In The City.

Bershan will be joining Eboni, who was announced to become a housewife back in October.

The host of Revolt Black News said in a statement: "NYC is filled with successful and dynamic Black women. I'm excited to join this legendary franchise as the first Black housewife.

"Can't wait to share a slice of life in this city that hasn't been seen before.

"Anyone who's aware of my work knows I don't hold back. I'm going to keep it just as real here as I do everywhere else."

These two amazing women replaced housewife Dorinda Medley, who was fired last season, and Tinsley Mortimer, who left the Big Apple for the Windy City.
