Shiva was like 6 years engaged to Mohammed Hadid. I already saw it comming that he would never marry her. Glad she got married to her hot and younger boyfriend Niels. She met Niels and he proposed and got married to her less than a year. Her situation is similar to Cassie and P Diddy.
"Notorious for its drunken vacations, cabaret showtunes, and, frankly, its whiteness, The Real Housewives of New York City is finally saying hello to its first ever Black housewife in Season 13. But despite her impressive résumé and the much-needed diversity she brings to Bravo’s second oldest Housewives franchise, attorney and journalist Eboni K. Williams, 37, told The Daily Beast that at the end of the day, she’s just a regular woman in New York City who’s accustomed to standing out.

Now, Williams co-hosts the hip-hop talk show State of the Culture on REVOLT TV, hosts and executive produces REVOLT Black News, and has just launched a new podcast called Holding Court with Eboni K.
