The newcomer is flaunting her purse.
Noella Bergener, a rookie to “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” uploaded a nearly naked photograph of herself on Instagram on Friday, with just a beige crossbody bag covering her most sensitive bits.
“Now that I have your attention.. Buy Black Owned 🖤 #blackownedfriday #buyblackowned #buyblackfirst #supportblackownedbusinesses #supportblackdesigners,” she captioned the stunning photo.
Ari500’s laser-cut leather “Ora” handbag ($555) was slung across the new real housewife’s body. According to Page Six, the NYC-based brand is developed by Parsons School of Design alum Ariane Duhaney.
She completed her ensemble with a pair of Salone Monet “Sable” stiletto sandals ($295), another black designer known for her color-inclusive nude shoes.
Bergener joined the cast of “RHOC” in Season 16, becoming the show’s first black “Housewife” in the franchise’s effort for greater diversity.
When Garcelle Beauvais joined Season 10 in 2019, she became the first woman of color to appear on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” and Crystal Kung Minkoff joined Season 11 in 2020 as the first Asian American cast member.
During the most recent season of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” Eboni K. Williams made history as the first black cast member to appear on the show. The franchise has yet to be renewed for a second season.
James Bergener, Noella’s estranged husband, filed divorce papers in Puerto Rico in August, according to a plotline that has yet to be completely explored on the Bravo program. They married only a year ago, in June 2020, and have a two-year-old son named James Bergener II.
“The Real Housewives of Orange County” season 16 premieres on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. Bravo’s ET.
