  'Runaway train': Serena wins French Open opener; Nadal, too PARIS (AP) No matter how much success they've had over the years, and to this day, Serena Williams and Rafael Nadal both profess to deal with doubts. Both began this French Open with straight-set victories against overmatched foes in Court Philippe Chatrier on Monday.And both have something significant at stake over the coming two weeks: a chance to equal a record for Grand Slam singles titles. Williams already has 23, the most by anyone in the professional era; one more will allow her to tie Margaret Court's all-era mark.

On "RHONY," Williams will join returning cast members, Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Leah McSweeney, and Sonja Morgan.

Earlier this year, the reality show announced that Tinsley Mortimer, who moved to Chicago, and Dorinda Medley, wouldn't be returning to the series.

Williams' arrival to "RHONY" follows a trend in Bravo reality shows to diversify its cast. Actress Garcelle Beauvais became the first Black woman to join the cast of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" last year, and "Southern Charm" added a person of color to their cast: Leva Bonaparte, an Indian-born Persian woman who runs Charleston nightlife.
