After years hoping to form a relationship with at least one of her biological parents, Stacie Turner, the sole African-American lead of “The Real Housewives of D.C.,” has reunited with her father in Nigeria.
The long-awaited reunion took place this week, and Stacie shared the experience with her fans via Twitter.
“An unbelievable reunion with my Papa in my village of Amaocha Afara,” Stacie wrote Saturday.
During the show’s first season, Stacie revealed to friends and TV fans that she’d found her Caucasian birth mother, but the woman was not interested in meeting Stacie. However, she did share that Stacie’s father was Nigerian. That led Stacie and her husband, Jason, to the Nigerian Embassy. The rest, as they say, is history.
According to reports, Stacie also met 10 siblings and a huge extended family.
Stacie was apparently welcomed with opened arms, and her reunion made front-page news in media outlets in Nigeria. The entire reunion is believed to have been caught on tape for airing during the second season of the reality show.
“Jason and I have the entire experience on film,” she tweeted.
