Here at GLAMOUR HQ, we’re kinda obsessed with the Real Housewives (especially Atlanta, FYI)! So when we heard the news that the hit reality franchise is making it’s way to Mzansi shores, we literally shrieked for joy!
Viewers will be privy to the lives of the glamorous wealthy Johannesburg women and take a tour of their wardrobes and get VIP access to their lavish parties from the comfort of their living rooms. We let you in on the mostly private lives of the ladies with the biggest handbag and stilettos collections in town.
The reality series documents the highs and lows of the six fiery affluent characters, as they let Mzansi into their lives – from their luxurious homes to their prestigious family life.
At the centre of The Real Housewives of Johannesburg, we meet Madame, Evodia Mogase; a warm, talkative, straight talker originally from Soweto. She started off as a teacher, then owned a catering business and is today a vegetation expert.
Evodia joins the show with her daughter, Mercy Mogase. The bubbly health fanatic studied mechanical engineering and later joined herbal life as an ambassador and motivational speaker.
We also meet a warm and charming beauty entrepreneur who owns a spa, Brinnette Seopela. She finds her happy ending at the heart of this series and is the glue that holds the Housewives together.
If you have been wondering who is the woman behind The Naked DJ? A former Miss Botswana, 2nd princess, Naledi Willers. The Real Housewives of Johannesburg reveals her life as a wife, a Law student with a strong presence as she leaves no stone unturned and speaks her mind.
Alongside these interesting ladies on the move is a former lawyer turned businesswoman with ambitions of becoming a superstar, Christall Kay. Originally from Durban, Christall has walked the runway as a model and bagged a couple of commercials to prepare for a career as a singer. Watch how she balances it all.
Lastly, we step into Busisiwe Ter Mors’ heels, also known as Lendy. A keen golfer born in South Africa but raised in England. She is a mother of two with enough time to enjoy the joys of being a housewife, from living an affluent lifestyle to enjoying simple get-togethers hosting her friends and family.
The Real Housewives of Johannesburg is set to debut on 1Magic, DStv channel 103 on Friday 3 August at 19:00.
