They are rich, glamourous and sometimes, they can be a little mean. But South Africans absolutely love them.
And now they are back for a new season, with some new faces joining the crew. The Real Housewives of Durban is coming back for a season two.
Thobile MaKhumalo Mseleku, Londie London, and Jojo Robinson will join Nonkanyiso Conco, Nonku Williams, Sorisha Naidoo and Annie Ludick, who will be returning for season 2 along with Mabusi Seme.
MaKhumalo is married to popular polygamist Musa Mseleku and she’s been in the public eye for years. The polygamist’s family have a reality show, Uthando Nes’thembu and she’s also a radio personality on Vuma FM and a motivational speaker.
She decided to join the The Real Housewives of Durban to bring out her individuality more. “Many people know me from Uthando Nes’thembu, and they haven’t had the opportunity to know and understand Thobile as an individual,” she says. “Wherever I go, I’m always associated with the family I’m married into, which is not a bad thing and is not something I have a problem with. However, I do have a life outside of the whole family.”
She was also motivated by a need to find other women like her. “I need people that I can mingle with, people who inspire me and make sense to me,” she says. “I’ve already seen these women do things for themselves, which is inspiring. They are self-driven like I am.”
The reality show will be back on 28 January on Showmax, with new episodes every Friday.
