Who are The Real Housewives of Johannesburg?
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, 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 these fabulous Housewives together.
If you have been wondering who is the woman behind The Naked DJ? Well, it’s a former Miss Botswana – second princess, Naledi Willers. The Real Housewives of Johannesburg reveals her life as a wife and a law student with a strong presence. Naledi Willers leaves no stone unturned and speaks her mind.
Alongside these interesting women 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. Busisiwe Ter Mors is 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 a posh lifestyle to enjoying simple get-togethers hosting friends and family.
Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net, Reneilwe Sema, adds: “We are excited to be able to bring our viewers a South African version of The Real Housewives, a great franchise that has done so well internationally. The Real Housewives of Johannesburg will be a great treat for 1Magic viewers”.
Friday viewing is sure going to be interesting as we follow the women living the life that many dream of. The Real Housewives format is distributed by NBCUniversal International Formats.
