The company behind the show Tiger Media said they are ready to roll, though they don’t have an official channel yet they are hoping to premier as soon as early next year (2015).
The cast comprises of mostly unknown rich folks, yawn worthy Top Billing ‘meet the house owners edition” type of people. I don’t know any of these ladies except for Mshoza Sorisha Naidoo, whom I loved in Scandal and Easten mosaic when she was still a brown girl. Hopefully her Mshozaness doesn’t take away from her inner beauty and spirit that I grew fond of while she was on the above mentioned shows.
The rest to me are foreign I don’t know them, which makes me very uneasy but nobody knew who Nene Leakes was before the RHOA, yet she brought us fun and fierce. Hopefully these ladies are not a bunch of Cynthia’s AND Porshas.
The production company says SA version won’t be anything like the US one, as much as I encourage and support originality I still would like to see the Miss Lawrence, Brandons Ms DerekJs of Jozi. I mean what is a housewife without her Gay Best Friend? Are you looking forward to Jozi’s own Real Housewives?
