iRealHousewives Exclusive: Christall Kay Talks About Her Appearance On Come Dine With Me SA, New Music And RHOJ Season 2!

Hello everyone and welcome once again to Claude's Corner on I’m Jean-Claude and today I have Christall Kay from The Real Housewives of Johannesburg. The "Wonder" singer talks to us EXCLUSIVELY about her time on Come Dine With Me SA. Also, Kay gives us an update on her music career and teases her RHOJ return for Season 2 and much more!

Who approached you to join Come Dine With Me SA?
Christall Kay: I was approached by one of the producers of the Come Dine With Me show to be a celebrity guest.

We know you are 'Wonder Woman' but can 'Wonder Woman' cook?
CK: Wonder Woman can cook but she chooses to cook only on special occasions!  I single-handedly cook my whole Christmas lunch!

Did any of the other ladies give you any advise on what should you cook?
CK: No, the other ladies on the show have been very quiet!  I think they are intimidated by my domestic goddess capabilities!

If you could only invite 5 people over for dinner, who would you choose and why?
CK: I would choose the following people to dine with me at my home:

Charlize Theron, as I would like to catch up with her after all these years, and hopefully she would help me out by giving me some great connections in Tinseltown.

President Donald Trump as he is such a character and so controversial which will definitely make for an interesting dinner conversation. I would love to pick his brain over a number of his policies.

The singer Bebe Rexha is such a favourite of mine! She is sexy, controversial and so real. She would really add a fun element, and we'd be sure to have some good music. Maybe her and I could sing a duet to the rest of the table.

I would also love Dolly Parton to be there. I feel like she is my singing mom! I literally grew up on her love and her music.

Finally, HSH Princess Charlene of Monaco as I met the Princess at the Saxon Hotel in Johannesburg, South Africa and we enjoyed a great conversation. I absolutely can't wait to get to Monaco and pop into The Pink Palace!

Would you ever release a cookbook?
CK: Yes! I would love to release a cookbook! I have a great idea for an easy to make low calorie recipe cookbook!

What was your favourite dish?
CK: My favourite dish without thinking about calories is Fettuccine Alfredo!

Who cooks at home?
CK: My maid Princess cooks for us at home.  She is a great cook!

Are you happy how you came across during you're time on Come Dine with Me SA?
CK: I liked the way I came across but I wasn't given a fair hearing with regard to my cooking. I chose two of the most difficult French dishes: cheese soufflé and a chicken and mushroom risotto. It was a very involved cooking process but on completion both my soufflé and risotto were cooked to perfection. Unfortunately by the time the meal was served about 5 hours had elapsed and my soufflé had collapsed and the risotto had gone sticky!! Any way it was great fun wining and dining with the other celebrity contestants: South Africa's most famous fashion designer, Gert Johan-Coetzee; Highveld Radio DJ, Lucky du Plessis and Generations actress and radio and TV personality, Candice Modiselle.

Is Christall fan of a good braai?
CK: I absolutely love a good braai! I am a real meat eater and enjoy everything from the steak to the chops to the boerewors!! The best social gatherings always happen when you you are outdoors having fun!

Overall. was the Come Dine with Me SA experience what you expected?
CK: Cooking isn't my greatest expertise, so it was quite a challenge to be filmed while I prepared my meals! There were a lot of funny moments, even some embarrassing moments and lots of laughs!  All in all it was a great experience!

Which seven "Housewives" from the whole franchise would you invite over for dinner?
CK: I would invite first and foremost NeNe Leakes, Bethenny Frankel, Lisa Vanderpump, Denise Richards, Lisa Rinna, Kim Zolciak Biermann, and of course we could not forget to invite Andy Cohen to stir the honey pot! It would be a night to remember if they all descended upon my home!

Which Real Housewives of Johannesburg co-star cooks the best?
CK:  I am not sure that any of the Real Housewives of Johannesburg can cook very well as none of them ever made a proper meal that I witnessed. Most of the time its the hired help that makes the food, and sometimes mom!

Any word on Series 2 of RHOJ?
CK: As far as I understand the second season of the Real Housewives of Johannesburg is on its way later this year.

Do you know if RHOJ will air outside of SA?
CK: I am not sure if RHOJ will air outside of Johannesburg, however there was talk that it would.

If you could do any other reality show - which one would it be and why?
CK: If I could do another reality show, it would definitely be my own show! I would love to have my own talk shown and as well as a spin-off show from the Real Housewives focusing on my new life and my music journey!

We are waiting for the album - where is it?!
CK: I am currently working on my album with the Klubjumpers! And there are some nice surprises! I can't give a release date but I will be dropping a new single very soon.

Is there a tour coming soon?
CK: A tour is definitely on the cards for the near future! Local and then the US!

If you had to pick 3 South African languages to record songs in which languages would they be?
CK: English, Afrikaans and Zulu would be my preferential languages for song releases.

Some have asked why haven't you released your own version of Nkosi sikelel'Afrika.
CK: (Laughs) I think that is a great idea to create my own version of Nkosi sikelel’iAfrika! I could combine all of the above 3 languages in the anthem!

When is the music video for "Wonder" coming?  We've all been waiting for it!
CK: The Wonder music video has been pretty much in the bag for a while. We are working out some content issues before release as I am planning an exciting remix of Wonder featuring a famous African dancehall star!

Anything you would like to say to your fans?
CK: Yes I would just like too say thanks to all my fans for your continuing support, and that you make it all worth it! I love you lots and look forward to the second season of the Real Housewives of Johannesburg later this year! Download Wonder on iTunes! Please watch out for my next releases too. You will be nicely surprised!
