Meet the Housewives:

Brinnette Seopela captures the true essence of beauty with brains. The glamorous Beauty Entrepreneur won over the hearts of South Africans when she appeared on the first season of the Real Housewives of Johannesburg. She constantly delighted viewers with her fashion sense, her subtle shade and bubbly personality.

She’s covered in diamonds… all the time! Originally from Durban, Christall Kay juggles her opulent high-end lifestyle with family, as she is raising her son with her husband, as well as working on a bubbling pop career. The popstar, who's highly anticipated single, Wonder, recently premiered with new visuals, has promised an even more exciting second season.

Lebo Jojo Gunguluza: Originally from Welkom, Jojo is not only the hardest working young woman you’ll encounter in the hustle driven streets of Jozi. But at her young age, the triumphant entrepreneur is also quite established in what she does. The 27 year old boasts the impressive accolade of being the youngest magazine publisher in town. A sharp business mind in her own right, Lebo is also married to the renowned Lebo Gunguluza of Dragon’s Den. Yes, their names are the same. Soulmates, you said? You will have to tune in to watch her spread her wings and soar in the second season of Real Housewives of Johannesburg!

Known affectionately as ‘Le’Joy’, Lethabo Mathatho is a vibrant embodiment of her nickname. The 33 year old Radio and TV personality never shies away from being the boldest voice in all the rooms she walks in! True to her name, LeJoy wants to spread and much love and joy through the upliftment of young girls who are less fortunate.

Mpho Merriweather is at the top of her game by a mile. Not only is she acing the role of Project Manager for major events around the country, she’s also a trained jewellery designer. She believes its her destiny to trot around the globe and experience different cultures. A devoted mother of 5, and a ‘blended family Queen’, Mpho is really to deliver a refreshing sighting on the Real Housewives of Johannesburg.

Born and raised in Tsakane, Springs, Nompumelelo Thandeka Mophatlane’s upbringing toughened her up. Being the daughter of a former taxi boss certainly familiarised her the tough texture of the business world, which informs how she navigates the spaces she walks in. The theatre graduate, who juggles business with being a mother of three, and a devoted wife, is also a reformed shopaholic! But while she loves the finer things of life, Mpumi is all about being a mom and a housewife.

An international actress, a socialite, a businesswoman, a producer and a housewife walk into a bar…Just kidding! All of the above is one person. The absolutely terrific Tarina Patel, who is about to release a book, is adding the title of author to her long list of impressive attributes. She spends her time in between India and Jozi for work and the sparkling parties. Also a devoted wife of eleven years, Tarina navigates her many roles between commercials, magazine covers, Bollywood and beyond!
