The Real Housewives Of Johannesburg Is Getting New Production Company For Season 3!

The production company, RHOSA, who is responsible for producing the first two seasons of The Real Housewives of Johannesburg has officially closed its doors. Philly Kubheka, M-Net's senior publicity manager at local productions said the production companies partners' Sonia Mbele, Rebone Sesing and Pebble Gqunta cited irreconcilable differences for closing the company.

However, Kubheka said that the South African reality series, The Real Housewives of Johannesburg will not be affected by the closure as the network sent out a brief for season three and many companies pitched for the 1Magic hit reality series.

In an official statement, Kubheka said the new production company will be announced once the reality show is commissioned.

"The partners sighted irreconcilable differences for closing the company. As channel we ensured that "The Real Housewives of Johannesburg" was not affected by the company shutting down hence we were able to produce a great show for the next season. Season 3 was briefed out and different companies came to pitch. We will announce the production company once the show gets commissioned," Kubheka told IOL Entertainment in a statement.

According to other reports, Mbele had nothing but kind words for her partners when contacted for comment.

“With any company you start, you do it with the greatest of intentions but, like any bad marriage, when it’s no longer working, you dissolve the marriage and move on.”

The Real Housewives of Johannesburg made its debut in August 2018. The first series consisted of six ladies: Brinnette Seopela, Christall Kay, mother and daughter, Evodia and Mercy Mogase, Lendy Ter Mors and Naledi Willers.

However, the series returned for a second season with a major cast shakeup - Seopela and Kay were the two only original cast members that returned to the series. They were joined by new cast members Lebo JoJo Gunguluza, Lethabo Mathatho, Mpho Merriweather, Mpumi Mophatlane and Tarina Patel.

The reality show has been one of the most streamed shows in South Africa.
