Evodia ‘Madam’ Mogase And Mercy Mogase Admit Their Spin-Off Show ‘Madam And Mercy’ Was ‘Inspired’ By The Kardashians! Plus Madam Reveals The Reason Why She And Her Daughter Didn’t Return To RHOJ!

Evodia “Madam” Mogase and her daughter Mercy are spilling the tea about their spin-off series, Madam and Mercy. The mother-daughter duo, who appeared on the first season of The Real Housewives of Johannesburg, reveals what viewers can expect their 13-part reality show.

“Viewers are going to see another side of me that they have never seen before. I am letting my people into my own space, from my humble beginnings to where I am today. You are going to see me at my lowest,” Madam told City Press.

She says viewers are going see the tight mother-daughter bond she has with her two daughters, Mercy and Princess.

“My fans are going to see the respect and love I have for my family and the people I work with.”

Madam, who grew up in a middle class family in Diepkloof, Soweto, was raised by her factory worker mother, Louisa, and salesman father, Reuben.

Madam says she and Mercy were inspired by the Kardashians to have their own reality show.

“It has always been my dream to have my own show, even before I was cast in The Real Housewives of Johannesburg. On this show, Mercy and I are very hands-on as executive producers. I am glad that finally we are telling our story.”

Madam believes her story is going to inspire young people to never give up on their dreams. In 2009 she filed for divorce as her late husband was cheating.

“To women, don’t give up on your dreams. If you failed in life, whether in business or in marriage, never blame yourself,” she revealed. “You are not a failure. Pick yourself up, go back to the drawing board and start all over again. I hope my story will be a beacon of hope to others.”

Madam also set the record straight on why she refused to be cast in the second season of The Real Housewives of Johannesburg.

She was accused of being a diva who demanded to be paid a lot of money. She, however, denied the accusations.

“It was about being treated fairly as a cast member. People must learn to acknowledge other people when they are doing good.”

She was adamant that, with the current approach and terms, she would not return to the show.

“The producers should have the decency to sit down with me and come up with a better offer.”

Mercy says people are going to see her real personality. “Previously, the Real Housewives narrated a different side of me, but this time around people are going to see the challenges I go through as a young entrepreneur,” Mercy told City Press. “We also get to speak about issues we are going through daily as women. Viewers are going to realize that, in fact, we went through all these journeys while we were shooting.”
