Another first for local viewers, the cast of The Real Housewives of Johannesburg is made up of six gorgeous ladies sourced from around the country. The show is set to debut on 1Magic on August 3.

The Real Housewives brand is mostly known for showcasing the lavish lifestyles of housewives with larger-than-life personalities, along with their controversial relationships. Most of these women are well-off in their own right and let us into their luxurious homes where they dish out intimate moments throughout the show.

Despite the misconception that people have about housewives, this batch is far from typical. They are ordinary modern women, doing all it takes to stay on top of their A-game.
