The first ever local version of The Real Housewives of Johannesburg is set to debut on 1Magic, DStv channel 103 on Friday 3 August at 19:00.

Viewers will be privy to the lives of the glamorous wealthy Johannesburg women and take a tour of their wardrobes and get VIP access to their lavish parties from the comfort of their living rooms. We let you in on the mostly private lives of the ladies with the biggest handbag and stilettos collections in town.

The reality series documents the highs and lows of the six fiery affluent characters, as they let Mzansi into their lives – from their luxurious homes to their prestigious family life.

At the centre of The Real Housewives of Johannesburg, we meet Madame, Evodia Mogase, a warm, talkative, straight talker originally from Soweto. She started off as a teacher, then owned a catering business and is today a vegetation expert.

Evodia joins the show with her daughter, Mercy Mogase.  The bubbly health fanatic studied mechanical engineering and later joined Herbal Life as an ambassador and motivational speaker.

We also meet a warm and charming beauty entrepreneur who owns a spa, Brinnette Seopela. She finds her happy ending at the heart of this series and is the glue that holds the Housewives together.
