After a three-year hiatus, The Real Housewives of Johannesburg (RHOJ) promises to revive the drama and glamour that made it so popular.
Lebo ‘Jojo’ Mokoena, Lethabo ‘LeJoy’ Mathatho, Keabetswe Marema, Thobekile Mdlalose, Nicole Watson and Mamus Koka will join season three of the highly-anticipated show which will premiere on Friday 19 May 2023 on 1Magic, DStv channel 103.
Season 3 will follow the all-new group, with some familiar faces, of six dynamic women as they navigate their lives and get a glimpse into their lavish lifestyles, friendship dynamics, romantic relationships, as well as everything else in between. The show highlights both their successes and struggles in their personal lives as well as the drama that unfolds when the six get together.
RHOJ audiences know Lebo ‘Jojo’ Mokoena‘s old soul. Last time around, all of her ventures were tied to her ex-husband, but now she is setting out on her own. Currently, the host of a podcast and radio show is in the process of self-discovery. Lebo is ready to see what life looks like as a single businesswoman.
Lethabo ‘LeJoy’ Mathatho is no stranger to the RHOJ franchise, returning from season 2 hoping to change the narrative and reintroduce herself. This time around, Lethabo wants to use her platform to support and uplift the boychild – all while building her empire. With a thriving career and having achieved huge success over the years, is Lethabo ready for the next big step in her life?
Keabetswe Marema is the type of wild-spirited woman who will book an expensive VIP table opposite her husband from whom she is separated, just to prove a point. Born and raised in Soweto, the mother of three is married to a multi-millionaire who counts stacks of cash in broad daylight. This season viewers will get to know Kea’s interesting and complicated family dynamic and the opulence of her day-to-day life as she embarks on a journey of self-discovery and healing while finding her passions and financial freedom from her ten-year marriage. Kea’s story is one of love, sacrifices and trauma. Her goal is to encourage women to love themselves first and to realize that it’s never too late to find their happiness and everything else they deserve.
A self-made millionaire and traditional healer, Thobekile Mdlalose is a former TV producer and director who knows how to get the action rolling. The advocate for healthy lifestyles is launching a charity organisation she hopes will alleviate period poverty and teach girls how to be financially independent. In their home, her husband has presented a dilemma by urging them to expand their family.
Dynamic serial entrepreneur and newly divorced Nicole Watson has the right mix for a reality television personality. She has taken on the challenge of creating successful businesses while dealing with challenges in her personal life. The Steyn City resident and Miss Know It All does not shy away from a “teachable” moment with her castmates, has a plethora of international connections and celebrity friends and while dedicated to her son, she makes time for the Nicci Lee Watson Foundation which is centred on youth development.
Mamus Koka‘s life is very colourful, with twists and turns on the way to becoming a force to be reckoned with. By day she works as an HR administrator for an NGO organisation and by night, on occasion, she shares content on her YouTube channel where she talks about a variety of topics while also hosting a podcast with her husband called, Couple of Things. Despite her desire to continuously learn and grow, Mamus does not enjoy hard work in life, even if she can if necessary.
