Sorisha Naidoo

“The Sorisha in season one and two has been chilled, mild and very nice. I’m an empath, and I’ve always been an empath, but I feel like there is also a time where one realizes that enough is enough. I’ve taken on a spiritual journey to find myself,” she explained. “This journey is also teaching me how to be more assertive, which means I have to learn to say no and do things differently and I’ve started doing that. I’ve really started to come into my own. When you reach your mid-40s, you realize how you want your life to pan out and I’m just out here getting and doing what I want, not for anyone else. I’m putting myself first.”

Nonku Williams

“In season one, people didn’t really know me and I was also still trying to establish and put my name out there so I felt very misunderstood. Season two came, and people then started to get to know Nonku a bit better. Now in season three, I think I’ve established myself. I am understood and even though fame comes with the territory, I am not interested in fame, all I want is to be effective.”

Annie Ludick

“I don’t think Annie from season one and two will be any different from this upcoming season. I think in season three we’ll be unravelling more layers of who I am. I also think I was viewed as a bit of a harsh individual – not to say that I will stop speaking my mind but I’m hoping in this season viewers will understand why I am such a person.”

JoJo Robinson

“I really tried to come into this season with a new level of calm, but unfortunately that went out the window really fast. I feel like my life in general has become more extra!  We’ve bought new cars; I have a new body, new tattoos and we’re doing major alterations to our home. The soft life has somewhat become softer and I’m here for it.”

Slindile Wendy Ndlovu

“I echo my cast members’ sentiments about the vast opportunities The Real Housewives of Durban presents for all of us, and especially for our overall personal growth. For me, this is an avenue to start all over and rebuild not only as an individual but also as a single mother. I come from a six-year relationship, which I feel I wasted my time and energy in. I gave it my all, so when that didn’t work out, I thought, ‘Why not? Let me try this’. This platform grants you the chance to promote and rebrand, especially when you’re coming from a place of starting over again.”

Maria Isabella Valaskatzis

The Real Housewives of Durban is such an amazing platform, where women can showcase their personalities and talents. The show consists of cast members that have very strong personas and I think that my personality will help balance out the various types of energies that we all have. The decision to join is also rooted in my activism for women empowerment and mental health. So I believe that by having this cohesion with the other six ladies, we can definitely use this platform to make change and inspire other women.”

 Mbaliyezwe Ngiba

“I joined season three as it felt like a great opportunity for me to be a part of such a successful franchise amongst such amazing women. When watching season one and two, I couldn’t shake off the feeling that I’d also add great value as a cast member. So when they approached me I agreed. I also joined because I’d like to see some personal growth within myself as an individual and as a business.”
