Real Housewives of Durban What is the show about?

Showmax‘s newest show follows the lavish lives of Ethekwini’s aristocrats. The reality TV show takes on the form of the Real Housewives franchise, where we get a glimpse into the lifestyles and rich-people trials and tribulations of a group of frenemies who, despite their loathe, can’t live without each other.

It’s the kind of toxicity that makes for great entertainment. Real Housewives of Durban will premiere on DStv’s 1Magic (ch. 103) on Friday 29 January 2021.

Those with a Showmax subscription can access the full premiere right now.
