After a teary, water-throwing finale, Season 2 of The Real Housewives of Durban will wrap up with a two-part reunion on 6 and 13 May 2022. Speaking about how excited he is to have landed this major hosting gig he said.

“I’ve always been intrigued by this concept and this show,” said Donovan, a well-known comedian, presenter, MC and facilitator, who also acts in the hit film One Night Kwa Mxolisi. “I was excited to host the reunion because I really wanted to meet the wives and get to know more about this world from them," he added.

“Donovan was the perfect host because he came with the right amount of humour, the right amount of compassion, and the right amount of love for all of the ladies and the storylines on The Real Housewives of Durban,” said Let It Rain Films executive producer Sam Kelly. “Some divides are going to be cemented and some bridges are going to be built, so it’s a great reunion.”

Twitter users have reacted to the announcement.

Season 2 topped Twitter regularly on Friday throughout its run, with stars Annie, Jojo, LaConco, Londie, Mabusi, MaKhumalo, Nonku, and Sorisha also trending. As Zalebs says, the show “never ceases to amaze the viewers” and is “nothing short of sassy, glamorous and dramatic.”

After Nonku’s mother, Queen, faced off with Ayanda Ncwane in the controversial Season 1 reunion over damages, the Season 2 reunion has a lot to live up to - but there’s no shortage of tensions that need to be resolved from Season 2, especially after Indaba Ka Petal about LaConco’s mystery man, Jojo throwing a drink at Mabusi.

The season finale  also left many viewers reaching out for the tissues after Nonku opened up about possibly having a drinking problem, admitting she drinks in order to escape the harsh realities of life.

"I’ve been hinting that I’m going through some stuff… because there is just a lot on my plate. A lot of things that I’m dealing with, you know? Being a single parent and there’s is a lot on me. I don’t want to call it a burden but at times I just feel so alone that I had to really, really look into this thing (drinking alcohol) that you guys said you were concerned about,” she explained.

MaKhumalo was called out for distancing herself from the group. She stood up for herself saying she does not distance herself from the squad but she just won’t speak when she has nothing to say, "I am not distancing myself, I am not disappearing. I just won't speak when I don't have anything to say."

With no The Real Housewives of Durban for fans last Friday, The Real Housewives of Lagos took centre stage, trending in both Nigeria and South Africa. Carolyna’s bohemian-inspired dinner party went from 0-100 real quick, with Carolyna and Laura getting into a heated argument about Laura’s sister, blogger Linda Ikeji, who Carolyna blamed in part for the breakdown of her marriage. New episodes drop every Friday, to fill that Durban-sized hole in fans’ hearts (and Twitter timelines).
