The Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD) are coming back soon with a brand new season, following the explosive and dramatic second season that concluded in late 2022.
The super-rich combined with a dose of drama reality show has become a fan favourite since its debut, and as the new season is getting closer, all eyes are on who the cast members will be.
Pop Pulse revealed who the new cast members of the show are and they have topped the Twitter trends. According to the picture circulating online, Nonkanyiso "LaConco" Conco, Londie London and Makhumalo Mseleku, would not be part of the next season
Although many saw it coming that LaConco and MaKhumalo were possibly not returning back, it seems the bombshell that Londie would not be coming back has shocked everyone.
Londie's personal life has been subject to a lot of speculation, hence sis may have decided to keep it away from the spotlight. If Londie decided to leave the show because of her breakup with her husband, that would make sense. Several months ago, a fan alerted Londie to Hlubi's cheating shenanigans, which the musician confirmed.
Speaking to Dineo Ranaka and Sol Phenduka on the Kaya FM'S 959 Breakfast, Londie finally confirmed that they were no longer together. “I’m finding my way out of marriage. I’m currently not married." She says around April this year she went through the most,” she told Kaya 959.
“It’s been a while because I didn’t go public with it. It was a private matter. I went through quite a bit, especially with the tweets going out because people weren’t sure what was really happening.”
Hence if sis decided to come back this season, she was going to be faced with endless questions about the breakup. Fans took to Twitter to react to this and share their thoughts on the show's new cast.
Tweeps reacted to this @RealTdk1 "If I was Londie, I was gonna come back and face the music… People get cheated on all the time… Marriages fail… But you need to get those coins baby girl… #RHODurban."
@Jaylen_JJ1"The moment Londie had a juicy storyline to offer, she's out. Don't really care much about that Mseleku lady being gone, she didn't offer much anyways. Laconco on the other hand.....she was reality show material, she was needed."
@Mam_Bhele wrote "I really hope Londie has a plan because if I were her I would have used the housewives platform to grow my brand just like what LaC & LeJoy did. Even worse, yena she has real talent in music, she has fumbled this time all in the name of not wanting to explain her divorce."
@MissTinah_M tweeted "Laconco did good by leaving. Understandable for Londie not to return after going through her divorce. Life has drastically changed since then. Thobile should have never gone on the show to begin with. Her brand is just not suited to a show like Housewives."
It is unclear who the other housewives joining the show are, but TV actress Mbali Ngiba will be part of the new season. LaConco and MaKhumalo left viewers unimpressed in the previous season. Viewers felt LaConco was bullying Thobile and not letting them into her private life.
Others felt Thobile's lifestyle and personality were out of sync with the show.
