“I’ve always been intrigued by this concept and this show,” says 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.”
“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
,” says 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.”
Season 2 topped Twitter regularly on Friday throughout its run. With stars Annie, Jojo, LaConco, Londie, Mabusi, MaKhumalo, Nonku, and Sorisha also trending.
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 water at Mabusi, and MaKhumalo being called out for distancing herself from the group.
