Have you met the Season 2, Real Housewives of Johannesburg cast?
The show has brilliant and classy actresses. Read on to find out information about The Real Housewives of Johannesburg husbands and the stars themselves.
Brinnette Seopela is a spa owner. At the age of 40 years, the star is considering many ways of getting a child because she feels that age is not on her side. Brinnete was planning a lavish white wedding with a traditional theme in season 1.
She married a businessman, Themba Gezane, and they went to New York for their honeymoon. They split after five months in marriage because her husband was abusive. Themba defended himself and explained that he was never served divorce papers. He said:
I postponed our honeymoon for a week because she had had a miscarriage, and I wanted to mourn. On our way back, we weren't talking. She was upset about the amount of money I gave her to spend on herself there. We landed in the morning and by the afternoon she was gone, only to come back in the early hours of the next morning. Even before we got married, she'd go out and come back at ungodly hours.
Christall Kay was born and raised in Durban, but she currently resides in Kyalami, South Africa. She is a businesswoman, singer, and a former lawyer. Her songs have been featured on Top Billing and several television houses in South Africa. Projects are underway for her single hit, Run Through the Fire, to be released alongside her complete album in which she plans to feature Buffalo Souljah (reggae artist) and Gigi Lamayne (rapper).
She separated from her husband, Eddie Greeff (financial advisor). She said:
My husband never liked the idea of having our lives out there in the public domain, and that was one of the reasons our marriage failed. Eddie never understood my passion was in the arts. He would have been happy if I worked as a lawyer and lived a private life, but that's not who I am.
Christall has a strained relationship with her fellow co-star Brinnette. She said:
The only reason I speak to her is because she's in the new season, and I just have to grin and bear it. Not to sound spicy or anything, but it was very evident from the first time we met that we are not each other's cup of tea. Brinnette and I have different personalities. I like spice and adventure, and she is boring. She was the first girl to tell everyone she didn't like me, and it went both ways. I don't feel like I can trust her.
