It looks like the Real Housewives of Durban are about to welcome another member to their posh posse if reports are to be believed..

Gugu Khathi is set to join the show and add even more drama to the party.

Real Housewives of Durban has already proven itself to be one of the most exciting shows on South African television right now, even if it is exclusively available on streaming platform Showmax.

People have flocked to their apps (both TV and mobile!) in a bid to keep up with the events as they have unfolded on the country’s spiciest show. Now it looks as if the drama is about to multiply after it was announced that DJ Tira‘s wife, Gugu Khathi, will be joining the volatile cast.

She will either blend right in or add some drama to the mix and we can’t wait to see how it all unfolds.

Confirmed: Gugu Khathi to enter the fray

Gugu Khathi is a respected name in the South African music and entertainment industry, having worked alongside her superstar husband DJ Tira and learned the ropes of the music industry. She is also a mother to three children with the DJ and between her personal and professional life, she is easily one of the busiest women in Durban. This is why it made sense to include her on the roster of Real Housewives of Durban and the announcement has raised excitement levels across the country.

Insiders revealed to Daily Sun that the entrepreneur will be bringing something different to the upcoming episodes in the show’s debut season.

Gugu is excited to join RHOD!

Gugu herself was excited to confirm the news with the media. She revealed that she had every intention of not only changing perceptions around her image, but also to empower the women of South Africa across all age groups.

Speaking to the paper, she added, “I want to be looked at in another light. “It will be my responsibility to show off women who’re able and want to empower others. “This is the perfect platform for me, even though I will not be a full-time cast member.”


Do you think Gugu will bring drama, excitement or both to Real Housewives of Durban?
