Diamond and Dolls announce season two of their reality show.

They are filthy rich and they want everyone to know it. 

While South Africans might have loved to hate season one, they couldn't look away from the drama. 

The initial season was about showing off expensive outfits, pricey Peruvian weaves, and high heels and that certain people can make up to R200 000 a month from parties and club hosting. 

Shot five years ago, the first season of Dimond and Dolls reality show starred Eva Modika, ‘The North Queen’ club hostess and businesswoman, and makeup brand owner, Inno Morolong, who is also known by many as the ‘Turn up Girl’.

They were joined by Lumi Jemma, a self-described world traveller, and Lolo Mlunjwana, a boutique owner, also join the cast, and together they are daring, beautiful, dramatic, and driven to live a life of pure luxury.

In an interview with Drum, executive producer, co-founder and the diamond among the dolls Tebogo Ramokgadi says the content is raw, unscripted, and is all about opulence, and hard work.

“The girls will take us through some of the plastic surgery procedures and how image is important for them. This is not to encourage anyone to go for surgery, but to teach people that there are many ways of making money.”

For the second season, Tebogo promises more drama. After letting go of two dolls, Lolo Mlunjwana and Lumi Jemma, and replacing them with Los Angeles star Noel Arteece and Katlego Dlomo, Tebogo says it adds a spark of elegance to the show.

“They are elegant queens. Lolo came with drama. We love her but the offscreen drama was too messy. Lumi was hardly available and traveled a lot. We might feature both of them as guests, but we wanted girl diversity. We will be adding a Nigerian lady and someone from Tanzania with time. But we want to take it easy,” he adds.

“Season was an introduction of who we are and this time around, we want to show true luxury.”

The first season received a lot of backlash on social media. But Tebogo is adamant that the second season will be classier.

“We are all about being real. Our lifestyles are all about wealth, and class and we will show that in the next season,” he adds.
