The Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD) has wrapped up yet another season of the show and it’s safe to say they’ve served us glamour, drama and some jaw-dropping moments since the first episode aired on 28 January 2022.

The Durban edition of the popular Real Housewives franchise saw three new wives join the show - namely Londie London, Jojo Robinson and Thobile Mseleku - following Kgomotso Ndungane and Ayanda Ncwane’s exit after Season 1. Needless to say, the new additions brought all the excitement and different flavour to the show.

Here are six highlights from Season 2 of RHOD:

1. Annie gets schooled

Following her marriage to Durban businessman Kgolo Mthembu, some of the ladies were shocked at how little Annie knows of her in-laws’ language (isiZulu). To help her settle into her role as a Zulu wife, they suggest she goes for lessons. Annie invites the rest of the non-Zulu-speaking ladies along with her and they learn how to say “amacici edayimani” - diamond earrings in Zulu.

2. Sorisha’s private jet

Londie organises a trip for the ladies to go to Nambiti Hills game lodge and how everyone got there became a bone of contention. Unfortunately, LaConco, Nonku and MaBusi got stuck on their way while the other ladies - Sorisha, Thobile, Jojo and Annie - arrived in a private jet organised by Sorisha’s husband. The ladies who drove to the lodge felt hard done by because they were not offered an invitation to travel by private jet as well.

3. The Mseleku’s bring up polygamy

Thobile and Musa Mseleku bring up the polygamy topic at Thobile’s black-tie dinner party. Not only were the ladies unimpressed because they felt they had waited too long to meet the host of the dinner but they also didn’t take too kindly to the Mselekus' utterances suggesting that Annie should expect her husband, a Zulu man, to take a second wife. Topping it off was Nonku’s comment saying that all men cheat, which put another spanner in the works.

4. Nonku and LaConco disagree on games day

After they’d gotten past the private jet issue, the ladies decided to play a confessions game and things got a bit nasty. The questions being asked were spicy, causing even more tension and leading to Nonku having to rehash the topic of her relationship with the late Sfiso Ncwane. She then makes a comment that suggests the late gospel singer no longer wanted to be married to Ayanda, which prompts LaConco to step in, in defence of Ayanda in her absence.

5. Nonku opens up to the ladies

Another recurring topic on the show was Nonku’s drinking habit - which had been briefly touched on in the first season. Annie, Londie and Jojo had previously held an intervention for her regarding this, but she took offence. However, during the ladies’ trip to Sun City, Nonku eventually opens up about her drinking saying, “I can, maybe, say or confess that at times I would drink to escape. To escape reality, I think because there are times when it just gets too much and I just can’t cope.”

6. Mabusi and Jojo’s altercation

In the last episode of the season, on the last day of the Sun City trip, the host Annie decided to have a party where she asked Londie to perform, which upset Jojo because she (Londie) had previously declined to perform at her event, JoChella. Jojo was visibly upset throughout the night and when the topic of the games day question came up again, Jojo got upset at Mabusi and emptied her glass of water on her, which riled Mabusi up. She retaliated and had to be held back from getting physical with Jojo but warned, “Heyi mina ngi yayi shaya intombazane” (I’ll beat her up).
