FANS RESPOND TO THE SHOW BEING CANCELLED

@Zinhle_88: “Real housewives of Durban is the RHOA of South Africa.”

@Ihhashi_Turkei: “Probably because there aren’t any housewives.”

@Karabo_Mokgoko: “They shot themselves in the foot by not airing it on compact. Not that it would’ve prevented the cancellation, but it would’ve made a difference.”

@Victori98500419: “Thank the Lord it was the worst franchise ever. Can they take Gqeberha with them?”


@gift_bee: “After Christal and Brinnette were dropped they were headed for this place. Hope another production company picks it up and brings back the OGs. It has so much potential with the old cast.”

@lindaluv04: “The third season was really an embarrassment. I feel like they can have a nice comeback if they can cast actual real rich housewives. Not the social climbers at least just one climber not 70% climber. Just my two cents though.”
