The Real Housewives van Pretoria is not on Showmax like some of the other South African Real Housewives shows. So, where can you watch the reality series?

The Real Housewives van Pretoria (RHOPTA) is the first Afrikaans version of the international reality series. The series airs on KykNet, channel 144 every Thursday at 20:00.

“It is a privilege to bring the famous international Real Housewives franchise to kykNET. The fact that this series is set in Pretoria rather than Lagos or Cape Town was always going to require us to approach it differently than the other Real Housewives shows produced around the world,” said Waldimar Pelser, director of the kykNET channels in a statement.

“We want to showcase a group of strong Afrikaans women from Pretoria who play big roles in their families and communities, and of course also bring the pizzazz that Real Housewives is known for. These women live large and know the beautiful things in life. This is a rare chance to get to know them intimately, and walk in their shoes,” continued Pelser.

The highlight of the latest episode of RHOPTA was Mel Viljoen’s comment on Kiki La Coco’s charity. Kiki and her husband Malcolm sat down with Mel Viljoen and her friend at the charity event. The couple then ask Mel how much she will be donating.

“I’m so stupid that it never crossed my mind that they’d actually ask me for money. And.. I was ready for the moment though,” said Mel.

The Tammy Taylor Nails SA founder then went on to ask how much people usually give. Kiki then responded from R20 to R100 000. 

“Judging by the way you look in your expensive outfit you can’t give less than R50 000,” said Malcolm. 

“Not once could they tell me what it is, what it looks like, what they envision. They couldn’t account for one cent and how it’s going to work. I just hope the charity, paid partnerships and the like.. Don’t become a trend in the relationship,” said Mel. 

“Make me feel it’s only about the money and the friendship will be over instantly,” she continued.
