Following the season 3 finale of The Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD) on Showmax last week, viewers were already choosing their favourite media personalities who would be perfect for the reunion hosting gig as there was lots to unpack.

During the finale, the ladies drew a line in the sand regarding their friendships.

On the one side, Nonku and Jojo have made it clear that they are okay with moving on with their friendship without the other ladies. On the other side, Annie, Slee, Sorisha, Maria and sometimes Sane have formed a friendship that is separate from the two ladies. Mbali has tried to stay on the fence, avoiding taking a stance on the “team” she’s in.

In the final scene of Season 3, apologies were made but the “last supper” confrontation between Nonku and Slee is what sparked the most conversations online.

With so many unanswered questions, and some of the ladies yet to account for their actions, Showmax will be airing the reunion in two parts on 3 May 2023 and 10 May 2023.

“I jumped at this opportunity as a Durbanite,” says the media personality and conversation curator, born Mthokozisi Cele. “The reunion of The Real Housewives has never been hosted by someone from Durban before, someone who understands the landscape and social dynamics of us as Durbanites.”

MaBlerh assured fans that he will not take his new job lightly.

“It’s been a hard-hitting season, so it would be remiss of me and a disservice to the fans of the show to go in there and not ask hard-hitting questions. Nothing is off limits and everything that was on the show will be put on the table. Viewers should expect a host who will fully represent them. A host who’s a fan of the show. A host who will try his best to get the clarity we all need on everything that has happened during this season.”

MaBlerh is no stranger to the spotlight. He’s the smooth voice behind Kaya 959’s popular show The Weekend Update with MaBlerh. He’s also a TV fave, having been a panellist on Mzansi Magic’s Black Conversations, the co-host of the SABC3 talk show Trending SA, and in the cast of Isibaya as Justice Mnguni. The former publicist and blogger has a Bachelor of Economics from Rhodes University.


RHOD viewers have welcomed the producers’ choice, as many who know and love MaBlerh celebrated the announcement.
