New reality TV series Divas of Jozi airs this July on SABC3


Divas of Jozi is filled with plenty of drama, tears and giggles as six sassy, larger than life women navigate the ups and downs of the glitz and glam in SABC3’s latest offering which will premiere at 20h00 from 4 July 2016.

The one hour uncensored reality TV show launching on Monday will take viewers into the lives of women who are living the life that many dream of. They have the money, the style and they get to attend parties that only the elite are seen at.

The show is filmed around the country. Taking the viewer anywhere the women go for a bit of fun. In the first episode, viewers will meet ‘the divas’.

The Divas of Jozi relate to almost every woman out there, the entrepreneurs, the single moms juggling a career and parenthood to the lucky women living the cushy life of having bagged a filthy rich husband and all the perks that come with it. Viewers will see it all raw and uncensored.

The divas:

• Sorisha Naidoo needs no formal introduction to South Africans. We first met this talented media personality when she had a role in Scandal. A role she played for three years. She later moved to Home Affairs the drama series and also did a presenting stint on Eastern Mosaic. She is currently married to Durban based billionaire Vivian Reddy and she is also a proud mother of two, not forgetting her many business interests and philanthropic work. The former Miss India South Africa runs a very popular aesthetic clinic nestled in the heart of Durban.

• Currently in her second marriage is Puleng Mash-Spies. She has two children from her previous marriage. She says she married young and divorced early. But as luck would have it.
