Lebo Jojo Mokoena
In Season 2, Lebo's business ventures were tied to her ex-husband. Following her divorce, Lebo is setting out on her own. She is the host of a podcast and radio show, and she is in the process of self-discovery.
Lethabo 'LeJoy' Mathatho
The TV and radio personality is no stranger to the RHOJ franchise too. She returns from Season 2 with the hopes of changing the narrative and reintroducing herself. This time around, Lethabo wants to use her platform to support and uplift young men while building her empire. With a thriving career and having achieved huge success over the years, is Lethabo ready for the next big step in her life?
She is a mother of three and she takes viewers into her interesting yet complicated family. Kea sets out to find her passions and financial freedom after her divorce. One of her goals is to encourage women to love themselves first and to realise that it's never too late to find happiness and their desires.
She is an ambitious entrepreneur, serial investor, and traditional healer. Thobekile is also an advocate for a healthy lifestyle and she has been an avid worker from a young age. Her husband helped her fine-tune her career and set her ambitious spirit alight by providing her with the business tools and tricks she needed.
The entrepreneur and newly-divorced Nicole has the right mix for a reality television personality. She has taken on the challenge of creating successful businesses while dealing with challenges in her personal life. Miss know-it-all does not shy away from a "teachable" moment with her castmates and she has a plethora of international connections and celebrity friends. While she is dedicated to her son, Nicole makes time for the her youth development programme, Nicci Lee Watson Foundation.
Although her life is filled with twists and turns, Mamus is a force to be reckoned with. By day she works as an HR administrator for an non-profit organisation by night, on occasion, she shares content on her YouTube channel where she talks about a variety of topics while also hosting a podcast with her husband called, Couple of Things.
