Meet The Real Housewives of Cape Town Cast

The Real Housewives of Cape Town (RHOCT) is a South African docu-reality television series that premiered on Mzansi Magic on July 10, 2022. The show primarily focuses on the affluent personal and professional lives of moneyed women residing in Mother City.

RHOCT is preceded by the Real Housewives of Joburg and the Real Housewives of Durban. Distributed internationally by NBC Universal Formats and produced locally by Trace Studios, the show stopped running on the Mzansi Magic channel on October 9, 2022. RHOCT pulled in moderately favorable reviews and also kept viewers hooked to the screens while it lasted.

Who are The Real Housewives of Cape Town Cast?

The cast members of the Real Housewives of Cape Town consist of 7 prominent women residing in Cape Town. Their names are Beverley Steyn, Camilla McDowell, Kutazwa ‘Rooksy’ Gqirana, Loveline Abinokhauno, aka Mrs. Leo, Lulwando ‘Lue’ Tukwayo, Rushda Moosajee, and Thanto Montse.

The RHOCT cast is an ensemble of well-heeled women who place great importance on social status, wealth, and material goods. In other words, the show follows Cape Town’s wealthiest socialites from diverse social backgrounds as they relate with one another and deal with their obsession with getting to the top of the city’s social ladder.

Besides that, the show offers them a platform to deal with their personal and family problems. Things like foul or inappropriate words (the strongest are bleeped), flaunting of bling, opulent lifestyle, exposure of cleavages, and catty behavior are commonly seen on the show.
