The Real Housewives Of Durban might be a hit show but for Sorisha Naidoo, her family was a little skeptical seeing how she has built her brand. Thanks to the entertaining drama these ladies bring every week, her family then eased up to idea and welcomed the cameras in their homes with open arms.

Sorisha is a former radio presenter, DJ, actress and a businesswoman who runs a successful umbrella company SSBO. She talked about the nitty gritty which involves being a cast member of the Durban based reality show. She addresses some of the misconceptions which include polygamy.

Why did you decide to become a RHOD?

I love the franchise and I love the cast members when I initially met them, the production team was a huge plus too, they had an amazing vision for the show.

How did the experience differ from your expectations?

Apart from the drama that I have acclimatised myself to, everything else was exactly as promised, professional to the core.

What was a highlight for you?

There have been so many unique experiences with the ladies, if I had to highlight one it would be the finale trip we all took, it was great to have us altogether.

What did your friends and family think?

Some of my friends and family think it was not the show for me and others were super excited.

Have you always been recognized and has it gotten better or worse since RHOD?

I have always been recognised due to the acting on past soapies however because the RHOD has gotten so much traction it has made me more recognisable even with a mask on.

What's the most ridiculous rumour you ever heard about yourself?

It would definitely be LaConco’s rumour which was if I was ever in a polygamous relationship…lol.

Why did you decide to join the cast?

I joined the cast because they are strong and exciting young women.

Did it take you a while to get used to the cameras while filming?

It was like riding a bicycle, you never forget.

How did your family find the experience?

They love the show and they love the different scenarios that are created spontaneously around us.

There's a stereotype about Real Housewives, did you find that to be true while filming? 

I love the way this particular show steered away from the stereotypical ways of previous shows and made it palatable. 

What can viewers expect from you?

I speak my mind when I have to, I have been me from beginning to end and people who truly know me will vouch for that.

Do you have a favourite moment from filming you can share with us?

It would be the title sequence when we all had the most fun together, we shared stories and we were a team, before the drama started to unfold.

Will we see you back again?

I would say yes but it’s not up to me.

Sorisha Naidoo and the ladies keep the social media feeds lively every week. You can catch them every Friday on Showmax!
