New cast members joining The Real Housewives of Nairobi (RHON) have been revealed, after much anticipation.

In a press statement, Showmax streaming service has announced that original cast members Vera Sidika, Minne Kariuki and Doctor Catherine Masitsa will be joined by three more intriguing ladies, some of whom are already known in the public eye.

“They are joined by new cast members that include lawyer and professional bodybuilder Farah Esmail, beauty entrepreneur Zena Nyambu and Reja Keji Ladu,” the statement reads in part.

Executive producer Eugene Mbugua said: “We’re very excited for the return of The Real Housewives of Nairobi in May. Over the years, D&R Studios has cut a niche in quality production of unscripted shows in Kenya, and to be able to pull off a global format of this magnitude and have it renewed is something we’re very proud of as a company.”

He added: “In this new season, we’ll see a return of some familiar faces and a few new additions. We’re very keen to bring out the opulence that Nairobi and Kenya has to offer while maintaining the excitement and intrigue that makes The Real Housewives what it is.”

In season one, fans were let in on the glamorous lives of the ladies, from their homes to their families and personal moments.

Now, they get to continue some of those storylines, while being introduced to the new cast members and what they are all about.

“Season 1 had all of Kenya talking. It brought glamour, sass, luxury parties, allegiances and a lot of self-discovery. Get ready for more excitement, spice and glam as The Real Housewives of Nairobi returns for the much-anticipated second season on 10 May.”

The statements adds: The popular reality series is the biggest Showmax Original yet in Kenya, having broken streaming records when Season 1 launched in February 2023, and making it to the top 10 most-watched shows on Showmax in Kenya in 2023. Recently, The Real Housewives of Nairobi also won Best TV Show at the Kalasha Awards 2024.
