One close look at most reality shows will have you thinking that perhaps women are more likely to be frenemies than allies. A good example is The Real Housewives series which is one of the most recognizable and well-known reality TV franchises of all time.
People all over the world seem to agree, as evidenced by the 11 American locations and the additional 21 international spinoffs. Why do we find watching these housewives so entertaining, whether it’s in Beverly Hills, Melbourne, Durban, or most recently Dubai?

By showing how the ladies interact with one another on a daily basis and weaving in personal confessionals, the franchise has expertly perfected presenting the explosive characteristics of the housewives. The housewives are videotaped in their homes during these confessionals, where they comment on the episode’s events, reveal their genuine feelings, or simply criticize the other cast members in private.
There has been simmering drama among the women, and it is now beginning to boil over. Things got really tense after Sorisha called Nonku out for talking about Annie behind her back and exposed her.
