The drama behind the scenes of The Real Housewives of Johannesburg is almost as exciting as what is happening onscreen. Reports have emerged that stars Brinnette Seopela and Lethabo Mathatho are at loggerheads.

She was apparently unhappy with a comment that Lethabo made during the episode of RHOJ on November 23.
Sources revealed that Brinnette accused Lethabo of creating incorrect content on the show after Lethabo passed comments about Brinnette’s friend’s finances.
In an interview with Sunday World, Brinnette said she was, ‘extremely shocked and hurt by the fact that people can spend an entire episode gossiping about an individual… and talking absolute nothing but rubbish about someone they don’t even know personally.’
In the RHOJ episodes, the wives have been gossiping about Brinnette and her recent divorce from Themba Gezane. They said she had married for money.
