The Real Housewives Coming To Lagos

According to inside sources, NBCUniversal owners of the popular America docu-reality series; the Real Housewives Franchise is partnering with a Nigerian organisation to produce a version of the show for the African audience.  The new show will be called the Real Housewives of Lagos and will cover the lifestyle of 5 – 8  different women resident in Lagos. Continue...

 
These women must fit a certain profile; aged between 30 and 50, extremely wealthy - married into money, inherited a fortune through her family, or just self-made millionaires - they could be married, divorced or single.  They will also grant an all-access pass to their lives: their families, friendships, careers and homes.

While there are so many women in Lagos who fit this bill, it would be interesting to see the ones who get selected to star in this show and the ones who accept.

if that is the criteria that qualifies one as a housewife,why then is the term loathed and housewives,whether ric or poor looked down upon,in Africa that is? i always thot a housewife in Africa is one who stays at home to manage home and family affairs and is on her husband´s payroll,guess am wrong.

Sounds like trouble. With all d kidnapping and robbery going on in lagos, don't think I'll advice any woman to open her life and wealth in nigeria to the world. Besides we r in a conservative environment. Spend your money and worship your God privately. JMO

Nigerians didn't see Brigde,good roads, good housing system,no job creation initiatives in area of production to copy from Americans.Only on this area of ego self promoting acting of an idiot of a thing.Really i hate this movie- nolywood area of job creation that is a disease in Nigeria now .Government and private investors should invest in structural and agricultural development and stop pursuing this wind of an acting project.This is just vain glories

Nope, only the negative aspects of American culture like violence, heightened sexuality, divorce and what have you. I wonder why we cant copy tenants such as liberty, security, altruism, innovation etc. Afterall, these are part of American culture as well!

I just can't believe that Nigerians won't be themselves. Why can't we initiate our own shows than doing things that normally don't belong to us. That's why a lot of us live a fake life.

And what good is this show going to do in our morally decaying society, where the rich are worshiped regardless of the source of their wealth?

Anonymous said...

No one worth watching in Lagos will actually sign up for this ...after all all the really rich people in Lagos can't bear the scrutiny of their wealth...except the "celebs" and we already see enough about them already

I predict the how will never air

Oh wow another stupid reality show depicting the wives of thieves and looters. Plus women who do nothing with their time, but cheat on their husbands by being so called "sugar mommies". Why not a reality show on the sufferings of regular nigerians. Black folks are so moronic, thinking that they are white.

Let them go away with their so called series. Must everything western infiltrate our societies? This is how one thing opens ways for more evil. We must not emulate all things brought from the west for us to digest.

@Kendra and the other anonymous..your actually the ones that are dumb....dont you realise that it is obviously a Nigerian that went and pitched the idea to NBC in order to buy the franchise?....you think NBC has time to do this show in Africa?...even if they wanted to do it they would start with South Africa first!...how do you think xfactor and idol came to Nigeria?.....it was a Nigerian that went to meet the companies to buy the idea ...so yes we are copy copy!....

So are they going to lecture the producers and directors of lekki housewives?

Anonymous said...

Lol Jokers. The Real, classy thoroughbred women with the REAL wealth won't involve themselves in such. So they'll prob end up casting bush wannabes commonly found on the red carpet of many mediocre concerts/shows in Lagos.

NBC na American network o. They are the ones bringing the show to naija,not the other way round. Plus these American replicate shows are done else where in the world because they are hot and sellable franchises. I for one do not support this new show as it will open the cast to security suicide

This is exactly my thoughts. Nigerians please be smart oooo. You will basically be asking for more trouble by being on this show. Nigeria and America are not similar in anyway- they don't have the kind of insecurities we have in Naija and don't forget the jealous friends, neighbors and inlaws, Nigerians are spiritual(evil, good, intermediate you name it) people. A word is enough for the wise
