Real Housewives’ Nonku Williams and her ‘gangster boyfriend’ broken up

All traces of her former fiancé have also been deleted from her Instagram account.


Real Housewives of Durban reality star and businesswoman, Nonku Williams confirmed on Friday that her relationship with Dumisani Ndlazi, popularly referred to as ‘Rough Diamond’, has unfortunately come to an end.

Fans of the reality television show expressed their shock in March when a secret video of Nonku getting engaged to Ndlazi surfaced on social media.

Viewers of the popular reality television show were sceptic about Nonku’s relationship with Dumisani from the moment he joined the show in the third season, and many felt that Nonku was hiding something about their relationship.

It seems that fans of the show had valid reasons for questioning the seemingly inorganic relationship as Nonku confirmed to Drum that they “have unfortunately broken up”.

While the 43-year-old didn’t provide a reason for the break-up she did say that she couldn’t comment on allegations that Ndlazi scammed her out of money from a tender they got into together, as it is a legal case.

Nonku Williams and JoJo Robinso no longer enjoying being part of RHODurban

Nonku also opened up about being part of season three of The Real Housewives of Durban during her Drum interview and said that she isn’t enjoying it like she did the first two seasons.

The CEO of Beauty To Ashes winery said she is continuously being painted as something that she is not and that there is a lot that has been taken out of context.

She also added that she feels extremely misunderstood.

Nonku’s bestie, JoJo Robinson, who joined the reality television show in season two is also fed-up with her fellow cast members behaviour.

The wife of former South African kickboxer Calven Robinson opened up about the toxicity of the show in lengthy Instagram stories post on Thursday in which she said she will never do Real Housewives of Durban again.

In the post that has since expired, JoJo revealed that she was bullied in school and feels that it is happening again.

“I was bullied in school and here I am watching similar things happening again on national TV for the whole country to see. In school I had people telling the one friend I had not to be friends with me. And it worked. At one point I remember I would eat lunch in the bathroom so no one would see that I had no friends,” she wrote.

She also apologised to young girls for the “toxic behaviour” on the show, saying that as a group they had a massive platform to inspire young girls, but instead they have shown nothing but how to hate and fight.
