Dr. Catherine Masitsa has been revealed as the sixth housewife joining The Real Housewives of Nairobi.
Also known as The Queen Mother, she will be making her official on an episode that also sees Minne attempt to bring the ladies into her world.
Masitsa is a veterinary doctor, real estate investor, and publisher. She is the founder and managing director of Samantha’s Bridal.
Recently, Dr. Catherine also launched a wine brand and is just about to launch her champagne brand.
She is married to a neurologist, Dr. Andras Rosza, and together they have one daughter.
She said she was very excited to be part of the show because "I’m not very big on social media, and I think my fans will get to see the real me living my fabulous life."
On joining the show late, she said "It’s been an eye-opener interacting with them, from creating real friendships to friendships being tested. I had my assumptions about them but the more I interact with them in such close, intimate spaces, the more I really get to know them – their frailties, fears, triumphs, and personalities, and not what we read about. You get to see that they’re solid people. Everybody is so real and living their lives."
So, what differentiates The Real Housewives of Nairobi from other African franchises?
"It really captures the essence of Nairobi. Nairobi is a very cosmopolitan city, in the sense that even if you’ve never physically left this city, you will feel like you have left the city and traveled the world. If you have money in this city, then you don’t really need to go anywhere because there’s everything here. This is why people come to Nairobi and they never leave. "
