TV personality Phat Joe hosted the reunion in season one of the Durban reality show while actor and television host, Moshe Ndiki, oversaw the reunion of the Johannesburg franchise.

Now the Comics Choice nominee will sit down with the Durban housewives to discuss the most popular – and not so popular moments – on the show in the reunion, which is set to air in early May.

The news of Goliath hosting, despite his impressive CV, seems to have rubbed fans the wrong way.

On Twitter fans are asking if Goliath is a fan of the show or whether Showmax purposely wants to see fans angered as they always choose the “wrong” host.

@athi_james tweeted: “Hayi Kodwa @ShowmaxOnline yoll keep slipping up you don't seem to be in tune with the viewers, Joe was bad at it last year this is also going to be another disaster of a reunion, can you get someone that is really invested in the show.”

Meanwhile, Goliath said: “I’ve always been intrigued by this concept and this show. I’m excited to host the reunion because I really wanted to meet the wives and get to know more about this world from them.”

Series executive producer Sam Kelly said: “Donovan is the perfect host because he came with the right amount of humour, the right amount of compassion, and the right amount of love for all of the ladies and the storylines on The Real Housewives of Durban.

“Some divides are going to be cemented and some bridges are going to be built, so it’s a great reunion.”

The ladies – Thobile Khumalo Mseleku, Sorisha Naidoo, Londie London, LaConco, Nonku Williams, Jojo Robinson and Annie Mthembu – kept viewers fully entertained with their sassiness, glamour and drama in every episode this season.
