The Real Housewives of Nairobi(RHONairobi) has added a new cast member, Dr. Catherine Masitsa, a veterinary doctor, real estate investor, and publisher.
Masitsa, who is also the founder and managing director of Samantha’s Bridal, will join the reality TV show on Thursday, March 23, when its fifth episode airs on Showmax.
The businesswoman said she is excited to be joining the show as the sixth housewife.
“I’m very excited to be part of this show because I’m not very big on social media, and I think that through The Real Housewives of Nairobi, my fans will get to see the real me living my fabulous life,” she said.
Dr Masitsa described herself as formidable, saying she does not know how to pretend.
“I like to see myself as real; I don’t know how to pretend. I’m formidable. I’m a wall; you can’t get through to me. And I’m a thoroughbred. I put on my blinders and don’t get distracted with whatever else is going on. I’m just climbing one mountain – mine – which is the one with the money at the top,” she said.
Dr Catherine, who recently launched a wine brand, Samantha Wines, said her family is supportive.
She is married to a neurologist, Dr Andras Rosza, and together they have one daughter.
“I live for my family, and I work for my family. I like to say that my daughter is my employer because I work for her. My husband is very supportive about me being on the show, and if I ask for anything, he’ll say, “Let’s do it, honey.” And my daughter is a star, and she’s very happy to appear on the show. The camera loves her and she loves it.” she said.
Masitsa joins Sonal Maherali, Minne Kariuki, Susan Kaittany, Vera Sidika, and Lisa Christoffersen. She described her co-stars as real.
“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,” said the businesswoman.
