Why Did It Take So Long For Nelson Mandela’s Granddaughters To Get Their Own Reality Show?

Thursday, September 29 by
This show looks so f*cking fabulous I just threw my desk chair across the room.  

Sure, Nelson Mandela endured decades of incarceration to end apartheid, but is that enough to guarantee his progeny their own reality television show? The answer is….YES!

The former South African leader and revered global icon’s granddaughters, Dorothy Adjoa Amuah, Zaziwe Dlamini-Manaway, and Swati Dlamini (all of them!), were born in Africa, though raised in the United States. The show will follow their lives in South Africa as grown women. The eldest will be the mother figure, the middle daughter will be starting a clothing line (OMG!), and the youngest will her pursue her career with an MBA and a law degree (BORING!)

“We’re definitely not the African Kardashians,” Amuah said when asked about the show. Given this information, I’m sure the search is on for the REAL African Kardashians.

The series will be produced and created by Rick Leed, who worked on Home Improvement and Dr. 90210, so expect a cameo from Richard Karn, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, and lots of fabulous plastic surgery.

The Mandela Family: It’s Complicated will air early next year.
