Unmarried 2

The first season of Unmarried followed the journey of three Johannesburg women - Brenda, Thembi and Lesego - who found it difficult to strike a balance between their careers, demanding relationships and motherhood.

Despite their different life circumstances, the three all longed for one common goal: to be loved forever.

Last season we were introduced to Lesego (Keke Mphuti), a slay queen with a taste for the finer things in life; Brenda (Renate Stuurman), a career-driven banker; and Thembi (Thembisa Mdoda), a devoted girlfriend.

An event in Season 2 is about to change everything in their journey and redefine what it means to have it all.

After a failed 10-year marriage last season, we will meet a reinvented Brenda who finds herself juggling between a new flame and her business taking on an unplanned responsibility.

Thembi, who has to pick up the pieces after 15 wasted years, comes across an encounter that forces her to make a very deep self-introspection as her future comes head-on with events from the past.

Lunathi Mampofu joins the cast this season as Claudia Dunn, a retired supermodel who returns to South Africa after cutting ties with everyone.

Also new this season is Sisa Hewana in the role of Ernest Modise, a relationship guru who worms his way into everyone's lives.

Emkay Khanyile joins the cast as Cam, a social media influencer; and Don Mosenye completes the new additions in the role of multi-billionaire business mogul, Benson Mabunda.

Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition 14

Five new hip hop couples are taking a step back from the game on an all-new season of Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition.

They've got the awards, the view counts, the platinum records and the love of millions of fans, but they can't seem to secure a relationship with the person who matters most.

Non-stop baby mama drama, jealousy-fueled DM hacking, shouting matches that could rival canon fire, broken hearts, crushed dreams, infidelity and headline worthy insults are waiting at the door of Marriage Boot Camp.

Though the couples are arriving because of many different reasons, everyone wants the same question answered: Is this relationship the one?

Or is it time to say 'bye Felicia'?

CeeLo Green and fiancée Shani have been together for eight years and engaged for three of them, but they must decide if they want to walk down the aisle or walk away.

The age difference between Michel'le Toussaint and her boyfriend Stew is at the root of their issues, but they also must face their notorious pasts and pull their problems out from under the rug.

The clock is ticking for "The Puerto Rican Princess" Joseline Hernandez, who has put a deadline on her relationship with boyfriend Balistic Beats.

He has ghosted her in the past and now he has eight months to put a ring on it.

Styles P and Adjua Styles are looking to put the spark back in their love life as their 24-years relationship has been put to the test with the death of their daughter, infidelity and anger issues.

For Bianca Bonnie and Chozus, boot camp is the last resort to mend their toxic and immature relationship that is fueled by obsessive behavior, secrets and social media hacking.

Dr. Ish's unique sensibilities are going to be doled in a no B.S. tough love fashion in order to pull these celebrities out of the clouds and put them back in to reality.

Added to the mix is Judge Toler who brings her style to the drills aimed to test and answer, which couple makes beautiful music together and who should go solo.
