Channel: 1Magic (DStv 103)

The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City

The series delves into the undiscovered world of Salt Lake City within an exclusive social circle made up of six successful women who've created their own paradise filled with luxury homes, shopping sprees and multi-million-dollar businesses.

The series follows the elite and unconventional lives of Lisa Barlow, Mary Cosby, Heather Gay, Meredith Marks, Whitney Rose and Jen Shah, as they navigate a society fueled by religion, beauty, wealth and perfection.

The Mormon church is undeniably engrained in the culture of Salt Lake City, but these women represent a spectrum of religious beliefs ranging from Mormon, Islamic, Jewish and Pentecostal.

Here perfection is not an aspiration, it's a mandate.

With a deep-rooted history, these women share a special bond, but when circles are this tight it's only a matter of time before beliefs and personalities collide.

Whether hitting the slopes, attending parties at Sundance or hosting the city's elite, these housewives hold themselves and each other to an extremely high standard and never hold back when things go sideways, but lord knows they are always there for each other when they need it most.

In the series premiere, "Welcome to Salt Lake City!": Salt Lake City is more than just mountains and religion.

When Jen throws a Tongan-themed birthday party for her close friend Meredith, it's anything but a celebration when she confronts Mary about insensitive comments made about her family.

Heather discovers that her longtime friend from college, Lisa, has been spreading rumours about her.

And after years of judgement and scrutiny, Whitney finally has her dream wedding with her dream guy.

Undercover Billionaire 2

Channel: Discovery Channel (DStv 121)
TX Time: 20h55
Genre: Reality

Undercover Billionaire 2

In the first season of Undercover Billionaire, self-made businessman Glenn Stearns bet big that the American Dream was still alive and well.

We watched as Glenn was stripped of his name, wealth and contacts and dropped into a city he's never been to see if he could build a million-dollar company in 90 days with only $100 in his pocket.

Inspired by Glenn's audacious bet, three new entrepreneurs have stepped forward to embark on the same bold challenge.

This season, three successful entrepreneurs are betting $1-million that they can go undercover in three different cities, start their own business with just $100 and top the million-dollar mark in just 90 days.

At the end of the challenge, each of them will reveal their true identities to the people who helped build their business.

But will they be able to turn their big ideas into a reality? And can they navigate the impact of COVID-19 that has forced so many businesses across the country to shutter?

Each person will need to rely on their own unique secrets of success. Everyone has their own game plans, secret business hacks and strategies. After all, there's more than one way to make $1-million dollars.

The entrepreneurs going undercover this year are:

Grant Cardone, an unapologetic entrepreneur and international motivational speaker, real estate investor, sales trainer and author of best-selling publications, including The 10XRule and Be Obsessed or Be Average.

The traditional concept of the American Dream - work hard, save money and own a home - is wrong, according to Grant.

He maintains that people have everything you need, and cash is trash when it sits idle. You need to put your money and your contacts to work.

There's nothing Grant won't do for an opportunity to succeed, and he believes that relentless attitude should be adopted by everyone.

Monique Idlett-Mosley, the founder and CEO of Reign Ventures, a technology fund that empowers young entrepreneurs to create their own multimillion-dollar businesses.

Monique has generated hundreds of millions for the startup companies she's collaborated with.

After a childhood of adversity, Monique proved herself as a young executive on the rise at USA Today.

She made her first fortune by creating an agency that partnered corporations with entertainment and sports stars.

Monique went on to become the brains behind the Mosley Music Group, in partnership with her now ex-husband Tim "Timbaland" Mosley, where she was responsible for managing the successful careers of such high-profile artists as One Republic, Nelly Furtado and Chris Cornell.

Elaine Culotti, a real estate developer, interior designer, builder, founder of House of Rock and visionary.

A serial entrepreneur since the age of 14, Elaine broke into the male-dominated construction business and bulldozed her way into becoming one of the industry's biggest players.

Elaine doesn't let anyone or anything stop her from achieving her goals. She has developed and built everything from luxury homes to casinos and hospitals.

Elaine moves forward with intense determination, no visible fear of failure, and an uncanny ability to get her way.
