Viewers of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip – South Africa star are disgusted by cast member Nonku Williams’ claims about her fellow cast member Mel Viljoen ‘s husband, Peet.


During the third episode of the season of the Showmax reality series, Mel’s cast members Nonku Williams and Lethabo “LeJoy” Mathatho alleged that Peet was an abusive husband.


Nonku, who is also a The Real Housewives of Durban star, further accused the Tammy Taylor Nails South Africa boss of being controlling and denying Mel the opportunity to be a mother, as the couple does not have children together while Peet has three.

Speaking to her RHOD bestie, Jojo Robinson, Nonku said about Mel: “She idolise her husband. She thinks he’s the best think since planet Earth. I think she’s being abused.”

She continued: “And I can bet you, Peet doesn’t want to have kids… Peet runs Mel’s life.”

LeJoy also claimed that Mel is in a cult if she believes she can’t live without Peet, also adding that it sounds as though she is being abused.

However, this is not the first time that Nonku has had an opinion about the Viljoens – who are accused of fraud and illegally selling franchises and products by Tammy Taylor (the CEO of the American nail brand).

“Scandals aside, Nonku is threatened by Mel and whether she idolises her husband or not , ayifuni yena. How do you have such horrible opinions about someone you don’t even know like that?” said one viewer on X.

“She said Mel pretends as if her husband is the best thing to happen to her since planet earth on her call with JojoWhereas Jojo behaves like that as well with Calvin. So what is Nonku implying? She’s jealous fr [for real] Haibo,” said another netizen.

“The comments about Mel’s marriage were unnecessary and uncalled for. Nonku needs to heal,” wrote another viewer.


In a statement sent to The South African, Peet denounced any allegations of abuse.

“As a divorce lawyer I defended women against abusive men for 17 years. I have reapplied to practice law after a court found that I have been wrongfully prosecuted for nearly 15 years. I have five sisters who would have slapped the silly out of me if I had abusive tendencies towards women.

“The only abuse Mel suffers by my hand is probably the weight of the diamonds I keep gifting her,” Peet said.

Addressing claims he doesn’t want to have children with his wife, he said they both decided it would be best not to have any because Mel doesn’t have family.

In the same statement, Mel also claimed she was “baby shamed” by Nonku and LeJoy.

“My husband Peet is the pillar of my world. My emotional home. Nothing is too much of an ask when my happiness is at stake… The accusation of abuse is dangerous and career ending. Abuse is a disease of our time, and should not be loosely thrown around, without consequences.”

She further told her RHUGT cast members to “mind only the business that pays them.”
