Since it premiered in April 2022, The Real Housewives of Lagos has been serving all the premium drama and entertainment needed. The second part of the reunion was just as explosive as the previous episode. The drama from the first part was preparing us for what was to come. From the face-off between Toyin and Carolyna to the ended friendship between former besties, Chioma and Carolyna, to Mariam returning Carolyna’s gift, it was a whole lot.
The show started with Uti asking Chioma what she meant when she said there was nothing to compete with, in regards to the competition between herself and Toyin. Chioma responded that she does not watch what other people are doing and she focuses on herself. Toyin then mentions that Chioma likes to make a grand entrance, referencing Laura’s fashion show when Chioma deliberately hung back to touch up her makeup and make a grand entrance. The whole conversation went on with the ladies going off on each other. Toyin accused Chioma of being a mean girl, and Chioma accused Toyin of being jealous and competitive. The argument escalated and almost led to a physical fight, with Toyin lunging at Chioma. She was held back by Iyabo and eventually walks out of the set for two hours.
It was shocking to see that Mariam had an issue with Carolyna as they never had any confrontation on the show. Mariam announced she had a gift for Carolyna, only for her to return the scarf Carolyna had gifted her earlier in the season. She further disclosed that Chioma had told her things Carolyna said about her. According to Mariam, Carolyna had warned Chioma about being careful while at her house as people like them use ‘jazz’. Mariam expressed her hurt at what Chioma had revealed, pointing out that she had never said anything negative about Carolyna.
Chioma and Carolyna were the resident besties on the show till the last episode when we saw them go off at each other. Following Mariam’s revelation, Chioma tells her side of the story and confirms what Mariam said as the truth. That did not go down well with Carolyna who accused Chioma of being a liar and a big gossip. A short clip of their moments as friends on the show was played and Uti asked if there were any hope of mending the friendship. Carolyna said the friendship was over and gone.
The second part of the reunion was a good way to end the first season of the show as we look forward to a more entertaining and explosive second season.
