In Episode 6 of The Real Housewives of Lagos, the producers take a slightly different approach to reveal various facets of the wives’ lives.
This shift might be attributed to the intense drama that had unfolded in previous episodes, as they aim to provide both the cast and the viewers with a more relaxed opening scene this time around.
The episode kicks off with all of them engaging in a casual game. Viewers are treated to heartwarming moments as Iyabo Ojo spends time with her Paulo, Mariam shares a precious baking moment with her daughter Nova, Chioma Ikokwu pursues her goodwill charity activities, Laura promotes her new lipgloss line, and Faith Morey eagerly awaits her son’s arrival. The intent is clear: to infuse the show with warmth and authenticity after all the drama.
In this episode, Tiannah, the ‘King of Fashion,’ seizes the spotlight by showcasing her creative genius. Her unique fashion sense shines through as she designs a dress with a prominent lip motif to attend Laura’s lip gloss launch.
She also pushes the boundaries of fashion creativity with her hair adorned with an array of lip gloss during her confessional interview section. One can’t help but wonder about the sustainability of these extravagant fashion statements and what becomes of these items after they’ve served their purpose.
Mariam’s ongoing struggle with pregnancy underscores the challenges faced by women in society, irrespective of their background or financial status. What sets her apart is her access to alternative methods like IVF to make her dream of pregnancy a reality.
On a lighter note, fashion enthusiasts may raise an eyebrow at Mariam’s choice of attire for Laura’s party, which elicits laughter from some of the other housewives.
It seems like the stylists of some of the housewives have become lax as Faith Morey’s choice of headgear during her confessional interview seems somewhat uncomfortable, obstructing one of her eyes from the viewer’s perspective and she looked like she had to stay put to avoid troubling the gear if she turned. And as for Dr. Rommel’s outfit during his reconciliation meeting with Faith Morey, well, that’s a discussion for another day.
While there may appear to be a temporary lull after the tempestuous Epe resort episode, it’s evident that trouble still simmers beneath the surface. Curiosity abounds regarding Dr. Rommel’s next move, especially after his recent dressing-down by Faith Morey who put him in his place.
Mariam’s continued grievances with Faith Morey to Laura. In fact, it’s increasingly clear that most of these housewives and Doctor Rommel have issues with each other so we can only wait and see how far before the brewing storm bursts forth.
