Mariam Timmer On RHOLagos (Real Housewives Of Lagos)
Showmax’s Real Housewives Of Lagos aired on April 8, 2022, and it saw a cast of six including Mariam Timmer ready to show the world how Lagos women have redefined the word “housewife” like the queens that they truly are.
Ever since a child, Mariam loved watching reality shows. No wonder, within 24 hrs of being invited to RHOLagos, she’d sealed the deal with the production. However, as much as she was excited to be one of the “real housewives,” Mariam was concerned about how the other cast members would feel about this because they didn’t know she was coming. And when she was finally introduced, Mariam got the reactions exactly what she was expecting.
“I was like, ‘Yes, b*tches. Close your mouth, close it.’ But that was precisely the expression I was waiting for, and I got it. They might have said something behind my back,” she explained.
Another reason Mariam wasn’t hesitant about being on RHOLagos was the previous experiences that included her facing the camera. “I’ve always been in front of a camera, thanks to my life in PR,” she explained. But once she decided to start a family with her husband, she had to take herself out of the scene.
Before RHOLagos, Mariam hadn’t faced the camera since 2017.
For Mariam, being a “real housewife” meant either you’re married, in a relationship, or a single mother. Or, you’ve been married before or have that stability. She believed that a “real housewife” should also be a business-minded person, a people’s person, knowing how to talk to people and approach them nicely.
Overall, the quality she possesses.
The star defined her style to be “very sexy.” She liked to keep herself “chic, and classy” or like some people say “extra.”
