"It’s all about being who you are, and also being outspoken and standing up for yourself," she said.

Reflecting on her evolution from Season 1 to now, Minne acknowledged significant growth both personally and professionally.

She admitted that while she loves the drama and shade that comes with the show, it can sometimes become mentally exhausting. This season, however, she aimed for more peace due to her pregnancy.

"Watching Season 2, you also get to see a lot of growth in my family and in my business," she noted.

Minne's pregnancy brought a new dimension to her on-screen presence. Throughout the season, viewers witness her battling nausea, vomiting, and constant hunger, particularly during her second trimester.

Despite the difficulties, she carried on with remarkable strength and remained supportive of her friends.

"I was still there for my friends when they needed me; I showed up," she said.

Support from her husband Charles and their children played a crucial role during this challenging time.

Minne's bond with her husband showcased on the show, remains a fan favourite. She describes him as her gossip partner, best friend, pillar of strength, and prayer partner.

Their relationship is portrayed with authenticity, showing both the ups and downs of their marriage.

"We go through our ups and downs, and it wouldn’t be fair to show the audience that we’re always a perfect couple. I live a very real life," she asserted.

Minne's friendship with co-star Vera Sidika also takes centre stage this season. The dynamic between them has shifted, with Vera stepping into a more outspoken and dramatic role, while Minne, dealing with pregnancy, finds herself more subdued.

Their genuine friendship continues to thrive despite the changes, showcasing Vera’s emergence from her shell.
