Reeva Steenkamp stars in a reality show premiering in South Africa.
Steenkamp’s family said earlier Saturday that they had not been contacted by either the SABC – South Africa’s national broadcaster – or the show’s producers for permission to air it, but were not opposed to it because Reeva wanted everyone to see it.
“Her last words to us personally was that she wants us to watch it,” Sharon Steenkamp said, hours before the program was shown.
SABC aired the reality show on its main channel, which prominently featured Steenkamp.
The show’s executive producer, Samantha Moon, said going ahead with the show “is what she would have wanted.”
