Naidoo flew her friends, business associates and media to the upmarket Umhlanga this weekend to celebrate her 40th birthday at the ultra posh Beverly Hills.

Naidoo made her grand entrance dressed in a nude-coloured gold encrusted number designed by Haroun Hansrot.

This was the second leg of her celebration after she partied with close friends and family in Mauritius earlier this month.

"Mauritius was amazing. We had a party on the yatch, spa treatments and we got to celebrate in style," Naidoo shared.

Inside the hotel, guests were entertained by violinists, love bands, plenty of sushi and expensive champagnes at different food stations featuring Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine.

Naidoo said she  was excited about all the gifts from her wealthy husband including a limited edition Louis Vuitton hand bag from her children.

"I love my LV bag from my kids, it's the first in SA and I hope I don't come across as someone who has it," chuckled the former Scandal! actress.

Among Naidoo's guests were media mogul Basetsana Kumalo, Norma Gigaba, wife of finance minister Malusi, television star 's wife Norma Gigaba and television star Zanele Mbokazi.

Late night arrivals included premier of Free State Ace Magashule and  political heavyweight Jeff Radebe who made a quick stop over.

"My wife wakes up in the early hours of the morning to ensure that the children are well prepared for school  and for the day. She takes care of home," Reddy shared.
