Yvonne Left At The Alter: Scandal! Nuptials End In Tears

Published

on

It was a setting right off a story book. One could be forgiven for using “fairy-tale-wedding” to describe the scenic view and the elegant get-up that the actors went through to capture the scene. However, the reality is that no wedding is without its hiccups. Scandal! characters Yvonne Thebe (Kgomotso Christopher) and Damon Bradbury (Craig Urbani) were set to melt South African hearts when they finally tied the knot after a rocky start to their relationship. The couple had survived multiple attempts at driving a wedge between them from the hands of siblings, business partners to past lovers. Thus it was a befitting  conclusion to wed, silence all the naysayers once and for all.

Speaking to Craig, he’s description of the onscreen romance is a combination of high level of acting prowess and good chemistry. “What sets the acting apart depends on who you playing against and opposite and who you acting with. She’s (Kgomotso) such a professional, everything is very unforced, nothing is pretentious. As long as you as her co-actor are ready to go and have done your prep the magic happens. It helps if you clique as people. I adore her. I always look forward to my scenes with her” Craig gushes.

In similar vein, Kgomotso sang Craig’s praises, attributing the good vibes seen on screen to great acting. “I don’t believe in good vibes, I think Craig is a professional, I am a professional, he’s trained, I’m trained. I think good vibes is what viewers experience when all those elements work together at the same time. Also being comfortable as an artist that you in good hands of a professional, talented and prepared co-actor” enthused Kgomotso.

“We’re not messing around, we’re not dealing with people that are trying to horn their craft, dealing with people who are at the top of their game”.

With the wedding taking a turn for the worst, we broached the subject of what happens after with much caution. “Ironically, Damon came in playing games and found a kindred spirit in Yvonne, someone who was a grifter like him, someone difficult to trust, there was always an agenda. But I do believe that he fell a lot heavier than he would care to admit. The later story will reveal perhaps that Damon’s feelings are much more real than he might thinks” admitted Craig without revealing too much about the relationship. Regarding Damons charges, fans will have to tune in to see what happens. “We’re yet to find out if jail time is on the cards, but we’ll definitely see an unraveling of who Damon Bradbury really is, enough with the half-truths, the lies, we find out how he actually feels about Yvonne”.

Having dawned a dress flown in from Bahrain and left at the alter, Yvonne is left to pick up the pieces. Whether she picks the pieces up alone is a different matter all together. “This character is so delicious that me as the actress I don’t even know. She’s a woman who makes sure that she  always has a few bees buzzing around the queen bee and therefore there are no guarantees. She always makes sure that there are one, two or three more options” shares Kgomotso. Catch Scandal! weekdays at 7:30PM on etv to see what unfolds next.

Real Housewives of Johannesburg: The Season’s Shadiest Episode Yet!

Lerika and Olwethu have shaken up the show’s dynamics and we wonder how things will look by the end of this heated first season

Published

Real Housewives of Johannesburg

Friday night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Johannesburg has truly shaken table. As we edge closer to the end of the first season, we couldn’t help but wonder if the main cast will change dramatically when the show returns for a second coming. It looks like that Lerika and Olwethu aren’t playing with their bag!

Lerika shocked everyone when she appeared to be throwing her friend, Naledi, under the bus during a super shady roundtable over champagne review of Brinnette’s recent bachelorette party, which the girls are slamming for lacking “dirt” and “naughtiness.”

When Madam suggested that the shindig’s MC (Naledi) added to the dryness, Lerika failed to come to BFF’s defence, and instead remarked that she would be on the lookout for someone more fun for her own hypothetical party.

Her flip-floppy stunt earned her some wrath from the Mogases, who now feel that her intentions aren’t clear. Though there’s now no doubt, we need more Lerika on the show!

Lendy was still a no-show and we are starting to wonder if she will be returning for another season. We love that she’s quite an interesting fit on the show, always misfiring with her random and awkward – but still quite hilarious – jokes and jabs.

We’d hoped to see more of her this season; her life seems interesting enough and she’s clearly not afraid to speak her mind (leave for that one bizarre scene with her advancing disparaging comments to the help).

But, to be honest, we’ve had more consistency from friends of the show that we’ve had from her. Will she be stepping aside?

Naledi, who seems to be quite busy with one thing or another, has missed another episode.  Yet, her absence hasn’t really affected much, particularly with her friend Lerika really bringing us some tea on the show, part of which has been shading her. We wonder if there will be a fallout there. But we also wonder if Naledi will be coming back for season 2; and this time to show us more of her life, and invite us to her house?

And while Christall was not invited to the girls outing as it was arranged by her arch-rival – and the show’s apparent Queen B – Madam, she threw hectic shade at Olwethu, who brought her baby, again, without adding a note to her RSVP. Christall, who gave us some fierce sex appeal during her live performance of her song Wonder in a sheer number, didn’t beat around the bush in saying that she had no intentions of her spending her afternoon faffing over a baby. Damn!

Mercy’s friend, Pinky, came under fire from, well, Mercy. In a shocking twist of events, Mercy read Pinky to filth, saying that unlike her, she could never have an unplanned baby. Her remarks led to some heartfelt moments of Pinky revealing that she fell preggers at 22 after a diagnosis that gave her a scare of never being able to conceive.

Friday’s episode was a real shadefest, and it left us wondering how the dynamics between the girls will change.

Real Housewives of Johannesburg airs Fridays at 19:00 on 1Magic, DStv channel 103

Let’s set you up with how it actually works:

The bride-to-be has three days to plan her entire proposal and dream wedding. And although the thought alone will plunge you into instant mental hysteria, the girls are hooked up with a professional wedding planner so things don’t get too weird.

Fortunately for the ladies, the prospective in law family members and friends are all in on it. After the dream wedding has been put together, and the big day comes, it now becomes up to the partner to say yes. Or No.
