Claws Are Coming Out On The Next Episode Of My Kitchen Rules



My Kitchen Rules

It’s officially “game on” this week on My Kitchen Rules South Africa as the second group of home cooks reach the halfway mark in their Instant Restaurant phase of the competition.

Last week, Bloemfontein husband and wife Jamandi and Machiel managed to earn an impressive score of 68 out of 100, narrowly beating Charnell and Kerry’s initial score of 67 in week one. With the competition officially heating up now, the claws are likely to come out when it comes to scoring the rest of the Instant Restaurants.

“At this stage if there’s one couple that intimidates us and makes us feels the pressure, it’s Brent and Andrew,” Jamandi admitted ahead of Brent and Andrew’s Instant Restaurant in Dainfern, Johannesburg this week.

Best friends Charnell and Kerry – who now find themselves at the bottom of the leaderboard – were also curious about what the fiancés have up their sleeves for this week. “The boys have been performing at the tables, but let’s see if they can perform in the kitchen,” Charnel noted.

Brent and Andrew, who are the self-confessed “good guys” of the competition will undoubtedly be hoping for positive ‘vibes’ throughout the evening, but will the rest of their competitors be impressed enough by their food to vote generously?

If people are going to watch television, I want them to learn from it too.”

Real Housewives of Johannesburg: Brinnette and Evodia’s Tea Party Bust Up



Real Housewives of Johannesburg

We saw this one coming from a distance, but Friday night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Johannesburg finally confirmed suspicions of a brewing feud between Brinnette and Evodia.

There’s been plenty of shade and mudslinging between the girls since the season one premiere, but the tossing around of some damning allegations pretty much spelt out any possibility of them hugging it out.

Last week’s allegations of Brinnette borrowing Athania’s Porche to keep up appearances circulated around quite a bit in the Mogase household, with Mercy finally confronting her mother’s friend to get to the bottom of the scandal.


Prior to the episode airing, Evodia had taken to Instagram to blast Brinnette for allegedly borrowing ‘people’s clothes’, which we later found out was a reference to a handbag borrowed from Athania during the night in question.


Fast forward to the lush tea party hosted by Evodia at a fancy hotel, where she brought out the ladies for some winding down. While a pyjama party brought them together for some of the most intimate and raw moments we’ve seen on the show so far, the morning after came with drama that undid all of that.

It all started with Brinnette inviting a friend, Olwethu, to join the lunch, without prior notice to Evodia. Olwethu showed up at the party with her baby, and instantly demanded that all the ladies should sanitise. That didn’t go down with Evodia, who felt disrespected by Brinnette’s actions.


“My Darling, unfortunately, you can’t come here and start calling shots”, Evodia charged from across the table, clearly in no mood to sanitise her hands. “This is my party, you can’t prioritise your baby at my party”, she later added during a diary session.

Olwethu, caught in the crossfire, later explained that it was never her intentions to make an appearance while the ladies were dining.

Was Brinnette wrong for inviting a friend without alerting Evodia? Was Evodia’s reaction extra? Scroll down and leave a comment!
