First Look at Real Housewives of Durban Star After Tying the Knot [PICS]

Annie Ludick & Kgolo Mthembu Tie the Knot in Style!

Published

on

You had to be there to appreciate the special moment when The Real Housewives of Durban (RHODurban) cast member Annie Ludick and husband Kgolo Mthembu celebrated their nuptials. The white wedding was held at the luxurious La Paris Estate in the Cape Winelands and was attended by close-knit family and friends.

Luckily, Showmax will bring the glamorous wedding to your TV screens. You’ll get to see guests dancing the night away in celebration of Mr and Mrs Mthembu’s union.

Looking as gorgeous as ever, the bride wore an unconventional pink wedding gown designed by Jacqui Emmanuel. “I’m an avid fan of the 1920s-1960s period of Hollywood glam,” says Annie.

“That particular period of fashion was elegant and classy – the women of that era were super lady-like and that’s something I really love about that period. I also love the Victorian era – I’m a historical-romance person at heart, so to combine those elements of that era onto my wedding gown was a dream come true and it says a lot about the person I am.”

Mr Mthembu looked just as dapper in his Prince Bespoke suits. Yes, he changed twice, and finished off his wedding attire with some stylish Louis Vuitton shoes.

2021 has proven to be a special year for Annie. Not only did she marry the love of her life but she’s now officially part of Showmax history after the first episode of RHOD broke Showmax’s first-day viewing record at the end of January.

At the time of writing, RHOD remains the most popular series on Showmax, after the two part-reunion, hosted by Phat Joe, launched on the weekend. It’s also now screening every Sunday at 7pm on Mzansi Magic.

“This season of my life is so powerful in shaping my future,” says Annie. “I am so grateful to share my wedding with the people I love and to truly celebrate life and new beginnings.

The last year has been so difficult and uncertain: my wedding has been delayed so many times. So I am so grateful and blessed that everything was absolutely as I imagined: a perfect start to my new chapter.”

The SAFTA’s Blasted for Pulling Katlego Maboe’s Nomination

Mess.

Published

on

Katlego Maboe 2020

The South African Film & Television awards are facing widespread backlash after removing Katlego Maboe from their Best TV Presenter Public Vote category.

In a statement, the awards show explained that they had deliberated over the matter of “concerns regarding the nomination of Mr.Katlego Maboe”, and in the end decided to rescind his nomination. Effectively, fans will no longer have the option to vote for Maboe, who has previously won in the category.

Although the National Film and Video Foundation of South Africa (NFVF) did not expand on the said concerns, it is believed the decision to drop Maboe has to do with the cheating allegations that rocked the internet last year.

In viral footage that circulated on social media in October 2020, the Expresso presenter can be heard detailing a confession to counts of infidelity.  In the video, Katlego confesses to having an affair and names the person he’d been meeting at a hotel.

But this was last year, and many have taken to social media to blast the SAFTA’s for their decision.

Bonang Files Lawsuit against Podcaster Over Drug Allegations

The allegations were ‘false’ and ‘unlawful’.

Published

on

Bonang Matheba

Bonang Matheba is demanding an apology and R500 000 from a podcast host who made damning allegations about her on a podcast clip that circulated on 9 May 2021.

In a lawsuit letter published by Bonang on Sunday and addressed to Rea Gopane from her attorneys Thompson Wilks, the offence of defamation of character is detailed.

Dated 16 May 2021, the letter charges that allegations that Bonang introduced her ex-boyfriend AKA to drugs were “false” and “unlawful”. The letter further states; “This defamatory allegation is further exacerbated by the shocking insinuation that the death of AKA’s Anele Tembe (Nellie) was due to Anele’s use of cocaine.”

Earlier this month on May 9th, Gopane and his podcast co-host Blvck Steph on Everything SA Music were talking about the death of AKA’s fiancé Anele Tembe when Gopane made shocking claims that entertainment reporter Scoop Makhathini, aka Siyabonga Ngwekazi, had told them in confidence that “AKA is on [cocaine] and Bonang is the one that got him into cocaine.”

The letter demands Gopane to pay the full R500 000 in damages by Monday at 16:00.

Neither Scoop nor AKA, real name Kiernan Forbes, have commented on the matter.

Phat Joe To Host of ‘The Real Housewives of Durban’ Reunion

Phat Joe Returns to Host RHOD Reunion Special!

Published

on

Phat Joe RHOJ Reunion Season 2

Phat Joe has resurfaced again from obscurity to perform hosting duties on the Real Housewives of Durban Reunion. The radio jock is too familiar with the Real Housewives franchise, having sat in the same seat moderating the reunion of the sister show in the Jo’burg leg.

Joe’s brash style of presenting has created a cult following in which fans expect his comments to add fuel to the fire. If his show Cheeky Palate, which debuted late last year is any indication of what to expect, there might some tongues wagging between the cast members.

Fans of the reality show drew comparisons between the Real Housewives of Johannesburg and the coastal version of the show – only to reach one unanimous conclusion, the drama in the former was much more spicy than in the latter.

While we didn’t see much bickering or weaves being pulled of people’s heads, the RHOD was by far the most glamorous of the two shows. It will be interesting to find out if there are any friendships or animosity that exists post production.

If anyone has the skillset to make the cast members reveal their secret, Joe’s your guy. News of his appointment was broken by entertainment commentator, Phil Mpela on his Twitter page.

There was no word on whether the show will be brought back for a second season. In any case, make sure you don’t miss the full recap of shenanigans that took place in this season of the Real Housewives of Durban on the 29th of April.
