In The News…

April 17, 2012 by  

Judging by what everyone (as in everyone who loves gossip) is talking about, you’d swear Zahara was the only story making headlines this weekend. Well, she wasn’t… so let’s catch up on what we missed!

So, there was something about Khanyi and her new Kwela man, news that Lizelle Tabane aka Juju chick is now dating Teko Modise, Francis Rasuge, the police woman who was killed by her boyfriend in 2004, was finally laid to rest and I am glad that her family finally has closure in this matter.

Apparently Nicki Minaj deleted her Twitter account… because The Nicki Daily leaked a clip from her upcoming album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. She thereafter blocked them, which started a Twitter war and she got mean comments from her fans and eventually she decided to leave Twitter. *sigh*. I think it’s just a stunt… she’ll be back.

SA’s Got Talent, the reality show is coming back and has now been taken over by eTV. Seems like eTV is trying to become a leader when it comes to Reality TV. They are also working on Kelly Khumalo’s reality show, Rolling With Kelly, and the show is in production now. Apparently every season they roll with a different celeb, Zola had his season, now it’s Kelly’s and after Kelly it will be someone else.

I never got to see Zola’s but I’m looking forward to Kelly’s, should be interesting.

I never ever believed the rumours that Ashton Kutcher was dating Rihanna because I can’t imagine what they could possibly have in common. Now word on the street is that Ashton is seeing Mila Kunis, who starred with Justin Timberlake in Friends With Benefits.

I like Mila and  think it’s great that Ashton’s dating someone his age, if he is. It will make Demi feel really crappy though… Mila’s reps have come out to defend the dating rumour saying that the two have been friends for years. Well, it’s Hollywood… time will tell and I’m gonna believe it… just coz I like them together.

In other Ashton news, he hasn’t made a comment about the news that he will be playing Steve Jobs in an upcoming biopic.

Now that they are done with Hyundai, Louis Vuitton is suing Warner Bros for featuring a fake LV handbag in Hangover 2, claiming that it is tarnishing their brand. Warner Bros is saying they should sue whoever produced the bag… ayi, Hollywood!

Brad and Angelina Jolie are engaged finally, I hope it’s a good thing for them, I just got nervous when I heard… like eish, what if they break up now as a result.. Marriage is kinda scary these days.

Back Home:

Former Channel O & Vuzu Presenter Nonhle Thema is said to be selling her Precious Ivy perfume in Church. Apparently she set up a stand at Alleluia International Ministries in Lyndhurst and promised to give 10% of the profits to the church but some church members aren’t happy… In her quote she says it’s all part of her social development work. I’m curious about the scent but I wouldn’t go as far as buying.

The African Movie Academy Awards are taking place this Saturday in Nigeria and I’m so so so so so so jealous! Some of our South Africans stars nominated will be there and so will Hollywood actress Lynn Whitfield (pictured above) and Morris Chestnut. 2Face and ASA are also expected to perform, it’s so gonna be a great party and I wish everyone who’s going to Naija a safe trip and I know they will have fun!

Yesterday the internet was abuzz with Tupac’s hologram performance at the Coachella festival in Carlifonia. You can watch the “performance” below, so so amazing!

    Dear LV

    The route to downtown Joburg is that way ————–>,you enough people to sue for a good year.

  3. RexonaABC on Tue, 17th Apr 2012 3:37 am 

    LOL @ Teko and Lizelle, it’s kinda…….
    I hope Khanyi gets what she wants and according to SW, it sounded like the guy really likes her, but then it’s SW.
    I love Angie, hope they remain happy hle ba2ng.
    I don’t think Demi should feel crappy, their time is up with Ashton, so any of them is allowed to follow their hearts.
    @ BS, have you watched the BlackBerry Babes naija movie?

  4. fabulicious on Tue, 17th Apr 2012 4:33 am 

    Lmao at selling perfume in church! Hay I’ve heard it all!!

    Is Lizelle thaaaaat desperate? Kubuhlungu ukuba loose yazi!

  5. inURdreams on Tue, 17th Apr 2012 6:15 am 

    selling a perfume at church, I have never heard. The universe has taught NT a very valuable lesson, very fast nafuthi. I’m not even curious about the smell I lost interest in her a long time ago.her marketing diploma didn’t prepare her for the socio-cultural trends of our country shem and contrary to popular belief NOT any publicity is good her case BAD publicity was just that BAD publicity. Moving along Khanyi Mbau eeerr. Moving along Rolling with Khelly eeerr.

  6. LadySasha on Tue, 17th Apr 2012 7:32 am 

    Death by Non-Claire selling perfumes at church, lolest. Life must be really tough for her, let’s hope she invested some of her “millions”

  7. Tebatjo on Tue, 17th Apr 2012 8:18 am 

    I’m also think Ashton and Mila would make a cute couple… As for Brad and Ange, I think it might still work out coz they didn’t really rush into marriage, I mean its been 7 years now…

  8. Nerlee on Tue, 17th Apr 2012 8:50 am 

    NT is serious about this business, hope it will be worth it!

  9. LadySasha on Tue, 17th Apr 2012 9:00 am 

    Selling perfume at a church?? Is she that desperate? Lmao!! Let’s hope our very own “Beyonce” invested some of her “millions”

    Speaking of fake LV,,,, what is this craze in Jo’burg with fake LV, Jimmy Choo, Buberry, etc (bags, jeans, belts, jackets, clothes) I see every corner I go? What happened to wearing your Truworths clothes that you can afford? Why must people go to an extent of buying fakes?> especially when you DONT even look like someone that will afford an LV bag, why embarrass yourself? Well not only Jo’burg, I saw this craze again in Mpumalanga this past weekend… People lets love ourselves toe

    Hi guys.. I’ve been silent blogging for quite a long time and thanks to just curious I now know a lot about a lot. Because of this platform, I have been made aware of certain people thatI wouldn’t have known about ever in my life. The one person I am specifically curious about is this Melody Motha chic. She’s always mentioned in some comments and that has triggered an interest from my side and i have found myself so intrigued by her life based on what i see on twitter and some of the comments on JC. Now i just wanna know what that chic’s claim to “fame” or popularity is. I know i’m gonna be attacked and told how lifeless i am etc, but truthfully, im JUST CURIOUS…

  26. Smang-mang Warona on Tue, 17th Apr 2012 10:59 am 

    Nkey.. what in the world made you think I’m trying to score kwaa’s and LOL’s heh? Here I am blogging for myself minding my own busines only to be told I’m complaining.. ‘Skambhora plz..

    @Zolile Hellloooo she’s NONHLE THEMA. The richest girl in (S)Africa. And ohhh the we have left her alone ages ago (hence she’s selling her perfume at church). People are just curious gore why would she choose church of all places. Where’s Edgars? Red Square etc or maybe her own perfume store (she can afford it mos). And I’m really disappointed in Smurfs, why ba sa reke perfume ya ngwana e mong, she’s trying to make a living naye.

  50. sxylin on Tue, 17th Apr 2012 6:05 pm

    @Ntombi really? I actually thought this rumour is true, since pearl has so many pics of herself @ Primrose’s house and some bloggr here claimed to know them from Welkom, apparently they share a father

  54. Ntombi Yomzulu on Wed, 18th Apr 2012 12:54 pm

    Someone asked what a hologram is. Its a 3dimensional projection of an image, but that Tupac one wasn’t actually a hologram because its 2dimensional. If you noticed you could only see the front of it and not the back or side. It’s like a regular projector on a white screen, its just that they found a way to project the image on stage without a screen in the background.
