Mnakwethu Happily Ever After Season 2 up to Episode 9| I am done with this mess!

Mr Mbeje senior had me in stitches!

Mnakwethu Happily Ever After Season 2 up to episode 8. I’m here for the Shelembe women🙌!

I decided that I will do this last review and just play it by ear from now on. This is trashy television at its best and one can’t help but feel embarrassed for watching it.

I am worried about young Zulu women in KZN. We can’t just ignore the toxicity that they are subjected to routinely. The young woman having a baby by Gezane (who openly admitted that he is a peadophile) and uttering the words “I am happy that I have borne him a boy child…”Mbeje and Qondanisa using love potions to “strengthen” their relationships is no different from guys spiking women’s drinks in clubs or preying on drunk girls, disabled women and children!

Mbeje’s father killed me with his questions to his mthakashana of a son. Oh that old man is fun to watch. He didn’t condemn the use of the love potion though.

Even Qondanisa visited 3 seconds to get muthi to use on his wives, citing Diaz and Samantha as the reason but I suspect MaMchunu building a house without him also prompted this action. He can see that he’s slowly losing her. Women, you are on your own.

Bheki disrespecting not only his father but MaShelembe’s family and his inability to see his faults was the last straw for me. He blames social media for the things that he caused with his nsika. MaShelembe wanting nothing to do with this bum gives me pleasure and the support her mom gives her is what all women deserve from their mothers, not the ‘bekezela mntanami’ nonsense that is so common in our society. There’s hope for women folk after all.

For now, I am taking a break from this madness yabo Dulas and company.

Cheers bangane🥂

The Wife on Showmax Season 2 Episodes 4-6 Review | Calling it quits for real

This show should be called taxi wars

As I bow out gracefully!PSA: If you haven’t watched today’s episodes of #TheWifeShowmax don’t bother, the trailer didn’t lie, there is nothing to watch🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️Wasted morning, wasted data, wasted logic trying to figure out all the obvious blunders in the storyline 😭😭Somebody please explain to me how a bestie would burn R80m meant to buy your freedom and how do you not raise your bestie’s kids but gang up with so called bestie to hate on the woman who raised her kids.The spices Zandile added when telling Mandisa about the conversation she had with Hlomu were so unnecessary. This script is a hot mess.It’s time to give up on this🤦‍♀️@STAINEDGLASSTV1 you sure ruined sisi Dudu’s books. Inspired my foot!

The Real Housewives of Durban Season 2 Episode 5 Review| Halloween by Mrs KG Icon

Imicimbi.com, the Real Housewives of Durban Season 2 Episode 5 was lit!

I have decided to accept Mom Queen as a cast member of the show. This however doesn’t or rather shouldn’t make her fair game, she’s an elder. Annie saying that she doesn’t need a costume for Halloween, she can just come as herself was offensive af.

Speaking of Annie, how long is she gonna pretend to not know isiZulu hhenina? I wasn’t amused by how they made a mockery of their isiZulu lesson. It was a clear depiction of how they regard Zulu people and culture. No one will call them out on it because we have accepted the status quo.

Mrs Icon was sure to mention Odwa the minute cameras started rolling. She did a great job with Sorisha’s party though. She looked so uncomfortable around the ladies.

I loved Mabusi’s entrance. She just mustn’t go back to being Nonku’s schmuck. I beg o!

Londie is so shady though😂😂😂, athi LaConco came to the Halloween party as Schotho🙄. Had the comment been from LaConco to someone else, tweeps would have called her a bully. Whatever comment she makes is judged differently. I think that perhaps people are confusing her for her baby daddy.

Thobile may have found a friend in Nonku😂, but I honestly don’t think it would last. They had a lunch and guess what they discussed, her polygamous marriage 🙄. She came to the Halloween party in regular clothes and everybody else had made the effort to adhere to the theme. She looked like a fish out of water.

I enjoy LaConco and Londie’s confessionals. UJoji noMageba had me in stitches yho. Mom Queen and LaConco could become great friends yazi, omnye is young trying to act ols omnye is old, trying to fit in with the youngins, crazy outfits and all.

Annie has a stylist😂😂😂. I’m guessing he’s our Phupho for this season! Sorisha uses pot stirrers & remains squicky clean. Why was Annie the one in charge of the “Truth or dare” game? And who told her to expose Nonku as S’fiso’s groupie? 👀

Did y’all catch that “iqaba” has been used to describe both Ayanda and S’fiso by Nonku on this show? 🤔 Nonku needs to focus on her healing but before she realizes that, she remains the gift that keeps on giving. Reality tv gold!

The Wife on Showmax Season 2 Episodes 4-6| Snoozefest

The Wife on Showmax Season 2 Episodes 4-6 was underwhelming. If mediocre was a show…

I struggled with this post because I made a promise to review the whole season but I also don’t want to write negativity. On the other hand, I don’t want to fake positivity where there’s none so, I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Prof Schulze, my Hydrology lecturer drilled it into my head that I should follow through and meet deadlines, no matter how uninspired I am. He also taught me SA water law, computer modeling, ACCRU, SCS, LOG Gumble, etc. Just FYI. My point is that I listened and learned a lot from the man, both academically and personally. His voice haunts me when I don’t feel like doing something.

Back to the show:
The Zulu brothers were arrested then released, whilst in jail, the woman replacing Zandile in prison grew exasperated by Nkosana’s failure to honor his part of the deal and now wants out.

Majola brothers failed to take back the chairpersonship of the taxi association, which is now in Nqoba’s hands. Nkosana’s now free to play happy families with Zandile and the kids. I was irritated that he was not prioritizing Nomusa’s family.

Zandile’s still not liking Hlomu and Mqoqi also seems to dislike Hlomu in solidarity. Hlomu is pregnant and had to tell Mqhele before the beating started. Ladies, do we really want to be with overgrown boys who can’t process their feelings like reasoning adults?

I wasn’t tickled by the hospital scenes of Qhawe coveting Mahlomu and the fact that it’s not even in the book irks me nje. Can Naledi come already.

Nqoba’s antics makes the show bearable. Zikhona and Abdul can act though and they bring their characters to life. I’m very close to quiting this show, I can’t waste my daytime data on this nonsense.

That’s my two cents worth folks, I’m not promising a post for next week. Just saying.

The Real Housewives of Durban Season 2 Episode 4 Review| Mama Queen vs Annie

The queens of Durban

Real Housewives of Durban Season 2 Episode 4 had no other mcimbi except for the black tie, polygamy mess.Why did Thobile keep people waiting for hours on end at the black tie event? Why couldn’t she just tag along with Jojo and Sorisha to Nonku’s party or to Jojo’s sip and see?Vivian and Musa already know each other. Question: why is Vivian so close to some well-known polygamists? What did LaConco say to Sorisha when they introduced konje? Glad we got to see Sorisha’s life this week, 2 toilets and all. I also want my own toilet yazi.Thobile and Sorisha’s dog walking was so awkward, when she sent Thobile to go get the stroller from the house, it felt like she was demeaning her. Sorisori must take Thobile under her wings hle.I’m getting trophy wife vibes from Kgolo and Annie’s body language and conversations yazi. When Kgolo didn’t translate for Annie, I was kinda surprised. Isn’t that how they do it at gatherings with extended family? 🤔It all made sense when he told her that she has to learn isiZulu. I would think that is something people discuss before saying their “I Do”s. Had LaConco been the one suggesting that Annie must learn isiZulu, people would’ve been up in arms. Annie would have been on some, “but you are not anybody’s wife.. “Jojo came through with the “shut up” when Nonku was busy generalizing. Nonku sounded drunk yazi. I quite enjoyed the quad biking scenes and the come to Jesus that Jojo and Nonku had in Hillcrest. Both have experienced abusive men and are not shy to share about it. I forsee a deep friendship brewing here!Was so excited to see Mabusi being introduced to Londie but the “I know your man from the streets” comment shattered my dreams of a fun trio, which I want so badly. LaConco explained that she’s not friends with Thobile and that Thobile giving her a cold shoulder at Vuma FM is the reason she’s not amuzed by her onscreen sweetness. Reminds me of what MaYeni once said about people putting on a show for the cameras.Londi needs a storyline & to not be dragged into Annie’s messiness. Mama Queen is a full cast member at this point🙆I hope Kgomotso is invited to the Halloween party, I wanna see umfazi kaOdwa bakithi😂

The Wife on Showmax Season 2 Episodes 1-3 Review

Zandile the Resolute about to be butchered by @Stainedglasstv1, We’ll watch and complain as usual.

The Wife Season 2 lackluster Episodes 1-3 dropped at 5am today.

Zandile resumes (or at least tries to) her duties as the matriarch of the Zulu family. The kids don’t remember her. I don’t know if I would like Zandile if the role was being played by anybody else. I love me some Khanyi Mbau!

The story is no longer about Hlomu and Mqhele’s relationship, thank God. The attitude Zandile is giving Hlomu and the ganging up with Mandisa against Hlomu is so familiar. Relationships between omakoti unfortunately are oftentimes like this. Would it kill women folk to support each other and be grateful if someone has stepped up to raise your children in your absence?

If Mandisa is such a good friend, why didn’t she raise Zandile’s children?

Anyway, Qhawe’s still pining for Hlomu and I can’t wait for Naledi to come into his life. I am gonna try to forget about Zandile the resolute, the book and just enjoy the show.

The sex scenes were over the top as usual. I have no desire to see people’s body parts at 5 in the morning, ake nime kancane👎. Thank you for being here to hear my two cents worth. Until next week, keep well.

The Real Housewives of Durban Season 2 Episode 3| Black Tie Boredom

The chopped up Episode 3 of Real Housewives of Durban Season 2 dropped this morning at 5am. Whose idea was this 5am crap @showmaxonline, midnight worked fine last year. Why fix what’s not broken?

The editing of the little scenes wasn’t to my liking. At the sip and see, MamakaLondie with her little speech was so cringe, there’s nothing wrong with speaking your Mageba Mama.

LaConco showered the baby with Randela’s! Ingane iyakhungwa, I am surprised that Nonku didn’t bring any money for the baby. It’s our culture after all. Jojo offered for her hubby to serve the ladies, which is not how Zulus operate. That created a bit of friction between her and LaConco.

Jojo’s annoyance with LaConco and LaConco dissing Thobile caught me by surprise, angifuni ukungasho. Jojo dissed LaConco’s mint water and salad (yes, I caught that shade!). LaConco has a beautiful home though 👌

As usual everyone was eager to know who LaConco is dating and who she’d bring to the blacktie event. This obsession is not making sense to me. I had secretly hoped for her to make Mabusi her plus one.

Annie and Nonku tried to have a come to Jesus after their uneventful, down right boring paintball shooting sketch but both are not really ready to let this petty little beef go just yet. To be honest, I prefer this squabble to mama Jack, the queen and her outrageous costumes.

I am not sure how Thobile is going to integrate herself into this group. I feel like the lateness/ grand entrance at her black tie event was off putting and over the top. I hope LaConco’s relationship with MaYeni is not going to interfere with Thobile’s Housewives journey.

We saw very little of Sorisha this week. She has no storyline vele. So far, we’ve had 4 events. We must just accept that the Durban franchise is structured this way. Looking forward to more events.

Until next week, ciao!

The Real Housewives of Durban Season 2 Episode 2 Review| Thobile’s debut

The Real Housewives of Durban Season 2 Episode 2| Another event #RHODurbanS2E2 #RHODurban

It seems like a continuation of Season 1, with each episode being an event of sorts.

Who told production that we’d be interested in Nonku’s parents’ issues? Mina, I want to see less mom Queen and more Thobile Mseleku, don’t know about other people.

Imagine LaConco, Londie, Mabusi and Thobile chilling together bezikhininda bezithamunda ngoMageba…🕯️SBWL those types of scenes.

Tweeps were so mean about the scene of Thobile with Musa eMzumbe, to the point of dissing her decor and her serving Musa juice on a tray. The perception that rural women don’t deserve certain things is so outdated. I think as much as people have signed up for reality tv, they remain human beings with feelings and dignity, which should be respected.

Annie and Nonku are really not getting along and LaConco’s comment about Annie’s cake decoration being a good representation of the energy she gives off was spot on. That cake was a mess.

Sorisha must own her shade this season. This thing of Nonku-inspired cake decoration was shady af. Jojo shaded Londie’s #fame and was unapologetic about it, that’s what Sorisori should do.

The complaints about isiZulu is ridiculous and very telling, in my opinion. I mean, these ladies have had black nannies, gardeners, maids, school mates, colleagues who speak isiZulu all their lives. Why haven’t they learned the language?

Speaking of isiZulu, LaConco is really opening up to the other cast members. I think I’m going to love this friendship she’s developing with Londie, hopefully ukuphapha won’t get in the way. The question about Jojo’s tattoos was hilarious 😂, it left me wondering 🤔

Mabusi and LaConco’s friendship seems to have deepened and they are both so calm and mature. I like it.

I can’t wait to see how they receive MaKhumalo Mseleku into their circle.

Until next week, cheers 🥂

My take on The Wife on Showmax Episodes 38-40| Prison Break

I can’t wait to see Khanyi Mbau and Mondli Makhoba deliver couple goals on season 2

Greetings to all of you who take your time to read and watch my posts, I truly appreciate you.

I’m so fed up with this story, I actually waited until loadshedding at 16h00 to watch it. They took sis Dudu’s book and butchered it so callously.

I wish I had never read the books. I envy the people who are seeing this story with a fresh eye and not comparing it with the book.

The Wife Episodes 38-40 on @showmaxonline filler scenes are so annoying, why can’t they be about the past. Show us some childhood memories of the main characters or something @stainedglasstv1. Please remove the gogo and mkhulu characters next season, it’s enough 🙆🏿

Nqoba defending and protecting Mandisa after she did the unspeakable (& unquleble) of firstly burning the moola and then killing the commissioner’s wife was sweet to watch. When he tried to beat up Mqhele, I felt his conviction about not raising a hand to a woman.

Mandisa is not appreciated for the things that she does for the family. I think that the storyline has been consistent in showing the audience how she’s disregarded. It’s probably because of how she and Nqoba met. She doesn’t make the best decisions yena overall nje.

Drunk Hlomu was executed perfectly, Mbali can act guys! I found myself being a bit judgmental and apathetic towards her and the pain that she has subjected herself to. The wine and knife on either hands were perfect props. Good job to the team. Hlomu’s holier than thou image and status is officially over. It’s 2 down, 5 to go on the 7 men she asked Mqhele about, in front of all the brothers 😂

I found myself feeling sorry for Mqhele when he realized that the blood he had on his hands after beating Hlomu was because of the miscarriage that he had caused. He broke his own heart. Kuthiwa ohlaba eyakhe akakhuzwa (if you kill your own children, nobody will stop you).

Hlomu doing the nasty with Qhawe threw me and it was so uncomfortable to watch. We didn’t need to see Kwenzo’s dark bums, yho hhai bakithi and all the feathers on the bed…

So glad the person who caught Hlomu and Qhawe was Langa.

The biggest heist of the season went without a hitch! Zandile is out, prison break style.

This is my 2 cents worth y’all!
