So it’s been a few days since I was bathing in a sea of celebrities.I have literally gone, in the space of a few short days, from Cannes to Sebokeng to Auckland Park. That’s one of the best parts of my job. I get to see so many places in the world – and indeed South Africa – which is what I want to do.
The boys from Brothers&Sisters popped in for a visit the other day – and caused such a stir among the ladies in the office. Luke McFarlane and Dave Annable say the new season of the show, which airs in August, is filled with more even more family drama. Wouldn’t expect anything else!
The trial of the former matron at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls has been postponed again. It’s so strange, sitting in that empty white room, to think that such a big story takes place in such small surroundings. Virginia “Tiny” Makopo looks very much like a school girl herself, with her braids and small stature. She’s been accused of 13 counts of abuse, including one claim that she rubbed custard in the girls’ hair. The case starts up again at the Sebokeng Magistrates Court at the end of August.
The Auckland Park trip came about because of the protest march by a whole lot of actors, directors, writers and producers to the SABC HQ. I had never walked from Milpark along Kingsway Avenue to Auckland Park before so that was a new experience! Gotta love having the unions there – no-one knows how to protest like they do! Letha imali yami!
