THE SE­CRET IS OUT!

Carol’s ditched af­ter Mat­shidiso tells all

TV Plus (South Africa) - - FRONT PAGE -

Mat­shidiso (Buhle Sa­muels) has no fil­ter: she’ll say and do what­ever it takes to get what­ever she wants. And she’s ruth­less too! Mat­shidiso really wants the Mo­jalefa man­sion, but when Lerumo (John Mo­ra­pama) tries to stall her on Mon­day 14 De­cem­ber, she goes in for the kill and ex­poses Carol’s (Phuti Khomo) pa­ter­nity se­cret, forc­ing Lerumo and his son Mo­ra­pedi (Ran­tebeng Maka­pan) to fight over who’ll be the un­born baby’s dad.

ROUND 1: MO­RA­PEDI WINS

Mo­ra­pedi ex­plodes when Mat­shidiso goes pub­lic with the news that Carol slept with both fa­ther and son. Carol, who’s at the hos­pi­tal be­cause the baby is in dis­tress, isn’t aware of what’s hap­pen­ing but Mo­ra­pedi makes a bee­line for her bed­side on Wed­nes­day 16 De­cem­ber. Says Phuti, “Mo­ra­pedi was the only one who didn’t know about the baby sit­u­a­tion. Lerumo knew and his wife Moriti (Tshidi Vera), who also knows about her hus­band’s cheating, promised to keep it a se­cret. Mo­ra­pedi’s up­set and Carol has to re­as­sure him that she still loves him.” Nat­u­rally, the news un­set­tles their re­la­tion­ship and it’s more com­pli­cated now. “It won’t be the same and Mo­ra­pedi has a de­ci­sion to make about Carol and the baby,” adds Phuti. Lerumo ar­rives at the hos­pi­tal and there is an­other ar­gu­ment with Mo­ra­pedi, who’s cer­tain that he’s the fa­ther as Carol trusted him to be the fa­ther.

ROUND 2: LERUMO WANTS OUT

Lerumo’s ir­ri­tated and hu­mil­i­ated by Carol, so he does what he thinks is the right thing: to leave her alone. On Mon­day 21 De­cem­ber, Lerumo tends to his wife Moriti, who’s bat­tling can­cer (read more on p11). He tries to get ev­ery­thing that she needs and make what’s left of her life as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble. His play­ing nurse to his sick wife makes their son Mo­ra­pedi sit up and no­tice his mother’s de­te­ri­o­rat­ing con­di­tion and he sets off to help Moriti too. While this leaves Carol on her own in hos­pi­tal, it’s some­thing that Phuti can understand. “Find­ing out about Moriti is dif­fi­cult for Carol as she’d never wish such ill­ness upon her, de­spite their fight­ing.”

FI­NAL ROUND: CAROL LOSES

While both po­ten­tial baby­dad­dies are away help­ing Moriti, Carol’s preg­nancy hits yet an­other speed­bump on Tues­day 22 De­cem­ber. Her doc­tor and friend Ntha­be­leng (Mona Monyane) re­veals that there are com­pli­ca­tions and the baby isn’t re­spond­ing to the med­i­ca­tion, so Carol won’t be able to carry the baby to full term. “There are a num­ber of things making this preg­nancy dif­fi­cult,” Phuti says. “Carol has to make de­ci­sions by her­self – and she can­not go through this preg­nancy alone.” An anx­ious and freaked-out Carol is told that she has to have the baby now or it might not sur­vive. She also re­alises that there’s no­body around to help her. Not only are there mount­ing hos­pi­tal bills, “she’s alone and her big­gest fear is that this child will never see its fa­ther again,” Phuti adds. But who is the fa­ther?

Mat­shidiso loves noth­ing more than

making trou­ble.
