A dis­grun­tled Din­tle (Ma­paseka Koe­tle) is, yet again, not be­ing show­ered in di­a­monds. In­stead she’s stuffed into an apart­ment with (in her eyes) com­mon trash like Stokkies ( Wayne van Rooyen), An­zani (Fulu Mu­gov­hani) and Lerumo (Tshepo Mos­ese). And when Din­tle’s hus­band Mangi (Kag­iso Modupe) moves in with them on Mon­day 27 June, it’s the last straw. Din­tle’s on the hunt for some­thing bet­ter and on Wed­nes­day 29 June she has him in her crosshairs – a wounded male, weak from al­co­hol and best of all, loaded. So what if he is Mangi’s cousin? Look out, Quin­ton (Brighton Ngoma)!


Din­tle’s ac­tu­ally fu­ri­ous with Mangi when she ap­proaches Quin­ton at lo­cal wa­ter­ing hole Qs to make her play. Any restau­rant own­er­ship plans that busi­ness­man Hec­tor (Tu­misho Masha) was mak­ing with Mangi were def­i­nitely off the ta­ble the mo­ment that Hec­tor un­cov­ered Mangi’s be­trayal on Tues­day 14 June. “Din­tle forces Mangi to go Quin­ton’s drunk… but is he drunk enough to be tempted by Din­tle? talk to Hec­tor’s busi­ness part­ner Naledi (Di­neo Moeketsi) be­cause it was in the pipe­line and the pa­pers were ready; it’s just that they weren’t signed. She tries to force Mangi to do il­le­gal stuff like forg­ing sig­na­tures,” re­veals Ma­paseka.

Mangi refuses to fol­low his wife’s sug­ges­tions and Din­tle isn’t giv­ing a thought to how he must feel. “She thought that she was go­ing to be this beau­ti­ful girl who was go­ing to be a host­ess at her hus­band’s restau­rant, but it didn’t hap­pen and she’s frus­trated and an­gry. The fact that he doesn’t have a job is even worse. Din­tle is the one who’s pay­ing rent. She didn’t sign up for that,” says Ma­paseka.


“Din­tle can see that Quin­ton has just bought a sports car but he’s vul­ner­a­ble and drink­ing. Quin­ton is mis­er­able. She sees an op­por­tu­nity and thinks, ‘Let me try my luck,’” says Ma­paseka. “She goes up to him and says, ‘Them­beka (Masasa Mban­geni – Quin­ton’s wife) is gone, so maybe you and me can be good to­gether.’ And if Quin­ton turns out to be nowhere near drunk enough to jump at that of­fer, Din­tle has an­other pro­posal up her sleeve for him – and it’s su­per cheeky… even for her!
