ADDICTED TO LOVE!
Lelo drugs Lizzy & hops into bed with Mangaliso! Charity is a cheater PLUS!
“Ah, that guy, he should run!” laughs Bongani Masondo. His character Mangaliso is dating wheelchairbound Elizabeth (Amanda Manku) but that doesn’t mean his eyes aren’t wandering. And that’s something Lizzy is going to learn the hard way, because by Monday 5 December, the guy nicknamed “Babymaker” is almost back in bed with his paroled babymamma Lelo (Amanda du-Pont).
Lelo’s been working her plan to get Mangaliso back since he visited her in jail back in May 2016 while she was still pregnant, and her plan notched up in mid-September when she was paroled and moved in with the couple. “He is only letting Lelo stay there so that he can be an active father to their baby Nosipho (Mbalienhle Tabu),” Bongani explains. “This was an arrangement for their child, not for Lelo to get back with him.” But tell that to Lelo – she has wanted her family back since day 1 and has been using dirty tricks to get the job done. “She did things like call Mangaliso upstairs to check on their child, knowing that because Elizabeth is in a wheelchair, she can’t come up to the loft room,” says Amanda. Bongani adds that “Lelo being the caring mother for their baby seems to have an effect on Mangaliso and he’s falling for her all over again”.
LITTLE MISS OPPORTUNISTIC
Lizzy’s been in a wheelchair since January 2016 when she was shot in a driveby while in the car with Mangaliso. But lately she’s been noticing strange sensations in her legs and she decided not to tell her man. Instead, she left for Turfloop on an impromptu trip on Tuesday 22 November and Bongani says that “she has frozen him out of what’s happening. Lizzy is keeping this giant secret and it’s causing tension between them” when she returns on Friday 25 November.
Like a jackal, Lelo can smell an opportunity a mile away. “Mangaliso has fallen for her trickery. Lelo has convinced him that she’s the victim, that she’s not at fault,” Bongani says. And Lelo is so devious that she’s even willing to drug Lizzy to get her way – on Friday 25 November she convinces her parole officer Thenjiwe (Nomsa Sonqishe) to give her sleeping pills.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Lelo is no saint and she was thrown in jail for attempted murder in November 2015. Despite knowing full well what she’s capable of, Mangaliso and Lizzy “are both blindsided by her trickery,” Bongani says, adding that “Lelo’s like, ‘I’m the babymamma and you’re the girlfriend. I get it. Let me help with the housework and cooking while you’re studying’”. That lulls the pair into a false sense of security, but the alarm bells are about to start ringing… especially when it comes to those “after-meal naps” that Elizabeth is suddenly enjoying so much.
MAN WITHOUT A PLAN
“Mangaliso acts now and deals with the consequences later. He loves Lizzy and Lelo in different ways,” Bongani explains. But then he starts getting intimate again with Lelo behind his girlfriend’s back from Tuesday 6 December. “This is a secret that he’s going to keep from Lizzy and it’s going to blow up in his face when it does come out.” Another secret that could blow up is Lelo’s pill power – Elizabeth finds the stash of sleeping pills on Thursday 1 December that Lelo’s been secretly feeding her in her food, but because of all the other drama going on in her life right now, she doesn’t connect the dots about what’s going on right under her roof…
Mangaliso is seduced by Lelo again. Lelo’s up to her old tricks again.
Elizabeth and Mangaliso are going through a rough patch in their relationship.
