Strong-willed bach­e­lorette Getty (An­disiwe Dweba) is tired of wait­ing for her Mr Right. So she takes mat­ters into her own hands and asks out Lun­gelo (Anelisa Phewa), the new guy at work on Wed­nes­day 15 March. But Lun­gelo isn’t bit­ing. “He only sees her as his col­league,” ex­plains An­disiwe. “Getty’s not back­ing down though.” Turns out Lun­gelo’s got his sights set on her bestie Wandile (Chi Mhende) and that an­noys Getty. “She’s even will­ing to put her friend­ship on the line…” teases An­disiwe


While Getty is schem­ing for ways to get Lun­gelo’s at­ten­tion, he’s mak­ing plans with Wandile and on Thurs­day 16 March she agrees to a date with him. “Getty’s fu­ri­ous!” An­disiwe says. “She’s los­ing at a race of two horses and she’s not tak­ing it well.” And it gets worse on Tues­day 21 March when Lun­gelo gives her the cold shoul­der at work. “She thinks that Lun­gelo is liv­ing her life. He’s the new of­fice favourite and he’s dat­ing her ex. It’s not fair.”

She needs to come up with a plan fast and Getty does on Tues­day 21 March. But it’s a pretty des­per­ate one that she hopes will change things be­tween Lun­gelo and Wandile and also give her a shot with him: Getty re­veals Wandile’s trans­gen­der se­cret. Her plan seems to work be­cause the next day, on Wed­nes­day 22 March, a fu­ri­ous Lun­gelo ends things with Wandile, who started her gen­der re­as­sign­ment process in Au­gust 2016. An­disiwe reck­ons that Getty’s gone too far this time though. “She let her jeal­ousy cloud her judge­ment. It looks like she’s ru­ined a good re­la­tion­ship with a great friend,” she says.


But there’s a snag with Getty’s plan: while Lun­gelo isn’t with Wandi any­more, he’s also not in­ter­ested in Getty. She of­fers him a shoul­der to cry on on Fri­day 24 March but he just pushes her away. An­disiwe ex­plains that her char­ac­ter doesn’t know how to han­dle re­jec­tion and “in­stead of deal­ing with her lone­li­ness, she self- de­structs and ru­ins her re­la­tion­ships and friend­ships”. And she’s tak­ing out her frus­tra­tions on poor Wandile – Getty pub­licly makes fun of Wandi’s sex change on Tues­day 28 March. “Getty is con­vinced that she will still win Lun­gelo over,” An­disiwe ex­plains. “She’ll de­stroy any­one who comes be­tween her and hap­pi­ness.”

Lun­gelo (top) and Wandile are fac­ing Getty’s wrath. Getty gets what she wants, re­gard­less of who gets hurt.
