Din­tle (Ma­paseka Koe­tle) sends “Un­cle Fred­die” (Charles Baloyi) pack­ing on Wednesday 29 March af­ter he rocks up at the pent­house. And she’s in no mood for tear­ful scenes at his bed­side af­ter she gets a call from the hos­pi­tal. “Fred­die writes Din­tle as his next of kin. At first she’s like, ‘No, no, no!’ The nurses think that Din­tle is very rude to her un­cle,” laughs Ma­paseka. Din­tle doesn’t want some ran­dom homeless man who helped her steal a for­tune from her ex­hus­band Mangi (Kag­iso Modupe) last year hang­ing around. But she changes her tune on Fri­day 31 March af­ter she re­alises that she can take out an in­sur­ance pol­icy on her dy­ing “un­cle”. Now ac­cord­ing to the pol­icy’s terms, Din­tle can only cash in if Un­cle Fred­die sur­vives the next three months…

FAKE IT ’TIL YOU MAKE IT

On Wednesday 5 April, Din­tle smug­gles Fred­die into the pent­house and an odd new fam­ily forms. “When she sees that Fred­die is good with her baby, she is sur­prised and happy,” says Ma­paseka. “She asks him, ‘Do you have kids of your own?’ And they get to know each other. Even though Fred­die doesn’t want to open up about his past, Din­tle opens up about her sit­u­a­tion with Mangi. And once she starts to get close with Fred­die, fans will get to see that Din­tle has a heart. When she loves, she loves. Din­tle doesn’t have a fa­ther fig­ure in her life, she re­ally just needs some­one who will love her and be there for her. Fred­die is the one to do that at the mo­ment.”

She’s still our Din­tle though. “She is glad to have some­one in the house who’s good with the baby, be­cause she is very lazy, she wants to sit down and watch TV,” ad­mits Ma­paseka with a gig­gle. NB! See more on p18.

Sneaky Din­tle can use her “un­cle” to make money.
