Preg­nancy shocker

Ler­ato’s got a bun in the oven and needs her bestie’s help.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - RHYTHM CITY -

Preg­nancy has a way of chang­ing peo­ple, like feisty record la­bel boss Ler­ato (Samkelo Ndlovu). She’s car­ry­ing her se­cret boyfriend Lungile’s (Me­shack Mavuso) baby while his wife Bongi (Thembi Seete) is locked in a men­tal asy­lum. Ler­ato isn’t just scared of peo­ple in the of­fice learn­ing that she’s been sleep­ing with the boss, she’s more wor­ried about Bongi find­ing out that she’s been cheat­ing with Lungile – it will be the sec­ond time af­ter Ler­ato hooked up with Bongi’s dead hubby Doc (Du­misani Mbebe) in 2015. Ler­ato has put her club­bing aside and lunch dates are a thing of the past. Now she’s keep­ing a low pro­file – but that may just draw more attention to her.

DODGE THE BUL­LET

Ler­ato has al­ways been a slave to love, but this time get­ting her san­ity back is the only thing on her mind. But it’s her changed per­son­al­ity that calls out clearly to her friend No­ma­langa (No­ma­langa Shozi) on Wednesday 20 Septem­ber. No­ma­langa drags Ler­ato to lunch kick­ing and scream­ing and de­mands that her friend ’fess up. And it’s a jaw-drop­per! No­ma­langa can’t be­lieve what she’s hear­ing, but she tells Ler­ato that she’s go­ing to help her fig­ure things out, start­ing with mar­ried Lungile. There’s no way that he’s go­ing to aban­don Bongi now that she’s lost the plot – he would look like a mon­ster. No­ma­langa’s fo­cus is help­ing Ler­ato and her un­born baby.

PITY PARTY

With a guilty con­science and her child in mind, Ler­ato takes a huge step on Thurs­day 21 Septem­ber and goes to see Bongi at the asy­lum. Af­ter see­ing the sit­u­a­tion that Bongi is in, Ler­ato wishes that she could take back ev­ery­thing she did with Lungile. She keeps a smile on her face and tries to com­fort Bongi, who’s been locked away since mid July af­ter Lungile drugged her so that he could spend time with Ler­ato. And now, with her hor­mones out of con­trol, Ler­ato blames her­self, think­ing that she did this to Bongi. At the same time, if Lungile is will­ing to do this to his wife, what would he do to Ler­ato if she dou­ble­crossed him?

Ler­ato tries to hide her se­cret. No­ma­langa has no words for her friend.
