Everyone’s talking about this series but can you just jump in at any time? Yes, you can – and here’s how: Season 1 Thursdays SABC3 (*193) 19:30 episodes 4 & 5 Gigi’s (Gabriella Cirillo) ex is murdered in his Bedfordview restaurant, upsetting the criminal apple- cart in dramedy Bedford Wives (2017- current).
Five things to know:
1 Gigi’s boyfriend Costa (Russel Savadier) took over “the business” in episode 1 (24 August) and is still using it as a cover for under-the-table crime.
2 Gigi “managed” the restaurant for her ex Marco (Jonathan Taylor) and might’ve been sleeping with him again.
3 Marco left everything in his will to current wife Despina (Sharon Wagner), freezing out Gigi and George (Blaine Shore), Gigi’s son with Marco.
4 Despina was fixated on being kicked out the Mrs SA contest in episode 2 (31 August) and she didn’t notice Gigi stealing her thunder as the grieving widow in their friend circle.
5 And frenemies Gigi and Despina worked as a team in episode 3 (7 September) when Marco’s criminal contacts demanded “a delivery”.
The Bedford Wives are trying to outdo each other at every turn.
