The Star Early Edition

Whole new ball game for former WAGS


THE SECOND season of the controvers­ial Diski Divas returns with some old and new faces. Teko Modise’s ex-wife, Felicia Modise, returns in this new season along with Kgomotso Machete, who has a child with Chippa United’s Thamsanqa Sangweni.

The new faces include Chippa United star Lihle Mbuyiselo Sambu’s baby mama, Kia Ntshole, Kaizer Chiefs legend Nkosinathi Nhleko’s ex, Thandeka Nhleko, and Big Brother: Double Trouble runner-up, Blue Mbombo, who is the former fiancee of Black Aces player, Okonkwo Onyekachi.

Mbombo is happy to return to the show after a brief stint on the last season.

“I was in the first season of the show at a later stage. When Katlego Mohoaduba and Wendy Parker were fired for the fight that took place at Kaya FM studios, I was called in as the replacemen­t. Obviously, there was so much happening in my life at the time because I was fresh out of Big Brother. I felt as if I had been squeezed in and had no chance to show the real me. So when they approached me to be part of it this time around, I took it because it is a chance for me to tell my story,” she said.

This season gives her ample time to clear up the misconcept­ions that the media and fans have been making about her.

“A lot of people see me and assume that I am a certain person who I am not. I entered Big Brother to clear that up, but people are still confused. Right now I want to show my hustle and all the things that I am busy with. I also want to show where I am from. I have friends in Joburg who have never been where I am from,” she said.

“I grew up in a shack, but I knew how to take care of myself. People used to look at me because I looked nice and they would assume that I am from a rich family. When they found out that I wasn’t from a rich family they would write stories that I was ashamed of where I came from, which was all untrue,” she continued.

While the show appears to attract the spouses of soccer players, in actual fact it is the former spouses who make the cut.

“Felicia Modise was married to Teko Modise and she’s an ex-wife, right? I am an ex-fiancee because I was engaged to a soccer player, Onyekachi Okonkwo. Right now I am dating a rapper, K2, whom I met in the Big Brother house. I don’t know why people are still confused about who I am with. The show was shot after I had broken up with Okonkwo. I think when I was in the house I spoke a lot about him so I think they assumed that I was still with him,” explained Mbombo.

Given that there is always drama among these divas, we wanted to know what Mbombo’s relationsh­ip with her castmates is like.

“I am actually cool with all of the girls, but obviously there are some difference­s. Some girls are fake. They came on the show with characters from other reality shows. Other than that, we are fine. I am learning a lot from the girls,” she claimed.

But what if a fight broke out like it did last time?

“I am ready for such things, but I know with my personalit­y I will not attract any physical fights. I think Nonhle is used to those things because she had been confronted countless times before. As for me, if we disagree on something, I prefer that we just talk like normal people,” she said.

season 2 starts Wednesday, 8pm, on Mzansi Magic (Dstv channel 161).
