The first part of The Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD) season two reunion, is streaming on Showmax, and it’s intense and heated.
Since its first season, the show has captured the hearts of millions of viewers and has become a household name. After a dramatic and fun season two, the ladies got together for a heart to heart reunion and they had no where to hide.
It was evident from the start of this season that there was a rift between LaConco and Thobile “MaKhumalo” Mseleku. We first noticed this, during Thobile’s debut when she made a grand entrance at her event.
Guests were weary of anticipating the arrival of the host because her name was not disclosed. Thobile’s entrance was an anticlimax for LaConco, who said she expected someone influential like Oprah Winfrey to be there. “You know I am expecting some private jets, red carpets, Oprah Winfrey is in Durban or some Beyonce has landed or somebody special, we were invited by Thobile. I have never been bored like this in my life.” she said.
LaConco had been throwing shade at MaKhumalo throughout the season, and they finally confronted each other in the finale and she had nowhere to hide.
Donovan Goliath, who hosted the reunion, delved deeper into their drama and read a tweet from a Twitter user who accused LaConco of hating someone simply because their friends hate them. She has been accused of hating Thobile because she is friends with MaYeni. Donovan asked her if she is inheriting the beef from Mayeni.
“Absolutely not, It has got nothing to do with MaYeni. Thobile and I knew that there was a bridge we had to cross before. Maybe my weakness was when I saw the cameras, I couldn’t quickly just laugh before we crossed that bridge. Maybe that was my weakness and I am sorry for that. So, if she is able to do that, I couldn’t and it looked as if I had beef with her.”
Thobile did not mince her words when she responded to her. She said she does not remember being mean to her, but LaConco kept on pressing her buttons.
“I wouldn’t even say that I was confused, in life there will come a time where you will not be able to hide who you are, and I really never thought that she inherited any beef. It was just her being herself. Until this day I still don’t remember being cold to her. I really feel like she lied to herself until she believed in her own lies,” she said.
Thobile said LaConco has been taking a swipe at her and showing that she hates her. “Her thinking that it’s a bridge we needed to cross honestly she took it too far, I really thinks she was trying to cover whatever attitude she comes to me because she has been insulting me, she has been showing that she hates me, as a result I was very surprised and shocked when she I saw her offering a hug, I was like, I have never seen this type of a devil on earth.”
She said LaConco has been mean to her during her diaries but when she sees her she is not. “No I am being honest, how can you be so mean to me everywhere you can a chance and when you see me for the first time knowing that I have seen everything you have said about me and you give me a hug and call me sweetie.”
She says she doesn’t hate her, but that doesn’t mean she won’t hug her when she sees her. She went on to say that she mentioned that she respected Musa Mseleku and his wife, but MaKhumalo dismissed that statement.
She said if she respected him then, she would be mean to the people who are dear to him. She said she is glad that LaConco was able to show her true colors, and said she should stop faking it because she knows that she hates her.
