"Can't we all just get along?" Mzansi entertainment is in no way immune to the grudge, scandal, or all-out brawl. The opposite is true; it serves as a breeding environment for them. The feckless paparazzi make their living off celebrity relationships, and disputes are their bread and butter. Fortunately, business is generally booming.
Bonang Matheba and Lerato Kganyago
Despite the fact that both Lerato Kganyago and Bonang Matheba have categorically denied having any enmity against one another, rumours of a possible rivalry between the two women have lingered for quite some time. As reported, the drama began when Lerato was cast in a television role that Bonang had coveted for a long time.
By posing for pictures in the same place, Queen B and LKG sought to put the public's fears to rest. As a result, Bonang even went so far as to defend Lerato after she was accused of body shaming by True Love, a move that earned her praise from fans. The magazine has made available in their raw form images from Lerato's June 2016 cover, which showed off Lerato's cellulite. As a result of allegations that the firm had airbrushed Lerato's cover to the point that she could no longer be recognised, the company published the photographs.
Pearl Thusi and Bonnie Mbuli
In addition to feuding with stars such as AKA (with whom she is now friends) and Ntsiki Mazwai, the actress Pearl Thusi has been involved in a public spat with another well-known actress, who was the subject of one of her most public confrontations. In a violent Twitter conversation between Bonnie Mbuli and Pearl Thusi that erupted between the two ladies, colorism was the subject of discussion.
Upon hearing some Twitter users claim that Pearl was only well-known because she was a fair-skinned black woman who has no talent, Pearl replied by defending her career. Ariel Winter's defence was that she had worked extremely hard to obtain her current position and that she had also been passed up for some roles because of her skin tone.
Even as a number of celebrities voiced their opinions on the subject, Bonnie was quickly thrust into the limelight for her comments.
