According to News24, insiders revealed that when the star joined the soapie early this year, producers of the show were hoping she would increase the numbers. Unfortunately the SAFTA Award winning actress didn’t.

Celebrity and entertainment news website Zalebs reported that the producers of Generations: The Legacy just could not find the perfect storyline for her character Okuhle and hence a decision was made to let her go.

According to Sunday Sun, Thuso’s character has been written off from the shows’ storyline as the creatives have deemed the character to have become monotonous and not strong enough for her as an actress who is used to playing characters that challenge her.

The Sunday Sun article reported that: “Things allegedly took a turn when writers didn’t know how to take her character further as the storyline was rumoured to have become monotonous….she’s used to playing stronger characters and this one was too weak.”

“It was a pleasure having Thuso on set. She brought the character to life and ensured Okuhle really crept into the hearts of viewers in a short space and time,” – said Generations publicity manager Gaaratwe Mokhethi who also confirmed the exit of Thuso from the show.

LootLove and rapper Reason are pregnant

TV personality Luthando Shosha, who is better known as LootLove, has announced that she is pregnant with twins. The whole South Africa was shocked as they joined LootLove and Reason in celebrating the good news that they are having twins.

ALSO READ: LootLove Graces The Cover Of ELLE Magazine

LootLove took to Instagram in a lengthy post to announce the pregnancy news, saying: “It’s a phenomenal time to be me. God and my ancestors came together for me and blessed me with something so wonderful! I’m pregnant! I won’t lie! I’m shoooook! Haha!

I always thought I was cool and now to find out that I’m having twins makes me even cooler! I am carrying Hip and Hop. This is the most beautiful time of my life. Most precious. The scariest and the most exciting.

I’m completely vulnerable and sensitive. I’m excited! I’m nervous but all that goes away when I feel weird little “gas bubbles” which I now know are little kicks because I’m carrying life. A reminder of the miracle and wonder that is God.

As “personalities”/“celebrities”, we are selfishly required to share every moment in our lives and when we don’t, we have people around us that we think we can trust, who gladly do it for us whether it hurts/compromises us and those we love or not. We constantly have vultures flying above us ready to share our private lives in the most non-emotional manner ever.
