Weekly Roundup: Happiness is… a R1.3 Mil bottle of wine?

  1. Rapulana Seiphemo involved in car accident

The Generations Legacy actor is said to be recovering well from surgery after being involved in a car accident last weekend, according to a family spokesperson, Mduduzi Mkakhane who spoke on the Expresso Morning Show on Wednesday.

Earlier this week, Generations assured fans that Seiphemo’s misfortune would not affect the storyline. You can read more about the accident on Sunday World’s website.

  1. Mbali Mlotshwa set to stir up 7deLaan

The character – described as outgoing, confident, feisty and not afraid to speak her mind – will be at the centre of a love triangle that may result

in the show’s first relationship between a black person and a white person.

I wonder how the 7deLaan fan base will react to this, especially in light of recent racial tensions
