'Why men are scared of me'

"How I express love" - Beauty queen joins popular soapie Muvhango, chats to Sowetan about her life

FORMER Miss Teen SA Phuti Khomo believes men find her intimidating.

The beauty has joined the cast of popular soapie Muvhango.

Khomo, who won Miss Teen South Africa in 2002, spoke to Sowetan in between television shoots for the soapie.

She started shooting for her Muvhango role only last week, playing the part of a wife to one of the major characters in the soapie.

According to a source close to the production, who did not want their name revealed, Khomo's role is set to grow in stature. Khomo also gave Sowetan a peep into her love life.

"Well, I am not married and I am not even thinking about it. The subject has not crossed my mind yet because I am very preoccupied," she says.

"But also I think black guys find me intimidating. They are not used to someone who knows what they want when it comes to love.

"Example, if I am watching a movie with my partner I want to bite your ear, and it overwhelms our brothers, as they are not used to that. I am actually crazy when it comes to my expression of love."

But is she in a relationship?

"Hmmm ... okay. I have someone I am seeing right now. I think he is getting used to the fact that this girl is like this when it comes to my extrovert and crazy expression of love.

"As for marriage, no.

"Maybe it will happen soon. I just do not know," she said.

Khomo is one of a very few crop of former Miss Teens, who have made a success of themselves after winning the title, having been an actress on such shows as Egoli, Generations,, Rhythm City and a presenter on SABC1.

She is also used by Capitec Bank in their advertisements and recently completed shooting an advert for loans.

"I have also been on YFM as a presenter for close to three years. I have been successful because when I won the Miss Teen title I had a plan that I followed through, leading me to the kind of success that I am enjoying currently," said Khomo.

"Others were easily influenced and put off their plans because as Miss Teen there is so much happening in your life and people keep on telling you, you do this or that.

"That sometimes takes you off track.

"With me, I know when to take on a job, and when to leave - especially if the profile of that job does not fit."

Dzel I love stalkers actually they give me this rush. When I think stalkers I imagine whips, handcufs, being made to bend over

LOL ... those are sex freaks man, not stalkers ... i once decided to meet this complete stranger because at the time I was getting a lot of calls from people I don’t know. Big mistake that turned out to be; first she would not take rejection lightly, I got sworn at, told I think I’m all that and that I think the sun set in my ...

Just imagine, she called me, I agreed to meet mainly to find out where she got my numbers from and she turned all psycho on me. Promptly changed my numbers and went underground but soon the calls started coming again, one woman even told me she got my numbers from Lonely Hearts in the Daily Sun or some ish like that, hunted down the copy and there was nothing there. It’s not fun when you are supposed to be banging people you’ve never met before, can get you into trouble. I’ve had my share of loonies, no thank you.

It's the game of love my brother, not for the faint hearted. If you decide to be out there, you'd better have the heart of steel. Ignoring someone can send mixed messages as well.

I'm too aware of other people's emotions and it is difficult to hurt someone and face them. I remember with my varsity sweetheart it took a love bite to get me off the hook, I didn't plan for it but it did the trick. Call me a coward but I've always found it difficult to call it quits.

Just practice, if you have a sister she could help. Women are very eloquent when it comes to dumping someone. They never leave you hanging unless they want something from you.

oh, really! i think you are losing it from now. why dont you just move on the minute you notice you are/have been dumped? or are hoping for him to come rephrase? damN!

If I try to recall not long ago this ugly girl's BEE boyfriend took away his Merc and she was Johnie Walker. And her mother gave her a very old Sentra to drive.

I know girls like you, full of drama, and it is always about them. They want to be spoiled and treated like Queens etc but not i a single day she can b*uy the boyfriend a chappies that worth 10c let alone a taking him out.
