Stand a chance to win a copy of Bitch, Please! I'm Khanyi Mbau

17 August 2012 - 17:40
By Sowetan

Gold digger, chancer, attention whore - Khanyi Mbau has been called all of that and more. While her flamboyant and daring personality have made this actress a darling of the media and a sought-after guest at parties.

Her flashy lifestyle and relationships with older (and often married) men have made her one of the country's most talked about women.

This is the story of a young starlet who let sudden fame go to her head. Her world spirals out of control as fancy cars and rooms full of shoes become more important than self-respect. Khanyi divulges all about her abusive marriage to Mandla Mthembu, the sugar daddy she married at 19. He is also the father of her only child, a daughter named Cannes. She reaches an all-time low when the marriage breaks up and she is left destitute.

Khanyi then gets involved in a sordid affair with a married man, Theunis Crous. Their relationship is splashed in the tabloids as are their often very public fights. It is only when she decides to turn her life around that Khanyi has the courage to break up the affair and face an uncertain future.

In this book the Queen of Bling bares her soul as she tells of some of the hard lessons she learned and of the things she will never do again.
