Schmooze news for you

H Phoshozwayo went to the launch of Prokelly Entertainment recently and maybe the reason behind the bad production was because the diva had not yet been paid. How do you owe an artist R200000 and then tell promoters she is fully-booked when she's available?

Her management deserves to be sued.

And the nerve - Sarah Shongwe has been calling Kelly's mother! Yo. If I remember correctly Mshoza left because of something of that sort, so go ahead girl. You have shown enough skin and you deserve even more than that R200000. Now that you're engaged, are you going to change your stage act?

H Think of Dr Mageu 10 years ago. Some things should just be left alone. Can you imagine how his fans feel right now? Has it become that difficult to earn a living in the music industry, and can it really be so unforgiving?

H Speaking of an unforgiving industry ... I heard that Phat Joe is down and out, and he's driving a Ford. I wonder how true that is. Somebody please SMS me.

H I saw the movie Catch a Fire, and Bonnie Henna is just divine. She and her watchdog Sisanda Henna were there. It's actually quite hard to believe those two actually got married. They have grown so much.

H No matter how hard SABC3 tries to reinvent Brian Ndevu, it is just not winning. He is so dead. Can it not find a more interesting presenter to do the links? He makes you want to switch channels. Come on, liven up.

H I bumped into KB Motsilenyana at OR Tambo Airport moving with little Terry, her son, and the nanny. I wonder how it feels to be a nanny to a celebrity child.

You get the benefit of travelling with the stars and the kids. You get to meet or see the stars in person. I wonder where they were going? I must say KB is looking very good.

H Y-Mag should fire its make-up artist, stylist and cameraman. I had a look at the latest issue and it looks like a cheap version of a cheap magazine. No, it actually looks like a new magazine compiled by amateur writers and volunteers who want training.

H I've been seeing Iko Mash on television lately and I must say I find him interesting to watch. However, I couldn't get the same response from a lot of people.

Apparently he is boring, smiles a fake smile all the time, is not spontaneous and hana hana hana. I wonder how his or her co-presenter Chaos feels.

I'd love to see the two doing a show together. It would even be more interesting.

H Is Khanyi Mbau-Mthembu ever going to grace our television sets again? The way I see it her career as an actress is long over, just like the one hit-wonder babe Uyanda Mbuli's. Almost famous for nothing.

H Since the SABC is losing prominent faces to CNBC Africa, it's now going to have to spend a lot of money again marketing new faces.

After all that publicity it did with Lerato Mbele: billboards, radio ads ... Poof! Off she goes to a rival station, and even better, an hour-long show, five days a week. Stunning.

I also heard Mandlakazi Phahlwa is going to be hosting current affairs, if not a talk show.

HOf course, Brown Dash and Ntando had to leave the stable. The way TS Records is being run, it's as if you're in a tuck shop placing an order for fish and chips.

The fact that they had no written contract is a joke. I heard that not only are the artists leaving, the staff are also on a mission to leave.

HI saw Brown Dash hanging out with DJ Cleo recently, which made me think. Could he be crossing the floor? Good move Ntando and Brown.
