HMzansi has raised the bar for television drama this season. For a drama that started on an off key, making non-Nguni actors speak isiXhosa, with a maid that did a better job in acting than prominent family members, I have to say there's hope for our talented actors like Yule Masiteng, Lucia Mthiyane, Khanyi Mbau, Ferry Jele and Thapelo Mokoena.

HI hear the Big Brother housemates have voted Jeff for eviction and given how predictable the show has been so far, I can safely tell you that come Monday, the house will be Jeff-free and bore-free. That boy gives African authors a bad image.

HWhile I still have the mike I have to send this one to Zola. I'm getting tired of celebrities who neglect their business then turn around and go on some incomprehensible tirade just because they can. If his trousers were tight, his house wouldn't be in such a mess. Thank you.

HI have declared myself a buff for Gareth Cliff's Five FM's Mornings. He has to be the funniest DJ around and while I normally have a beef with whites trying to be politically correct, Cliff couldn't be bothered and that's the real element that sets him apart. I also love the News to Use or Lose component to the show. Brilliant!

HAfter declaring that she has been celibate for as long as she can remember and thus inevitably insinuating that she might be a virgin, Thwasa is said to have retracted her claims on her radio show, saying: "Batho Ba a ngola... I'm not Kelly Khumalo..." Two words for Thwasa: Shut up.

HThe Idols judges are very sweet considering the lack of talent in this country. Some frogs and donkeys we have for singers. But there are however two talent free contestants that I know deserve awards for nerve, and they are both from Johannesburg. So these days instead of cussing the judges I actually feel sorry for them.

H Every wise man changes his mind right? So does every wise woman. I had landed a bad episode of Ugly Betty and today I sing a different tune. I love Ugly Betty but still refuse to believe she's ugly. Vanessa Williams simply does what she was born to do.
