PARTYING has never been hard for us girls, so when we were invited to a Tropika launch of their new packaging, we put on our glad rags and off we went to Club Inc in Braamfontein.

PARTYING has never been hard for us girls, so when we were invited to a Tropika launch of their new packaging, we put on our glad rags and off we went to Club Inc in Braamfontein.

The theme was Cuban and we were impressed at how celebs followed it.

Yes, yes, you are right, a week after Zanzibar and most of the contestants were still hanging out together.

Previous winner Pam Andrews wore a stunning black dress that showed off her ever-exposed cleavage.

She was there with her young-looking husband, Cedric, who had his hand under her dress in the smoking section, to our horror.

Speedy looked very different. All he sported on the island was hip-hop gear but at the launch, he and Stoan looked glam in Carducci suits.

Models wearing colourful branded gear and floral necklaces greeted us with Tropika cocktails.

The vivacious and engaged Bianca le Grange was seen pulling and enticing her husband-to-be, Solomon Manana, in and out of VIP rooms when not posing and kissing the poor man so much that he looked like he needed a breather. But they make a wonderful couple.

Still on couples, Bianca's ex, Loyiso Bala, arrived in a vile orange jacket with an equally bright-looking current girlfriend, who is Bianca's best friend - strange.

I guess it's not as odd as Kelly Khumalo, who first dated Speedy and is now dating his lesser-known cousin Jub Jub.

Hendrik Cronjé was there and we must admit that his English has improved since the island sojourn. And he is so beautiful. Most of the girls where throwing themselves at the reserved one. We wondered where his Sashi Naidoo was.

A great evening with loads to eat and drink. We hope we get more free Tropika in the near future.

We love the new packaging, guys, but it must be said that the party was too hot for this time of the year. Throw another.

Oh, Hlomla Dandala is well and looking so handsome. He was there sans wifey and was overheard telling folks not to get drunk as the night was young.

Wise words.

Khanyi Mbau arrived in a copper dress dripping with what looked like jewellery from a lucky packet.

She was all alone and we have yet to see any of the men people claim she is dating.

It was great to see Claire Mawisa looking so good in a purple dress. Sisi omdala, what's up? You were hanging out with designer Thula Sindi all night so tell us if he is the reason you look so good or is it because you have found a decent man?

l We girls are very worried. A few celebrities told us Gareth Cliff sends them very interesting text messages and we want to know why we have not received any?

Gareth, we love your show. Now tell us more about the famous text messages everyone is talking about. Do tell us before we tell you.

l Since the search is on for the new Face of Africa we want to know who the current Face is as clearly more funds needs to be put into people's marketing budgets.

Is Nombulelo Mazibuko still the face?
