Sorry all! I had started this post but instead of saving it when I was halfway done I clicked PUBLISH and it was published, I then took it down for completion; mea culpa!
Anyway, have you ever had one of those friends where this is always something that prevents them from doing stuff for you, they always have an excuse of sorts and since they are doing you a favour you can't come down hard on them but you have to grin and bear it?
I have such a pal and I'm so happy that very soon I will be able to give them the boot! Yes you can call me petty but I can give a list of grievances. How can someone always volunteer to take you somewhere and consistently come late and pretend to be apologetic. I was once offered a ride to the 'ville only to be picked 5 hours late and to be brought back a day later than planned. And to make things worse whenever I offer advice about the things that make them late, I am listened to and acknowledged but the same thing happens the next time we are supposed to meet, whether it is to hang out or for something serious things go back to how they were with an excuse to go with it. Anyway call me ungrateful but that is why I am staking out my independance bit by bit, because honestly sometimes the person you can best rely on is yourself!
Anyway enough of that. I was reading the Pulse today and I was looking at today's snippet on celeb relationships. I do think that something is missing in some of these accounts.
Sheila Mwanyigah and Simon Rushton
The singer-cum radio presenter parted ways with her fiance Simon Rushton in 2005 on the eve of their wedding. The singer was waxing lyrical about Simon and even planned for a wedding. He had even bought her an engagement ring—16-rubies surrounding a single diamond set on platinum. The ring was said to be an antique that has been passed down from one generation to the other and was worth a lifetime. Everything looked fine until Sheila issued a press release cancelling the wedding. The statement said that the couple was still in love, but due to personal reasons they had decided to postpone the wedding. (Why do I have the feeling that the postponment was not a mutual decision?)
"Marriage is a difficult thing," Sheila was quoted as saying. She spent the big day with friends and family. A few weeks later, she candidly said that she was happy with Simon at the beginning of their romance but as the wedding day approached, she realised that something was wrong and decided to step back. ( I guess that was the same time she hooked up with another baller)
Soon after, Sheila hooked up with singer Prezzo. The relationship, however, did not last long. (Why am I not shocked?)
Big Kev and Elizabeth Mukami
Burly emcee Big Kev has also seen one of the most painful splits in the celeb circles. The amiable rapper was romantically involved with Elizabeth who fully took advantage of his love. Kev was part of a love triangle and his girl was cheating on him with a rich, old man. (Seems rich and old always beats young and virile?) The truth came out when Liz claimed that she was accompanying her dad for medical attention in South Africa. A few days later a friend in SA called Kev, saying that Liz was being rather intimate with an elderly man. The same evening another elderly man told a dejected Kev to take it easy, since Liz had been going out with the said man for a long time. (Take it easy young lad, you still have your whole life ahead of you; lol!)
Liz spent two weeks in SA and when she came back Kev reluctantly met her at the airport. Already in an emotional turmoil, Kev told her to sleep on the couch and declined the gifts she had bought him. The next day he caught Liz telling her friends how he easily swallowed her lies and that things were cool. When he confronted her, Liz ran to his family members claiming that Kev wanted her out. But the die was cast and he flew to Dubai for a week to cool his nerves, leaving Liz at his digs.( This dude is so nice, I would have tossed her ass out there and then!) A week later, he returned and told her to pack her bags and leave.
Liz had been hoodwinking Kev all along — she had claimed to be a student of USIU-A but the truth was she was a secondary school drop-out, who was not living at State House Road as she had led him to believe, but in Buru Buru Estate.(So does that mean he never used to visit her? Background checks are a must, Nai is a small town so it isn't too hard!) To add insult to injury, the girl was a single mother of an almost a five year-old child. (This chic must be given full marks for being a player, and to think people say that chics cant play the game!)
Tedd Josiah and Muthoni Bwika
Veteran producer Tedd Josiah has also suffered a relationship bust in the past. The producer was at one time involved with the voluptuous Muthoni Bwika. It is rumoured that Tedd was so smitten that when they parted ways he attempted suicide. (Bitchass punk! He needs to enroll in the Movie Buff relationsip school - always make sure the other person loves you more than you love them, contact her for the rest of the lesson)
Debra Sanaipei and Sir Henry
Another break up that was hushed in the celeb circles was that of Debra Sanaipei and a city lawyer, Sir Henry. The couple had a steamy relationship that did not last long. The cause of the split is unknown.
The only reason I pasted this is that I do know that Sir is an honarary title in Britain but to have it as a first name is something in it's own world! I can only imagine his childhood pain. I wonder if he owns Sir Henry's Menswear store? Anyway I won't be so hard on him since I make everyone refer to me as Lord Acolyte.

This dude here ( A TZ blogger if the swa sanifu is anything to go by), was jacking content from black entertainment blogs, but seems someone out there noticed. Ndugu, tafadhali; if you have nothing to blog about then you are better off saying nothing as opposed to jacking people's material without mention.
