From Tanzania’s ‘Bongo Sun’:
Our reporter managed to talk to one of the invitees who said everyone was shocked because they thought the couple could come together. “It was a shock to many of us. At first, we thought it was planned to surprise the guests and that Ricki was perhaps hiding somewhere. But as time went on and on without Ricki showing up, we were disappointed,” said the invitee who did not want to disclose her name.
She added: “When everybody was eager to know the whereabouts of Ricki, someone who was sitting close to Richard came and said she heard Richy saying he was still working to iron out their differences. There are some misunderstandings between the two, I think.”
Some people told The Bongo Sun that they think Ricki is hiding because of she was shy of people following what had happened to them. “Maybe she is too shy to been seen in public with Richard after the unfortunate episode. Let us give the two some time and maybe the shyness will disappear,” said Angel when she was asked to give her opinion about the situation.
Other sources told The Bongo Sun that they have authentic information that Richard was still contacting Tatiana, whom they described as the source of all misunderstandings between Richy and Ricki. “I read this information on one blog which said that Richard has been calling Tatiana and he has done it in several times,” said one source.
He was supported by his friend who said it was true that Richy and Tatti are keeping in touch, though he didn’t want to agree that that was the reason why Ricki is feeling insecure with her marriage.
In another development, Richard has admitted that he sometimes feels ashamed of his actions during the BBA session though he believes that people will forget about it and focus on the present and the future.
Richard said this in an interview with Channel O presenter, Kabelo, who asked him how he feels walking in the streets wearing clothes while people saw him naked for more than three months in the BBA house. “You know, sometimes I feel like I have no underwear. Walking in the streets and everybody says look, that’s him! It’s difficult but I must go on, lets talk about the future!” said Richard in the famous O Boma programme.
In another incident, Richard wanted his fans to take it easy and wait and see instead of asking about how he is going to use the money. “I said already that I’m going to study Film Production, so please take it easy for now,” he said.
Richard who was also answering questions from his fans who were sending live short messages on Channel O said what he knows is that the BBA is over and life has to go on. “I am Richard, I haven’t changed and I’m still the same. I have my dreams and ambitions so life goes on, take it easy,” he said while responding to an SMS which demanded to know if he has changed.
When asked about Tatiana, Richard once again asked his fans to take it easy because he said what he knows is that he is going to live with his wife.
“Take it easy men, I’m going to do what is right and I’m going to live with my wife. Life has to go on and remember the BBA is over now,” responded Richard to a message, which wanted him to make it clear whether he would go to Angola to live with Tatiana.
Richard who became ‘Mr Take it easy’ as he used the words in his every answer wanted his fan, Nicole, from South Africa, to take it easy when she asked him if he will give 20% of the money to Tatiana. “Oh take it easy girl, take it easy. I love you all.” he responded.
