BBAII : The Ultimate Fan Weblog
Eat. Sleep. Breathe Big Brother.

Tashi Tagg catches up with Lerato

From http://tvsa.co.za/

…and Lerato makes mention of a little blog called the Ultimate Fan Weblog! Yay!🙂

On Friday morning I got a fun surprise call from BB Africa2’s Lerato who phoned me up for a chinwag.

When we chatted at the BBA2 finale she said she’d keep in touch and true to her word she updated me on the latest news for us.

We chatted about what she’s up to – at the mo she’s wheeling and dealing in the entertainment world, talking to people about TV and radio projects and she’s in negotiations with a clothing line.

From what I could work out she’s making sure that things are hip and happening around her as much as possible.

Tashi: When you come out of Big Brother – is it possible to sustain yourself financially with what happens afterwards?
Lerato: It is possible – it also depends on who you are and how you handle everything. If you just gonna go out and go back home and go back to your normal existence – if that’s possible – you’re gonna be pretty pooped but I believe all twelve of us should be milking it for what it’s worth right now. Africa’s our oyster and we need to get out there and get everything we’ve ever wanted out of it.

Tashi: In terms of engangements to Max etc – what’s the story?
Lerato: We’re not engaged.

Tashi: Are you still together?
Lerato: Yes.

Tashi: Really? I’m surprised – I never thought he’s right for you.
Lerato: I know you thought that. (laughs) We are still together, ja, and doing quite well.

Tashi: So what’s everyone else up to?
Lerato: I speak to everyone: Richard’s doing Nigerian movies –

Tashi: What? Nigerian porn movies??
Lerato: I dunno – something in Nollywood – he’s doing something there and says he’s been travelling and Offuneka says she’s working on TV stuff.

Tashi: And Richard and his wife – last we heard she’s become his manager.
Lerato: Ja well, you know – every person needs their own thing, I dunno – but they are back together, they’re quite happy, she’s e-mailed me and she’s quite cool with everything.

Justice – I spoke to Justice, I think a week ago – he’s doing his debating thing.

Tashi: (laughs) Just … debating. *picturing him debating morning, noon and night.*
Lerato: Jeff’s fine ‘cos I phoned him to find out how he is with all the stuff that’s going down in Kenya – I was worried about him and he was like: “Oh my gosh you’re the first person from the house to phone to show concern,” so he was really happy about that.

Tashi: Is he fine?
Lerato: Ja he’s fine – he’s working on his new book and says that if things don’t get better soon he’s gonna come this side and I was like, “You can always give me a call and I’ll give you a bunk to sleep on.”

Bertha’s also in South Africa – working on a whole lot of TV and radio stuff and Max is working on his thing – doing a lot of charity things with Aids and kids. We did a lot of that in December when we were in Namibia – we went to an Aids orphanage and spent time with the kids. I think people are taking the initiative to go out there and get what they want.

Tashi: Are you back at work or are you going for it with different things?
Lerato: A bit – I help out where I can when they ask me – some sort of normality is good so once in a while I help out but I’m very busy with meetings and interviews and all sorts of madness.

Tashi: TV-wise – what do you want to do? Talk shows?
Lerato: Yes something where my personality comes out – nothing acting, I’m not into playing a role type thing. I’m on Facebook daily, replying to people who liked me and those who didn’t. I always take time out of the day to reply to fanmail or whatever.

Tashi: People who didn’t like you – was it difficult to deal with that?
Lerato: Not really, like I told them, I respect their opinion and that’s what it is. Initially when you come out it is hard to follow, I was like “okay,” “oh wow” ‘cos people are harsh, they can be really, really harsh but I was just like I roll with the punches – all the negative stuff just made me a stronger person and now some of the people who had negative things to say are being really really nice over e-mail and a chat so it’s been interesting.

Tashi: (laughs) Yes they realise you were in a show and now you’re a real person.
Lerato: There’s an interesting … have you seen the blog Ultimate Fan Weblog? Oh my Gosh – what they do – on a weekly basis I think, someone will write a story about whoever and then people who are diehard fans stay on there commenting and asking questions – I try to go on every day to reply to what people ask me. At the moment there’s a whole debacle about Richard’s comments about Tatiana, it’s just really … (laughs).

Tashi: Is it sort of Perez Hilton type like?
Lerato: It’s like no holds barred and nails come out.

Tashi: Cool I’ll check it out.

Ends

Here it is: BBAfrica 2 Ultimate Fan Weblog. As you can see there are chats with scumbag Richard, horror pics of Richard and Ricki called Richiki, news on Tatiana getting a Best Actress nomination (I can’t work out for what) and there’s a Q&A with Lerato.

    My only comment about the article is the above comments by Tashi about Tati and Richard. Not cool at all. On Richiki well (dont blame her) Haha, just joking.

  2. Nice interview Lerato. Thanks for mentioning us WordPress bloggers. Good luck with everything.
    As for Tashi, isn’t a journalist supposed to be objective and unbiased…(LoL)

    @Robza171,

    I bow in front of you. A whole paragraph on the website. Wow.

    @Jeff Anthony,

    Lerato phoned Jeff in Kenya. I feel so sorry for Jeff. Nobody phoned and asked him if he is ok in Kenya. But we did. On this blog, several times. We are keeping Jeff in our prayers for a safe journey. Jeff, please come to Jozi. Lerato will “couch” you. You can write your book anywhere, any place, but be safe. And if you do come to South Africa, plse do not forget about your
    ma-ma. Bring her with. She was one good lady during those times of your stay in the house. I loved her to death.

    @Lerato,

    Why did you stop blogging on UFW? Please come back. We promise not to fight that much any more. Maybe just a tiny bit.

    Please Lerato.

  4. Tashi tagg is a complete idiot..I said that after reading her blog on th BBA finale! And I say it again..she shouldnt be giving interviews on BBA HMs since she is extremely biased.

    THere must be “some” detachment from your own point of view as an interviewer which she doesnt possess, so I hope she’s just a simple blogger and nothing else!

  5. DAT TASH WOMAN HAS ALWAYS HATED RICHIANA..!!!!!!I WONDER WATS HER PROBLEM..!!!!!!!!!!!!EISH!!!GET A LIFE…SHI T ASS……..LOL!EXACTLY A JOURNALIST IS NOT SUPPOSED 2 BE BIASED..FOGUUU……

  6. Guys, Happy Vallentine to all! Is good we’ve heard about Lerato, and am happy that she is doing fine.
    @ Robza, anything about our Queen? We are missing her so much.
    @Dolphin, could you update us on QUEEN Tati’s web progress? We are starving u know. ONCE AGAIN WISH A WONDERFUL DAY TO ALL OF YOU WITH YOUR VALLENTINES.

  7. “As you can see there are chats with scumbag Richard, horror pics of Richard and Ricki called Richiki”

    O lordi, lordi, but is this Tashi Tagg not one catty woman? Plse help me, she made this comment to whom? Is she really a reporter? Very unprofessional, very prejudiced remarks.

    “news on Tatiana getting a Best Actress nomination (I can’t work out for what)”

    So, Tashi Tagg, which part of the heading did you not understand? Let me give it to you then. Tatiana dos Santos Durao was nominated for a “best actress award” in Angola. And you know what Ms Fanci-Pansi Tagg? Tatiana won that the award. Three times now she took the award in her country. Next time, page through the comments and clicked on the link given to the Luanda Angola Awards before making a statement like this.

    Your interview was with Lerato and you had to comment on her answers given. Why dissing other peeps in the process, even Max? And for your information, it is Paris Hilton, not Perez.

    You are not hot Tashi Tagg. You are suppose to be objective.

  8. HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY LERATO BAABBBYYY !!!

  9. Happy vallentine RATO and all the bloggers.

  10. heheheeh…Tashi Tagg’s done it again. That’s the deal with Tash guys, speaking as one who has followed her blogs since BBA1. She liked Gaetano then, and we would come on her like a ton of bricks but it was cool fun. She did not have a favourite this time from what I could gather, but her pet peeve was clearly Richard. Don’t take these attacks to heart, guys. Hey, if I reacted to the way you peeps were nasty to my girl Mau, I would have planted a virus on this blog ages ago…yesereee! uh huh!

  11. Mwaaaaahhhhh!!!! Lerato…keep on keep keeping on.

    All the best Lol, you will get there…YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO SUCCEED.

    HAPPY VALENTINES DAY.

  12. hey Happy People

    sorry for the slight absence, have been absolutely bombarded by stuff; so much so that i haven’t even had a moment to go get a Valentines day gift for Baaaayyyyyybbbbeee! have to make a plan before he lands this afternoon….;0) Any suggestions?

    but i jus wanna wish you all a SUPER, ROCKSTAR, LOVE-FILLED VALENTINES DAY……& if you’re single, it all good cos this day is a bit over rated…..lol.

    Lotsa Love to all ya’ll…..
    L

  13. It is quite refreshing to read about other housemates. I got fed -up with the concentration on Richard to the detriment of the eleven other housemates. It is nice to hear from Lerato. I want her to have a very large heart and call up Tatiana. Richard’s wife is not one of the housemates.

  14. THANKS FOR COMING BACK RATO HOPE U GET THE BEST FOR YR BAAYYYBBBEE. KEEP COMING TO THE BLOG AT LEAST TWICE A WEEK AND READ WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY.
    ENJOY YOUR VALLENTINE DAY.

  15. LERATO HAPPY VAL to you and Max.

    Suggestion on what to buy him…….how about a KOTA? with all the trimmings HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.

    Enjoy your day with him.

  16. @Tashi

    Tashi:(laughs)Just …debating.*picturing him debating morning,and night.*

    Point of correction.

    For your info Justice is a full time student at the UNIVERSITY OF BOTSWANA,he is right now sitting in a classroom as we speak.

    Please go back to read wordpress where Justice declared that he is doing his final year @ U.B and he will like to continue with his masters.He only do the debate at his spare time, not like you r imagining.

    Please Tashi! this is serious stuff not funny like u imagine.

  17. @ Ntaoleng

    Kota ne………..i think i’ll treat myself to that 2moro, its been 4eva since i had 1 with all the bells & whistles….mmmmmm

  18. HI RATO..ENJOY UR DAY…SORY I CANT POST MY COMMENT WITH NAME…IM BURNED IN THIS FORUM…

  19. NICE ONE LERATO GOOD LUCK

  20. @Anonymous

    MOCATZ – if you can make posts without cursing any body’s parents, using racially offensive slurs and any other extremely offensive language – as well as NOT posting in CAPS all the time – you will get back your name, and all your posts will be shown…..

    Also, it’s BANNED not BURNED – I have reason to believe that you’re a UB student – correct me if wrong – If you are, damn you’re a disgrace to other UB students………

    That’s all….
    Cheers.

  21. “without cursing any body’s parents, using racially offensive slurs and any other extremely offensive language”

    @Robza,

    Thank you.

    @Anonymous,

    See, even if you are coming in with a different id, knows this, Robza does not sleep………

  22. thanx Lerato for coming to say hallo to us! my day yesterday was superb; guys i hope you all enjoyed yourselves.

  23. Why is it always hard for me to post a comment here??? I hope I’m not being censored, Robza coz I’ve never been naughty.

    Lerato, babes, you were the best housemate.

    Great to always hear from you.

    Mad love.

  24. @Lerato
    Hey girl, hope you and Max had a great one yesterday . . . and what is this that I hear ? ? ? that you are not engaged ? ? ? What are you guys waiting for. Is Max chickening out?? If that’s the case, you need to take the initiative and go down on your knees and pop the question!! Max is a fine brother and it could get very easy to snatch him . . . so c’mon . . . tie the knot already!!

    I wish you both the best . . . and don’t listen to Tashi, you and Max are excellent for each other!

  25. We appreciate you sharing this web site post.Many thanks again. Cool.
