Joostgate Girl
Everyone was left wondering who the girl in the pink thong was in the Joostgate video. Well, wonder no more! Her name is Marilize van Emmenis, and it was her ex-boyfriend's idea to make the video.

In the new issue of heat, Marilize, the girl in the now infamous Joostgate video, reveals how former Springbok captain Joost van der Westhuizen has been lying about his appearance in the video. 

In an exclusive interview with heat, Marilize provides a riveting, detailed first hand account over six pages of the times she's met Joost. According to Marilize they snorted CAT together and he joined her and her friends for a dawn party in a Hatfield, Pretoria flat. 

In the story, a variety of pictures provide further proof that it is Marilize with Joost in the original video.

heat also ran important, independent scientific tests to ensure the authenticity of her story. 

Will this make her famous? Will she be the ambassador for condoms? Or child-welfare? Or maybe an anti-drugs campaign? Or will she just fade into oblivion and make B-grade porn?
