Noeleen gets testy with guest on TV

2012-08-08 14:45
Cape Town – Noeleen Maholwana-Sangqu became agitated and very testy during Tuesday's live episode of her talk show Three Talk with Noeleen on SABC3 when an interview with comedian Tats Nkonzo went awry.

The situation suddenly became very testy between Maholwana-Sangqu and the South African comedian Tats Nkonzo when he turned the tables on her and she flat-out refused to play along and answer his question, branding Nkonzo's interview as "impossible".

Tuesday's Three Talk with Noeleen suddenly became heated when what was supposed to be a normal interview became a sparring match between the talk show host and the comedian which threatened to derail the live broadcast.

The trouble started when Maholwana-Sangqu mentioned that Nkonzo grew up in the Eastern Cape province and mentioned in passing that she went to school in East London.

"Which school?" asked Nkonzo innocently. "Cambridge?"

"This is about you darling," retorted a haughty Maholwana-Sangqu. "This is about Tats. It's not about Noeleen" – and then, clearly exasperated to her audience as she lifted her right hand: "What have we ..."

But Nkonzo had smelled blood in the water. "What! Why are you freaking out!? Where are you from?" implored  Nkonzo with a raised voice.

Maholwana-Sangqu relented. "John Bisseker High School in East London."

'Listen, superstar'

"I understand now why you are keeping quiet," said Nkonzo. "No! But it's not about ... I mean, it's not about me. I don't think the audience wants to know about me," retorted Maholwana-Sangqu.

"You do realise you're a celebrity?" continued Nkonzo.

"Okay. Back to you Tats. Back to you Tats. This is getting impossible! I mean, really!" exclaimed an exasperated Maholwana-Sangqu.

"Who else has a talk show now at this time?" asked Nkonzo. "You're like number one. You realise that?"

"Listen, superstar. Do you want this talk show? Do you want to be sitting here?" asked Maholwana-Sangqu.

Then she admonished: "You've got a personality on you! You really do."
