Noeleen gets testy with guest on TV

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."

    noeleen's full of hot air

      koo.doyle - 2012-08-09 15:54

      Shoo I'm surprised at the mean and spiteful comments. No one knows what went on in her personal life, or why she's gained weight. Show a little compassion.

      Maybe, but having had the honour of being a part of her crew for 3 months at Urban Brew, I wish you could see the hard work and countless hours spent behind the scenes to entertain you. No matter what goes on in Noeleen's life, she has to entertain. Have some compassion - she is really good at what she does. Wish you could see Joanne her producer, now there's a real diva :P

      She's full of something alright, and it's overflowing at the seams...

  • anton.behrens - 2012-08-08 15:22

    The comedian sounds like an arse!

  • vanetia.mentor - 2012-08-08 15:28

  • firhaat.abrahams - 2012-08-08 15:44

    This story is an anti-climax, I thought he was calling her racist or something.

    Strangely I didn't notice anything wayward from the interview except for Tats to poke fun of Noleen in a comic-style manner.Overall a good show.What is news about an old rich and famous person passing Matric late in life?

      sandra.j.rennie - 2012-08-09 23:44

      Lizwip I must say that I found passing Matric at that age is fantasic. I was so moved by the tenacity of the person. Brilliant ! As for the rest I always used to watch Noleen on the later slot, but it too early for me now as I am still at work. I really like her, maybe the comedian was just making fun although I must admit I didn't see the show.

      riaan.mostert.58 - 2012-08-09 16:50

      thumbs down = Luvo is another bleck with a chip on his shoulder.

  • thadelphukem.completely - 2012-08-08 16:03

    Noeleen has an inflated opinion of herself and its about time someone brought her down to earth... She is truly one of the most pathetic and annoying tv personalities in the history of television... Sad but true!!!

      roy.wadhams.1 - 2012-08-08 16:51

      Well said.Wonder what type of "salary" she gets for putting on such lousy shows?

  • DibyDineo - 2012-08-08 16:11

  • rikhoula.joy - 2012-08-08 16:19

  • roy.wadhams.1 - 2012-08-08 16:47

    Noeleen has a very high opinion of herself and thinks she is Oprah. She/SABC should stop copying programs from overseas or they to useless to come up with their own ideas?

  • magwaitlouray - 2012-08-08 17:03

    I watched the show and I couldn't see what u r talking about.I think u r blowing it out of proportion.U r making this big and it is nothing really. I suggest u find something better to talk about.

      May be you need to attend body language course to understand some of this communication dynamics

  • janebraker - 2012-08-08 19:30

    You guys demanding the video are pretty naiive. The TV station won't just hand that over. And it's not on youtube.

  • bless.boswell - 2012-08-08 22:10

    Leave Noeleen alone - she's a fabulous gal. Her butt has nothing to do with you - it's her butt.

  • pmarthenuissen - 2012-08-09 02:38

    Oh no people.. These comments are insensitive, do consider the children. Thank you.

  • jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-08-09 10:47

    All wannabee Oprahs. Oh! my.

  • Harold Chisimba - 2012-08-09 17:56

    At least Idont watch that invariably boring program.

  • dakey.ras.73 - 2012-08-09 22:23

    No thanks, I have DSTV. Only thing worth watching on 'Aerial TV' is Late Night News with Loyiso.

  • rodgerchendricks - 2012-08-10 16:01

    I feel so sorry for the people that HAVE to watch her crappy show.

  • 1McBird - 2012-08-10 16:11

    Delusions of grandeur(You are not Opra and never will be)...well done Tats. BTW Noleen, you may want to follow the advice of your medical experts.....just sayin

      1McBird - 2012-08-10 16:12

  • Ouklip - 2012-08-10 17:41
