Khanyi Mbau: I was as good as satanic

Cape Town - "I'm sorry," says Khanyi Mbau.

In an interview with YOU Magazine, the troubled socialite opens up about how her sister rescued her from the "evil period" in her life.

Thandeka Mcunu, Khanyi's 27-year-old sister, "dropped everything" to rescue Khanyi who was on the brink of a breakdown after her relationship with 53-year-old businessman Theunis Crous ended.

Khanyi says: "I had a moment of awakening after I'd broken up with Theunis. I found one of my old scripts from Muvhango (the soapie she once starred in) and just broke down. It dawned on me I was as good as satanic.

"I would like to apologise to my family and friends. I've lost so many people because of the person I was."

Thandeka is Khanyi's manager and says she is very protective of her sister. The pair now co-own a management company.

The Lamborghini-loving socialite was recently involved in a nude photo scandal which saw provocative images of her distributed online.

    Khanyi just go and hang, disgusting gold digger. look what you have done to that old rag poor Mthembu. You are correct that you are satanic. Your evil ways blew his millions and today both of you look like some comic figures. Not to mention Crous with his swollen feet, what were you interested in that old bag? Satan works in mysterious ways. Imagine if you had guided that fool Mthembu to buy and build a dream house etc, no it would not have worked he was just too dumb too.

      @George you're are an angry little old fellow aren't you? Leave Khanyi to live her life now, everyone one makes mistakes.

  • George - 2011-11-04 08:28

    Khanyi look straight into your eyes and those of your sister and spot the difference. Your sister looks clean, innocent, homely and sort of pure in soul. on the contrary your eyes are dark, gloomy, evil, tired and lifeless. Actually your older sister looks far younger than you. Life is a mystery.

    Why are you people so harsh on Khanyi? I love her and she lives life to the full and maybe that's why you don't like her, because she has a full life!!!

    People often compalin that they are tried by the media, well if you live your life in the media, then being tried by the media is part of your lifestyle.

  • Mandisa - 2012-04-08 22:54

    Its good that she is sorry,but the life she leaved was also a lesson to many others that materials things don't bring happiness,it also opened so many woman's eyes about their rich husbands doings when they are in these business meetings.we can't blame her alone even men themselves and others wished to be with her.cause man are mostly attracted to sluts and I have no idea why.
