Noeleen: Why she left and what she's doing next

2015-02-19 12:00


Noeleen says she left 3Talk because she has nothing left to give.

Talking to TV with Thinus, Noeleen says it was her decision to leave the show, even though there are rumours that she was pushed because of falling audience numbers.

"After 11 years I sat down in the chair one day and I was doing what I did every day and I thought: "What more can I add?" And I really believe - and I've said this from day one, that talk is very personal, and you've got to add something to it," she says.

"When I entered this arena it was about what am I going to be able to offer? And I just don't think I'm able to offer much more".

So what will she be able to offer now that she's "unemployed"?

"You know, I've been working since I was 16. So can you imagine. I'm 48 now," she says. "For a while I just want to do nothing. I want to wake up in the morning and make my children breakfast, take them to school. I just want me. I just want me time. It sounds very ... but yes, I just want me. I just want to be me".

Well, if you have nothing to do, come swing around Noeleen, we can watch Katch it with Khanyi together?
