Johannesburg- Just days after a violent altercation between Nonhle Ndala, Wendy Parker and Katlego Mohoaduba, last Friday night, M-Net acted swiftly in showing two of the ladies the door.
The three ladies were at Kaya FM studios for a routine interview, when a heated argument spiralled out of control.
This led to Diski Divas' bigwigs taking the decision to give Wendy and Kat the boot from the show.
Now, almost a week later, Kat and Wendy have broken their silence for the first time since the incident, during a one-on-one interview with The Juice.
Both Wendy and Kat have been left shocked and surprised by Mzansi Magic's decision to fire them, while Nonhle seems to have gotten away with a slap on the wrist.
"I don't think M-Net's decision was fair and I'm still waiting for a valid explanation as to why I was fired. All I was told was that Mzansi Magic does not condone violent behaviour, meanwhile the footage shows that I didn't do anything to this woman, she was violent to me. What are you doing about that," said a clearly angry Kat.
Kat added that although she isn't bitter about being fired and wouldn't stay on the show even if it was offered to her, she does not take lightly to some people being "favoured."
She believes that Mzansi Magic failed to live up to their promise of supporting the ladies. "They said that they were our support structure but I feel as if they haven't shown it," Kat explained.
Meanwhile, Wendy says that the 'marching orders' came as a complete surprise to her because after the incident she met with execs, who told her that ultimately the decision to leave would be hers.
"I met with them on Sunday and told them that I couldn't move forward with them, but they told me that the matter will be resolved and that the decision will ultimately be mine," she explained.
Mzansi Magic says that the reason Nonhle was not fired was because it's believed she did not respond with violence. "From our understanding of the events, the altercation between the three cast members resulted in Nonhle Ndala being physically struck and verbally abused by both parties. Ndala did not respond with violence and left the scene of the incident soon thereafter," read a statement.
Despite all the drama and tension that plagued the show, both ladies expressed their gratitude for the opportunity.
