Where did it go wrong?

The disgraced former Kaya FM radio presenter has revealed to fellow former Idols judge and now podcast host Gareth Cliff what led to the ending of her and Somizi’s friendship.

The cause according to Unathi as reported in Zalebs is that the Living the Dream star chose to defend her now ex-husband Thomas Msengane during her bitter divorce.

This was done through comments that Somizi would make when they were still both on the show before their respective exists. The public was still blind to this even though Unathi was obviously absent from Somizi’s wedding. Unathi also revealed information that she was urged by her father not to attend the wedding.

The friendship was then further strained when the abuse allegations against Somizi by his now-strained husband Mohale Motaung were made public and Unathi was forced to publicly cancel her then former friend in public.

The public was then made to acknowledge that the friendship between the two was no longer the goals that everyone thought it was. It then became a question of when will Unathi dish the dirt on what really happened between them.

This was displayed during an episode of the third season of Living The Dream where Somizi was filmed dishing the dirt to vocalist and now bff Vusi Nova about the demise of a certain friendship and how he never expected the betrayal to come from that friend.

Somizi was indeed referring to Unathi as he did reveal that he and this friend shared the same workplace. The ending of both their contracts led to them splitting ways even though Somizi was re-instated on the show and Unathi faced further embarrassment after a controversial exit from Kaya FM.
