Annie Mthembu dumps LaConco

Mzansi entrepreneur Annie Mthembu cancelled her friendship with Nonkanyiso “LaConco” Conco and maintained her reasoning on part two of the Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD) reunion which aired on Showmax on Friday 13 May.

Annie Mthembu had been digging into LaConco’s love life since the beginning of the season. Things heated up when LaConco, who is the “baby mama” of former President Jacob Zuma, received flowers while at a pool party at Jojo Robinson’s home.

The ladies later dubbed the mystery man as “Petal” who was perceived to be LaConco’s love interest for the season, but Jojo picked up on some lies. This upset Annie because she did not appreciate being lied to. This came up while the ladies were on vacation at Sun City. Annie addressed LaConco and then all the ladies spoke about the lies and decided they would cut ties with her if she did not come clean.

LaConco chose not to give the ladies any answers and the season ended on this note. At the reunion, LaConco asked Annie if she would ever get to a point where she gives her a chance to speak about things when she is ready. Annie said that she was uncomfortable around LaConco because of her lies.

I think the difference between Nonku’s situation and your situation is that you have outright lied to all of us. When I initially met you and I saw you on TV I thought you were so charismatic, so funny, I thought you had such a presence and I really enjoyed you. You know? But it kind of got tainted for me when you started like lying about things and whatever it was because I want to like you but I don’t feel comfortable,” said Annie.

So, Annie maintained that she has cut LaConco off.

LaConco then asks Annie why she is cutting her off. The entrepreneur responded saying that she cannot trust her and she does not want that around her.

“I cut you because I feel like I have been lied to by you, I don’t feel like I can trust you and I don’t want to have someone around me that I feel that way about,” she responded.

Annie went on to say that it was more than just Petal, but the house and the cars as well. LaConco revealed that her on-screen “home” is actually a rental.

“There is a lot happening that I don’t feel like you are being honest about. Even now, you know and you… the house, the cars, Petal. We’ve been misled,” she said.
