Kuli Roberts speaks about her role as the s.e.x.y cougar in #TheQueen and her health scare

Sassy TV and radio personality Kuli Roberts (37) is nailing the role of s.e.x.y cougar Mildred in Mzansi Magic telenovela The Queen. The mother of 25-year-old Warona is caught pants down with her daughter’s boyfriend, Thato. But even though they’ve been caught, she continues with the affair.

Kuli is enjoying playing Mildred. “I love her. She has a carefree attitude.”

The 41-year-old character – with impeccable taste and a love for the finer things in life – loves looking good and never lets a fashion fad pass her by.

“Mildred has an Instagram account which she updates regularly showing off her collection of handbags, stilettos and cars. When she enters a room, she doesn’t go unnoticed,” Kuli says.

Kuli, who’s mom to India (25) and Leaun (23), says she enjoys acting “because I get to be someone else”.

The lockdown hasn’t had a big impact on her life, the actress tells us, other than taking extra health measures like wearing a mask and sanitising.

“Lockdown is like my life, I’m always home when not working,” she says.

Kuli recently had a health scare when she felt something like a lump in her breast, but she was quickly cleared by a health professional.

“I had a b00b scare. I thought it was a lump and so I dragged my friend Doreen Morris to an oncologist,” she says.

But all is well, and she can’t wait for more acting roles.
