Rumours fly as Pearl Thusi quits RGB

Rumour has it that Pearl Thusi has quit her job as presenter of SABC's 'The Real Goboza' because she doesn't see eye to eye with her boss.

According to the Sunday Sun, the TV presenter and actress will only be hosting the celebrity gossip show until the end of November, after which she’ll be replaced by ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ host Sinazo Yolwa.

“Highly-placed sources” have reportedly confirmed that there is bad blood between Thusi and the show’s executive producer, Sydney Matlhaku, and claimed that she has been “down-playing their beef, saying she’s leaving because she has a lot on her plate”.

Said one insider: “Sometimes it gets tense when they’re together.”

SABC1 portfolio marketing manager Dichaba Phalatse neither confirmed nor denied the rumour when approached for comment, merely saying: “We’ll inform you should there be any changes in talent from any of the shows.”

Thusi apparently only said “no comment” when asked to confirm her departure.
