- The battle between Leshole and Pretty has been misinterpreted
- Lerato stood up for her character and reminded viewers who started the drama
- It seems that we have all forgotten how Leshole hurt Pretty
If you are a soapie lover then you will definitely be in on the Pretty and Leshole drama. Skeem Saam has given us one of Mzansi’s biggest soapie rivalries this year, but it seems that we may have gotten it all wrong.
Actress Lerato Marabe, who plays Pretty, told TshisaLIVE that people have gotten it all wrong. The way we have perceived their relationship is not how it is at all.
Briefly.co.za learnt that people are so invested in the drama that Lerato has even been stopped in public and lecture on the way she treats Leshole.
Lerato opened up and stated that Pretty is just simply hurt by Leshole, ‘she doesn't hate him’.
When someone puts up their walls, like Pretty has, the way they treat the one who hurt them can be quite harsh.
The actress defended her character by stating that people are gunning the wrong person. Leshole is actually the on at fault, not Pretty.
“People always think that Pretty was the one that is rude to him but they don't know that in the beginning he hurt her. He pretended to be Emkay online knowing Pretty had a crush on Emkay. Pretty was resentful but he got over it pretty quickly. Pretty holds onto the grudge and has been nasty towards him since," said Lerato.
Whether or not Pretty and Leshole will put the past behind them, we do not know. However, in real life, Lerato and Thabo have a fantastic working relation and do not let their characters drama effect their friendship.
So, before you turn to lecture poor Lerato again, remember that Thabo is probably the one who actually deserves a talking to.
