LaConco clearly doesn’t like mincing her words. If she has a problem with something, you better believe that she will address it. Well, she might not always say it to your face, but she will get it off her chest one way or another. After the uMemulo (coming of age) ceremony she hosted, the “First Lady” had lunch with her elder sister to reflect on the big day.
She told her about her Real Housewives co-stars and how they behaved during the ceremony. The fact that Ayanda decided not to eat the food she was served seems to have rubbed LaConco up the wrong way. And that made her wonder if she and Ayanda are really friends.
“Ayanda and I’s relationship, I would describe it right now as, I am her friend, but I don’t think that she’s my friend,” she said.
Keep the same energy
LaConco added that she’s visited Ayanda, invited her on dates and has done other things for her but there has not been any reciprocity.
“And I’m not saying that as friends that’s a basic or that’s a standard, it’s a must. I just basically think I’m a friend to her, but she’s not a friend to me.”
The businesswoman also touched on the fact that Nonku didn’t even bother showing up to her event. “The rest of the ladies came, but she sent a WhatsApp to excuse herself.”
This obviously didn’t sit well with LaConco because she supported Nonku’s wine event a few days earlier. All she wanted was for Nonku to keep the same energy!
Fakeness and pretence
What’s even worse is that the WhatsApp message was sent one day before the Umemulo.
“Couldn’t she call or send a gift? We had a celebration,” she told her sister. LaConco then concluded that there’s a lot of pretending and fakeness among the ladies. “Not with all of them, of course. You can cut through the phoniness in some of them,” she said.
“I have seen or have learnt that some individuals are not genuine and they’re not living their truth,” LaConco added. Although that’s been her observation since joining the show, LaConco continued being friendly with her co-stars. After her chat with her sister, she met up with Ayanda for high tea and even went to Annie’s event. Not once did she bring up any of her issues with them.
