Thuli Phongolo got fired from The Wife and the real reason for her exit has been revealed.
This is coming after Phil Mphela announced her departure on the show, but did not say what the reason behind it was.
“The role of Lerato on #TheWifeShowmax, has unexpectedly been written out of the show. Sources claim the decision was made to drop the role due to Phongolo going M.I.A,” reported Phil Mphela.
Confirming the news to various media houses was Stained Glass spokeswoman Nomfundo Zondi, but she said the agreement was mutual, ‘Yes, we can confirm that Thuli Phongolo’s character ends in the episodes airing on Thursday, 13 January 2021. This was by mutual agreement, due to schedule clashes.”
Well, it has been reported that Thuli allegedly got fired because she would give producers a hard time by not showing face during shootings and would sometimes arrive at her own time.
“She gave the production team a hard time. If she was not late for shootings, she would not come at all. This forced producers and writers to make last-minute plans, and that was an inconvenience for them,” a source said.
But her team refuted these claims in a statement sharing the main reason behind her exit.
