Connie Ferguson

Generations leading Lady Karabo Moroka played by Connie Ferguson, made her grand exit from the South Africa soapie after 16 years of service. She officially left Generations in August and her character will be off-screen in October.

Now, after I had come to terms with Connie’s exit from Generations (As I was a huge fan of both Karabo and Connie). Rumours surfaced that the main reason she left Generations was because her real life husband Shona Ferguson had impregnated her colleague, actress Kagiso Rakosa who plays Sharon on generations and that the couple were divorcing. Sharon is currently pregnant on the soap and I guess someone thought she was also pregnant in reality (which isn’t so).

Kagiso Rakosa

Anyway, I first heard this rumour from a friend who said she had read it on Twitter. I was shocked and denied it on their behalf. My first words were “No ways! Shona would never do that!” I follow both Shona (@Shona_Ferguson) and Connie (@Connie_Ferguson) on Twitter and I knew it wasn’t true because as far as I could tell they seemed happy on Twitter, tweeting and re-tweeting to each other. Now I don’t know about you but if my husband got someone else pregnant, and to make it worse a colleague, I wouldn’t be in speaking terms with them (Just saying…).    

Shona Ferguson

Yesterday Shona released a statement on his official website to clarify things once and for all.

Dear All

 An e-mail has been circulating with claims that my wife and I are devorcing because I made a colleague of hers pregnant. We heard about this a while back and laughed it off and chose to ignore it. For whatever reason this is not going away, so we have decided to set the record straight.

I, Shona Ferguson, do not know Kagiso Rakosa (Sharon on Generations) personally. She worked with my wife Connie and that’s as far as I know her.

Sharon the character on Generations is pregnant with Samuel’s child, but Kagiso the actress is not pregnant in real life. I believe she sent out a statement confirming this.

Incidentally I spoke to her for the first time at Connie’s farewell party at Generations on Friday the 3rd of September. My first words were “hey kid, I hear you are pregnant with my child”. We all saw it for the silly joke that it is and burst out laughing.

So to answer the burning question, no my wife and I are not devorcing. In fact, we have never been happier. We pray and hope that Kagiso stays strong through this. As we all know, in this business sometimes the cookie doesn’t always crumble the way we want it to.

On the up side, Scandal and Generations ratings are shooting up because of this. I guess we should consider invoicing the production houses for our roles in “THIS SOAPIE”!

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

So there you have it! They are NOT divorcing! Shona did NOT impregnate Kagiso and Kagiso is ONLY pregnant in the soapie!

I hope everyone can move on from here just as the couple have and stop spreading malicious rumours about happy couples…(Word of advice: GO GET YOUR OWN #enuffsaid).

    I knew that the rumours arent true  Connie and Shona are cool together

  • Sphiwe

    THE IS A LOT we wont understand about celebraties. Who knows maybe these rumours are true or someone is just trying to mess their lives and mess with our heads.  So it’s really hard for me to believe this  whether its true or not .
