Entrepreneur Nonkanyiso “LaConco” Conco came clean on her relationship with “Petal” on part two of the Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD) season two finale, which aired on Showmax today (13 May).
THE DRAMA AROUND ‘PETAL’
There has always been a keen interest in LaConco’s love life on RHOD because she was previously engaged to former President Jacob Zuma. The pair share a child together. However, She was sent a bouquet of flowers to LaConco while she was at Jojo Robinson’s pool party on an episode of RHOD. The flowers were addressed to “Petal” and so the ladies began referring to him as “Petal.”
However, many were doubtful that “Petal”exists and thought she sent the flowers to herself. “Petal” was painted as LaConco’s love interest as the episodes progressed but Jojo later found some holes in her story. Jojo, who is believed to live on the same estate as “Petal” revealed that he did not own a yacht or own a business like they were told.
So, this drove a wedge between LaConco and the ladies because they felt that they had been lied to.
