Outspoken television actress Pearl Thusi on an episode of Podcast and Chill with Mac G spoke about her issues with Bonnie Mbuli.

She expressed her disappointment at Bonnie Mbuli and had this to say:

"Bonnie had a good time with me. I was like girl, you have my number. This is so disappointing like what did I do? All I did was defend my work. You can't say all I have is because of something I can't change and expect me to accept that. That's rude so I'm going to defend my work. I've worked too hard."
