It was even alleged that it was staged for ratings.
Now Wendy and Kat have set the record straight. Speaking to The Citizen, Wendy said: "There was no violence.There was pushing and pointing in faces, and a bit of hair pulling. It was not as violent as the media has made out. No klaps were given out."
She told the paper that Nonhle, who was also involved in the fight, had been taking jabs at her co-stars for a while.
She explained: "The next step would have been to sit down and have a confrontation with Nonhle. Not a physical confrontation, but to sit down and say, ‘you know, you’ve said some things’ and find out where they come from. Unfortunately that meeting never happened. Kaya FM was the only place where we would find her."
According to the paper, Kat requested a one-on-one with Nonhle, but this request was denied.
Wendy said she thinks the producers knew this was a volatile situation. "And they knew in no uncertain terms that Nonhle was being abusive. There was no intention to go in there and attack her. We simply wanted answers."
She apologised for the incident and added: "I don't condone violence." She said to the best of her knowledge, the show's not scripted.
