Amanda who has been avoiding the spotlight side of the showbiz industry, working and minding her own, has finally spoken out about why she left the hit celebrity gossip show.
In an interview on Metro FM with Thomas and Pearl, Amanda revealed that it had begun to affect her friendships in the industry and didn’t find it worth it anymore.
“I enjoyed the platform, but certain parts of the show had to be spicy and saucy to certain people and I no longer had it in me to do it. I know it was for entertainment but at what cost? It’s not ok, imagine I know you and next week I’m like ‘Yhu, Pearl what were you wearing? And I’m like that’s not me and it doesn’t serve me or my purpose so maybe it’s time I should leave,” she said.
