The screen queens

The T.V landscape has been littered with media beauty after media beauty who have amazed us with their charisma, charm, and chutzpah.

They have been wonderful captains of their industry drawing us in and making the news more appealing to watch. They make even listening to news about terrible tax hikes more bearable.

But while many of these female stars on our screens may be excelling in their chosen professions their love lives tell a different story.

In this article, we take a look at some of the troubled relationships that some of these Kenyan screen queens have had. They are:

Esther Arunga

Her troubles started/continued after she met one Quincy Timberlake. During this period the one-time soft-spoken and very pretty anchor joined the aptly named “Finger of God” church led by a certain brother Hellon.

The scandals that erupted after she joined the church are the stuff of legend. She sued her parents, she quit her job, she married the very shady Quincy and then they went to live in Australia.

Last we heard of the couple, they had a lost one of their children after Quincy threw the child on the wall trying to cure him(?).

Lillian Muli

Lillian was destined to live the happily ever after life when she married Moses Kanene in September 2009. The wedding was a dream, with the venue being the legendary golf course Windsor Golf and Country Club in Ridgeways.

But that and the son they got together would most likely be the highlight of their short marriage after she filed for divorce on January 7, 2016.

Her reasons for the divorce were shocking, to say the least. That Kanene was adulterous, violent and quick to temper.

But Lillian is not one to brood over her misfortunes. This year she was able to get a new-born son called Liam with her new catch and Mr. Moneybags Jared Nevaton.

Doreen Gatwiri

The very attractive yellow yellow Kiswahili news presenter had one of the most scandalous break-ups this year. The former Ebru T.V presenter quit her anchoring job last year in a huff and many wondered what was up.

But she had got what many slay queens in Kenya would call the ultimate catch? Super-wealthy and super attractive Mwingi Central MP Gideon Mulyungi. She even showed off his huge pink mansion when things between the two were going well.

But things fell apart earlier this year when she alleged on her social media pages that the MP was physically abusive towards her. The MP was subsequently arrested.

She added that she reported previous incidents to police and sought medical attention from hospitals away from home for fear he would follow her. Now the two are not together she has started working again on Citizen television.
Betty Kyallo

She got married to colleague Dennis Okari in a much-publicized wedding in late 2015 at Marula Manor. The wedding capped a long and drawn out six-year affair.

But things were not to last in matrimonial bliss as a certain flashy governor also had a place in Betty’s heart. This and allegations that Dennis was also cheating made the marriage last less than one year!

Jacque Maribe

She is the flavour of the month and not in a good way after the death of Monica Kimani last month. The investigations that have ensued have put Jacque and her fiance Joe Irungu in the spotlight as the prime suspects.

Jacque had already been linked with Dennis Itumbi and Eric Omondi with claims that the latter was her baby-daddy. Now, with her latest catch, she is embroiled in a murder investigation that might derail the rest of her life.

Grace Msalame

Grace always has a smile on her face but one thing that she might look back on without smiling is her relationship with Paul Ndichu.

The relationship produced a set of twins but it still wasn’t enough to keep the two together.
