Betty Kyallo is planning on having her own talk show like that of Oprah Winfrey.
Speaking to The Star, the sexy TV siren revealed that while growing up, Oprah Winfrey was and still is her role model.
“I always wanted to have a talk show like Oprah, but I don’t know if I’m going to give everybody a car. Her difficult childhood story and how she was able to beat the odds and become the top black woman in television inspired me,” she said.
Betty Kyallo, who’s single and working g on packaging herself before she gets married again, admitted that being single is not easy, and she has learnt a lot.
“It’s hard because at times, your child falls sick at night and you only have yourself and you to take the child to the hospital. It’s always better at least if you have somebody at least to help you. It’s not easy but at the same time, we land in different situations in this life. Sometimes you are a single parent, sometimes you might have your husband there, but they don’t help. Maybe they don’t come or you don’t go to see them,” she told The Star.
“So I don’t see that being a single mother is a special thing, it’s like a responsibility because you have to balance between being a mother and a father, which is almost impossible. And if I am a woman, there’s nowhere I am going to fit into a father for my child but it’s doable. Having the right attitude is what we need. Everything you do, you should be able to move mountains.”
With 764k followers on Instagram, many are convinced that she can run for a seat come the next general election. So, is Betty planning to venture into politics?
“It is something that has crossed my mind a number of times, and the thing is we have quite a number of young leaders now who are in Parliament. And I just want to see whether the promises they made to young people, they will deliver or not. I’m really looking at the young politicians, the likes of Babu Owino, Jaguar, and Caleb Hamisi, and I just hope that they can deliver to some extent. If they can, then I will know there’s hope for other people like me, who would want to represent young people or Kenyan women in another platform. It’s not alien to me but I’m waiting to see,” she said.
