Phindile Gwala and Steve Harvey
Bootylicious Muvhango actress Phindile Gwala’s famous “Pakistani” has grabbed the attention of one of America’s A-List celebs.
The latest top celeb to be hooked was US TV personality Steve Harvey, the host of the popular Steve Harvey Show, who was left gobsmacked and drooling after rubbing shoulders with Gwala.
Harvey will be remembered for announcing the incorrect contestant as winner of the Miss Universe 2015 pageant in Las Vegas early this year.
The sexy Gwala, 30, was in Atlanta, Georgia last month as a member of a delegation from North Coast Radio, a Richards Bay-based, KwaZulu-Natal, radio station, as well as officials from the local tourism authority.
The purpose of the visit was to promote the country’s tourism acumen and to get an insight on the latest international trends in the radio industry.
Sources close to the small screen siren, who plays personal assistant Nonny on the SABC2 soapie, revealed that Gwala took the US city by storm.
But according to the mouthpieces, Harvey was not the only one left salivating in her wake.
Our mole at the radio station and Gwala’s colleague on the Muvhango set told Sunday World how the temptress was waxing lyrically about the manner she left Harvey stunned by her curvaceous body.
According to one source said: “She was actually telling everyone who cared to know that Harvey did not mind her becoming his daughter-in-law.
“She said Harvey told her, ‘I wouldn’t mind hooking you up with my son’.”
Another source said so serious was Harvey, that he even sent the radio station manager an e-mail telling them that he meant what he said.
“It’s a case of wait and see what Harvey and his son will do next. The next few days and weeks could change her life completely,” our mole said.
The flirtatious thespian from Eshowe, KwaZulu-Natal, is notorious for posting her revealing pictures on social media. When contacted this week, Gwala was reluctant to share details of her trip.
“Please send me questions on e-mail,” she said.
A follow-up call and SMS messages were met with an “I’m busy” response.
