Her cheerful personality and mesmerizing beauty gained her a steady following of adoring fans. In her first season, Brinnette had already shown her friendliness, even reaching out to all of them including those she feuded with. Brinnette’s authenticity kept the show real. Every drama that she endured from the other ladies would often lead to a moment of honest confrontation despite it constantly landing her on the bad side of the ladies. Among all the dramas involving her, the most notable is probably the Durban July episode where co-star Lethabo Mathatho yelled at her and even shaded her for moving back into her parent’s house after her divorce from Themba Gezane.
