South African actresses who allegedly lost their jobs due to failing pregnant. It goes without saying in this industry that falling pregnant can come at a high price to pay. For the lucky actresses their pregnancies can be hidden very well or be incorporated in the storyline of the show.
For some it is the end of the road and a replacement is found soon as they get shoved aside like what they did is a taboo. A few months ago, actress and tv personality Gabisile Tshabalala took on the issue using her own pregnancy as an example.
It is very sad when we lose talent because someone decides to start a family and it is during this period that women need an income, as there is an extra mouth to feed.
