Some time back when rumors popped that Sharon Mundia’s (This Is Ess) marriage was in the rocks, the reason that was given was that she was busted by her husband in bed with Patricia Kihoro and Fena Gitu hence sparking lesbian allegations.
Well during a recent interview, HBR radio presenter cum actress Patricia Kihoro opened up some details about her relationship and sex life. She revealed that she plans to hit a year as a celibate lady after breaking up with her man. She wants to just focus on herself and traveling.
“I decided I won’t date this year, I plan to be celibate. I just want this year to be about me, to find myself again, to understand what I’m about, and to travel. I really want to travel. This is my year of saying say yes to all things travel.” she said.
When it came to how her relationship ended, she had this to say:
My last relationship did quite a number on me. It was deep, and beautiful, and almost everything I’d wanted a relationship to be, and when it ended, I was devastated, even though I had seen the end coming in some ways. He was 29 years old, which meant younger than me, but that wasn’t really the issue, because age really is just a number. Sometimes people go through stuff when they are at that age, and then he was going through other things on top of that as well, so he just told me we needed to break it off, in order for him to get himself together. It was hard, but I respected the decision.”
INTERVIEW ABOUT THE LESBIAN RUMOR
Patricia, what was that lesbian threesome rumour about?
I don’t know Yvonne. (Shakes head) I don’t know.
Do you know who started the rumour? How did it start?
I first saw the story on some blog, when someone sent me a link. And then a few other blogs, blogs that I would never take my time out to follow or read.
The details of the rumour appeared to be quite detailed, do you see how your fans could have easily believed it?
When I first read about the rumour, I didn’t think there was a lot of detail to it. However, that notwithstanding, it was unfortunate when people started believing the rumour. That was really unfortunate.
So the rumour was completely false, no truth to it?
None. No truth to it whatsoever.
Why you? Why would someone choose to start such a rumour on you based on nothing?
I ask myself that question every day. But I think there are people, some men, who find it threatening to see young, successful, women, who are supportive of each other, and who continue to rise.
I’ve never met some of these people, I’ve never been in a room with them, and for them to go out and create such false narratives is disappointing to say the least.
Was your family affected by the rumour?
My family, bless them, they know me for who I am. I was never worried about them or my closest friends, because I knew they would completely dismiss such falsehoods. Although my dad did reach out to me when someone from Tanzania sent him a link to the story.
Imagine that. But we just laughed it off. I told him such things, rumours, come with the territory, with fame. That was it.
Why do you think the rumour turned into such a scandal, was it the lesbian factor? Or the threesome factor? Or both?
(Shakes head) I don’t know. But misery loves company. Sometimes we just want to see people in pain or hear terrible things about others, to make ourselves feel better.
