Just when Dintle thought she found her one true love, she discovered she accidentally married her biological father, Reggie, in the latest episode of Scandal!.

The journey of Dintle Nyathi (played by Mapaseka Koetle-Nyokong) has really been one for the books. Even with her career success, fate has thrown her some serious challenges. 

As soon as her life comes together and she rekindles her relationship with her long-lost daughter Motshabi (played by Dakalo Molope), she meets the man of her dreams with whom she finds genuine comfort. 

Dintle's biological mother, Salamina, decides to see her daughter at her wedding, only to realise one thing, Dintle just got married to someone from her past – her biological father (played by Makhaola Ndebele).


Upon finding out, Dintle is in total disbelief, and they decide a DNA test is needed to see the truth. 

The potentially shattering revelation is made on Thursday, 2 February, when the couple gets the results. Will this be the end of their beautiful fairy tale?

Watch Scandal! Mondays to Fridays at 19:30 on (DStv 194).
