A post shared by Thando Thabooty Thabethe (@thando_thabethe)
Actress and radio presenter, Thando Thabethe is getting ready for the premiere of her first reality show, “Unstoppable Thabooty,” which is set to air from April 15. Leading up to her big moment, she took to Instagram to share a past video clip of herself auditioning for a show that she didn’t land. She hopes the video clip will inspire other actors to never lose hope when they don’t land a role, and force them to “keep going.”
The “How To Ruin Christmas” actress said that people often think that celebrity actors land every role they audition for and that is why she shared a tape to prove that it’s not always the case, despite putting on a damn good performance. She wrote in the caption: “#RolesIdidNotGet people often think we land every role we read for, so thought to share a series of self-tapes through the years of #RolesIDidNotGet to encourage you to keep going. Shout out @mantsoepout for this read ❤️.”

Queen Latifah has been blazing her own path her entire career. On April 12, that path took her to the Library of Congress. Every year, the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress inducts over two dozen audio contributions from accomplished Americans who have made an impact on culture with their work. Latifah is a part of the 2023 class of inductees and made history in the process.
Latifah’s 1989 debut album All Hail the Queen will forever be a part of the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry. In doing so, the “U.N.I.T.Y.” rapper became the first woman hip hop artiste to join the prestigious collection.
5. Man Utd midfielder Bruno Fernandes suspended for Europa League quarter-final second leg vs Sevilla
"A ridiculous decision." 😡— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) April 13, 2023
It's fair to say Paul Scholes and Owen Hargreaves don't agree with the yellow card, which means Bruno Fernandes will be suspended for Man Utd's second leg match in Sevilla.#UEL pic.twitter.com/nIyTvCNnlo
Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes will miss the Red Devils’ second leg of their Europa League knockout tie with Sevilla to suspension. The Portuguese midfielder was booked for a contentious handball late in the first half and will have to watch the second leg of the knockout tie from the stands after accumulating too many yellow cards. Fernandes’ absence will be a blow as United will head to Sevilla with the tie level at 2-2, after the Red Devils threw away a two-goal lead at Old Trafford.
United took control of the tie with two goals from Marcel Sabitzer but saw the game slip away thanks to late own goals from Tyrell Malacia and Harry Maguire. The Red Devils also saw Raphael Varane go off with a problem at half-time and Lisandro Martinez was carried off late on with what looked to be a severe injury.
