Jacque Maribe recently granted an interview and when the topic of conversation gravitated towards her former relationship with Jowie Irungu. It should really come as no surprise that people are interested in her failed relationship that led to engagement because the pair were actually pretty serious about leading a life together and they were very public about the relationship.
Jacque and Jowie were “relationship goals” for many young people and impressionable idiots. All that came crashing down when the country was surprised to find out about Monica Kimani’s brutal murder that quickly came to engulf the couple with Jowie being the prime suspect and Ms Maribe being dragged to the docks right next to him.
The lady quickly found out that Kenyan celebrities rarely have true fans but she was lucky enough to have some true blue friends who stood by her and did the most to support her in whatever capacity they could. It was disastrous to say the least but she was able to have a bit of a soft landing because of her chums.
The problem, however, is that she cannot help herself from talking about Jowie Irungu. While I understand that the questions are bound to get asked, shutting up and keeping your counsel is a response. And it is much more dignified than actually saying the following:
I don’t talk about that man. One, because we have a court gag and there is no way of speaking about him and not giving details of what happened.
And second, I just don’t really care about him at all.
In truth, when you do not care about an individual, you remain silent about him. You do not keep answering every question about them while pretending not to care. You do not even care to send barbs their way because you have genuinely moved on and have no feelings whatsoever about the individual.
And to help her think of ways to do this, I have some suggested scenarios and responses she could jack and I wouldn’t mind sharing the swagger:
Interviewer: So tell us about you and Jowie Irungu, where do things stand?
Jacque Maribe: <Smiles and waves>
Interviewer: So Jowie is in a new relationship…
Jacque Maribe: <Sits silently and doesn’t respond>
Interviewer: Let us talk about Jowie Irungu.
Jacque Maribe: <Stands up and walks away>
Interviewer: Our viewers want us to talk a bit about Jowie.
Jacque Maribe: I can’t.
