Madam & Mercy: Mercy tells her mom some home truths
If there’s one thing we love about Mercy and Madam’s relationship, it’s the fact that they always look out for each other. While some conversations are difficult to initiate, they somehow manage to find a way to keep each other in check. Viewers witnessed this when the mother and daughter had an honest chat about a recent family event.
After throwing her parents the most lavish anniversary celebration, Madam was really pleased with herself. However, the only problem is that it seems she didn’t involve her sisters in the planning.
Mercy confronts Madam
The following day Mercy called her mother to the side and reminded her that she’ll always have her back, no matter what. “I continuously heard something yesterday when everybody was speaking, how you carry the family and everything. When we were in Lephalale, you said I that I should take care of you.”
Mercy then told her mother that she doesn’t understand why she didn’t share the anniversary planning responsibilities with her sisters. “But you ended up doing everything. But you also need to be a team player for everybody to win,” she said.
Madam defended herself by explaining: “For the style I wanted, Agnes wouldn’t have agreed.” But Mercy still couldn’t understand and told her mother, “You say she wouldn’t have agreed to the style you had in mind but remember that you taught us how to do décor and catering. You could have told Agnes that you’re showing her a new way of doing things so that she knows how you want things to be done.”
Madam had good intentions
However, Madam believes that she only had good intentions and didn’t mean to leave her sisters out. “It was a surprise also for them. Ditshele is not well due to her knee operation. I could have asked her to make a few calls, but she had other duties. I just wanted to do everything by myself and surprise them.”
Her family obviously didn’t see it that way. “You were supposed to tell them when you had the family meeting in preparation for the party,” Mercy said. She added: “I just want her [Madam] to know that the longer she does this, at some point she’s gonna blow up.”
It seems like Madam got the message and understands where her daughter’s coming from. You can follow the mother and daughter relationship on Madam & Mercy right here on Showmax.
