This weekend we rubbed shoulders with South Africa’s top celebrities at the prestigious Miss SA pageant at Sun City. One of my top favourites through the past few months was breathtaking Melinda Bam – who was crowned the new Miss SA on Sunday evening.

Her first princess is Remona Moodley, 22, and second princess Thuli Sangwini, 21. Melinda is a 22-year-old Pretoria University B Comm marketing student-she will represent SA in the Miss World and Miss Universe pageants. I believe she will be the perfect ambassador -as from the word go Melinda epitomised the phrase “beauty from the inside out”.

Her prize package includes a car, a designer diamond watch and a luxury trip to Paris and of course my attention whenever she needs it!
