Instead, Dorea said they were creating content in a bid to stay relevant in the showbiz industry after the show came to an end.
“Ronald and I are good friends to date, we were very good friends and whatever we were doing, we were creating content. We met and talked and resorted to that as a way of making money. We were not dating, we were good friends,” she said.
