whatthey say

Carl Pistorius, Oscar’s brother “Reeva was dead. She was covered in blood and he just kept crying out in utter disbelief of what had happened, that she was gone.

BY THE age of eight she knew one day she wanted to help people.

But it was no laughing matter when the 70-year-old star recently channelled the iconic character as he broke the sad news to fans that he’d been diagnosed with cancer. “As the Dude would say . . . ‘New s**t has come…
