The reality TV star is set to host Vuzu's entertainment magazine television series V-Entertainment's 100th episode at 6pm on Wednesday.

Thema, who is the original host of V-Entertainment, "will be there to guide the gossip, peace-making, revelations and more – including when a host of A-List celebs gathered at a Joburg restaurant to mark the occasion," the channel said in a statement.

The TV star's Twitter's tirades in 2011 led to employer SoftSheen-Carson cancelling her endorsement deal.

According to the City Press in 2011, Thema, "whose raging emotions have been on display since her reality TV show, Nonhle Goes to Hollywood, ended in March [2011], has landed in hot water with her employer, SoftSheen-Carson."

Thema responded to this by tweeting that she “made $10?million (about R69?million) from Dark and Lovely face unfortunately I could NOT be the face forever as u all expected. But don’t worry?.?.?.?I’m rich."

Thema's Twitter meltdown, which gave her the nickname "Queen of Twitter Wars", was highly publicised in 2011 after sending tweets which included: "I want ALL my smurfs to call me JESUS from now on ... i we all good", and one directed to celebrity Minnie Dlamini which read: 

According to DStv.com, "In 2011, Nonhle took on reality TV star and then-Yfm DJ Dineo Ranaka in an epic Twitter battle.
Nonhle started a fire when she accused Dineo of being poor, stupid and a drug addict.

"Flaunting her money in Dineo's face, she claimed she had enough money to buy the radio station. The spat ended with both women trading colourful insults on the social network."

The 100th episode celebration will air on Wednesday, April 24, at 6pm on channel 116 on the DStv bouquet.
