You'd think Nelson Mandela, a worldly, highly decorated 94-year-old man who spent 27 years of his life in a harsh, degrading prison fighting to free his people from the shackles of injustice and colonial abuse would want absolutely nothing to do with the TLC reality show Toddlers & Tiaras.
According to two granddaughters, Madiba is actually a fan of the infamous show and reality TV in general.
"You'll be interested to know that he loves Toddlers and Tiaras," Zaziwe Dlamini-Manaway and Swati Dlamini told the Associated Press during an interview about their own reality show, Being Mandela (more on that in a second). "Because of the kids!" Zaziwe exclaimed. "He just loves children."
Thankfully, Being Mandela doesn't feature any scenes with the man himself, but ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela is said to stop by frequently, so hold on to your history books.
