Connie Ferguson has finally opened up about the recent feud between Mara Louw and Ferguson Films, the production company that she owns with her husband Shona Ferguson.

This is following Sunday Sun’s reports that the veteran actress was fired by the creators of the local drama series The Queen after Louw turned down the contract.

"Yes I declined to take the offer because they treated me like trash," Louw told the publication.

Speaking on Trending SA, Ferguson, who is also the co-producer of The Queen dismissed the allegations and insisted that Louw should do better than say she was treated like "trash" because she was treated her with utmost respect.

“She would have to do better than just say she was treated like 'trash’. As with all our cast members, we have been nothing but respectful, especially to her.

She continued: “She is an elderly woman. With the way I was raised, it makes me extremely uncomfortable engaging with her on a mud-slinging level. It's not my style. I pray mama Marah finds peace in her spirit and that is really all I can do for her."

In the meantime, Louw has consulted her lawyers for legal advice and has since told TshisaLIVE that she would be “watching the situation”.

"I contacted a lawyer to get their opinion on what had happened but I thought it would die down. I am now just watching the situation."

Mzansi Magic publicist adviced that Shona Ferguson is not accepting any interviews at the moment.
