With the 13 February 2014 issue of Heat South Africa, I did a post about Heat possibly ‘copying’ story ideas from People South Africa, after receiving an e-mail from a reader of my website, and reader of both these titles. I wasn’t the most popular person, with the editor of Heat, André Neveling, sending me the following;
@MediaSlut After that I’m not interested, thanks. I deal with our readers directly and I’m only concerned about numbers.

This all happened on 7 February 2014, when I pointed this out. One would think that Heat would then be a bit more ‘cautious’ going forward… It seems like it’s not the case, as this was the cover of People South Africa with their 28 February 2014 issue (on street Friday 21 February).
I wanted to mention, I thought it odd that Heat magazine has a very similar cover to what People magazine had a few week ago this week.Didn’t people do the whole Kardashian addicted to surgery thing like a month ago? Are Heat allowed to do that?I just ask because I’m Kardashian obsessed and I hate reading the same info twice. I probably won’t buy Heat this week because of it.Just wondering.
