Speaking on a radio station last week, the Modiselle sisters explained why they decided to stay at home with their mum rather than striking out on their own despite being in all grown up and each very successful
The Modiselle sisters - Refilwe‚ Candice and Bontle are all stars in their own right.
Briefly.co.za like the rest of South Africa, knows all too well that the sisters each have their own thriving career in the entertainment industry, and are more than capable of living on their own. The sisters, however, this week revealed they are happier staying together as a family.
Speaking on a morning radio show the youngest, actress and TV presenter Candice Modiselle, said she and her sisters, dancer and presenter Bontle and model Refilwe were still living at their parents’ house.
“All three of us still live at home,” Candice told DJ Fresh and Angie Khumalo. “We’re comfortable and happy there.”
She explained that while society puts pressure on people to move out of their family home at a certain age, it made more sense to her and her sisters to live at home.
The three also appeared on a television show this weekend together for the very first time. Twitter rejoiced!
Candice said too often people move out but become a burden to their parents by doing so, so instead‚ the family decided to pool together their resources and live together.
She said it helped to have several income streams in a household as opposed to "struggling" on your own.
In some ways that makes the Modiselle's South Africa's very own version of the Kardashian's except they are not living in the fishbowl of having their life be a reality TV show.
However they had no plans to open up their home to a reality show since they value their privacy.
"Honestly‚ we are very protective of our lives. There is a misconception about what reality shows are about‚ that it is all about entertainment instead of about giving people a part of your life. Once we feel like reality shows are in the right place and we are in the right space‚ perhaps. Right now we are so focused on our own crafts that we haven't even discussed it but you never know‚" explained Candice.
Candice said she would eventually move out but everyone was "comfortable" and "happy" at the moment.
Even Bontle's relationship with rapper Priddy Ugly hasn't been affected by the decision.
Candice says their Mum is a wonderful litmus test for the quality of their friends. "She is an excellent judge of character. She can tell if someone is a bit shady or not‚" said Candice.
