Local celebs on Valentine's day. Hot or not?

Feb 5, 2012 | Phindi Sibiya |

It's that cheesy time of the year again. The malls are crawling with red roses and fattening chocolates - but who still celebrates this day? For some it's torture, while some hopefuls await the red and white day in eager anticipation.

It's that cheesy time of the year again. The malls are crawling with red roses and fattening chocolates - but who still celebrates this day? For some it's torture, while some hopefuls await the red and white day in eager anticipation.

We asked some of our local stars if they get romantic on this day or think it's way over the top.

DAVID KAU:

Funnyman David Kau thought the whole Valentine's Day thang was nonsense - before he became someone's hubby.

"My wife is into that stuff so I have to participate or else."

So how does he aim to make this one unforgettable?

"Thanks for reminding me," he quips.

But he's quick to explain: "I was supposed to travel to Nigeria for work purposes on the 14th, but the plan isn't coming together. I'll think of something."

KGOMOTSO CHRISTOPHER:

Isidingo actress Kgomotso Christopher isn't far off either.

"I'm not against it but I don't obsess over it."

She adds that another contributing factor is that she met her hubby of seven years on February 20.

"So we celebrate our anniversary instead and practically overlook Valentine's Day. We never make a big deal out of it.

"It's usually dinner at a top notch restaurant. But it's always special," says the mom of two.

LORNA MASEKO:

Top Billing stunner Lorna Maseko feels it's overrated.

"It's become a bit tired," says Maseko who'll be working on the day.

"I wouldn't blow anything out of proportion, even if I was home."

So, no romantic candle lit dinner? She quickly changes her tune: "Oh no, I'll be going away with my hubby. I'm hoping to Sun City," she says giggling.

WINNIE MODISE:

Winnie Modise says: "It's such a waste of cash and valuable time. Some people get restless and desperate on that day."

The Generations actress says she has a romantic hubby and it's Valentine's every day.

"He buys me presents all the time, usually lingerie and perfume."

But it's not just about material stuff: "Showing and telling your other half you love them counts for more than any gift."

JOEY RASDIEN:

Newlywed and new papa Joey Rasdien says it's all one big joke.

"People should just do nothing on Valentine's. Why focus on one day when love should be celebrated every day?"

Then he goes off: "St Valentine wasn't exactly a romantic. He was a man with an insatiable sexual appetite. He had 53 concubines, what a bad example! So I say to hell with all of this," he says.
