Tee opened up about being a hopeless romantic when her character Sphilile was about to marry a man who loved two women. She explained that her character would go to the ends of the earth for love but that’s where she is different. The actress said that she knows her worth. So, she would not sell herself short.

“I am a sucker for love myself, I am a hopeless romantic. But l I am not stupid in love. I would never forget who I am just because I am in a relationship. I know my worth, which is what I don’t think Sphilile sees. She doesn’t consider herself to be all that important. I think she downplays how amazing she is, which is nothing like me,” she said to Tshisa LIVE.
