D.J.’s got it goin’ on!
While I wasn’t exactly feeling that vibe, her latest quote has me more than impressed.
Currently a contestant on Season 18 of Dancing with the Stars, the actress is refusing to wear the skimpy outfits that the female dancers are accustomed to.
The mom of three kids — daughter Natasha, 15, and sons Lev, 14, and Maks, 12 — with her husband, former NHL star Valeri Bure, plans to add a dash of class while dancing.
“I won’t be the sexiest one out there,” she told Us. “I am a mom and I want to be a good role model for my children and my husband. But I think for each dance we’ll wear what reflects the dance but in the most classy way possible.”
The 37-year-old actress says she’s dancing (and dressing) for all the moms everywhere.
“I want to represent all the moms out there and inspire them and encourage them,” she said. “I’m just a woman, I’m not any different than all the moms out there — my priority is my family, my husband, my kids and so this for me is truly just a joy.”
She added: “The two most important things in my life are my faith and my family and I know that is what is going to get me through this competition. I’m not gonna be your sexy girl, I’m a mom of three kids so I want to look good and feel beautiful, but I will probably stay on the more modest end of costuming.”
I love this!
I wish there were more celebrities like Candace out there! While she does have the hot body to flaunt, she’s choosing positive role modeling instead.
What a great message to our youth: outer beauty pales in comparison to inner beauty and self-respect.
While I don’t identify myself as a Christian, I am a woman of faith and I respect her beliefs and devotion to her family. Not to mention, when you truly love yourself, you understand that self-exploitation serves no one.
I applaud Candace’s decision to go for modest costumes, and I thank her for setting the bar a little higher in Hollywood.
Do you like Candace’s decision to wear modest dance costumes?
