Brittany and Cynthia Daniel have had fans seeing double for years now — first as models for Doublemint gum ads, then as stars of Sweet Valley High. The dramedy series, based off Francine Pascal’s book series of the same name, ran for four seasons between 1994 and 1997 in syndication and on UPN.
But the Daniel twins’ newest joint venture, a lifestyle website called The Sweet Life, might help you differentiate their personalities.
“Our blog is going to be different because you’re getting two takes — my take and Britt’s take,” Cynthia tells People. “It’s almost like you have two blogs in one!”
The website covers just about everything a lifestyle destination would cover: fashion, beauty, wellness, fitness, travel, decor, and parenting. And these gals have a lot of experiences from which to draw. Cynthia is married to actor Cole Hauser and has three kids with him; Brittany survived stage IV non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and is now engaged to broker Adam Touni.
“I feel like our fans helped create this,” Cynthia says. “They’re always asking so many questions about our beauty regimen, workouts, etc. We just started communicating with them and I feel like it evolved organically from there.”
Cynthia retired from acting after Sweet Valley High, but Brittany kept going, appearing in 80 episodes of The Game, for example. Now, however, the twins’ careers are back in sync. “I think secretly we just want to spend more time together!” Brittany says. “Cynthia and I worked on Sweet Valley High years ago, so coming back and working with my sister is amazing. She’s my best friend.”
