They both have built their brands separately for decades and throughout it all, most of their fans never knew they were sisters.

Apparently, you won’t see the two sisters together because despite the fact that they technically are blood sisters, they “aren’t sisters” according to what Sommore said in an interview with Divine Martino:
“We share the same father but we’re not necessarily sisters.”
