Ma. Venus Raj Goes Ahead with Training for Miss Universe
The very thing I have been praying for – a healed relationship between Ma. Venus Raj and Bb. Pilipinas Charities Inc. – seems to have been granted. In this Manila Bulletin article released today, Venus is quoted as saying that everything is now ‘okay’ between her and BPCI. (I am glad that the same publication that published that infuriating report on Ma. Venus Raj skipping training came out with a positive report.)
Her training starts tomorrow, April 19, 2010, but that doesn’t mean that she is officially reinstated as Bb. Pilipinas Universe 2010. She still has to work on getting a valid Philippine passport.
I am so blessed by this news and praying hard that things are truly on the mend between Venus and BPCI. When I visited Venus’ Facebook today, I was heartened by her status which read:
A pure heart is a forgiving heart. Have a blessed Sunday…
Meanwhile, Team Venus on Facebook and other reports confirm that 2nd Runner-up Nikette Henson is being trained by BPCI just in case Venus cannot be sent to represent the Philippines in the Miss Universe 2010 Beauty Pageant.
Nikette Henson was announced as the replacement when Bb. Pilipinas dethroned Ma. Venus Raj.
While the news that Nikette is also being trained (SEE BELOW) might antagonize Ma. Venus Raj fans, Venus has repeatedly asked her supporters to stop attacking Nikette online. The two girl have remained close friends throughout the whole brouhaha and Ma. Venus Raj continues to stand by her statement that Nikette Henson has nothing to do with her dethronement.

So, may you all have pure hearts and a blessed Sunday
