After the Passing of her Dad, Angelee Claudett delos Reyes Competes in 2012 Supermodel International
When Angelee Claudett delos Reyes competed at the Bb. Pilipinas 2012, I thought that that was going to be the last time I see her in a beauty pageant. At the time, she entered the Top 12 and even won the Best in Gown award. A month or so later, I saw her at the Miss Slimmer’s World 2012 Bikini Philippines pre-pageant and asked if she was going to compete again, but she was non-commital saying she needed a break.
So when I got the news through Norman’s blog that Angelee Claudett delos Reyes was going to represent the Philippines in the 2012 Supermodel International in Bangkok, Thailand, I whispered a quick prayer in my heart for her to win this one.
You see, Angelee Claudett delos Reyes occupies a special place in my heart and I just don’t know why. Maybe it’s because she is a fighter who has experienced pageant loss and victory in big doses. Maybe it’s because she’s like a kitten and her world is a ball of yarn. Or maybe it’s because she’s sweet and thoughtful and cares about others – like when I wanted to ask some tough questions at the Slimmer’s Bikini pre-pageant but she said no. Claudett wanted to ask the contestants fun questions so that they could shine. So gracious talaga!
But there is one thing I hate about Angelee Claudett delos Reyes – she can eat like a horse and still be worthy of the Slimmer’s World Miss Bikini Philippines 2011 title – grrrrr! It’s not FAIR! The first time I met her, she demolished an entire Cheesecake and then when I saw her again after the Bb. Pilipinas 2012 talent show, she was holding a plateful of Dinuguan and Carbonara. It does not compute how she can eat that and look like this!
But, joking aside, its going to be a tough emotional battle for Angelee Claudett delos Reyes as she deals with the demands of competing in the 2012 Supermodel International AND the recent loss of her Dad, Benjamin delos Reyes, who passed away on August 12, 2012. The interment will be tomorrow, August 28 then Claudett departs on August 30 and will arrive in Poland 2 days later than the other contestants.
But knowing Angelee Claudett delos Reyes, she’s going to dazzle them with her stunning self during day then cry her eyes out for her Dad at night before she sleeps. Claudett, my condolences to you and your family. I know that this competition is dedicated to the memory of your Father so I’m wishing you the best and praying that your mourning will be turned into a crowning event!
Bring it home, Claudett!
