You have our full support on your journey to bring home the crowns. #bbpilipinas2013 #binibinigold

When I saw the above on the official Facebook page of Bb. Pilipinas, I almost cried. It means so much to me to see the Bb. franchise send such a message to rival franchise Miss World Philippines under Cory Quirino. I really shouldn’t even use the word ‘rival‘ so let me scratch those words out now.

Why am I so touched? Because when I run into people in the industry, specially Bb. Pilipinas queens they say things like, ‘buti you don’t get into trouble for featuring other pageants in your blog.’ I’m so used to that comment that I just tell them that there’s never been a problem.  Yes, I am a Bb. Pilipinas winner, twice over, but never have I been made to feel uncomfortable by Madame Stella for writing about other pageants. That is the simple truth. Thank you to Bb. Pilipinas and SMA for being so gracious!
