Diva Montelaba: Will the GMA-7 TV actress bite the pageant bug for 2014?
The whispers are no longer hushed. The buzz is getting louder by the day. Rumor has it that GMA-7 actress Diva Montelaba is possibly considering taking a new route different from her showbiz career – she is currently in the cast of the top-rating teleserye “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real” (The Two Mrs. Reals) – and that is to join the beeline for Miss World Philippines 2014.
There are also floating talks that Ms. Cory Quirino could be shying away from mestizas and mixed-race Filipinas for this year and is leaning towards a very Pinay-looking candidate for Miss World 2014. And this kind of chika tends to augur well for dear Diva. I’ve witnessed the blossoming of her career – from being a Starstruck runner-up all the way to becoming an excellent jazz/hip-hop dancer (who also sings on the side) and a competent dramatic performer. And if schedules won’t be a problem with her taping commitments, there is a good chance we might see her jumping to a new direction now instead of 2015.

Is KF (possibly in coordination with GMA Artist Center) ready to field this 5’8″-ish stunner? Or is there another beauty from the network (watch out for my blog on that tomorrow) being eyed to take part instead? ;-)

Queenie and her selfie
I’m not sure what specific content to write about in posting the picture of Miss World Philippines 2012 Queenie Rehman showing off her enviable six pack abs. Whew!
You just gotta love the hardwork and determination of this girl even if she is not really being buzzed that much in the pageant scene of late. Could she be preparing for a bodybuilding competition or something? Not a far-fetched possibility, if you ask me.
Credit goes to gym/fitness/health and wellness guru John Cuay who whipped Queenie into an excellent shape that is far more impressive than the body she had during Miss World 2012 in Ordos. :-)

It takes a lot to make Osmel Sousa a very happy man. Given his high standards for beauty – perfectionist even – he will not settle for anything less than the steep benchmarks he is world-renowned for. And the final assembly of Official Candidates
for Miss Venezuela 2014
has elicited a big smile on his face (left photo
). Who wouldn’t be excited with this group?

Molly signing the guest book
Just the other day, Miss Universe 2013 Gabriela Isler made a courtesy call to the Honorable Consul General Mario Lopez de Leon, Jr. at the Philippine Consulate in New York City. And that visit alone made tongues start wagging as to what business does she have with the latter. Could it be something related to a future possible Miss Universe hosting of the Philippines? Or perhaps, the Miss Universe Organization is coordinating (through Molly
) about sending further help to the country via the Cordaid Fund?

If you ask me, I’d rather go with the additional Cordaid Fund assistance to the Philippines. It clearly shows the soft spot of the MUO for the country.
Don’t you agree, dear readers? :-)

While waiting for things to start moving over at the Miss World Philippines 2014 Headquarters, Valerie Weigmann decided to go on a short visit to Siem Reap in Cambodia and make that anticipated trip to Angkor Wat a reality. Actually, she has been meaning to set foot inside the world-famous historical landmark for quite some time now.
She can finally cross this one off her bucket list, as she herself hashtagged after uploading the image on her FB page. ;-)

Last night, the Swimwear Competition of Misters of the Philippines 2014 was held at the Club Balai Isabel in Talisay, Batangas. The Official Candidates proudly displayed their gym-trained bodies and showed their personal fitness style to the judges. In the end, five guys were named Top 5 Best in Swimwear and they are (in random order:
) Joseph Doruelo of Caloocan City, Ichin Daclan of Sarangani, Adam Davies of Fil-UK, Judah Cohen of Fil-USA and Neil Perez of Tondo, Manila. One of them will be eventually declared as the sole winner to be fast-tracked to the Top 14 on September 7’s Finals Night at UMAK Grand Theatre.
In the same event, a Best in Resort Wear award was also handed out by the host venue. Bocaue, Bulacan’s Niño Allain de Ocampo received the honor.
