The online community (actually even the public and the grammar nazis out there) have already feasted on the ‘honest mistake’ committed by Miss Dalaguete, Cebu Pircelyn Pialago when she was interviewed by ABS-CBN’s Mario Dumaual on what happened to her friend and fellow contestant Leslie Ann Pine during the swimsuit competition of Miss Philippines Earth 2014.
And she got our attention alright when she said that Leslie “passed away” instead of “passing out” minutes after the latter collapsed due to fatigue, electrolyte imbalance and sheer hunger. What struck some individuals is the fact that Pircelyn is a TV news anchor and field reporter in her home province. She could have easily prevented the minor slip from getting blown out of proportion. But then again, she already got her 5 minutes of fame for the same so she must be tickled pink in a way with the quick spotlight. 😉
