To answer the question above, “real friends” can be had in pageants. From my point of view, I can attest to that*. As far as numbers are concerned, though, the number is not that high. But what do I significantly know? I am simply coming from a blogger’s opinion. And experience-wise, 95% of the people I meet are always nice (or well-behaved) in my presence.
Take it from these ladies – Pia Wurtzbach, Bianca Guidotti and Carla Lizardo – who have solidified their sisterhood through the years.
* – I can say that my down-to-Earth friends among Queens include Cindy Obeñita, Rabiya Mateo, Chelsea Fernandez, Trisha Martinez, Leren Mae Bautista, Hannah Arnold and Angelee delos Reyes among others.
