Until we get an Official Statement, it will all remain a rumor. But a strong rumor, I must add.
There are talks that the ownership of the Miss Universe franchise for the Philippines will allegedly change hands very soon. And part of the loud whispers is that Richelle Singson-Michael of the LCS Group could be the new owner. I feel sad for BPCI should that happen.
I will keep you posted on this shocking development. If ever.

PS Don’t be surprised if you hear rumors as well that the owners of Miss International and Miss Supranational are shopping around for new owners.

And the three Miss Universe titleholders – the reigning Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, Iris Mittenaere and our very own Pia Wurtzbach will reunite once more on May 8, 2018, Tuesday at The Cove Manila for a fashion show and summer party with The World’s Strongest Men.
Frontrow International is making this event possible once more.

Queen P as shot by Dookie Ducay using a camera phone – the P20Pro
Once more, our three (3) World-Class beauties were gathered together for a cover shoot that stamps the class of our Queens both regionally and around the globe. Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach, Miss World Megan Young and Miss International Kylie Verzosa were shot by my photographer-friend Filbert D. Kung for Harper’s Bazaar Vietnam.
Pong Niu, Gery Penaso and Anton Patdu did the make-up, with the ladies wearing Bea Valdes.
In photos taken by Filbert D. Kung of Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere, let us take a slight throwback to the beautiful French Queen’s last photoshoot in New York City before she crowned Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters in Las Vegas last November 26. Marquis Bias did the styling, with Isabel Perez in-charge of the makeup.
Iris is looking forward to life after her reign as quoted below.

Here is an excerpt from her interview with PEP.ph:
Iris said her immediate itinerary after relinquishing the crown was reuniting with her family in France.
“I’m so happy because I really missed them during one year and I’m gonna be with them for the holidays!” the 24-year-old beauty queen said.
For her post-Miss Universe projects, Iris hinted at a series of television and modeling works, including a potential stint in the Philippines.
“I have a lot of projects… and maybe here.
“I’m gonna work on TV in France, a lot of modeling, too.
“So, I’m really excited.”
I am not an expert in identifying the fine details of luxury handcrafted automobiles, but the service vehicle provided by Frontrow for Miss Universe 2017 Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters and Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere is definitely a Rolls-Royce with the hood topped by the Spirit of Ecstasy. If my eyes are not playing tricks on me, it could be part of the ultra-pricey Ghost Series II line which costs in the whopping range of US$308,000-342,000 (or around PhP15.4M-17.2M).
And with the pink color dominating the chassis, it gives away the kind of passengers riding the same – a sybaritic luxury reserved only for the most beautiful women in the Universe. That, my friends, is how you accord royal treatment to our VIP guests.
In this post are photos taken by my partner Joy Arguil of the said automobile during the Welcome Dinner at Solaire Resort & Casino when Demi-Leigh and Iris were promptly whisked off to their hotel right after the event.
