In a recent Chika Minute interview, Eat Bulaga host Pauleen Luna assumed that her bestfriend and bridesmaid Miss Philippines-Universe Pia Wurtzbach won’t be able to attend her wedding this December. This was Pauleen’s way of expressing her anticipation that Pia will get the Miss Universe 2015 title and will not be able to immediately go back to the Philippines.
Pauleen was right. Earlier today, in a drama-filled moment, Pia Wurtzbach became the third Filipina to get the much-coveted Miss Universe title. Together with other Filipino supporters, Pauleen turned to Instagram to show support for her bestfriend.
You were 12 and I was 13. We had nothing but BIG dreams. I remember we would choose to buy food in Mini Stop instead of Brother’s Burger in ABS because we only had little money. We would patiently go to workshop every single day because we wanna be big stars! We would wait for hours at taping because our scenes were only very few. We even shared one role in a movie. I will never forget those days. Simple and days made up of dreams. And now, it’s so nice to know that we’ve both come so far. We’re both blessed, in our own way, and I must say, 2015 is both our year! I am very glad also that you have found a deep relationship with the Lord. CONGRATULATIONS MISS UNIVERSE! I am equally proud of you before as I am proud of you now. You have such a good and kind heart. You totally deserve this! Congratulations P! Love you! @piawurtzbach ??
