Nagkausap na ba sila ni Annabelle?
“Hindi pa nga, e. Kung gusto niya akong kausapin, okay lang,” sagot niya.
Tinanong din ng press si Gloria kung ano wish niya para kina Amalia at Annabelle.
Sagot ng dating Miss Universe: "One thing, I want very much, Amalia to lose weight—maybe nothing to do with it [rift].
“Maybe Tita Annabelle… wala, to continue what she is. Because kung magbago siya, hindi na siya ‘yon, di ba?
“And for me, also to lose weight.”
TRANSGENDERS IN MISS UNIVERSE. Bilang kauna-unahang Pinay na nanalong Miss Universe noong 1969, kinuha rin ang opinyon ni Gloria sa desisyon ng Miss Universe organizers na payagang sumali ang transgenders sa naturang beauty pageant.
Ayon kay Gloria, “Yes, if the pageant says they are welcome, they’re welcome.
“But the thing is, are they going to allow them to win? And will the country want a gay people to represent them?
“So if the country wants, so do I. I mean, that’s the least of my problems.
“In fact, ako nga, before, they used to say, ‘What do you think of people who have… retokado or whatever?’ Sa akin, balewala ‘yan, e.
“Now, thank God I was not part of… during this time, because medyo mahirap din na kalaban na…
“The gay people, many of them are really gorgeous. Many of them are really maganda ang balat and everything…
“I’ve seen some that are really pretty.”
