One persistent rumor that has been hounding Regine is her supposed nose job.
Having been in show business for more than three decades, the ASAP performer has learned to take some showbiz reports with a grain of salt.
Besides, she never felt insecure about her nose, thus, not finding a compelling reason to have it fixed through cosmetic surgery.
Her late father, Gerry Velasquez, also discouraged her.
She explained, "Yung paniniwala ng tatay ko na, 'Naku, wag mo ipapagalaw ang ilong mo, magbabago ang boses mo!'
"I never really thought of it kasi feeling ko, meron namang make-up. So hindi ko rin siguro masyado tinignan yung sarili ko sa salamin, yung parang, 'Kailangan ko ba na?'
"Parang hindi ko masyado na-concentrate yun."
Regine continued, "I was never insecure. Period. But I was very aware that I wasn't the prettiest girl. I was even told I was ugly to my face, but I never really... I don't know, I just accepted it 'cause it's my face.
"Hindi naman ako na-insecure. Pinanglalaban ko na lang yung boses ko, e. Pataasan na lang ng boses."
Regine also noted, "Bilang Pilipina, I actually like our button nose. I love it. I love our button nose.
"My nose is actually... I consider it a button nose kasi medyo malapad siya dito [bottom part] 'tapos parang meron akong lamesa dito na hindi ko maintindihan, puwede kong lagyan ng kape.
"Alam mo yun, yung malapad yung dito. Parang square nose nga yung tawag nila rin diyan. I like it."
Her secret to making it look thinner? Nose line.
She told the press, "Naglalagay lang ako ng nose line dito... Although, I do have a bridge, meron naman akong bridge because I got that from my father."
Regine, however, warned not to overdo it.
"Kung mag-o-office ka lang te, wag masyadong mag-nose line di ba kasi kitang-kita mo naman yun."
TALK TO AN EXPERT
In any case, Regine advised those who are planning to go under the knife to seek help from reputable doctors and clinics.
She explained, "Just go to the right doctor. Huwag mong tipirin kasi ilong iyan."
She further recalled watching a show featuring a person who underwent through several procedures to fix his or her botched nose job.
Regine said, "Meron akong napanood sa National Geographic ba yun or something, hala basta parang naka-20 times niyang pina-opera yung nose niya kasi hindi niya type.
"Nag-collapse! Nagko-collapse pala yung nose and he or she was left with a hole, with just a freaking hole in the face kasi nag-collapse na. Hindi na kaya.
"So make sure na if you're going to do that, you go to the right doctor.
"And then, di ba ino-orient ka muna kung anong gagawin sa iyo? Make sure na you understand what they're going to do."
