So much has changed in the lives of Pauleen Luna and Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.
Pauleen became Mrs. Vic Sotto, while Pia was crowned Miss Universe.
But their closeness has stayed the same even after 14 years.
The two ladies became friends when they were both launched as part of Star Magic Batch 11 in 2002.
Last week, Pia posted on Instagram a birthday greeting for Pauleen, who turned 28 on November 10.
She posted an old photo of them taken when they were just newbies in showbiz, and wrote a sentimental caption.
“A little throwback for one of my best friends in the whole universe @pauleenlunasotto.
"Thank you so much for sticking by me thru all these years kahit na matigas ulo ko.
"Thru thick and thin eyebrows! Happy birthday! Love you.”
To this, Pauleen replied with an equally heartwarming message to her Miss Universe BFF.
“Thank you, Pi!!! I love you, Miss Universe or not.”
