Bb. Pilipinas-Globe 2018 Michele Gumabao has disclaimed allegation that she underwent beauty enhancement procedures.
The volleyball player-turned-beauty queen candidly said she would admit it if it were true or should she decide to go under the knife.
“Wow naman, thank you so much,” she replied when asked to comment about the issue.
“Wala pa po akong budget para magpa-beauty enhancement. I’m not the type to hide.”
She said she had her teeth done by a known dental clinic, and nothing else.
“GAOC always takes care of my teeth. I do have veneers.
"But aside from that, I didn’t do anything yet, so I’m not one to hide.
“If I want to do something to my face, the whole word would know,” she stressed.
The 25-year-old beauty queen and TV personality swore she is “all natural.”
Michele was interviewed by PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and another reporter at the Aquafina Purified Water celebrity launch last Friday, June 22, at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati City.
She was named one of the brand's ambassadors, together with Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, beauty-queen maker Jonas Gaffud, makeup artist Albert Kurniawan, and fashion designer Francis Libiran.
GOOD PUBLICITY. Michele said, “I’m not into social media... reading comments, reading blogs."
She explained that's how she avoids criticisms online, "I try to stay as positive as I can.
"I can’t afford the criticism, especially while playing [volleyball].
"It’s too much distraction, it comes into your head, you think about it.
“And also I don’t have the time to scroll and read what the people are saying about me.
“Yes, I know that a lot of people say, but I did lose a lot of weight in Binibini.
"And when you lose a lot of weight, everything else gets smaller.”
She also rationalized, “When people talk about you, it’s also good for you. It’s good publicity for you.
“It’s good to know they appreciate also all the efforts I’ve been putting in on Binibini.”
