MANILA, Philippines – It was a showdown of Philippines’ sexiest celebrities.
Wearing their best bikinis, female celebrities flaunted their curves on Sunday as they strutted on stage during FHM’s “Bikini Heaven” show on Boracay island.
Among the celebrities who graced the event were "Banana Split" star Nina Jose, model actress Regine Angeles, former Pinoy Big Brother housemates Wendy Valdez and Sam Pinto, and Filipino-French model-actress Solenn Heussaff.
In the middle of the show, a dancer’s bikini top accidentally came undone, exposing her breast. She, however, was able to fix the so-called wardrobe malfunction right away.
Meantime, despite the glitz of the night, 2 of the sexy participants turned emotional.
In an interview, sexy star Katrina Halili burst into tears when she recalled the biggest challenge she faced in 2009 – the sex video scandal.
Halili said she is thankful that, despite the scandal, blessings continue to come her way.
"Siyempre thankful ako sa lahat ng nangyari sa akin. Thank you po sa second chance na ibinigay ninyo sa akin, sa lahat ng tao na naka-appreciate sa akin, sa lahat ng tumatanggap sa akin at sa mga prayers ninyo para sa akin... Thankful ako na naka-survive ako," she said.
"Mas iba na ‘yong utak ko ngayon, hindi na pang-sarili, pang-lahat na… Mas priority ko ibang tao kaysa sa sarili ko... Kailangan kong ayusin 'yong sarili ko, kailangan kong mag-catch up," she added.
On the other hand, sexy actress Aubrey Miles said she’s worried about her family living in quake and tsunami-hit Japan.“’Yong dad ko half-Japanese actually, kaya lahat ng buong side ng dad ko nasa Japan. So naga-update kami, then may isa pa kaming relative, family member na hindi namin ma-contact... So ‘yon ‘yong ginagawa namin –updating. Tumatawag kami sa embassy kung puwedeng gawan ng paraan para makauwi.. Ngayon inuuna ko muna ‘yong family ko na makauwi,” she said.
