In a previous article, Michelle disclosed her game plan for the pageant. She said she’ll give her best to win the crown because she has trained so hard for the competition.
Melanie Marquez was recently interviewed by Kapuso host Iya Villania for the show “Mars Pa More.” Based on a report from Philstar, she revealed that she didn’t know that daughter joined the pageant Miss World Philippines and only discovered it through Michelle’s dad Derek Dee.
“Hindi ko alam. Ang nagsabi lang sa akin ‘yung tatay niya. Gusto ako i-surprise. Tapos nu’ng nalaman ko sa tatay niya, parang ako ‘yung sumali. Aligaga ako, ako ‘yung kinakabahan kasi hindi ko nakita ‘yung preparations niya,” Melanie said.
Nonetheless, Miss World 1979 Melanie Marquez is confident that her gorgeous daughter was ready to join the pageant. “I think she’s ready kasi sinabi ko ‘yan last year. Ang sabi ko, ‘Anak, kung hindi ka prepared, never join. You have to be physically, mentally and emotionally prepared kasi marami dyan na hindi mo expected na mangyayari. You can’t please everyone, but give your best, be sincere and (be) yourself,’” she said.
According to the report, Melanie Marquez also shared her advice for her daughter. “Siyempre proud ako pero ang gusto kong ma-instill sa anak ko, being a beauty queen is not just glamor, it has to go deeper. You have to have a meaning or a purpose tsaka ‘yung cause. I always believed (that) in beauty, you have to need a kind heart and you’re willing to serve,” Melanie said.
