FHM‘s second sexiest Katrina Halili expressed regret over losing her crown to Marian Rivera though she was still thankful that at least she was number two.
Two-time FHM Sexiest woman in the Philippines Katrina Halili guested yesterday at Startalk to talk about the events that happened during the night at the World Trade Center, where the FHM Anniversary party was held. It wasn’t all smiles and cheers during the said event as Katrina was about to reveal.
Even before the interview began, Startalk host Lolit Solis was already fuming, saying things like “Wala siyang [Rizza Santos] karapatan na ganyanin ang mga taga-GMA! Sila Alyssa daw din at si LJ…!”
I took time for Katrina and Butch Francisco to calm Lolit down, and when Lolit was finally quiet, Butch proceeded to ask Katrina on what really happened at the backstage of the event.
“Ang unang nagsumbong sa akin, e, si Alyssa,” Butch shared before Katrina could speak. “Pero in fairness sabi ni Alyssa na huwag na sabihin on air. Pero alam mo naman ako, may kadaldalan na din, so sinabi ko. Anyway, ano ba ang ginawa sa iyo?”
“Nagbibihis po ako doon sa CR, ‘tapos nakita ko siya [Rizza] at ningitian ko siya,” Katrina said. “‘Tapos, ang sama ng tingin niya. Nagulat ako. Sabi ko, ‘Ano ba yan?'”
“Ni hindi ko nga siya kilala!” Lolit interjected. “Sino ba yang Rizza Santos na ‘yan?!”
“Don’t ask me,” Butch quipped. Changing the subject, he told Katrina, “Pati si Alyssa ginanun din daw.”
“Ay, nagulat nga po ako na siya din pala,” Katrina exclaimed. “Sabi din ni LJ [Reyes] na siya din sinungitan daw.”
“Bakit, kilala mo ba siya?” Lolit demanded. “Bakit mo siya ningitian?”
“E, siyempre friendly kami,” Katrina sweetly said. “‘Yan ang mga Kapuso!”
“Palibhasa…” Lolit again ranted, “number 18 lang siya!”
Changing the subject, Butch related on how fellow Kapuso star Iwa Moto volunteered to defend Alyssa by proposing that they get back at Rizza. The peaceful Alyssa however, said that wouldn’t be necessary.
“Huwag na po,” Katrina said. “Ayaw ng mga Kapuso ang ganyan. Friendly kami dito, e.”
NUMBER ONE NO MORE. Shifting to another issue, this time with the title ‘FHM‘s Sexiest’, Butch asked whether or not Katrina was feeling any regret for not getting a three-peat on the title.
“Aaminin ko na tao lang ako at siyempre nanghihinayang ako,” Katrina blurted. “Siyempre ang ganda naman na tatlong beses ako nanalo ‘di ba? Pero siyempre masaya naman ako na si Marian ang number one! And, hindi naman masama na number two ‘di ba?”
“Sa total, nagpapakatotoo na din lang, sino sa palagay mo ang mas sexy sa inyo ni Marian?” Butch followed.
“Siyempre idol ko sarili ko!” Katrina quipped. “Pero siyempre love ko naman si Marian.”
That said, Butch asked whether there would be an issue between Marian and Katrina since, if people remember, a rift occurred between the two of them during the Marimar days.
Before Katrina can answer, Lolit exclaimed, “Hindi! Ang kaaway nila ngayon ay si Rizza Santos!”
Katrina laughed. She then answered Butch’s question by saying, “Hindi. Okey naman kami ni Marian po at masaya ako para kay Marian.”
Butch then commented that the crowd was wilder in Katrina’s presence than that of Marian. Katrina however, just joked by saying, “Marami akong napapasok na kamag-anak ko!”
“Si Rizza Santos pinagkaguluhan?” Butch coyly asked.
“Hindi! Wala! Ang yabang-yabang niya, ha!” Lolit shouted.
