Talk Show Queen's Reservations

No other name rings louder than Oprah Winfrey when we talk about talk shows. She is what other famous personalities considered a US cultural phenomenon. What she buys people buy, and her favorite books, movies, whatever, becomes other peoples' choice as well.

Forbes always include her as one of the most powerful women in the world. She might be having issues with her own cable company but she is still the world's wealthiest black woman. She even asked one airline company to delay its take off because she was looking for someone. That someone is Charice! Our very own talent who is making waves in the international scene. Thanks to who? To Oprah of course who paved way for her success. 

Oprah is not a Filipino but why is she the featured person here? Well, everyone is going "gaga" about the recently concluded Miss Universe 2011 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. My facebook feed is being flooded with post about Oprah's reservations of the pageant. According to her, Miss Philippines Shamcey Supsup deserves to win the title.

This is exactly what's being posted.

"I have reservations with the results. If the only basis is the Q and A portion after having been trimmed down to 5, Ms. Philippines deserved to win. What made her different from the rest is that she had no seconds to rethink of her answers as she had no interpreter to break the ice. The rest had their interpreters and having breaks on seconds to think about their answers. Hands down, Ms. Philippines answered straight to the point."

What are your thoughts?  

Oops, i might forget. Congratulations to Ms. Susup! Wink ;p

Definitely, Q and A is not the only basis to win the crown. In Ms. Leah Salonga's guess, Miss Philippines is second to the throne. So I wont be fighting for our candidate to win. I'm contented with the result. Ms. Angola deserves to win, and for sure the 1st runner-up does too. I'm just glad that we are still on top 5 this year, like last year. That alone I'm already proud to be Pinoy!

BTW, I appreciate Shamcey's answer to the final question. God was honored, I'm sure He will honor her ,too. And He already did.

Ms. Salonga is not a beauty queen though she can if she wants hehe; so i wont question her integrity with regards to her statement (my opinion). As an international star who worked with high caliber talents i think she can spot a beauty or two to a person (my opinion again), that's why Donald Trump chosed her as one of the judges.

I, too, is contented with the result. Being in the top 5 for two consecutive years is already a milestone. As for her answer, HE did honor her really..Have a nice day!
