Shamcey Supsup

The Miss Universe 3rd runner-up Shamcey Supsup has just landed an endorsement deal with Avon Philippines.

The beauty queen is the newest endorser of Avon’s beauty products. Aside from the beauty products, she’s also the endorser of the newest line of fragrances. Other celebrities who are also endorsers of Avon fragrances are Ruffa Gutierez, Angel Locsin , and Lea Salongga.

The beauty queen told everyone in the press conference yesterday, September 28, that she is glad to have been chosen by Avon as an endorser. She further added that her aunt used to sell Avon beauty products.

“I am happy to be part of empowering women and to be working for a company for women.” said Shamcey during the press conference at Salon de Ning, Manila Peninsula.

When Shamcey was asked if the thought of winning 3rd runner-up in the 2011 Miss Universe has finally sunk in, she answered, “I don’t think I’ll ever get over it kasi even winning Binibining Pilipinas, it hasn’t sunk it at all.”

“And now, Miss Universe came, I still feel the same. Maybe that’s why it has never sunk in yet.”

“And as I have said, how people treat me, that’s the only thing that has changed. Pero me as a person, me at home, it’s still the same Shamcey that most of my friends and my family know.”

Definitely, the endorsement deal with Avon is just one the many endorsement deals to come. We hope to see more of Shamcey soon in TV commercials and magazines.

Did Joey and Willie finally call it quits? Was the controversial Louis Vuitton bag which Willie gave as a gift to Joey a proof that they are already indeed in good terms with each other?

TV hosts and comedians, Joey de leon and Willie Revillame, have been exchanging blatant remarks against each other on air ever since the latter’s former show, Wowowee, collided head-on with the other TV network’s noon time show Eat Bulaga.

Obviously, they were trying to compare each other’s show and each one is trying to prove to the audience which noon time TV program receives the higher rating.

In a September 17 episode of Startalk, co-host Lolit Solis handed over a brown paper bag to her fellow host, Joey de leon. Inside the brown paper bag was an expensive Louis Vuitton bag given by the Wil Time Big Time host, Willie Revillame. The said bag was bought in Macau where Willie recently went for a trip with his Wil Time Big Time stuff and friends via Willie’s private jet plane, Wil Sky.

Accordingly, Willie sent an invitation to Joey through his friend Lolit Solis to join with him in Macau. However, the Eat Bulaga’s TV host thought it was some sort of a joke.

“Akala ko kasi nagbibiro, tsaka kagagaling lang naming dun. Kararating lang din namin… Siguro, someday,” said Joey.

In an interview with Joey by PEP last Monday, September 26, the Eat Bulaga host said “Oo, pinasalamatan ko na siya. Maganda, maganda,”

“Ang sabi nga niya, meron din siya. Dalawa raw [binili niya], tig-iisa daw kaming dalawa raw, para maalala ko siya.”

“Sabi ko nga, ‘O, ikaw pa, kahit naman ano, mahirap kang kalimutan!”

Meanwhile, right before the segment ended, Joey again thanked Willie for the gift. He added by saying,

“Uli, Willie, thank you ulit doon sa regalo mo.”

“Maganda, e, dahil may koneksiyon doon sa isang bagay sa akin, e. Thank you, pare,” said Joey.

Joey and Willie are both under the TV 5 Kapatid Network. Joey is the host of the show Celebrity Samurai which airs every Sunday morning while Willie Revillame is the host of Wil Time Big Time.
