Get ready loves, tomorrow I will be announcing big news, it's time to be honest and speak facts.

What did she mean by tea?
A couple of hours before Sandra Lemonon posts, one Diemmy Alexi Tatlonghari, a former volleyball athlete, alleged that some of the contestants in the pageant had their make up artists despite the new rules concerning the pandemic. According to reports, there were restrictions on the use of makeup and hair personnel. This was because of the need to observe health protocols during the pandemic.
Tatlonghari went further to state that she was speaking up about the 'glam team' and that she was not bitter in any way.
Did Rabiya Mateo deserve the win?
There are allegations that Mateo knew about the questions before Miss Universe pageant Philippines. However, Albert Andrada, Miss Universe Philippines board director, refuted the claims stating that the contestants were on the bus before they went on stage.
During an interview with MJ Marfori of TV5, Mateo defended herself and turned emotional stating that she chooses to be the bigger person in the situation. She said,
To be honest, maybe because I wasn’t a frontrunner, so people didn’t expect me to win.
But I know that I did everything and anything that I could during that night.
