Bb. Pilipinas hopeful struggles with nude pic scandal
Hopeful Bb. Pilipinas candidate Roxanne Cabanero denies she's the naked woman on pics circulating the web
It’s a tough time for Bb. Pilipinas hopeful Roxanne Cabanero as she was removed from the list of candidates after supposedly naked pictures of her circulated the internet. The ruckus started when a blogger pointed out the similarities between Cabanero and the female on the picture.
Cabanero fervently denies that she is the woman on the image during an interview with TV Patrol. According to the beauty queen hopeful her world started to crumble when she saw the pictures, especially since she is sure that the woman is not her.
The picture shows female wearing skimpy clothes or none at all – leading the Binibining Pilipinas Charities Incorporated to remove Cabanero from the list of official candidates.
Cabanero asks for consideration regarding the judgment, stating that being one of the contestants has always been a dream for her.
“It’s not easy to go [through] this process.” She says referring to the rigorous time she dedicated just to be one of the official candidates in the country’s most prestigious pageant. “Ang sakit” (It hurt’s) the beauty queen hopeful adds, hoping that the BPCI would conduct an investigation to settle the problem.
Cabanero then divulges that she has approached the BPCI and was asked by the lawyer to just drop from the case. The institution maintains that they are merely implementing the rules and regulations of Bb. Pilipinas.
“Bb. Pilipinas is governed by stringent rules and policies that are acceptable internationally.” As declared in a BPCI statement, continuing how the institution strives to be thorough when it comes to screening of the candidates and concludes that they will no longer discuss the issue in an effort to save the pageant’s integrity.
“We are hoping that all speculations regarding this incident will cease as BPCI is not inclined to delve into the issue any further.”
