Veteran showbiz columnist Cristy Fermin made these comments about netizens saying Jinkee Pacquiao resembles Kristine Hermosa in her latest magazine cover.
Jinkee, the wife of boxing icon and senator Manny Pacquiao, recently graced the cover of luxury magazine for the month of September where she wore creations by Filipino fashion designer Oliver Tolentino.
In the Wednesday episode of her daily radio show Cristy Fer Minute, Cristy aired her honest thoughts on the perceived likeness of Jinkee to Kristine from the magazine shoot.
“Siguro naman ay hindi ‘yon sinadya ni Aling Jinkee. Dahil kahit ano naman siguro ang gawin niya, isubsob pa niya sa ulo niya mukha niya, hindi niya makakahawig si Kristine Hermosa,” said Cristy.
Cristy claimed that Jinkee had to undergo the knife “to look beautiful”.
“Dahil si Kristine, tunay, organic, walang operasyon, ‘di ba? Eh si Jinkee alam naman natin kung ano pinagdaanan ng kanyang kagandahang pinanghahawakan ngayon. If you want to look beautiful, go to Belo.
“’Di ba, gano’n? At talaga namang naging kliyente siya ni Dra. Vicki Belo at naging endorser pa nga ng isang produkto,” she added.
Cristy then recalled a time when she interviewed Jinkee in her home and noticed changes that the latter had after supposedly undergoing cosmetic procedures.
“Nakakapanibago kasi nandun ‘yung kakambal niya eh, siyempre magkokompara ka. ‘Di ba nung makilala mo sila magkamukhang magkamukha sila. Ngayon, lutang na lutang na ‘yung ibang ganda ni Jinkee. Kasi nga dumaan na kasi siya sa maraming retoke or enhancement.
She continued, “Hindi naman siguro niya sinasadya na maging kamukha siya ni Kristine Hermosa. Hindi niya talaga magiging kamukha ang isang taong walang opera. Magkakaiba talaga. So, itong si Jinkee ‘di ba nagpabago na nga siya ng kung anu-anong bahagi ng mukha niya pati katawan niya. Napansin lang ‘yun dahil sa cover niya.
“Ang ganda ganda ni Kristine Hermosa lalo na kapag walang makeup. Nasubaybayan namin siya sa Star Magic lagi namin siyang nakikita so alam namin na walang binago, walang in-enhance sa kanya.
“Si Jinkee nga ang tapang tapang ng mukha eh, mukha siyang maldita. Kahit na na ngumingiti siya, talagang matapang talang very strong ang kanyang itsura, kahit hindi strong, charot.”
She previously received bashing from some critics, including Cristy for “showing off” her luxurious life on social media.
But in her latest Instagram post, she said she will not be defined by what other people say about her.
Cristy, however, drew flak from fans as well for her comments on the socialite.
Jinkee, on the other hand, has been perceived by netizens as indirectly responding to the criticisms with cryptic posts and quotes on her Instagram account.
In her latest Instagram post, Jinkee said she will not be defined by other people’s perceptions of her.
“God made you to be you. He has a plan for your life, and it’s a perfect plan. If you’re going to become all you can be, you have to refuse to be defined by others.”
