In The Case Of Vice Ganda, Beauty Comes From Inner Joy

MANILA, Philippines - The blessings just continue to pour on Vice Ganda's lap as he was recently ''Belofied,'' meaning, he is now a member of the Belo Medical Group (BMG). He was given a warm welcome/press conference presided over by Cristalle Henares at Annabel's Morato.

Cristalle said, ''We at BMG are very happy to have Vice Ganda with us. We all know Vice's ability to make people smile or laugh. Ang kagandahan ay galing sa kaligayahan at saludo kami kay Vice for his ability to put smiles in everyone's faces in all his performances.''

The ''Showtime'' and ''Gandang Gabi Vice'' host said, ''I've always had very oily skin. That has been my biggest problem and frustration. I often have to get retouched every commercial break to control the oil. So this is my priority, and it has always been my dream to have a smooth, even, flawless complexion. I believe that dream will come true here in Belo.''

On his thoughts about plastic surgery, he said, ''I have nothing against it. When I feel that the time comes that I'll need it, I won't think twice about doing it. Appearance is as important as a good performance.''
