REIGNING Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach is no longer a member of “Team Sawi,” as the Filipina beauty queen is apparently dating Mikhail “Doc Mike” Varshavski, who was named the “Hottest Doctor Alive” by People magazine in 2015.
Initially, the two met last month and the 26-year-old Filipino-German beauty diffused rumors that they are romantically involved. In fact, during an earlier Facebook Live session, Pia told her fans that she was not dating anyone.
“No, there’s no specific someone in my life,” she said and then added, while holding onto her sash, “This is the specific someone. This is the priority.”
However, a fan was able to get an earlier screen grab of Pia’s relationship status on her Facebook account from “Single” to “In A Relationship with Mikhail Varshavski.” (The status update has since been deleted).
Still, a series of intimate selfies was by the couple was posted on Twitter and Instagram, as well as snaps that were uploaded on Snapchat. Finally, the New York-based doctor admitted to a Hollywood-based celebrity website over the weekend that he is, indeed, dating Pia.
“I am dating Pia,” he told Wonderwall. “It’s a fairly new relationship but I’m really excited to see where it can go!”
Although our Miss Universe tried to keep mum about what’s going on with her personal life, she at last gave in during an interview with Mario Lopez on “Extra.”
Pia, together with Miss USA 2015 Olivia Jordan, were asked by the host about their love life.
With a little prodding about whether there is a “Mr. Universe” in her life, Pia simply said, “I’m dating.”
The Divine Diva Zsa Zsa Padilla is back into acting via ABS-CBN’s newest teleserye, “The Story of Us,” with Xian Lim and Kim Chiu. The singer/actress plays Kim’s estranged mother, who left her family to find a better life in New York.
Xian and Kim, one of the hottest love teams in the Philippines today, were also thrilled to be back, after the latter’s hiatus from TV for a year.
“The Story of Us” is a story of two people destined for each other, but fate and life situations forced them to be apart. In the series, their love will be tested through distance, trials and differences. It is also a cinematographer’s dream, as part of the series was filmed on the beautiful island of El Nido, Palawan and in New York.
