Her feisty and a bit boyish nature earned her the moniker “The Rebellious Beauty ng Dumague City” when she joined Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition in 2008. Looking closely, Beauty’s fire is sparked by her strong candor and her natural ability to keep it real.
In an appearance for the online talk show “I Feel U,” Beauty updated her fans on her recent quarantine happenings. Of course, the Crisologo family isn’t exempted from the sudden bite of the kitchen bug. But now that the community quarantine was relaxed a bit, Beauty and husband Norman Crisologo are into fitness again, plus their daughter Olivia is starting to get busy with schooling.
The lockdown helped Beauty and Norman strengthen their marriage, despite the occasional fights. Wide age gap in a relationship is still tainted with a social stigma until these days. Yet, beauty looks at their 15-year age gap as an advantage to keeping their relationship balanced and happy. She said Norman’s patience and wisdom are a big help in sustaining their union.
Getting a hold of the lead star status she has today has never been easy. Beauty had to start doing supporting roles or mostly sidekick characters before she landed the likes of iconic Romina Mondragon in Kadenang Ginto. But Beauty didn’t mind, and as long as she has a role to portray, she will always give it her best. “There are no small parts or small actors. Kahit maliit ang role mo, kailangan ibigay mo talaga ‘yung todo. Natutuwa nga ako na best friend ako.”
At that point of the interview, host Toni Gonzaga shared that she was impressed with Beauty’s talent when they filmed “Starting Over Again” in 2014. Toni even remembered Beauty as an honest woman who was never scared to speak her thoughts.
“I just work hard in everything I do. I give my best one hundred percent. Siguro dahil binigay ko lahat kaya nahanap ko kung nasaan ako ngayon,” said Beauty. She added that besides hard work, being true to herself and a bit of luck brought her to where she is today. “Malaking bagay ‘yung pagiging totoo kasi kung hindi ko totoo sa sarili mo, then you are not happy. Isa lang naman ang goal I, I want to be happy.”
Beauty was also asked about her friendship with fellow Bisaya and Kapamilya actress Ellen Adarna. She revealed that it was Ellen who introduced her to Norman while the latter served as the bridge between Ellen and John Lloyd Cruz.
