After 8 years, “Chinita Princess” Kim Chiu and Kadenang Ginto star Beauty Gonzalez finally had the chance to catch up while they were in Rome, Italy.
While these two lovely actresses work in the same network, it appeared that it took them several years before they were able to spend time together due to their busy schedules and career.
On Kim’s Instagram account, she recently shared some photos of her and Beauty together with a mutual friend (@carlmerced), who was celebrating her birthday.
She wrote using their other language: “Reunited and it feels so good!!! After 8 years finally got the chance to catch up with @beauty_gonzalez grabe!!! Dugay na jud since last ta nag storya! Ambot sad ngano! Time flies so fast!!!! Super happy for you beauts!!!”
They both came from the South and shared a common mother tongue, Kim is from Cebu and Beauty hails from Dumaguete City.
Kim continued, “glad we had this time special thanks to ate @carlmerced. hehe, happy birthday, ate carl!!!”
Kim and Beauty both started their showbiz career after they were introduced as Pinoy Big Brother housemates in different seasons. Kimberly Sue Yap Chiu or simply Kim Chiu entered “Kuya’s” house on April 23, 2006. She was only 16 years old at the time.
During her PBB days, she was the only housemate who was never nominated for eviction. Eventually, she was named as the big winner in Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition 1.
Beauty or Christine Marie Gonzalez, on the other hand, was introduced in 2008 as one of the housemates of Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition Plus and was hailed as the 4th grand placer. For that season, Ejay Falcon, who also became an actor emerged as the big winner.
Aside from their PBB stints, Kim and Beauty used to be part of a celebrity circle of friends called “Chiurigogobashu.” Their “barkada” includes Melissa Ricks, Erich Gonzales, Kitkat, and Empress Schuck. But in 2011, this all-female group reportedly had a falling out.
