Ma. Isabel Lopez Has Forgiven Myrna Sese Panlilio
Now that Miss Philippines Universe 1964 Myrna Sese Panlilio died of cardiac arrest the other day, the incident involving her fellow Miss Philippines Universe (Binibining Pilipinas) alumna, Ma. Isabel Lopez, at the last edition of Binibining Pilipinas is once again a hot discussion.
Ma. Isabel, who represented Philippines at the Miss Universe 1982, lashed out at the beauty contest organizer last March 2009 when she received mistreatment from them. It was reported that Ma. Isabel was forced to leave the pageant for attending it without an invitation. And who did it?
It was Myrna Panlilio who told her to leave the venue and who apparently called the security guards to escort her to the exit door. The reason why Ma. Isabel was barred was apparently because of her sexy image during the 1980's.
But with the death of Myrna, Ma. Isabel said in an interview that she had already forgiven the dead beauty queen.
Speaking sadly, Ma. Isabel said that "she respected and understood what she had to do at that time".
"I pray for her soul. I am sure she's happy now with the Lord."
