Michelle Dee and Rhian Ramos may be besties, but living together was something that took two years in the making.
The Miss Universe Philippines Tourism 2022 titleholder and the GMA-7 actress started living together in late September 2022, but the duo had been planning their big move since 2020.
Michelle revealed in an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), "Rhian and I, we've been planning siguro mga two years ago na.
"Dinadahan-dahan talaga namin yung process. Hindi naman ganun kabiglaan, di ba? But it's been so fun."
PEP.ph caught up with Michelle during Frontrow Cares and Tutok To Win Party List's repacking of relief goods for fire victims last October 9, 2022, Sunday.
The 27-year-old beauty queen also said moving in with Rhian was easy since they have known each other for so many years.
She explained, "Parang it feels so normal kasi bago pa kami mag-move in, magkasama na kami palagi. It just feels normal talaga. And ang saya, we're just a room away from each other na."

ADJUSTING TO THE NEW HOUSEHOLD
For Michelle, living under one roof with Rhian does not require too much adjustment. She said, "Halos wala nga, e. Hindi ko alam kung tama lang talaga yung chemistry naming dalawa to live together. Pero wala pa namang gulo, walang away kaya okay naman yung adjustment namin."
Michelle proudly revealed there aren't even any issues regarding the household chores, which are usually a source of conflict between housemates. She explained, "Kami ni Rhian, actually, mapagbigay kami. We really enjoy being of service. Kaya most of the time, parang nag-uunahan pa kami sa chores, kung sinong maghuhugas ng pinggan, kung sino yung magwawalis or magva-vacuum. I think it's... just initiative na lang. Kunyari, kapag may something na kailangan gawin sa harap mo, di ba?"
Perhaps their only adjustment is finding the right furniture and appliances for their home.
"I think, as of now, siyempre hindi pa ganun ka-complete yung mga furniture namin or whatnot. Kaya yun na lang yung mga hinihintay namin."
