1 After weeks of silence, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach finally talks about the issues concerning her and boyfriend, Marlon Stockinger—who was recently revealed to be the father of model Kit Barraquias’ twin children. "I just continue on working. Alam ko na it's really part of the job. Sometimes you get a lot of stones thrown at you, but that's how it is.

Go, Human Nature!
