Brazilian model Daiana Menezes never expected to become famous when she auditioned to be one of the co-hosts in Eat Bulaga! She was based in Shanghai, China when a fellow ramp model informed her about it.
Upon arriving here, the 22-year-old TV personality instantly fell in love with the Philippines. So in love, in fact, that she wanted to stay here for good.
"You know, I've been around, I've been in different countries. This is the place that, when I arrived here, it felt like I'm home," she told Cosmo.ph.
She also mentioned, "Although Brazil is exactly at the opposite side [of the world], I found another Brazil in the other side of the world. The people are so nice. Everything is good about the Philippines. I have nothing to complain about and it was so easy for me to adjust. I really plan to stay here for good if I can."
Aside from Shanghai, Daiana has also been to Korea, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
During our chat with the TV star (she also has a show in TV5, My Darling Aswang, where she plays Vic Sotto's love interest), she had a huge Louis Vuitton bag slung over her shoulder. When we asked about it, she told Cosmo.ph that it was a gift from the owners of Baliwag Lechon Manok. She said she would never buy a bag that costs P70,000. "That's too expensive! I'd rather buy more important things than a bag!" she exclaimed.
