Talent5 muse Ritz Azul made an impact when she was tapped to topbill TV5’s Mga Nagbabagang Bulaklak, and she has an award to prove it – Yahoo OMG’s Female Amazing Newcomer.
The awarding was made last Tuesday night, June 21, at the Republiq Bar in Resorts World.
Asked what she feels about the award, Ritz said: "Amazing! Amazing talaga! Nagpapasalamat po ako sa Yahoo! OMG!, at sa mga supporters na bumoto sa akin. Sobrang blessed ako. I want to thank God of course.
"Kanina nung tinanggap ko yung award na 'to sobrang nanginginig yung tuhod ko, nanginginig yung kamay ko, sobrang lamig!," she added
Supporting Ritz in this momentous event are her TV5 and Talent5 families represented by Perci Intalan and Audie Gemora, respectively.
“I am very proud of Ritz,” says Audie. “This lady (Ritz) will go a long, long way pa. This award is very inspiring not just to Ritz, but also to the whole Talent5 and TV5 family.”
Ritz bested talents from rival networks by topping the online poll in the category.
With her pretty face and refreshing demeanor, the young TV actress and commercial model easily grabbed the attention of people present, including Aljur Abrenica, who became Ritz’ instant companion for the evening.
Meanwhile, everyone in the venue noticed that she and Kapuso hunk Aljur Abrenica were inseparable that night. Does this mean that there's something good brewing between them and she is now Aljur's special someone?
"Sobra naman yung apple of the eye. Hindi naman ganun. He was very nice to me. And being a newcomer na hindi pa sanay sa mga showbiz events, I am happy na parang inalalayan din ako ni Aljur," she said.
