Yes, a very proud mom ang kaibigang Melanie Marquez nang mapanood niya for the first time ang bunsong anak nila ng dating action star na si Derek Dee na rumampa sa recent Bench show na isinagawa sa Black Bird @ The Nielsen Tower in Makati.
Stunning ang height ni Michelle Dee just like her mom. The girl is 5 feet and 10 and a half inches and is only 20 years old. Hindi pangkaraniwang taas para sa isang Pinay.
Pero knowing her Mom, hindi nalalayo na ang beauty ni Michelle ay mixture ng ganda ng ina at ang pagka-Chinese looking nito ay mana sa ama.
Ang recent show ni Michelle for Bench was her first. Ang gusto nga ng Bench big boss na si Mr. Ben Chan, aside from modelling, pasukin din ni Michelle ang mga beauty pageant.
Ayon kay “Nene”, tawag namin kay Melanie Marquez, “Ben Chan like her to be a beauty queen one day but she need to be train first and foremost to overcome stage fright.
“Derek is very much aware of her daughter’s decision to be a model. We’re actually proud of her. She chose to work and be independent.
“She goes to school in La Salle Taft, taking up Psychology. Michelle is still naive with her beauty, which is good. She’s very much grounded and know full well her priorities in life,” kuwento ng kaibigang Melanie sa amin.
When we asked her kung type ni Michelle mag-showbiz like acting or hosting, “As of the moment, hindi pumapasok sa isip niya na mag-artista. For now, she just wanted to be a model,” say ng proud na ina.
