Miss Universe 2015, Pia Wurtzbach, turned into fangirl mode when she met bestselling author Lang Leav a couple of days ago.
The beauty queen,model, actress and tv host was beaming happily beside the celebrated writer, in a picture she shared with her followers on Instagram.
Fangirling!! You guys have no idea how happy I was to finally meet @langleav last night. I’m a big fan of her work. Her books kept me company during my time in NYC.
I remember always trying to pre-order everything I could. I’m also a huge fan of @michaelfaudet and I was privileged enough to speak to him briefly on the phone to say hi (and fangirl some more ?).
I’m just so happy! Thank you, Lang for being so nice and sharing some advice and words of wisdom ? I wish you more success and I hope you touch the lives of many other readers like me. Maraming salamat!
Also a big thank you to National Bookstore, Metro Magazine, the ABSCBN publishing team and Mama J for making this happen for me.
She said that she had always been a big fan of Lang and tried to “pre-order everything” she could when she was in New York.
Pia also had a chance to talk briefly on the phone with Lang Leav’s husband, Michael Faudet, who is also a popular writer.
The 26-year old said that Lang’s books kept her company during her time at the Big Apple.
It could be recalled that during her reign as Miss Universe, Pia stayed in New York most of the time. She also had a short-lived romance with Dr. Mikhail Varshavski or Dr. Mike while she was there.
Lang was in the Philippines to promote her first novel, Sad Girls. She had a book signing at SM Cebu on June 24 and at Glorietta 1 in Manila, last June 25.
Famous for her books like Love & Misadventure, Memories, Lullabies, and The Universe of Us, Lang is a big star among bookworms and celebrities in the Philippines. She consistently draws big crowds for her book signings and people scream her name in adulation.
She had also written a poem about one of the country’s hottest love teams, AlDub, and gave it as a Valentine’s gift to Maine Mendoza (aka Yaya Dub) last year. Maine is a Lang Leav fanatic who has constantly praised the works of the bestselling author.
