Beauty Gonzales of Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus celebrated her 18th birthday last May 28, 2009 at Torre Venezia in Quezon City. The masquerade party was attended by family and friends who came all the way from Cebu and Dumaguete.
After the masquerade dance number by the Foxy Ladies, the debutante entered the ballroom in a purple beaded gown by Wendel Quisido. Friends Nicole Uysiusieng, Linda Backlund, Jessy Mendiola, Empress Schuck, and Kim Chiu shared funny stories with the guests before handing their gifts to Beauty. Beauty’s Tayong Dalawa co-stars Gerald Anderson and Jake Cuenca started her off on her dance. Aside from PBB Teen 2’s Ejay Falcon, Alex Anselmuccio, Josef Elizalde, and Mikan Ong and Gigger boys Arron Villaflor, Chris Gutierrez, Dino Imperial, AJ Perez, and Robi Domingo were also part of the dance. Aldred Gatchalian, John James Uy, Xian Lim, and Jon Avila also danced with the debutante. Beauty’s last dance was with her father, Manuel Gonzalez, which became an emotional moment that night.
Fellow Star Magic artists Kitkat and Melissa Ricks hosted the event. Bugoy Drilon and Richard Poon serenaded the debutante, who personally requested the two singers for her party. A surprise AVP featured some friends and relatives who couldn’t make it to the party. Also part of the surprise was the video message of Beauty’s mother, Carina Gonzalez.
After the debutante’s toast lead by Beauty’s father, the main program ended and the guests proceeded to party all night. “Like what my invitation says, Only once does a girl turn eighteen and I made sure that this is going to be a memorable night not just for me but also for everyone. I won’t forget this night for the rest of my life. Thank you very much who took time to celebrate with me,” Beauty said.
