Despite the jubilant and well-deserved welcome we gave TV5 soap star Ritz Azul on her debut cover, a few apologies must be made to this gorgeously fresh stunner. Ritz, we’re sorry for making you shoot your first-ever sexy cover on an unexpectedly rainy day. If only we had enough pull with God we would have asked Him to stave it off a bit, ‘cause surely an angel like you shouldn’t be made to shiver in the damp.
We’re also sorry for having to make you earn your Starbucks frappuccino—although the sight of you relishing it after a long day of work was definitely a sight to behold. Lastly, Ritz, we’re sorry we couldn’t stop staring at you the whole time you worked your magic in front of the camera; we’re not creepy lechers, swear.
But what we’re not sorry for is the fact that you are the opposite of everything your name connotes. We love that you’re young and not jaded, simple and not glamorous, and that you are so very promising, yet so very humble that the sight of leftover brownies brings out the sweetest of smiles. But for the rest of our apologies, allow us to make it up to you. Another cover shoot, perhaps?
In honor of our beautiful and curvaceous cover star whose sweetness just wants us to right all the wrongs in the world, the November issue is filled with everything that can make you a better man: act like a stud at any age; the better way to sleep, bathe, and even take a dump; the best pulutan to shove down your throat; and why we’ll never, ever, take on the paranormal ever again. All things to make us men version 2.0—and thus deserving of Ritz Azul’s approving smile.
