Earlier this year, we referred to Bianca Peralta as a babe who we think has the looks to make it in showbiz. Artistahin, kumbaga. Said observation gave us the idea to do a gallery of showbiz-bound FHM babes, one that included Erika Bacani, Kristine Santamena, and last month's FHM 100% Hottie, Monica Mendoza. Simply put, when a babe champions our inspiration for a day's worth of story, you know she's got something really good going on.
We obviously still think our 100% Hottie for the month of September is worthy of a showbiz break. We see her as someone who could potentially emulate Iwa Moto's success as a seductive contrabida. And if we were ever allowed to play out our inner talent managers, we just might have found our golden ticket to Alfie Lorenzo/Boy Abunda-level prominence (minus, of course, the "softness"). Bianca here also comes to us neck-deep in controversy (we'll get to that in a bit) and based on the new information we've uncovered from her, we reckon the tsismis won't stop soon.á
Read on and see what we mean. This might be the last time we'll ever have Bianca as raw and unadulterated...
How would you describe yourself in a nutshell?
My personality best describes the first two letters in my name – I’m bi, ha ha!
When did you discover that you're bisexual?
Nung high school kasi ako medyo tagilid na ako eh. Naa-attract ako sa girls na hindi lang typically, “Uy, ang ganda!” Parang gusto ko na agad i-take out. I’m more into female to female relationships eh. Nagkaroon ako ng girlfriend when I was 18 years old. Nasundan yun when I was 20 years old, umabot yun ng two years, love kasi talaga yun.
How many bisexual relationships have you had?
Three. Yung dalawa naging girlfriend ko. Yung isa hindi.
Are you the type who makes the first move?
Minsan sila yung nag-i-initiate kasi once na nakipag-flirt ako sa girl ayaw nila kasi na-i-intimidate sila sa kin, mukha daw akong babae. Hindi sila naniniwala. Kapag type ko ang isang girl tahimik lang ako, pero kapag fini-flirt ko trip lang yun.
But are you generally open about your sexual preference?
Minsan discreet din ako, pero hindi naman ako totally lesbian – nagka-boyfriend din ako. Pero once na nagkaroon ako ng affection sa girl…pak!
Based on experience, are girls generally better lovers?
Depende sa feelings and affection, kung kanino ako mas tinamaan. Hindi lang naman kapag babae.
Do you find more satisfaction in dating women?
May situations na ganun. Masarap kasing ma-in love sa girl kasi alam nila yung feelings mo. Ang hirap i-explain! Sweetness is my weakness. Kapag sa guy mas gusto ko na nililigawan ako. Kapag sa girl minsan ako yung nanliligaw kasi parang ako yung lalake.
What do you look for in a girl?
Mahilig ako sa face value. Kahit hindi ganun ka-sexy basta may face! Magaganda yung mga naging girlfriend ko before. Meron akong ex na naging part-time model din.
How's it like hitting the sack with a fellow hottie?
Mas gusto ko siya yung satisfied. Kapag nakikita kong satisfied siya, okay na din ako. Before yung naging girlfriend ko, gusto niya i-try na siya naman ang gagawa ng move when it comes to making love, pero ayoko – gusto ko na ako yung ume-effort. Pero sa guy mas gusto ko na sila ang gumagawa ng paraan, ha ha!
Can you at least admit na mas okay pa rin kapag lalake?
Siyempre sa guy pa din! Kasi kapag sa girl typical lang eh. Hindi kami masyadong wild. Sa guy pa rin kasi gusto ko pa rin magkaroon ng family someday.
