PBA courtside reporter Erika Padilla is FHM's cover girl this June! As far as magazine covers go, this one deserves the MVP nod, don't you think?
A recap of our June muse's many talents: Erika is artistahin enough to make it in showbiz; enough of a bombshell to join a swimsuit pageant (Slimmer's Miss Bikini Philippines 2008, where she won Miss Photogenic! #precedent); eloquent enough to write for FHM.com.ph; flexible enough to practice high-level Yoga; sporty enough to cover the game of basketball; and best of all, woman enough to be on the cover of this magazine!
Congratulations, Erika! Has it sunk in yet?
"When you say FHM cover, it's not just about being sexy, or baring your body," she explains. "It's also about establishing certain success. With this cover, I just want to somehow celebrate the humble success that I was able to achieve from being an actress transitioning to a sportscaster to a writer and all those."
Aside from hooking up with the nation's most charismatic sideline reporter, the many other awesome things we did in this month's issue include: ate a 65-inch pizza (which we found out wasn't so easy to do), compiled Senator Miriam's greatest hits, put a finger up our asses (for medical purposes, mind you), and took a look at the prettiest kicks available today, just to name a few.
FHM's June 2014 issue will be available in supermarkets, newsstands, and bookstores everywhere starting tomorrow, Friday, May 30. You can score digital copies through the FHM and Buqo apps, Zinio, and the Summit Newsstand a few days later.
