Rich Asuncion is one of the most beautiful ladies from the well-known talent search in the country, Starstruck. She won as First Princess in Starstruck: The Next Level on 2007.
On 2009, she was crowned as first runner-up at the Binibining Pilipinas pageant.
In a grand press conference for The Millionaire’s Wife on March 2016. Rich Asuncion revealed that a rich admirer that is older than her gave her an expensive gift.
“May isa lang, yung parang nakilala ko lang sa birthday party ng kapitbahay ko.
“’Tapos biglang the day after, biglang nag-iwan ng kotse!
“Iniwan sa guard. Sabi, ‘Ma’am, may iniwan po na kotse si sir,’ ganyan.
“’Tapos siyempre, hindi ko naman…‘Uy, ibalik mo ‘yan sa kanya!’
“Hindi ko ginamit, noh! Kahit nagta-taxi pa ako dati, ayokong tanggapin, kasi nga…”
Rich thought that time that there is no man that will give an expensive gift to a lady without expecting anything in return. She also said that the guy who sent that gift to her didn’t call or message her.
“Hindi. Wala, walang ganun.
“’Tapos, may nagpapadala ng mga fudam [food], siyempre, ayokong kainin, baka may ano…
“May mga bulaklak, ganun.”
She also said that she didn’t use the car even once and she didn’t know what the guard did to that expensive gift.
“Ay, hindi ko talaga ginamit, hindi!”.
“Ah, bahala sila, basta.”
Rich Asuncion also recalled that she didn’t receive any expensive gift when she became a beauty queen and only remembered was that guy who gave her a car when she was starting her career.
“A, wala iyon, promise!
“Iyon lang talaga yung naaalala ko, yung nag-iwan ng kotse.”
She also said that she came from a poor family that’s why she wasn’t tempted to accept the car.
“Dyusko, ako pa ba? E, galing ako sa mababa, di ba?”
