It’s been a a long time that the Kapamilya’s and the Kapuso’s dominate the cover for FHM Philippines, but this time, for the number 1 men’s magazine in the Philippines, it’s now the Kapatid’s turn to join the sexy cover bandwagon.
The newest addition to FHM Philippines long-list of first-timers (to pose sexy in a magazine) is TV5 Primetime Princess Ritz Azul. She is poised to become every man’s fantasy come to life as she poses for FHM’s November issue. Donning a very revealing lace bodysuit for the magazine’s cover, the 18-year-old actress sizzles in her first ever sexy pictorial. The self-proclaimed probinsiyana oozes with a mixture of charming naivete and sexiness that only comes natural to Ritz.
While Ritz Azul is proud and delighted with how her photo shoot turned out, the young star admitted that posing for a men’s magazine was no easy feat.
“Siyempre po kabado ako,” Ritz Azul shared. “Hindi maalis sa akin ‘yun. Pero marami namang tumutulong sa akin kaya lumalakas din yung loob ko [during the shoot].”
Ritz Azul, who won fourth runner up in TV5’s former talent search Star Factor, made her acting debut in the primetime series Nagbabagang Bulaklak in 2011. That same year, Ritz Azul bagged the Outstanding Breakthrough Performance by an Actress from the ENPRESS Golden Screen TV Awards and the Amazing Female Newcomer from Yahoo! Philippines OMG Awards. It was also in Nagbabagang Bulaklak where Ritz Azul inadvertently attracted a slew of male fans including FHM’s stable of editors and writers. The editors of the popular magazine admitted that Ritz Azul’s name have always come up in their list of cover girls. And now they are over the moon to have finally featured her as the magazine’s muse-of-the-month since it’s been a while since FHM featured a “debutante” on the cover.
After starring alongside Lorna Tolentino in the soap series Glamorosa, Ritz Azul is faced with another challenge as she stars in TV5’s first superhero drama Kidlat opposite hunk Derek Ramsay.
