Former Bb. Pilipinas-World Maggie Wilson defended her and fiancé Victor Consunji’s sexy pre-wedding video against critics. "Everyone’s entitled to his or her own opinion. You can’t please everybody. At the end of the day, it’s my video, not theirs. So if they can’t take the heat, then don’t watch it!" she told PEP.ph in an article posted December 8. She said 95 percent of the online comments about the viral video on Vimeo are "good."
She says the video was a birthday gift to the couple from makeup artist Xeng Zulueta. Wedding videographer Jason Magbanua and Zulueta conceptualized it, but it was real estate scion Consunji who particularly wanted the sexy concept.
Wilson told PEP.ph, "We wanted to revolutionize wedding videos. (Almost all nuptial videos) look cute and sweet; we wanted to do something different. Yung nakakaintriga talaga..."And then, the original reaction that we wanted to get from the people is we want to make them feel uncomfortable."
Wilson added that her parents, and Consunji’s as well, have watched the video. "They loved it."
The couple’s three-day wedding will start on December 18 at the Misibis Bay Resort in Bicol. Wilson told PEP.ph that they will have 180 guests including celebrities Ruffa and Raymond Gutierrez, Miriam Quiambao, Rovilson Fernandez, Bubbles Paraiso, Brent Javier, Lara Quigaman, Bianca Manalo, Bianca King, Karen Pamintuan, Sib Sibulo and JM Rodriguez. Vice President Jejomar Binay is one of their sponsors.
Marc Nelson and Joey Mead will host the celebration, while DJs Mars Miranda and Manolet Dario plus Sinosikat will perform at the wedding. The entourage is studded with beauty queens such as Miss Philippines Earth 2009 Sandra Seifert and Bb. Pilipinas Universe 2007 Teresa Licaros.
