Betty La Fea Finally Meets the Beautiful Bea Alonzo

There was an episode before in I Love Betty La Fea where Betty was eager to see the 4G endorser Bea Alonzo in person but Hugo didn't permit Betty to go with him to the commercial shooting. Well, not so soon, Betty's dream to meet Bea Alonzo herself finally came true. However that rare encounter never happened in the actual series, as it was just a VTR Promo for 4G antioxidant product shown in ASAP '08, originally known as simply A.S.A.P. (All-Star Sunday Afternoon Party) is a Philippine noontime variety show aired every Sunday.
