Dr. Vicki Belo plays fairy godmother to Betty La Fea

What happens when Doctor to the Stars Vicki Belo comes face to face with Betty Pengson? Well, that’s what fans of the top rating series I Love Betty La Fea are waiting with baited breath for.

With Betty (Bea Alonzo) dreaming of revenge towards Armando Solis (John Lloyd Cruz) by winning a free cosmetic surgery package in a “beauty” contest, who else would be perfect to play godmother to TV’s ugly duckling but Dra. Belo herself. “This was the idea of Deo (Endrinal, Business Unit Head of I Love Betty La Fea).  Ever since the beginning of the teleserye alam niyang may papasok na doctor na magpapaganda kay Betty.  Sabi niya sa akin ‘Ikaw na ang magiging doctor!’ So thank you kay Deo at palagi niya akong naiisip.  Ito lang naman din ang kaya ko to play myself on screen. Hindi ako marunong umarte (laughs).  But I’m open to new experiences like kung paano mag-deliver ng lines.  Most of the time kailangan mo ulitin because of the mistakes,” Dra. Vicki happily shared to ABS-CBN.com during her first taping day on the show.

Being in a profession that values precision and perfection, Dr. Vicky was very critical of her own performance in the scene she did with Bea Alonzo, Pooh, and Candy Pangilinan.  “I’m very stiff and nervous when I was delivering my lines because it’s not something I am used to.  But enjoy naman siya because now I know Betty is the most supportive co-actor because when you’re talking to her mafi-feel mo talaga ‘yung emotions.  Ngayon ko lang naintindihan ‘yung meaning ng ‘supportive co-actor’ because they really coached me, sina Bea, Pooh, and Candy.”

The famous cosmetic surgeon confessed that she herself felt what it’s like to be in Betty’s shoes.  “That’s why I became a cosmetic surgeon.  When I was young I was very fat.  I used to weigh a hundred pounds when I was a kid.  All my life I was fat so I saw how people treat you differently because you’re mataba.  Nung teenager pa ako ang dami ko pang taghiyawat sa mukha.  Every week akong pumupunta sa dermatologist.  Doon ko pinlano kung anong gagawin ko sa buhay ko.  I’m going to make people with bad skin look better, make fat people skinny.  You will only live this life once and if you’re going to live it mas maigi na ‘yung maganda kaysa pangit.”

When asked what she would advice people who are considering going under the knife, Dra. Belo said it is important for them to invest in a very good surgeon.  “If I were them I would save all my money and then go to a very good doctor the first time.  Ang nangyayari kasi kadalasan is kapag kulang ng pera pupunta sila sa doctor na bago, wala masyadong experience, mas mura.  Nasisira tuloy.  The best thing is i-save niyo na lang ‘yung pera ninyo then pumunta na kayo sa magaling na doctor.”
