Maricar Reyes: Women’s Health Philippines November 2009 Cover Girl

Women’s Health Philippines features Maricar Reyes on its November 2009 cover as the ‘Star on the Rise.’

Maricar really earns to be here in this mag, not only that she has great slim body but she really represents an inspiring story. After her share of dark ages with the almost unending sex video scandal with Dr. Hayden Kho, she manages or rather fought her way out of such misery. Good thing though is when ABS-CBN did also their part of helping her pick it up. They gave her a Maala-ala Mo Kaya episode, the Precious Hearts Presents: Bud Brothers and even a Your Song episode. She’s pretty much an eye stunner, too with her role in Lovers in Paris together with KC Concepcion and Piolo Pascual.

Inside the mag you’ll find Burn More Fat! Your Slim-down Shopping List, the Eat Smarter, Live Longer part telling you the The Truth About The Food You Eat and the 63 Small Changes with Big Results. Also, they inserted a bit foxy feature on Secrets To Your Best Sex Ever: Try Them Tonight! (maybe just not with a secret cam on, i guess… ;))
