WATCH: Imelda Schweighart Blames Lack Of Filipino Support For Miss Earth Loss

Imelda Schweighart blamed the Filipinos for lack of support during her stint at the 16th Miss Earth pageant held on October 29 at the Mall of Asia Arena, Manila.

In an exclusive phone interview aired on “Tonight with Boy Abunda” on Thursday, Imelda said:

“I think what went wrong is that I lack support. Nobody like assisted me. Emotionally I’m drained from all the work and from not being myself. It’s just too much for me. I cannot be myself because you have to be this, you have to be that.”


She also explained the reason why she decided to resign as Miss Earth Philippines.

“I don’t want to be a bad example.I think, you know, I carry the name of Miss Philippines Earth. Sa nag-viral na video na yun, sabi ko, ‘Ang perception ko ng isang Miss Earth kasi is natural.’

“For me, natural beauty wins, personally, which is my right. I’m sorry. I know it was destined for her [Katherine Espin]. That’s bad, what is said there and it’s not a good example, like, I’m the mother of haters.

“So I didn’t want to be that — you know, encourage people to do the same.”

Imelda also send her message to her bashers.

“Whatever you say, bumabalik lang din naman sa inyo. Kasi whatever comes out from your mouth, that’s what you are. Mali yun, e.

“People have no right talaga to trample all my hard work since no bad side of me can destroy that… I have a bad and a good side. Every person has that. Stop acting like lahat kayo si Princess Sarah.”
