Byline: KAYE VILLAGOMEZ
Young actress Melissa Ricks vowed never to go sexy and trail the footsteps of her contemporary Roxanne Guinoo who posed in a two-piece red-hot bikini for whisky billboard along EDSA in Quezon City. This, the ABS-CBN star intimated to Manila Bulletin Tuesday night at her mother network's compound.
"For one, I'm only 17. No way talaga," she firmly declared.
Ricks, who just turned 17 on Jan. 9 explained she has nothing against young actresses like Guinoo, Jennylyn Mercado, Katrina Halili, and even Sandara Park posing sexy for billboards and magazines.
"It's their decision and they are of age. I'm just not ready for it. All I know is that if someone asks me to pose sexy right now, I will say no," she stressed.
The five-foot-seven half American stunner however, said she might join beauty contests in the near future. "Yes, I might do that maybe if I still get taller--about five-foot-nine."
Ricks also denied getting tangled in a real-life love triangle with "Pedro Penduko" co-star Matt Evans and another ABS-CBN talent Olyn Miemban. "Sa TV lang po yon. But if I were to choose for a partner as in love team partner, okay na si Matt."
Ricks is part of ABS-CBN's January celebrants whom the network presented to the entertainment media recently. The other January-born celebrities are Celine Lim (Jan. 10) who played the young Kim Chiu in "Sana Maulit Muli;" Bentong (Jan. 12); Juddha Paolo (Jan. 20); Jason Abalos (Jan. 20); Nikki Valdez (Jan. 25); and "Pinoy Big Brother" Teen Edition's Mikee Lee who also turned 17 last Jan. …
