LEGAZPI CITY — Former beauty queen and television host Miriam Quiambao, whose parents are both Bicolanos, visited on Wednesday children here who had been displaced by the restive Mayon Volcano and read them storybooks.

Not many people know that Quiambao, a first runner-up in the 1999 Miss Universe beauty pageant, has been advocating the causes of World Vision, a child-focused relief and development international organization, since April last year and has been one of its active supporters and volunteers since 2001.

Besides being World Vision’s ambassador on child labor conveying relevant issues to the media, Quiambao also finds time to immerse herself in relief operations despite her celebrity status.

Her Total Request: Talk!

MTV’s Susie Castillo will chat up the
stars at the Video Music Awards

Susie Castillo, of MTV’s ‘Total Request Live.’
<!– –>

In the world of music television, there’s dealing with fans totally requesting something live on the air – and then there’s dealing with celebrity antics behind the scenes of this Thursday’s Video Music Awards, broadcast live on MTV from Radio City Music Hall.

Susie Castillo ought to be able to handle it. The hot, 26-year-old host of the network’s popular countdown show, “Total Request Live,” will be stationed backstage for a simultaneous online version of the show, “Overdrive,” beginning at 8 p.m. on MTV.com, doing on-the-spot, streaming live interviews.

As the 22nd annual awards show – this year hosted by Jack Black – returns to New York after a few years in Miami, Castillo’s ready for anything.

“It’s going to be everything that happens behind the scenes,” she says. “It’s totally live! You really never know what’s going to happen. The artists have all been warned. Quite literally, I could be in the hallway talking about what’s been going on, and Beyoncé might be heading to the bathroom and I might stop her and ask her some questions!”

But the quick-thinking Castillo knows that ad-libbing is part of the fun. In fact, the bilingual Puerto Rican and Dominican Massachusetts native – who won the Miss USA crown in 2003 – claims acting as her first love. After guest roles on TV sitcoms like “Half & Half” and “My Wife and Kids,” she recently filmed her first movie part – as a reporter – in Disney’s upcoming live-action adaptation of the cartoon favorite “Underdog.”

For male model Jake Wall the best part about winning the first series of Torvill and Dean’s Dancing on Ice last night was that he didn’t get injured.

“How good is this?” asked the 23-year-old former carpenter following his victory.

“I’ve been lucky, I have only come off with a few bruises and scratches.”

The boyfriend of former Miss Universe and television presenter Jennifer Hawkins beat Today co-host Karl Stefanovic in an ice dance-off.

My big night with McNaught

SYDNEY schoolboy Jordan Avramides was “a bit bummed” when Jennifer Hawkins took up Bathurst lad Daniel Dibley’s invitation to go to a school formal.

Jordan had also written the beauty queen a letter but had been rejected because Hawkins had filming commitments.

Enter Hawko’s understudy, Miss Universe Australia 2006, Erin McNaught.

McNaught, 24, is now off to the Trinity Grammar School Year 10 formal in November as Jordan’s date – and the 16-year-old is “totally” stoked.

“I know her from the watching the news and seeing all the stuff about the photos,” Jordan said of the topless shoot which earned the Miss Universe contestant the nickname “McNaughty”.

“She’s cute. Let’s hope she’s a nice one too,” he said. “My mates are on the formal committee and they choose the tables so they’re loving it. Dad’s pretty happy too. He’s baggsed driving us there.”

The only hurdle was the girl he’d already invited before McNaught agreed to step in.

TV eyes off beauty

AUSTRALIA’S Miss World contestant is likely to return home to a television career after competing in the international pageant.

The Nine Network has already shown interest in 20-year-old Sabrina Houssami, and is believed to want her to join the travel show Getaway.

It scheduled several screen tests for the student before her departure for Poland to compete for the crown.

A Getaway gig would pit her against former Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins, who is a presenter on Channel 7’s The Great Outdoors.

“I would happily move into television if that opportunity arises, although I would also want to complete my university studies,” Ms Houssami told The Sunday Telegraph.

The Miss World pageant, which traditionally has a theme involving world peace, will take on even more meaning for Ms Houssami, a Muslim Australian whose family was affected by the recent violence in the Middle East.

“Some of my family were caught up in the recent fighting,” she said.
