Daiana Menezes Wants To Prove That Love And Career Don’t Clash


MANILA, Philippines— Daiana Menezes is engaged to Cagayan de Oro Rep. Jose Benjamin “Benjo” Benaldo but she isn’t about to slow down with her career as model, actress and endorser.
“Many people think that once you have a love life, once you get married, wala ka ng career. Hindi totoo yan. I think when you’re happier, the better you work,” she said when launched as endorser of Lady Grace, an intimate apparel and lingerie brand.

Despite being very busy (she is currently shooting “Sketch,” a film with Pinoy Hollywood director Ace Cruz, among other things), the Brazilian vixen said that the wedding preparations will begin middle of the year when her father’s work schedule eases up.

“Iba kasi ang kultura namin, yung father ang gumagastos at nagaayos ng kasal ng babae,” she said to that effect. “But I’m really looking forward to it because getting married would mean I’d be staying more in the Philippines.”

Recall that Daiana and Benjo became a couple just last year after her breakup with director GB Sampedro. Benjo proposed to her under the Eiffel Tower in Paris before flying to Brazil in order for the public servant to meet her parents.

Asked what she thinks about the amount of time it’s taking for the wedding to be underway, Daiana quipped, “We’re sure about each other---we don’t have to worry.”

Besides, Daiana is still hungry to level up her career in showbiz by growing as an artist. When asked if she regrets letting go of her stint on “Eat Bulaga” on which she enjoyed daily exposure, Daiana simply said:
“Fame doesn’t always mean happiness and success. I love them, they were a school for me and if not for them I won’t be here. But I want to improve in my craft and now I am able to do other things like acting, hosting, endorsement and movies.”

 Daiana is the first celebrity endorser of Lady Grace that’s actually been around for several decades now. The daughter of the company owner said that they picked Daiana for being a “timeless” beauty, one who is “beautiful, funny and confident.”

The model-actress is as impressed with the product and the owner’s passion to give women an affordable but quality option for lingerie in the market. Daiana said that she knew the owners were the real thing when, upon seeing her, they correctly told her what bra cup size to use just by looking at her.

“’Yung sa iba, they had to ask me kung ano yung size ko, but these people, they know their business well,” she said.

Lady Grace is available at these department stores: SM North Edsa, SM Megamall, SM Fairview, SM Makati, SM Fairview, SM Makati, SM Cubao, SM Bicutan, SM Sta Mesa, SM San Lazaro, SM Quiapo, SM Harrison, SM Taytay, SM Masinag, SM Southmall, SM Bacoor, SM Dasmarinas, SM Calamba, SM Sta Rosa, SM Lipa, SM San Pablo, SM Lucena, SM Marilao, SM Baliwag, SM Pampanga, SM Clark, SM Tarlac, SM Rosales, SM Baguio, SM Cebu, SM Consolacion, SM Iloilo, SM Delgado, SM Davao and SM Cagayan de Oro.
