Melissa Ricks was all smiles and elated to be back at this year's Star Magic Ball. After taking a hiatus from showbiz, the actress attended the gathering of stars with her best friend Empress Shuck.
"Ako sobrang saya ko. This year we might not have a date at least I have one of my best friends as a date. And we had fun upstairs and we are now we are enjoying downstairs and we are also workout buddies so masaya kaming dalawa na parang siyempre naninibago kaming dalawa because we have been gone for so long and it’s our first time coming back. Siyempre naka-gown and and naka-makeup so it’s really something girly and something kikay na we could do together," she said in an interview with PUSH.
She was also happy reuniting with old friends and meeting new Star Magic artists as well at the event.
"I’ve been gone for so long and I don’t know most of the Star Magic (artists) so I’m excited to meet all of them and to see them also and I’m excited to see all my friends na matagal ko ng hindi nakikita. I haven’t been active for four years so I haven’t seen them so I’m excited to see them and maybe surprise them na I’m here," she stated.
Asked if she is coming back to showbiz soon, she replied, "Right now I’m working on myself losing weight and gaining my confidence back so that’s what I’m working on first and to follow na ‘yung iba.”
