Iris Mittenaere on rumors she’s a lesbian: ‘I think there’s no problem if I love  a girl or a boy'


021317-MsIris1t_PUSH.jpgOn Rated K, Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere shared how she still could not believe she won Miss Universe.

“Every morning, I see the sash, I watch the sash, and I watch the crown, too. To remember, yes I’m Miss Universe, and it’s difficult to believe in this because it’s like a dream,” she revealed.  

Iris also divulged she had a nightmare about not winning the beauty pageant. “I had a nightmare the first night and I dreamed that I was not Ms. Universe.  And Steve Harvey had a mistake and he said my name but it’s not me. I woke up and I look at the crown, and I was like, ‘okay, okay,’” she related.  

The 23-year-old fifth year dentistry student put her studies on hold to fulfill her duties as the winner, wherein she has lot of countries to visit including the Philippines. “I miss the people in the Philippines because they are very warm and very kind, and I miss the mango juice!” she said to Rated K host Korina Sanchez.

The pretty lass also shared her beauty regimen. “I use, I don’t know how to say it, you know water in a sprayer, and I use this in the morning and night before I go to sleep. And I put very good cream, which is for [skin] repair.”  

Whether or not she goes on a diet, Iris said, “I really love food. I love cooking, I love to eat, and I go to the gym.”

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Iris admitted she has work on the day of hearts.

“I don’t know! Actually, next week is fashion week and I will go to a lot of fashion shows. I will walk for Sherri Hill,” she said.  

There have been rumors regarding her sexuality as she is very close with another beauty queen, Camille Cerf. She expressed, “You know, I think there’s no problem if I love a girl or a boy. I think it’s the same.”

However, Iris admitted she has a boyfriend, Matthieu Declerq, who’s a dentist and was even with her in the Philippines for the pageant. “It’s very funny but you know Camille, is my best friend. I love her but I’m not in love with her. I have a boyfriend.”
