Francine Prieto sporting a sexier figure

FRANCINE PRIETO became the butt of jokes after she sashayed on the ramp looking so rolly polly in a fashion show. Some quarters naughtily called her a "balyenita" (small whale.) Last Sunday, she showed up at "Showbiz Central" to be interviewed by DJ Mo looking much slimmer. "I've lost 20 lbs," she says.

She said she got so depressed last year when she found out her mom has the big C and she turned to eating to comfort herself. "When I got at tawagin akong balyenita at inahing baboy, mas lalo akong na-depressed at lalo rin akong kumain."

Fanny Serrano got her as an endorser of a slimming pill and she signed a contract that she'll undero a strict diet and exercise regimen to help her lose her unwanted pounds. "It worked. Kasi dati, I starve myself thinking that's the way to lose weight. Hindi pala. I want to thank Tita Fanny for recommeding sa slimming pill na yun and now, I have a new figure. Now, I just have to maintain it para di na ko bumalik sa matabang Francine."
