Kim, radiant in her off-white gown with silver accents, was wearing a pair of dangling earrings. But they’re not the ones Xian gave her.
“I kept them at home,” she revealed.
Kim spent her own money for the cash prizes she gave to her 400-strong fans that night. They had a talent showdown, went home with loot bags and had a sumptuous dinner.
A grateful Kim said it’s her way of paying back fans who always defend her from bashers and never fail to support her show. “Ako naman ang magpapa-party sa kanila ngayon,” she explained.

“It’s easy to forgive but it’s hard to forget,” Kim told “The Buzz” host Boy Abunda on Sunday, April 21.
