Billy Crawford wants to marry a Filipina
MY gosh, my God, natataranta talaga si Billy Crawford, kapag may movie reporter na nagtatanong sa kanya tungkol kay Kuya Germs (German Moreno to you and me), his discoverer and mentor.
Now the latest addition to Belo Medical Group stable of endorsers, Billy was asked by a movie reporter, during the contract signing cum presscon in his honor, if he took the time to inform Kuya Germs that he is now one of the endorsers of cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Vicki Belo.
“Kayo talaga, ha,” ang natatawang wika ni Billy. “Tinuturing ko namang mahalagang tao para sa akin si Tito Germs. Nagkataon lang na may sinusundan akong career path.”
It is this particular career path na balak tahakin ni Billy ang dahilan kung bakit Dr. Belo decided to have him sign up as endorser of his company.
As Dr. Vicki explained: “In short, I’d like to ride on his future popularity as a big name entertainer in America.”
Ayon kay Dr. Belo, target this year ng kanyang kumpanya to open branches of Belo Medical Clinic in Dubai and Beverly Hills in Hollywood.

NAITANONG nga pala namin kay Billy kung bakit maliban kay KC Concepcion, walang Filipina na nali-link sa kanya.
Type ba niyang maging girlfriend ay isang foreigner?
“That’s not true,” tugon niya sa unang tanong na walang ibang Filipinas nali-link sa kanya maliban kay KC. “Right now, sabi nila, kami daw ni Heart (Evangelista). Which is, of course, not true.
“I like Filipinas. In fact, I’d like to marry a Filipina. Just like my Dad. My Mom is a Filipina. And they’ve been married and still happily together for more than 25 years now.”
His parents both were formerly married to other persons. He has four siblings with both of them. Two with each of his parents.
His parents are based in Texas, where his Dad, an American, works as a petroleum consultant. His Dad is retiring next year.
Billy’s 26 and is currently one of the hosts ng Pinoy Dream Academy Season 2. He is also the mainanchor of Uberture on ABS-CBN.
Billy is seen, too, regularly performing in ASAP ‘08 and will soon be seen in an episode in Your Song.
Once linked to international singer Mandy Moore, Billy, before his trip back to the Philippines, had a girlfirend na three-and-a-half years niyang nakarelasyon.
